Smiling’s , a difficult Job

February 5, 2007 at 1:10 am 8 comments

According to the old adage—-” It takes 46 muscles to frown but only 17 muscles to smile” . This implies that we should keep smiling and not frown . Wonderful the saying may be but is it really true ?

Smile and frown

David a student of medicine says — “It wasn’t until my first anatomy class in college that I realized these numbers couldn’t possibly be right. As far as I can tell, there are only about 36 named muscles of facial expression, and they’re not all involved in smiling and frowning. So which ones are responsible for smiling and/or frowning ?” Continue reading….

And here is another confirmation

Here’s What I have to say —“Perhaps this aphorism was just a way of passing on the fact that a smile does not cost anything but it can bring great value to the person it has been directed to. The number of muscles it requires to smile or frown is irrelevant. The real significance lies in the meaning of the saying . So keep smiling . Even if it does take that extra bit . It’ worth the effort isn’t it??? ”  🙂

    This comment is not really related to the blog. I just wanted to compliment Amit on the great job that he’s been doing.

    Amit, your blogs are a pleasure to read. Everytime I receive an orkut message from you announcing another blog I make it a point to read it no matter how preoccupied I am.

    Keep up the good work dude.
