Hello, anon, and thank you for the question.
This topic has been studied by researchers for years. There are three prevailing theories that I will relay to you now.
1. It keeps him on the ground.
You may notice in the gif above that Chris’ leg starts to rise as he laughs, possibly a precursor to his entire body undergoing a sort of lift off due to his joy. Chris then employs his upper body strength to force himself to obey the laws of gravity.
2. To check on his physique.
As you may be aware, anon, it takes a lot of hard work to maintain a superhero body. Chris is concerned that in the time he has spent sitting down, sans working out or eating, he has lost muscle mass. Understandably, he feels the need to make sure that he is still a specimen.
3. Object permanence.
Object permanence is a term applied to the understanding that an object still exists even when you cannot see it. Chris closes his eyes when he laughs, making him unable to see that he has not disappeared. By grabbing his left boob, Chris knows that he has not somehow ceased to exist.
I hope this helps.
Sympathy for my fellow pueblanos who will have to endure explaining to people that cinco de mayo isn’t Mexico’s independence day and that not everyone in Mexico even celebrates it
Why can’t there be a male hooter’s equivalent where male servers are shirtless and highly sexualized for their bodies and looks
Male Strip clubs. You’re thinking of male strip clubs.
No. Not a male strip club. A strip club is a strip…

The Black Olmecs were the first to build “Pyramids” in Mexico , although these were built of mud and one was more cone-shaped then actually pyramidal. The Olmecs apart from carving 22 colossal stone heads dating to about 1100 B.C, also created thousands of work of art throughout Mesoamerica . Olmec terracotta art show people involved in a variety of activities from wrestling to pottery making.

hiii like a month or two ago you asked about learning spanish so i had a word page saved because of another person who wanted to learn more about the culture which i think is really important so you can learn the language, i just copied and pasted this here, they were really interested in la malinche and feminism which is why i mention it a lot but i hope this helps! i submitted this because it really long, these are events/people/work (mostly women) relevant in mexican culture.
First: Josefa Ortiz, she basically started the Revolution but unfortunately there isn’t a country with a macho culture as strong as ours and they tend to give all the credit to men.
Then there’s Frida Kahlo, a wonderful painter that is not only recognized by her talent but she survived a near-death experience. I’ve had the pleasure of visiting her house and it’s wonderful because you can feel everything she expressed in her paintings and belongings. Sadly she was dependant on her husband Diego Rivera which was also a wonderful painter BUT she is also famous because their marriage was really troubled with lots of affairs he was a jealous possessive men in her affairs with men but tolerated the ones with women. I really recommend the movie “Frida" with Salma Hayek which was nominated for the Oscars. I guess you have seen it and also "Selena”
Laura Esquivel is a modern writer really famous for her novel called “Como agua para chocolate” which is also a very famous movie but seven years ago she released a book called “Malinche” which is the reason I’m including her because most of the time she is seen as a traitor (they call “malinchistas” to the people who appreciate more foreign things than Mexican culture) and in this book Laura addressed her as a strong woman.
You should read The Labyrinth of Solitude by Octavio Paz, it has nine essays (the most recent version has ten, which includes a new one that talks about the student massacre in 1968, really famous) and he addresses La Malinche in one essay called “The Sons Of La Malinche” in case you want to look at that one first, that book is recognized because is the “ultimate mexican book” basically an essay about being mexican and its morals, it won the nobel prize.
Then there’s Sor Juana Ines De La Cruz. Basically women couldn’t study and weren’t allowed to write (as in they never teached them) and by the age of 13 she already knew about six languages, her poems are a fuck you to men and she was a feminist. Unfortunately most of her works were burned but you should read “Hombres Necios” (Foolish Men) I found three different versions in English (x, x, x)
I have to include Elena Poniatowska even though I really don’t like her, her most famous work is “La Noche de Tlatelolco” which is about the student massacre, if I’m not wrong it’s called “Massacre In Mexico” in English. I don’t like her because my uncle was really invested in this “cultural, educational” aspect of life and he knew lots of secrets about her, basically she is a hypocrite because she is not even Mexican and her works are not even original, but of course no one knows that. And she is recognized as a helpful woman but in reality she takes advantage of other people. But that doesn’t mean you should read her works and also “Querido Diego, Te Abraza Quiela” which are fictional letters from a woman called Quiela to Diego Rivera after he comes to Mexico, he never answers because he already has Frida.
MUSIC!!. I personally know Lila Downs thanks to my uncle. Wonderful and talented woman, she was part of Frida’s soundtrack, which won Best Score Film, she also has a lots of song related to La Llorona so I can’t list them. I’m also including the rock band Caifanes and Cafe Tacvba, a recent one is Zoe, I think they are all in Spotify, the tags #español or #rock-en-español in 8tracks are really good!
There is a REALLY interesting book called “Por Debajo Del Agua” (Under The Water) by Fernando Zamora but I can’t find it in English. He mocks the typical macho stereotype by narrating a secret love story between two men in the 1920’s Mexico Revolution with internalized homophobia. This was probably real because God forbid two men are in love most of Mexico’s adults are pretty closed-minded about sexual orientation.
These are like the modern things?? Because if we talk about ancient cultures and mythology we have more to talk about and it’s just so much. Feel free to ask me more. Also, this is the most accurate thing you can get from the conquest and La Malinche it’s called ”The True History of The Conquest of New Spain" by Bernal Diaz.
And my favorite of all time, she is also a dear friend. Her name is Malu Huacuja del Toro, she is a wonderful author and some of her works are in English, she currently lives in New York and just published a new book, she is an incredible woman with the most amazing mind.
I also submitted to them links with some female poetess which I didn’t save but I asked them if they had saved it and they are looking for it, as soon as I have it I will send it to you :)
Thanks. Emily drew it! :)
