comment What causes laughter?
@DvirAdler I would say that laughter is the most common physical response to humor, when just a grin sometimes will do. Furthermore, there may be more symptoms arising from the recognition of humor.

comment Possibility of perfect virtual reality
Since hallucinations are already a form of "virtual" reality that is undistinguishable from actual reality to the subject, maybe studies on what causes them and on their mechanisms can help shed light on the feasibility of the proposed idea? Still, I don't think we'll get to a "yes/no" answer.

comment Could Fitts Law be used to measure difficulty in platform genre games?
Being a gamer myself, I would say IMHO that while it is a measurable factor of the game's difficulty, there are several others that highly affect it. Ben mentioned gravity, but motion controls, acceleration and deceleration, character velocity, control responsiveness and sensibility and probably others I'm forgetting make a huge difference.

@ArtemKaznatcheev Hi! I was waiting to see if an answer with a more specific approach to the problem appeared, but this one provides a starting point to the problem and I think it's acceptable as it does tackle the question. I will accept it as an answer, thank you.

comment How do cooperative vs. competitive activities impact the learning patterns of an individual?
Thanks guys! (I'm seeing both of you around and I see you're doing a great job). No, I'm not interested in any particular age group, but I would accept an answer which is based on children, since most of the heavy-imprint learning happens there. And yes, this would include sports, games of any type, common activities and everything which can be compared from the cooperative vs. competitive point of view. "Personality development" is a broad term for me, there's probably a better word. I try to go with everything that makes people biased to a specific way of thinking/acting rather than other.
