Once photography became widespread it took only seconds to take a picture. It was because getting your photo taken was treated the same as getting your portrait painted. A very serious occasion meant so thst your descendants would know that ypu existed and what you looked like. But one time some British dudes went to china to go on an anthropological expedition, and they met some rural Chinese farmers and decided to take their pictures. Now, these people weren’t exposed to the weird culture of the time around getting your photo taken, so this guy just flashed a big grin during the photo because he was told to strike a pose and that’s the pose he wanted to strike. I think painted portraits and old photos give us the idea that in general people were just really unhappy because those are the visuals we have. This is so refreshing. Hey, look; “Man Laughing Alone With Rice” is back on my dash. always reblog Happy Rice Guy. once upon a time, he really enjoyed his lunch, and that’s beautiful.

I’m just telling her how wonderful you are, and how beautiful, and how organised, and… Lola: Actually, you know, I really should put all of this on tape, you know? For when I’m not feeling so great. Robert: Sweetheart, it is on tape.  [BOTH LAUGH] Robert: Just in the last couple of months now, it’s come on real strong, but she just really blushes! I can get her to blush all the way from head to toe. See? And she can’t deal with it! She’s never blushed like that before! Lola: [SIGHS] [BOTH LAUGH] Robert: All my life, I’ve been looking for the perfect woman… and all this time, she’s been right there in front of me, and I didn’t even realise it, ‘cause I never thought I’d have a chance with her. Lola: Why? You’re like… completely loveable. Robert: To be loved by you, that’s… that’s… Lola: I had no notion, to think that we would have this little fling. Robert: That’s what I feel - we have this nice friendship, we can’t go out, we have fun together, we got no entanglements and stuff and then - bam! Just… all of a sudden, next thing I know, we’re in love with each other and we can’t stop it. END TRANSCRIPT]
