The cute factor

"OMG....he's sooooooooooo cuteeeeeeee!!!!"

"eeeeeeeeee....cho cuuutttteeeeeeeeee!!!"

*pinchy pinchy*

"how i wish i could give him a big squeezeeeeeeeeee"

Sounds familiar?

Ever been in a situation where u find urself head over heals over something and finding urself uttering those words??

Now now, so what's this craze bout this lil something's that oh so cuteeeee??

*tada...look at me!!

*yawn* hhmm i'm sleepy

Now...ever wondered why you go goo-goo-gaa-gaa when seeing such cute adorable creatures and jus can't help but find ur voice reaching sky rocket high??

there's a study on the evolution of visual signaling and it has been identified that a wide assortment of features and behaviours makes something look cute: bright forward-facing eyes set low on a big round face, a pair of big round ears, floppy limbs and a side-to-side, teeter-totter gait, among many others.

The human cuteness detector is set at such a low bar, researchers said, that it sweeps in and deems cute practically anything remotely resembling a human baby or a part thereof, and so ends up including the young of virtually every mammalian species, fuzzy-headed birds like Japanese cranes, woolly bear caterpillars, a bobbing balloon, a big round rock stacked on a smaller rock, a colon, a hyphen and a close parenthesis typed in succession. –Nytimes-

It’s something called CUTE CUES that indicate extreme youth, vulnerability, harmlessness and need, scientists say. Cuteness is distinct from beauty, emphasizing rounded over sculptured, soft over refined, clumsy over quick.
So now, wonder no more of why some are just soooooo CUTE!!!

Guess then...if u're one rounded, soft and clumsy ARE cute!!!
