Experiment: What does this emoticon mean?

First, my husband showed it to me the day before yesterday from his Finnish Science magazine. Today, I read it via the other blog, and found the article. With this coincidence, I am getting interested to know what the others think about this experiment.

So if you are interested in this experiment just like me, may be you can participate by listing down from the emoticons below, with the scale 1-9, whereby 1 is SAD, 9 is HAPPY and 5 being NEUTRAL, plus with your country, gender.

Country:
Gender:
Emoticon A: (score between 1-9)
Emoticon B: (score between 1-9)
Emoticon C: (score between 1-9)
Emoticon D: (score between 1-9)
Emoticon E: (score between 1-9)
Emoticon F: (score between 1-9)

      Your friend has msn plus…with msn plus you can have your text in colours. To those who don’t have msn plus…eg. you…the colour codes would show instead of the actual colour.
