"It is true, and thus the question of whether it is sad or happy has no meaning whatever."
Bernhard Schlink

Since one of my favorite courses in college was one entitled "The Psychobiology of Emotion," it should come as no surprise that I think this study is really cool. It appears that Americans tend to smile in a less genuine fashion than Englishmen. That that doesn't fit (at all, really) with cultural stereotypes is less important to me than the lead scientist saying that "George Bush’s smile emerged as cynical rather than pleasurable." Sound familiar?
