getting the giggles that turn into sore ribs from laughing long and hard. i don't know of one word that would sum up this condition. i usually find myself cracking up at very inappropriate times and places.

"cracking up" is actually a pretty good description. Then there's always ROFLMAO, if you wish.

I always thought of it as "hysterical laughter".

You really have to excuse Craig on that, it's a girl thing to get those fits from scratch... and without any input of chemical substances (though I remember getting one of these when me and my - male - lab&cafeteria mate got - only semi-involuntary, hihi - quite high on diethyl ether in lab )

sich wegschmeissen vor lachen - to chuck yourself away with laughter

Zuckerhut (lit.: sugar-hat):
  • essential ingredient for Feuerzangenbowle (lekker!)

  • Rio de Janeiro's famous rock (Fernweh!) - not that Corcovado hadn't a beautiful ring to it, but it actually translates as 'hunchback'

^ well, might be that Aussie health cereals cause people to make similar noises - with a certain time delay after consuming them - than a Trabbi's (i.e. East German car brand Trabant) Auspuff makes

(Auspuff = exhaust pipe - isn't the onomatopoetic 'puff' part lovely - thanx Craig for pointing that out! )

innerer Schweinehund (=inner pig-dog):

Our personal moment of inertia, which causes us to be (as) lazy (as circumstances allow), procrastinate things until 5 minutes to 12 and search for the easiest way to get out or through something

The inner pig-dog is always a good excuse for all sorts of stuff

The only place a human can truely tickle themselves is by rubbing your tongue on the roof of your mouth. *I'll bet ya' thought it was somewhere else*
But don't try this, for it is aptly called an 'ickle-tickle'.

Bussi auf's Bauchi = kiss on belly

Saying good-bye to a close person (family member, lover, friend), most common in Bavaria and Austria (oh well, there a bit more loosely used, also to not that close/beloved people - Austrians throw large quantities of Bussis around as a rule ).

die Seele baumeln lassen = to let the soul dangle

Though we haven't found out what exactly soul is this is the state were you let it 'hang/swing/float loosely', i.e. relax, dream, feel good...
