Babies look stupid.
When they’re really young, they have no control over their bodies. Ever get a muscle spasm? It’s a neural misfiring; your brain is not hooked up to its equipment quite right. Well, babies’ whole bodies are like that–they’re one great big, loud, pooping muscle spasm. In early childhood development, the brain spends its time taking in as much information it can about the world around it, and rewires itself accordingly.
But before that finishes, babies look like idiots.
Their faces are uncontrolled, and they make facial expressions that do not represent any emotion they’re feeling: essentially their faces are in a random configuration. The little man in their head flicked random switches to see what happened. We’re used to tuning out how stupid they look because we’re hard-wired to think babies are cute, so I will show you just how stupid they look by showing the facial expressions they make, on adult men. You will never look at a baby the same way again.
So, without further ado: nervestaple and I imitating the facial expressions of babies.
I guess what I’m trying to say is, if a baby is seen in public like this, everyone will coo, “Oh, wook at de weetle pweety babby!” but whenever I walk around looking like that, they put me away.
Fucking double standard.
