As I was scrolling through the posts on my Facebook account, I came across this weird picture. It was actually a GIF and the two “feet” along the green zigzag line were “walking” along.

what happiness looks like

Curiosity prompted me to read the information that was shared with the picture.

“‘What you see is a myosin protein dragging an endorphin along a filament to the inner part of the brain’s parietal cortex which creates happiness. Happiness. You’re looking at happiness.’

Coolest. Thing. Ever.
Nerd happiness.”

So, now you can take your magnifying glass and search the world for happiness. Or, you can simply ask people if their myosin proteins are dragging endorphins in their brain today.

NOTE: The actual piece I found on my Facebook was a GIF, but I couldn’t find any way to link back to the piece. And when I used the tumblr URL, I connected to a list of numbers and letters.
