alternative to violence...

tickling, it's harmless and it disables almost anyone..
Next time you want to stop a crime or defend yourself, use tickling.  Peacemaking would be a lot more fun that way  :wink:

If your robbing a bank and your pants fall down, I think its allright to laugh, and let the hostages laugh too, because, hey, life is funny

Go through the orange yesterday

I watched intently for a while to both sides, infront of me and behind me.
I was impressed to learn there was another way to look... UP!
More impressive still was the fact that there were beautiful stars in this direction
Most amazing fact of all was the prospect of another direction when I was done with up. DOWN! Which, based on the feel through my toes would be a fine sandy beach!

Tickling someone without their express prior permission is a violent act. Imposing your will over someone else's is the basis of violence.

It's healthy, laughter is healthy, and it doesn't hurt.
It's philosophical violence yes, but it doesn't do damage to the psyche nor the body, in fact it benefits both

It's healthy, laughter is healthy and it doesn't hurt.

From web page :

(edited for brevity)

Dear Cecil:

Recently my girlfriend has been obsessed with tickling me. I hate it. I'm very ticklish and find it to be real torture. She on the other hand enjoys being tickled and says it even turns her on.

My questions are: (a) Why are some people ticklish and others not? (b) Is it true the Chinese used tickling as torture? (c) Can you actually tickle someone to death? (d) If so, how would death result? --W.L.M., Chicago

Dear W.:

The physical mechanism of tickling is not well understood (it's thought to be associated with the sense of pressure in some way). Nor is it known why some people are more ticklish than others.

Nonetheless, it's clear that tickling is no mere idle diversion. Rather, it's a profoundly ambiguous act fraught with numerous mundo bizarro psychosexual implications. No jive.

Consider, for instance, that you cannot tickle yourself.

From this we deduce not only that it takes two to tickle, but that the tickling sensation is associated with a loss of control over the relationship.

Furthermore, consider the fine line between pleasure and pain that tickling entails.

Can you literally be tickled to death? Maybe. According to researcher Joost Meerloo, who wrote a monograph on laughter some years ago, it's possible to die laughing.

Epidemics of laughing, a type of mass hysteria, have been noted since the Middle Ages, and similar episodes are occasionally reported in the medical literature today. For instance, 1,000 people in Tanganyika suffered a mass laughing fit lasting several days in 1963.

Most of the victims of laughing fits recover. But some die from a combination of starvation and exhaustion. You can't eat or sleep while laughing, and we all know if you try to drink it just sprays out your nose.

As for being tickled to death, Meerloo offers a possibly apocryphal story about a sadistic method of torture devised by the Romans (and for all I know, used by the Chinese as well).

The victim is strapped to a scaffold and his feet are dipped in a salt solution. Then a goat, attracted by the salt, licks the victim's feet with its raspy tongue. This drives the poor sap nuts with laughter.

--CECIL ADAMS

You've convinced me, beating and fire arms are a better option after all

You make Swami sad because of your conclusion-jumping. :frown: Have we not learned the basics of logic here on this Forum? Have I failed that miserably?

How can I convince you of something I never said nor even remotely implied?

the point was that, even thought this thread was ment to be a half-joke, that tickling can be a nicer way of disabeling someone than beating him or killing him.
Then you came with proof that tickling can be dangerouns, so
I supose you are trying to tell me that tickling has its dangers too.
The point of my sarcasm was: Even if it is dangerous, it is ridiculous to compare it with shooting someone in the leg or stomach

If he was talking about the tickle of laughter itself then, he has a point. Ever been in a heated situation and someone says or does something so funny you just bust a tense gut wide open with laughter and it just diffuses the intensity of the situation.

I agree with the physical form not being cool. I don't like it either. My uncle use to do it until I couldn't breath. It was torture to me. But boy, do I love it when someone busts up intense heat and friction with something funny.

When my daughter starts getting intense and looses it, I will look to make a funny out of the situation to bring her back to herself. It always works. People take themselves and their dramas to freaking seriously sometimes.

But if you catch someone robbing your place or preparing to rape some a friend of yours, it doesn't matter much how sensitive he is to tickle, you are not trying to make him feel pleasant, but disable him in the most friendly way until the police comes.

I mean if people are prepared to hit or beat or even kill such a man, than where does this debate about how upleasant tickling can be come from?

It is supose to play the role of violence anyway, only on a more fun way for both of you...
