No Laughing Matter

Objavil ekscest, dne 14.12.2009

“A man, running along the street, stumbles and falls; the passers-by burst out laughing. They would not laugh at him, I imagine, could they suppose that the whim had suddenly seized him to sit down on the ground. They laugh because his sitting down is involuntary.
Consequently, it is not his sudden change of attitude that raises a laugh, but rather the involuntary element in this change,–his clumsiness, in fact. Perhaps there was a stone on the road. He should have altered his pace or avoided the obstacle. Instead of that, through lack of elasticity, through absentmindedness and a kind of physical obstinacy, as a result, in fact, of rigidity or of momentum, the muscles continued to perform the same movement when the circumstances of the case called for something else. That is the reason of the man’s fall, and also of the people’s laughter.”1

When one morning a man non involuntary sits – or even lies – down, no one is laughing no more.

“Nekdo, ki je tekel po ulici, se spotakne in pade: mimoidoči se zasmejejo. Mislim, da se mu ne bi smejali, če bi mogli domnevati, da se mu je na lepem zahotelo sesti na tla. Smejejo se temu, da se je usedel nehote. Ne smejejo se torej temu, da je naglo spremenil položaj, temveč se smejejo nehotenosti te spremembe, nespretnosti. Mogoče se je na njegovi poti znašel kamen, treba bi bilo drugače stopiti ali obiti oviro. Zaradi premajhne gibčnosti, zaradi raztresenosti ali vztrajnosti telesa, zaradi togosti ali pridobljene hitrosti so mišice še naprej opravljale enako gibanje, ko so okoliščine terjale nekaj drugega. Zato je človek padel in temu se mimoidoči smejejo.”

Ko se nekega jutra nekdo ne nehote usede, celo uleže na tla, ni več nikomur do smeha.
