We’ve all heard somebody at some point say they thought something was so funny that they thought they might “die laughing.” Well, no joke, that can actually happen! Here’s how:
- Ruptured Brain Aneurysm – If you happen to be unknowingly walking around with an aneurysm in your brain, one good laugh could make it rupture, and you’re a goner
- Asthma Attack – Hard laughing can lead to hyperventilation…and that’s a problem if you’re asthmatic and forgot your inhaler
- Gelastic Seizure – Laughing uncontrollably could be a sign of gelastic epilepsy. It’s rare, though, with 1-in-1,000 kids suffering from it
- Suffocation – If someone isn’t taking enough oxygen in during their laughing fit, there could be a risk of asphyxiation or even cardiac arrest
So, be hysterical at your own risk.
