    During sparring, I've noticed that those who occasionnally smile are the ones that are levels better than me.

    Grinning motherfuckers.
    I was just making the connection to the "you fight how you train" stuff. It helped me focus, smiling could end in me goofing off a bit sometimes so training it out of me during the time I am meant to be serious was required. Especially when I am training for a fight.

    Could be a lot of things. Thus my initial complaint that they said plainly that baring teeth is a submissive display.

    This tiger shows his teeth, almost seems friendly right?

    He's most likely communicating to this girl "if this cage wasn't here I'd be eating you and your family, right now".

    Understood. Maybe I read too fast, but I don't believe they made that bold of a statement. I took them as saying they strongly feel/believe this way.

    Either way, there will likely be future studies which will hopefully reveal more definite results.

    I'm not sure at whom this is directed, or really what point you're trying to illustrate. Are you agreeing or disagreeing with someone?

    Okay, but this stuff is sort of tenuous to tack on to humans when you're just considering primatology.

    If it isn't obvious, you are probably over thinking it.

    Who tacked anything on to humans?

    I am talking about tigers eating entire families. It seems as arbitrary as guessing what someone's smile indicates.

    Dexter's smile indicates he's about to kill again.

    Oops, didn't realize this was an article about tigers.

    But they're guessing what someone's smile indicates by reviewing many case studies of people and general principles of primatology (sort of). Seems less arbitrary than throwing a tiger vid into a thread about people without any commentary linking the two (tacking the two together, if you will).

    Dexter's smile indicates he's about to kill again.
    Dexter would probably be an outlier in a study that showed general patterns of when people smile.

    You're right they were guessing, and looks CAN be deceiving. Fifty points for your House.

    Maybe. Or, a textbook example of someone who smiles because they are being mischievous.
