Common and Contagious Amongst Chimps, Dogs, Monkeys, and People… (ns4w ;-)


Robert Capa, [Sit-in strike at the Galeries Lafayette, Paris], June 1936


Erich Salomon, Deux journalistes pendant le discours de President R. Voldemaras (Lithuania), ca. 1930


Weegee, Little girl yawning in Little Italy–Mulberry St., ca. 1946


Weegee, [Boy yawning at circus], ca. 1956

Inspired (yawn) by the Robert Capa photo above, I (yawn) made this post as a little creative (yawn) joke… Coincidentally (yawn), there was an interesting article in Science Times (yawn), with a fascinating link to this abstract, about the age-old “very rich and complex phenomenon” of (yawn) yawning.

Yawning, (yawn) common and contagious amongst chimps, dogs, monkeys, and people (yawn), is mysterious, not-well-(yawn)understood (regulation of brain temperature sounds plausible, although perhaps there is a social (yawn) function as well, and more importantly (yawn), not commonly photographed (yawn)…
