COMPUTER DECODES MONA LISA'S SMILE
Scientists analyzed the portrait of the Mona Lisa, a woman with famously mixed emotions, hoping to unlock her smile. They applied emotion recognition software that measures a person's mood by examining features such as the curve of the lips and the crinkles around the eyes.

All the wondering and debating it throughout the centuries and it comes down to computer analysis. And the computer analysis says... she is happy. What a let down, they should have just let it go and keep letting people wonder and talk about it. Now we know, and its no big thing now.
OK tell me he didn't say that? Is that person like totally gay or something or did he like know Mona Lisa in a previous life? rolleyes
Wow, everyone knew Mona Lisa was happy. This analysis was a major letdown and majority of people already knew this. What a shocker, don't you agree?
I always thought that she was smiling. I know some do not smile a big teeth flashing smile so I do not understand the big deal about this painting. Yes it is a nice painting of a smiling woman painted by a famous painter. So what? I think it would be nice to have but also think a museum is the best place for it.
