Would you rather be Drop Dead Hot but really dumb, or Mega Smart, but a face like a trash can? I have contemplated this choice, and I have to say, I would go the good looking route. It is dramatically easier for attractive people to move through this world, that’s a fact. Additionally, if you are dumb, well, ignorance is bliss. So you are hot AND happy. That’s the way to be.
Ugly and smart? You get the bonus of being acutely aware of every time you are screwed, AND you have to deal with people not giving you the beauty benefit of the doubt.
That my friends, sucks as a life.
