The better question would be, how often do you make someone else laugh!
I laugh a lot, because I'm surrounded by idiots, so this is not a fair poll. :-)
I have heard it said that you can divide people into two groups: those you laugh with and those you laugh at.

I laugh so often that I've lost track ... (which might be anything between 1 and 100 times a day), but nevertheless I think that I don't laugh often enough.

Other - I don't think I've ever counted it. Counting laughs doesn't strike me as a fun thing to be doing, unless your one of them...

You know....

A statistician

I've never counted either, but I am nonetheless fairly confident that a mere 100 times per day would be a rather lowball figure.

I may not laugh out loud - but I often laugh inside.

When I happen to walk by a television airing a Fox news segment (4-8 times a day at work).
That's more likely to make me cry. Even when it's on the Daily Show.

isn't on the hour every hour going to work out to be within the range 1-24 times a day?

Come to that, is the 1-24 times a day meant to catch just the people who laugh exactly 24 times a day? they wouldn't fall into either less than 24 times or 25-50 times? (these latter categories exclude 24, whereas 1-24 includes it), maybe just too many choices and ill thought out boundaries.

I, of course, answered "never"

Actually, every hour is meant for people who laugh while sleeping...

Well I think that laughing too much may be a problem.

All the time.

I write code for a living. After a point the insanity just takes hold. Once in a while I can muster the will to stop and look out for the guys with the white coats.

Dr. Demento used to play They're coming to take me away, Ha-ha! which had a refrain (if I remember correctly) of "And I'll be so happy to meet those nice young men in their clean white coats"...

I had to go with other, mostly because more than one apply, and I'm not sure which to pick.

I'd go with: "Not often enough", and "So often I've lost track". I probably don't laugh more than 100 times a day... but that is slightly dependent on how one defines a single laugh. If I laugh for 30 seconds at a single joke, is that one laugh? Ten? How does one count semi-coherent giggling?

They say that time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.

Every time someone says "Perl is dead".

Or perhaps I should be crying?
It's not dead yet! (Well, not quite)
