6 Billion variations on a theme……

Thought for the day…” You will never find a rainbow if you are looking down”s

” Go to Heaven for the climate, and to Hell for the company”.

It is amazing the variations that are possible with just 2 eyes, one nose and one mouth.      And add to that emotions and the variations become endless.    The English language has more than 400 words which describe emotions and sentiments, and studies have shown that when people are trying to conceal emotions, that they subconsciously show ‘micro emotions’ very rapidly.    For smiles, there are around 18 different types of smile, ranging from polite to cruel and false.   And body language also reflects our emotions, for instance, touching the nose often indicates that the person is hiding something.    Studies have estimated that the human face can make over 10 000 facial expressions, although most are too small to notice.      Few people are said to posses the perfect face, that is where both halves of the face have perfect symmetry, yet there are some 6 billion faces worldwide.   6 billion variations on 2 eyes, one nose and a mouth……here is one of them, a few years ago in Pakistan….

Thought for the day….” Most of the problems in life are because of two reasons, we act without thinking, or we keep thinking without acting”.

Did you know that the world’s longest place name is in New Zealand….Taumata­whakatangihanga­koauau­o­tamatea­turi­pukakapiki­maunga­horo­nuku­pokai­whenua­kitanatahu     Wonder how many points that would get if you could use it in Scrabble.   The word that has scored the most points in Scrabble is “BENZOXYCAMPHORS” which, when placed on the edge of the board (to use triple word scores) earned a whopping 1970 points.    For a single word, try caziques, which earns 392 points.

And for the photo today, a male baboon in Zambia.  Baboons can live up to 30 years, and live in large groups which are called “troops”.  Lions and hyenas are their main predators.
