You can choose from over 2,600 emojis to express yourself, even though you may want to limit your emoji use in work emails. Now, new research suggests the genius in this Japanese invention—emojis have a fascinating history—is the way they give us the ability to visually communicate emotions far more subtle than the widely accepted six universal ones: happiness, sadness, anger, surprise, fear and disgust.

For the new study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, UC Berkley researchers collected reactions from more than 800 men and women. The volunteers viewed 2,000 different video images designed to provoke a variety of emotions—the content included births and deaths, proposals and weddings, snakes and spiders, and much more. The researchers carefully tracked the volunteers’ reactions and used statistical models to map out the data from these emotional roller coasters.

Love Stories. It’ s the reason why men tend to win all pointless (sometimes made up) games—they’re SO competitive. (Besides Scrabble, these are classic board games that you should know.)

“We found that 27 distinct dimensions, not six, were necessary to account for the way hundreds of people reliably reported feeling in response to each video,” said Dacher Keltner, UC Berkeley psychology professor who is the senior author on the study and an expert on the science of emotions in ScienceDaily. “Emotional experiences are so much richer and more nuanced than previously thought,” said study lead author Alan Cowen, a doctoral student in neuroscience at UC Berkeley. “Their responses reflected a rich and nuanced array of emotional states, ranging from nostalgia to feeling ‘grossed out,'” he said.

Science confirms the once-mocked 'man flu' is a real thing .
According to a study published in the British Medical Journal, the once-mocked “man flu” is a real thing, raising questions as to whether men are “immunologically inferior.”&nbsp;“Despite the universally high incidence and prevalence of viral respiratory illnesses, no scientific review has examined whether the term ‘man flu’ is appropriately defined or just an ingrained pejorative term with no scientific basis. Tired of being accused of over-reacting, I searched the available evidence to determine whether men really experience worse symptoms and whether this could have any evolutionary basis,” wrote Dr. Sue in his study.
