The Worth of a Smile

January 9, 2012 in Daily Bulletin

Researchers at Bangor University found a way to value a smile. Some key results of their analysis include:

  • Each smile is worth 1/3rd of a penny, meaning that three smiles will net you one British penny
  • However this is only the case if the smiles are genuine. Non-genuine smiles are worth nothing
  • Genuine smiles during times of misery are not appreciated
