Ridiculous civil limitation in the vague name of security never makes us smile, but one state has now literally outlawed smiling in the name of safety. Virginia has forbidden anyone from cracking a smile
in driver's license photos because it interferes with facial recognition technology.
A DMV spokesman told the paper: "We know people smile in their pictures because they had such a wonderful experience in our office, and that makes us happy."
So our DMV might not be stuck in 1984, but claiming people are happy at the DMV is some serious doublethink.
