A link to BBC's science section which asks to spot the fake smiler. I surprised myself by getting 17 correct answers. Press the play button then decide. Click here.

At the end it asks "What part of the face was most useful for discriminating between fake and real smiles?". Not really thinking about it I replied the eyes. Having thought about it, it must be more than the "eyes", but I can't put a finger on it.......

I put cheek dimples, you can put a finger on those...

Surprised myself with 17/20. It seems that I am too gullible and can get taken in by a fake smile. Perhaps that why I will soon celebrate my 48th wedding anniversary.
