Try not to smile. It's impossible.

Turn on your music, something upbeat. I suggest White Stripes as a good place to start.

Then try not to giggle.

(Also check out "Strobe". With that one, I don't suggest looking at a cat - their natural animosity and contempt is amplified...)

I didn't smile or giggle, but honestly I don't know what I'm supposed to be doing other than moving around balls while playing music.

....^If that's it, then I don't see what's funny.

This was the best political campaign ad that I have ever seen. If this guy ran in Idaho (where I'm from) he would certainly win ag commissioner. He'd be right at home too. Our third party candidates change their names to things like "Pro-Life" and other guys run for senate and governor because they had a bunch of elk killed due to a bruscellosis scare.

Anyway, here's my contribution to the smile fest. http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/humanbody/ ... ndex.shtml

13/20 correct.

I found the best way to tell a fake smile is how fast the smile goes away. But apparently it's not 100%. More like 65%. :P

I got 15/20

Its all about how much of their face they use. If they just move their mouth, more likely than not, they are faking.

I got 15 out of 20. Would have got 17, if I'd gone with my gut on two of them.

The Truth About College:

College is a bunch of rooms where you sit for 2,000 hours or so and
try to memorize things. The 2,000 hours are spread out over four
years. You spend the rest of the time sleeping, partying, and trying to
get dates.

Basically, you learn two kinds of things in college:

1. Things you will need to know in later life (two hours). 2. Things you
will not need to know in later life (1,998 hours).

The latter are the things you learn in classes whose names end in
-ology, -osophy, -istry, -ics, and so on. The idea is you memorize
these things, then write them down in little exam books, then forget
them. If you fail to forget them, you become a professor and have to stay
in college for the rest of your life.

After you've been in college for a year or so, you're supposed to
choose a major, which is the subject you intend to memorize and
forget the most things about. Here is a very important piece of
advice: Be sure to choose a major that does not involve Known Facts
and Right Answers. This means you must not major in mathematics,
physics, biology, chemistry, or geology because these subjects
involve actual facts.

If, for example, you major in mathematics, you're going to wander
into class one day and the professor will say: "Define the cosine
integer of the quadrant of a rhomboid binary axis, and extrapolate
your result to five significant vertices." If you don't come up with
exactly the answer the professor has in mind, you fail.

The same is true of chemistry: If you write in your exam book that
carbon and hydrogen combine to form oak, your professor will flunk
you. He wants you to come up with the same answer he and all the
other chemists have agreed on. Scientists are extremely snotty about
this.

So you should major in subjects like English, philosophy, psychology, and
sociology - subjects in which nobody really understands what anybody else
is talking about, and which involve virtually no actual facts.

I attended classes in all these subjects, so I'll give you a quick
overview of each:

ENGLISH: This involves writing papers about long books you have read
little snippets of just before class. Here is a tip on how to get good
grades on your English papers: Never say anything about a book that
anybody with any common sense would say. For example, suppose you are
studying Moby Dick. Anybody with any common sense would say Moby Dick is
a big white whale, since the characters in the book refer to it as a big
white whale roughly 11,000 times. So in your paper, you say Moby Dick is
actually the Republic of Ireland. Your professor, who is sick to death of
reading papers and never liked Moby Dick anyway, will think you are
enormously creative. If you can regularly come up with lunatic
interpretations of simple stories, you should major in English.

PHILOSOPHY: Basically, this involves sitting in a room and deciding
there is no such thing as reality and then going to lunch. You should
major in philosophy if you plan to take a lot of drugs.

PSYCHOLOGY: This involves talking about rats and dreams.
Psychologists are obsessed with rats and dreams. I once spent an
entire semester training a rat to punch little buttons in a certain
sequence, then training my roommate to do the same thing. The rat
learned much faster. My roommate is now a doctor. If you like rats or
dreams, and above all if you dream about rats, you should major in
psychology.

SOCIOLOGY: For sheer lack of intelligibility, sociology is far and
away the number one subject. I sat through hundreds of hours of
sociology courses, and read gobs of sociology writing, and I never
once heard or read a coherent statement. This is because sociologists
want to be considered scientists, so they spend most of their time
translating simple, obvious observations into scientific-sounding code.
If you plan to major in sociology, you'll have to learn to do the same
thing. For example, suppose you have observed that children cry when they
fall down. You should write: "Methodological observation of the
sociometrical behavior tendencies of prematurated isolates indicates that
a causal relationship exists between groundward tropism and lachrimatory
behavior forms." If you can keep this up for 50 or 60 pages, you will get
a large government grant.

I totally laughed at Bert. It was the trying not to laugh that made it burst out, in the end.

His eyes... They stare right through your soul. His expressionless mouth an ominous and unsettling warning that lurking just behind his vacant face lies the malevolent soul of a merciless slayer who will cut you in your sleep with no remorse. He is not a killer for the thrill of it; rather, he executes his grim task out of intractable duty.

Having seen the picture tons of times, I did not laugh.

But this, good sir. This made me laugh, combined with the picture.

Well played.
