Even lack of sleep could be called a stimulant, due to chemical changes. Not sure what you're looking for. Laughter is a response to various stimuli. Anything that "brings on laughter" would be a stimulus, correct?

I was playing a videogame and I did not see anything that I found humorous but I had an urge to laugh. It was weird because right after I went to a website with funny videos/images and everything was normal. What could cause this to happen?

Stress.
Or, maybe something was funny but your conscious mind didn't pick up on it

What was the video game?  Sometimes we laugh at something quite dark (as a release of stress maybe as mentioned above)... 

 

I saw this clip from a video game where a soldier (with pretty good modern day graphics) was hiding behind a wall for a bit looking quite sneaky when, BAM!, all of a sudden a huge great tank comes SMASHING through the wall right where he was standing, totally obliterating him!....   this shouldn't really be funny....  you had to see it really,  but it gives one of those "WoW!" moments accompanied with laughter.... but really, there is nothing funny about a soldier being run over by a tank...  maybe it was the irony of it (being a metal tank and all...  bud um tiss!) - the irony of the guy thinking he was safe behind the wall then all of a sudden - BAM! Nothing left of him.

Thanks for the info. Do you reckon that breast production in males could correlate with this?

I doubt it, but there could be ample ability also.

 

PBA has to do with brain damage or neurological disorders.

The hormone imbalance that could cause growing of breasts in men may also have neurological side effects.

But I don't think it would be related to PBA.
