Scientists say 'Resting B--ch Face' (RBF) is a real thing, and you can test yours online

Try not to look too happy about this news.

Scientists have determined that resting bitch face is a real thing.

In an October study, scientists from Noldus Information Technology used the company's FaceReader software to analyze the faces of celebrities known for RBF, including Kanye West, Kristen Stewart and Anna Kendrick.

The scientists found that the celebrities who looked less-than-pleased on a regular basis have underlying emotions that don't show up in those who look happy.

If people are constantly asking you what's wrong and you fear you have RBF, you can upload your photo here to find out.
