I know it sounds bad, but there is nothing that makes me laugh more than someone falling over. If I can tell that it is a bad fall and the person is seriously hurt, then I will not laugh at all, but I otherwise can’t stop myself. Laughing just seems to be a natural reaction when it happens.
I just watched a video showing three people falling down or up escalators in the most ridiculous way, mainly because they were drunk, but it looked so funny. One man’s fall was utterly confusing and it was bound to happen, due to the position he put himself in, which made it all the worse.
These were not really bad falls, as I watched a woman fall right from the top of an escalator right to the very bottom and it was not funny. I stood there with my mouth wide open and was genuinely concerned for the woman’s safety.
Watching someone slip on the floor or fall up some stairs can be the funniest thing ever, as long as I can tell they’re okay and I’m not afraid to admit it. It seems that I’m just a sucker for people falling over.
