Almost all the smiles of mine that are captured on pictures though look absolutely idiotic because I'd pull that face on purpose.



    Indeed, if always-happy and always-humorous Bavarians like Thussy or myself can't even smile all the time, it's got to mean something. And no, C-Man --- it's not a freak Prussian gene responsible.
    lol I do the same thing, when I am scheming or planning something I usually feel like smiling and laughing under my breath. In my senior picture people commented "it looks like your up to no good" and "what is up with that cheesy look on your face?" because when I am forced to smile like for a school pic it often comes out kind of cheeky haha.

    I think folks of Scottish descent aren't good at "Faking a smile." I knew an Irish guy the same way. He had a great smile when he was really happy.

    My wife says I look like Bender from Futarma when I fake one.

    Better we never meet then, because I smile a lot, but in the bad way (showing false regards and sneaky attitude).

    Some are born that way...

    I forgot some of the people that have blood from chinese/mongolia/thailand, they smile 24/7. And some mongloids also smile all day. I know one girl that looks like she smiles all day but she is a real happy girl!

    Scots Not Smiling

    I am not 100% Scottish but do have a good bit in my background and I do not like to smile all that much. I do not think I smile well and my face does hurt if I smile a lot

    Once again, Skadi helps me feel normal.
    People always are telling me that I "walk around looking pissed off all the time, try a smile.." When my face is neutral I guess I look angry
