    Let us all do an experiment, please. 

    I want you to draw smiley faces on a pad of stickey notes and pass each smiley face out to unsuspecting people - total strangers.  Watch their reactions.  Do they smile back? Do they frown? Do they throw the smiley face on the ground? 

    Walk around the office and put a smiley face on everyone's cubicle - including the boss.  Put them up in the kitchen, refrigerator, where ever.  The waitress, the bus get the idea.

    Let me know what the reactions are and how many smiley faces you passed out.  The idea is to see how many people you can make smile in a day.

    Oh I don't have time for that stuff.... it's far easier sticking one on your forehead and not saying anything at all.  smile

    Besides, I much prefer to be one of those big black rubbish bags that jump out at people as they walk by! Maybe I can demonstrate how well I do that soon, to the nameless HP moderator who keeps sticking # No Index Tags on top quality poetry hubs that clearly don't fit the questionable expectations of that party!  sad

    I can see a series of Hubs being created from this.

    Keep the ornery and interesting ideas coming!

      Well, I can certainly see that people don't want to pass our smiley faces to make others smile.  It was a thought, I'll just get other people to do it.  I was just wanting to make everyone happy the giver and receiver.  It's always nice to be smiled at.

      It's not ornry, it's thoughtful.  Not enough thoughtful people around anymore. So sad.

    Hi, I am new to the Hub pages and just looking around, I thought I would read some of the forum.  I read your post and it made me SMILE - so thanks for that.  It also made me think about something to write about, having newly arrived here I thought it would be simple to think of something but that first page is probably the hardest to do I suspect (and secretly hope it gets easier).  So Thank you for that also.

    I wouldn't mind but I came here by accident having followed a link and then having read the item and feeling more informed on the subject I wanted to leave a message of Thanks.  I could not find a way to do this and thought it was because I wasn't a member.  The post, or Hub as I think they are called, (forgive my ignorance,  I have only been here a while)  was so helpful that I did not want to leave without saying my thanks, so I joined.  After leaving the message saying Thank you I then followed another link and have since spent the past few hours just reading, what a fascinating place this is!  Each page I read made me smile and linked to something else that I thought "oh I will just read that and then go and write my own" but I don't think that will happen tonight.

    Thanks again for making me SMILE.

      Hi Abbs!!! Welcome to Hub Pages.  It's a great place to be and you'll meet great people.  I'm glad I made you smile as that is my job here.  I write mostly motivational pieces and like to make people smile and think about how to better themselves and their community.  Have fun writing here at HP.

    Maybe Mark Ewbie could do the same thing with his Stick Man?
