Today in the News, 15% Happiness, 10% Surprise

Don't let the site's name fool you - The Emotional Breakdown is not a blog about someone's life falling apart, but a site that analyzes the emotional mood of photos on a given website (the default is the Guardian's "24 hours in pictures" site, but you can choose others). It gives a percentage breakdown of the moods found in those photos, from angry to happy to sad to surprised, giving us another way to take the temperature of each day's news

The above photo could not be analyzed, however - the site gave back a reading of 100% AAAAAAAAAAGH!!!!!


Now it's your turn. Share an awesome link or two in the comments. One that's at least 25% happy.
