(Guardian)–Kate Moss, George Clooney, Natalie Portman or Cristiano Ronaldo may be many people’s ideas of dream dates, but pioneering research that combines economics with biology suggests they may not be perfect life partners. According to a study to be discussed this month at a gathering of Nobel prizewinners, people blessed with more symmetrical facial features, which are considered more attractive, are less likely to co-operate and more likely to selfishly focus on their own interests. Santiago Sanchez-Pages, who works at the universities of Barcelona and Edinburgh, and Enrique Turiegano, of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, base their claims on the “prisoner’s dilemma” model of behaviour, played out under laboratory conditions. Two players were each given the option of being a “dove” and co-operating for the greater good; or a “hawk”, taking the selfish option, with a chance of gaining more if the other player chose “dove” and co-operated. The subjects’ faces were then analysed. The study found that people with more symmetrical faces were less likely to co-operate and less likely to expect others to co-operate. The findings will be presented at the annual Nobel Laureate Meetings in Lindau, Germany, from 23 to 27 August.
Man, ugly people are the most jealous assholes around. They are always just trying to make fun of, degrade, and stereotype hot people. It’s really unfair. Hot people are constantly being discriminated against by the fuglies. We always just brushed it off as “that ugly person is mean and rude, but it’s really because they are jealous of our hotness”. They can call me stupid and laugh at me all they want, but at the end of the day my face is symmetrical and their’s isn’t. It must suck to suck. Ugly people are trying to step up their game up though. They got all smartest ugly people together in a room and did a study to prove that people with the hotness are selfish, mean, conceited assholes. Ugly Nobel Prize winners, who have been jealous their entire lives, have a 4 day presentation proving that we are bad humans. I was mildly concerned that ugly people might use their science and facts against us until I realized that their “study” was so typical ugly people that it doesn’t even count. Hmm, should I choose to sit back and let other people make decisions for me or should I take charge and make sure I get what I want? Only ugly losers would choose option A. The most pathetic part of this study was when they “analyzed” the faces to see which ones were hot. Sorry uglies…you can’t plug hotness into a computer. Hotness is something you feel in your balls. If you need a study or a computer to figure out if a girl is hot…you yourself aren’t hot.
If getting your own way, partying, and having people give you stuff is hot, then I don’t want to be ugly.
