Fluxus art involved the viewer, relying on the element of chance to shape the ultimate outcome of the piece. The use of chance was also employed by Dada, Marcel Duchamp, and other performance art of the time, such as Happenings.

It's a more socially acceptable version of "shit happens".
It can be used to:
1)express condolences for someone's situation without offering any apologetic words.
2)respond to a future problems that shows a sense of sadness/aggression towards it, but in a way without trying to complain
3)to shrug offa one's own, or someone else's, minor annoyance
4)substitute for an actual response, while still continuing the conversation
1)"My girlfriend just broke up with me"
2)"I'm not looking forward to this physics test tomorrow"
3)"I think the cafeteria is out of milk. (Ehh, it happens)"
4)"Sounds like you've had a long day"
Yeah, it happens.

Modern hippy hipster types who actually accomplish tasks of great magnitude and worth. A happener, much like our modern definition of a hipster, does have certain interests in counter culture lifestyle and the various accouterments that go along with such. The marked difference between a hipster (being frankly the modern version of the hippie or renaissance person), is that happeners are always involved in some great events. Happeners are the hero's of the universe. May statues be built in their honor.
