World's Grumpiest Traveler Smiles Virtually :-)

It's not true that Vitaly Zelkovsky [ru], better known as “the world's grumpiest traveler,” never smiles. He does – virtually, at least. Reacting to the unexpected fame, Zelkovsky re-posted a Broken News Daily “report” about himself and exchanged a few words with two of his VKontakte friends. Both times, he used smilies:

[...] If you work hard enough on something, it will definitely bring results :-)

“[...] If you work hard enough on something, it will definitely bring results :-)”

"You should just do what you love to do and the reward will find the hero :-)"

“You should just do what you love to do and the reward will find the hero :-)”
