Wow, so many people who hate smiling in here. Screw you all, I look forward to living longer than you and spreading joy with my smile.

It carries a good message, but I think to be truely effective it should counteract the arguement with the benefits and detriments of frowning (as well as the spectrum of all facial expressions that can be typically created)

In evolutionary terms, we wouldn't have inhereted any of these traits if they hadn`t served some sort of purpose to our survival at any given time in the past lives of our ancestors.

Also I`d question the advice given by anyone who says simply to `smile` and things will get better. as smiling when you aren`t happy can actually cause adverse effects due to the supression of your genuine emotions.

tl;dr It`s not about your smiling, it`s about what you`re thinking (it`s just if what your thinking genuinely makes you smile, it can be transferred across into other minds)
