comment What is the underlying grammar in the difference between `足らない` and `足りない`?
Strange, how did I manage to miss that. Searching 足る on nihongoresources.com with search criteria limited to verbs generated zero results. Not limiting the search criteria manages to get me the verb though. @ZhenLin if you would put it as an answer I'll accept it and conclude this question.

comment How does this meaning of 笑えないかな work?
I think you could have better treated the question. I think 笑えないか is not equivalent to 笑えないかな. The former asserts that one can laugh through use of a negative question, the latter seems to convey a higher degree of uncertainty because of ~かな. How that translates into English I'm not sure.

Looks like it's time to bring in Singlish (or Singaporean english).
