    - crying: kind of the most effective thing actually..
    - listening to hard rock music and jumping around singing along with lines that suit your situation
    - talking to a good friend or just hanging around finding distractions
    - hugging
    - All of these at the same time. :)

    Nothing.

    I accept sadness as a part of life and would no more temper it than I do happiness.
    If in every life a little rain must fall, then what's left but to enjoy the stormy weather?

    I listen to Bright Eyes until I feel better. Sometimes I have to listen to them for months straight. But it always ends up working.

    1. Hunt down Alex and talk to him (if he's online).
    2. Call my best friend.
    3. Call my insignificant other (if I have one).
    4. Kill monsters.
    5. Go to my friend's and do shots and watch a movie then pass out with him.

    -Eat chocolate
    -go riding
    -lose myself in a book, because at that time someone else's life is preferable to my sadness
    -listen to Green Day.

    drink beer or sit down and work out why I feel sad and what I can do to remedy it. But usually drink beer. :p
    Watching a movie sometimes helps as it takes my mind off things.

    Usually consume a lot of bourbon or whisky.

    If it's really bad I will listen to some bhangra. Although I'm not asian it's impossible to listen to bhangra and not be cheered up.

    Yeah, if I'm really really sad I'll take a shot of whiskey. It never helps but hey, what can I say.

    Listen to a short playlist of music that starts with sad music and then progresses to anger, then confusion, then relaxing. Then I meditate.

    Noooooo!.....

    Happy endings are so... aaaargh. They make me want to shout. If I feel sad, the hero must die. At the very least.

    Meditation to get my mind clear again and letting me really some time to "come back" as I like to flee this world and this plane for some time when feeling sad.
