I resent that! I just have very skinny toes. It's a real condition, ok?

Like the great Ty Cobb said, "There's three things I love in life - hitting a baseball, hitting a bottle, and hitting a good woman."

So why does it seem that mean old crabby people live forever?

I just like to smile, smiling's my favorite.

Because it takes a lot of effort for happy people to maintain the self-delusion that life is just peachy and they eventually burn out. Crabby people know that life sucks and just go with it.

/working on my crabbiness

I'm going to superglue my face into a Joker-esque rictus. Then I'll live forever.

Like the old saying goes: The more you complain, the longer God lets you live.

The conclusion of the article and the headline are completely unsupported by the data presented.

Hit the books? What? Where was there any correlation between education/studying and the smiles of the players? There was no mention of that, anywhere.

Hit the ball? HuH? They were ALL baseball players. Presumably, they ALL could hit the ball better than 99.99999% of the general population and hit more balls than 99.99999% of the population. Did the study find that those with a better batting average smiled more largely in the photos? No? So what the hell is it doing in the conclusion of the article?

The only factor measured in the study was how the players were smiling. You could say, 'If you want to live a long life - smile bigger' and even that would confuse correlation and causation - but I've come to expect that from crappy internet articles. But, just adding random crap? What the hell?

"If you want to live a long life - tie your left shoe first, and smile".

But of course palmistry is fake, right?

Yeah, it was retarded. What if some of them had bad teeth, and didn't like to smile big? Would they die young?

I need a research grant immediately to study the premise that "if you want to be happy for the rest of your life, never make a pretty woman your wife."

wait, didn't some other research link bad teeth to heart disease?

Correlation is not tantamount to Causation, you ignorant fark.

Let's analyze WHY they're smiling first....I'm sure there's correlation between their attitude and their health.

Baseball stats--is there anything they can't do?
 
2010-03-25 12:02:54 PM  
if hiting the ball is a euphamism, I'm never getting out of here. Life is an argument for celibacy.

Also, never eat another mans fries.

Q: Why do self aware people die younger than oblivious people?
A: They want to.

For the first time, I am noticing the pain in his eyes from having to hold his face in that position...

"Nature gives us the face we have until 20,
we chose the face we show until 50,
but after 50 we have the face that we deserve."

/want to attribute that to a great thinker, but Google seems somewhat conflicted on the subject
