Step 1: Use Pavlovian techniques to train every new born child to smile when they see a sad face and look sad when they see a happy face.

Step 2: In 50 years, go to your nearest city centre and observe.

       Calum - what the..?!   

       What do you think will happen? That people will be constantly switching from happy to sad faces because they will have to keep reacting to the faces of the people who are reacting them ad infinitum? Erk, that's scary. A planet populated by humans with over-developed facial muscles. And wouldn't it be just the teensiest bit offputting during sex.....?

       If only this idea described a population addicted to throwing meringue desserts, then I'd vote for it.

       Fifty years is a long time to wait, but probably well worth it! Sort of like lighting a really long fuse and then running away; someone always forgets to look to see what time the fuse was lit.
