This post is just for fun.

These are just photographs I picked of people laughing or smiling.

As an exercise, 1)list three thoughts about each of the photographs and then 2)estimate what percentage of the population of the United States would have radically dissimilar thoughts upon seeing these same photographs. Who recognizes the Dalai Lama as a religious figure or a political figure or at all? Age and sex will produce varying observations about Denise Milani. What proportion of Americans under 50 know anything about Albert Einstein? Now that the election of 2008 is over, what do most Americans think of Hilary Clinton? The world we live in is far more fractured than we often have time to consider.
