    That is a cluelessly ponderous and outrightly insipid question. Well done.

    On that note: Psychologists believe that tickling is a non-threatening form of assault and we laugh because of the adrenaline produced by the flight or fight syndrome, always aware that we are in no actual danger.

    Now I have a few questions for you.

    Have you actually been trying to tickle yourself recently?
    How much free time do you actually have on your hands?
    Have you been doing this experiment with your eyes closed?
    Have you tried sitting on your hands first to make them numb?
    Do you watch cartoons a lot?

    "Brain scientists at the University College London have pinpointed the cerebellum as the part of the brain that prevents us from self-tickling. The cerebellum is the region located at the base of the brain that monitors our movements. It can distinguish expected sensations from unexpected sensations. An expected sensation would be the amount of pressure your fingers apply to your keyboard while typing. An unexpected sensation would be someone sneaking up behind you and tapping you on the shoulder. While the brain discards the sensation of typing, it pays a lot of attention to someone tapping on your shoulder. The difference in reactions from expected to unexpected is a built-in response that probably developed in early human history to detect predators."

    Unless you're Ron Jeremy.

    I've actually wondered why you can't tickle yourself, and now thanks to Voivod, I have the answer.

    Thats a cool link, thanks for posting. It is strange then, why do are brains not allow a tickle sensation if it is our on fingers but they do allow us to stimulate ourselfs in other mannors.
