    how did you come to that? ive only heard americans say that. anyway, i think they just do it cause it looks cooler

    americans? well if so it must have been along time ago cuz iv heard of a hoser but not a poser......umm but than again that was like when i was a little kid last time i heard that too....wow english language sure does change fast in american doesnt it?
    You mean you don't know what a poser is? Weird, people use it all the time over here. A poser is basically a person who tries to act all punk when theyre really a prep. Avril Lavigne has often been called a poser. Therefore, anyone who likes her is also called a poser by the punk population. (I don't have anything agaisnt her, but just don't listen to her music much).

    Anyway... on subject... Its just because that's what your eyes do when you smile, but not to such an extreme. Try it. Squint, and then smile, it looks just like anime!

    when people smile, your cheek muscles are lifted up which results to your eyes do some sort of moon shape. it happens to me anyway, but they're not completely closed, you really don't know it unless you see photos of yourself doing it.

    and posers over here means acting something / someone that your not.

    Its really more of an exagerated emotion anyways. Such as some anime characters have rivers going down their faces when they cry. Real people don't do that, its just a more obvious way of expressing that emotion.
    Hope for the best, expect the worst.

    I agree with Bass in all the eaggerating. It's just to make them appear more obvious in their overt happiness you know? Same deal with the crying river and the number sign thingies on their heads when they get mad. ^^;

    But sometimes they close their eyes when they talk casually which is weird. What's up with that? oO

    Yeah, I think if someone had their eyes completely open and was smiling really wide, It'd look F***** up.

    That's what I thought it meant around here too. For example, people who drive 4x4 SUVs and trucks but only drive them on paved city roads are posers because they want the image of an adventurious outdoors off-roader but they really are city dwellers. The word poser is similar to a wannabe if you are familiar with that word. Basically someone who wants to be someone/something but they are not.

    Poser is actually a title here on the forums. I believe it's something like 0-50 posts is a Newbie, and then 50-100 posts is a Poser, and 100-200 is Veteran, etc. I'm sure one of the moderators can give us a more accurate number. I guess I have to post more to get out of my status. :wink: I watch a lot of anime but I just don't post here enough.

    I agree also. Most of anime has exaggerated features and expressions such as large eyes, the big tear drop, super running water from their eyes when they are crying, ect. I also agree with others in that most people's eyes naturally get smaller when they smile(some more than others) so I believe they are definitely just exaggerating what is already there.
