    He said money has never been important to him, adding: "I think laughter is extremely important.

    He said the secret to his longevity was "to avoid dying".

    Cannot argue with that!

    I think the ability to laugh at oneself and one's situation is very important.

    The rest of laughter I find to be mostly schadenfreude. I mean, once in awhile, someone laughs for joy or such, but not too often, IMO
