'Resting bitch face' is real, scientists say
http://edition.cnn.com/2016/02/03/health...index.html

I'm surprised RBF is so similar to a normal, neutral face (6% emotion versus 3% emotion). I guess humans are tuned to identify very small differences. Here's an excerpt:

Quote:Reading your face
Here's how the software works: Scientists pick a neutral-looking image of a person — one in which they aren't smiling — and run it through the FaceReader software. The software then registers the face and gives a percentage of underlying emotions it's picking up.

On an average reading, the software will register a face at 97% neutral. But there's about 3% of an underlying expression, Macbeth explained. That 3% is made of emotions that show traces of sadness, happiness or anger, for example.

"We see that people who have this RBF expression [have] double the amount of emotionality expressed," she said. Those afflicted with RBF may show a jump of trace emotions as high as 6% and most of the emotion expressed is of contempt: the feeling that something is worthless or deserving scorn.

Subtle facial expressions like a slightly pulled-back lip or squinting eyes are read as contempt, Macbeth said.

Celebrities with neutral faces are people like Jennifer Aniston and Blake Lively, Macbeth said. Although their faces are neutral, according to the software, people will register Aniston and Lively's faces as happy faces.

So what does this mean if you think you have RBF? Is there some hidden amount of contempt boiling up inside you? Some unresolved issues that you need to talk about? Macbeth said there's not a clear-cut answer just yet.

Cultural differences and gender bias may play a role in people's perception of RBF. "Eastern European people are seen as very stoic and not showing a lot of emotion and ... a lot of the people touted as having RBF are women," Macbeth said.

Mm hmm.

So that's the reason why Sarah Connor was hated by Skynet.

We need Google glass to detect a bitch face?

That was the cunt suing her parents for college money right? And I think her friends father was helping with the legal? I only remember that because he had to be banging her. Can't see a stupid asshole getting involved in a family matter.

Bang her early (18 and up). She is going to age poorly.

I have a theory on this. Ever notice how when rich people do anything, they work hard not to smile?

If I was driving a one million dollar car, you'd bet I'd be enjoying myself. But rich people seem to work really hard to avoid looking like they are enjoying themselves while driving said car, as if to say, "I do this all the time, no big deal."

Perhaps that girls with RBF have it from a history of making a conscious effort to frown and look unimpressed with everyone and everything around them. They can pull this off when they are young, but as the facial muscles deteriorate with age, they end up just looking like the bitch they are 24/7.

Any merit to this?

Suits there is that expression act like you have been there before. So I guess you have a point. Oir society is constantly driven by insecurities and the desire to say I'm better than you. Just a weird thing I think. People constantly want to let you know maybe without saying it. Like the guys who have a nice watch and make sure their shirt cuff is tucked under the watch.

Back when BMW was all the thing the motto was, I forget, I think the ultimate driving machine. But some marketer in an article I read recently said BMW meant I am better than you.

I know I should be quoting shit but tablets are annoying.

Yeah, the friend's father was either banging her or trying to make a name for himself.

When the lawsuit didn't work, she moved back in with her parents and claimed the boyfriend she left home for choked her.

When that accusation backfired (he got a restraining order against her), she dropped the charges.

She's another bitch trying to pay a victim to cover her own selfish and horrific behavior.

I read a book about this. They said that the facial muscles can actually reshape the bones to help create a face that reflects the inner person. It was 70s pop psychology but it was pretty interesting.

You've seen a lot more rich people than you realize. Most of them don't buy flashy cars. The ones that do remind themselves to act calm "like they've been there before" as samsamsam said.

I'd knock that smirk right off that face, or die trying.

I live in China. I occasionally see some dickhead who was born into money driving a Ferrari, Lambo, Maserati, but 90% of the time, it's a bitch-faced woman who either has an extremely rich father or married rich.

My best guess is that the guy bankrolling her is driving a BMW at best.
