Body language translated

Bill Cara: Over 40 million Stelco shares traded, Tues., Jan. 24, 2006, 2:40 PM: "It reeked so bad that in the courtroom, when the shareholders’ lawyer began to speak, the judge’s demeanour changed abruptly. His body posture sagged. He put his head in his hand, and then his cheek, and then his chin. Then he rubbed his chin, and then his ear, back to his forehead. He reached for his water glass several times. He rolled his eyes.

I can read body language as well as others, so during the lunch break I asked several Stelco union workers if they saw a change in body language at the moment the shareholders’ lawyer began to speak. To a person they said to me: “Of course we did.”"

Rolling his eyes! You don't need a body language specialist to tell you that he is laughing inside, and the remarks of the lawyer are really just an annoyance.
