How well do you read faces? Better than this baby, I hope.

I didn't like this because in the end, they don't tell you what emotions the model was going for, just what "one of America's top policeman" thinks. Feh.

Oh! It's a snake!

The cops answers are all from the point of view of a patrolman who just stopped someone while driving eratically. Basically, "Well, he's pissed off, and I may have to subdue him."

My answers lined up pretty closely with Mr. Cleese's. this does wonders to make me feel good about myself.

Now if only I could do a believable english accent...

My answers were closer to Cleese's than the cop's, but if either were mostly right most of the time I'm not very good at it.

And yes to what chaz said: I wish they'd have told me at the end what it was supposed to be.

I didn't get any audio on that clip of the photo shoot; was there any? If so, what was the explanation?

I think they must have sedated that snake pretty heavily.

This is incredibly stupid.

It's interesting to me that every single one of the cops replies were basically just "threat assessment" (is the guy pissed off? Is he going to take a swing at me?).

Think of what that would do to your world view !

I'd way rather be pulled over by John Cleese than a cop.

yay, good to see you again, homunculus - it's been too long between your posts - it ain't the same without you!

Fun links. It didn't bother me that they didn't offer an explanation for what it was 'supposed' to be - the point seems to have more to do with what people think it is, which will depend on results. But I might have liked a few more comparisons than just a cop and Cleese - maybe a woman, for example. Although my answers tracked almost exactly with Cleese's response right down to some of the language.

on preview, you have a good point there the Real Dan.

Funny. Reminds me of Study Reveals: Babies are Stupid from the Onion a few years back.

maybe a woman, for example

Cleese often dresses as a woman. That must count for something.

Nice to see you again too, juju!
