Rachel Maddow’s response to Bachmann’s official Tea Party response:
The Stockholm Metro, or Stockholms tunnelbana, is the metro system in Stockholm, Sweden. The system has three main lines and one hundred stations, 47 of which are subterranean and 53 are aboveground (surface and elevated) stations.
~ I like photos to be identified :)
Another bullshit study that I completely disagree with:
“While showing a happy face is considered essential to friendly social interactions, including those involving sexual attraction – few studies have actually examined whether a smile is, in fact, attractive,” says Prof. Jessica Tracy of UBC’s Dept. of Psychology. “This study finds that men and women respond very differently to displays of emotion, including smiles.”
In a series of studies, more than 1,000 adult participants rated the sexual attractiveness of hundreds of images of the opposite sex engaged in universal displays of happiness (broad smiles), pride (raised heads, puffed-up chests) and shame (lowered heads, averted eyes).
The study found that women were least attracted to smiling, happy men, preferring those who looked proud and powerful or moody and ashamed. In contrast, male participants were most sexually attracted to women who looked happy, and least attracted to women who appeared proud and confident.

I’d like to know exactly where these women are currently institutionalized…
I love seeing men smile. The issue is that these kinds of photos are rare — photographers POSE men to not smile. So now we’re conditioned to see men not smiling and that’s all we have to judge attractiveness. Google the men above and you’ll find hardly any images of them looking happy or laughing — but you will find a ton of Twilight-Emo poses to choose from.
Seriously, how could women not be attracted to a man who looks happy?

Looking onto Andean fields near Simiatug, Ecuador. My vantage point was from ~ 13,000 ft. The clouds filled the valley below as the sun began to set. I had never seen a sky quite like this.

I think this door needs one of those little stuffed dachshund draftguards.

It’s unclear whether this guy knocked off a police officer’s cap or was kicking barricades. In any event, he was stopped – cold.
