    is it due to years of inbreeding? or bad diet?


    they're consistently being rated the ugliest people in the world
    And you are from? I don't suppose it's Britain, is it?

    All these polls are ridiculous. If we're not being told the world thinks we're ugly, we're being told we have a terrible quality of life or awful health. All it does is feed into the Daily Mail delusion that everywhere is idyllic and wonderful while britain is miserable, grey and horrible.

    And in any case, to take these polls in any way seriously is being too self conscious.

    So, you determine whether people are sluts based on the way they look?

    Are you implying that because they're attractive they must be sluts... Most of the sluts I know are ugly or average looking.

    And, yes, attractive people do float my boat; however, that doesn't mean I think of them superior to ugly people in any way; I'm not superficial enough to think so...

    I think your post was quite judgmental and superficial. But, I'm not going to judge you as a person on one post...
    i said THEY LOOK LIKE SLUTS- not that they ARE...
    just what they were wearing no need to throw a hissy fit :rolleyes:
    who you calling superficial???

    Please tell me this isn't how you actually think that genetics works. Please.

    How do you think that variation arose between and within individual populations that migrated to the UK? (or anywhere else) Mutation. It didn't suddenly stop happening once those populations migrated to the UK. Lots of migration + long period of time since migration + mutation = substantial variation!

    Tell you what, I'll buy you a biology textbook for Christmas next year! You obviously need it.
    :facepalm:
    So a Mexican and a Brit have a child. The child then goes on to marry and mate with a Brit. Repeat 20 times. Are you really trying to tell me that that kid will still be as varied genetically as the original child between the Brit and Mexican?
    I think you're the one in desperate need a biology textbook
    What helps with genetic variation is environmental variation. If you just have a small island with no variation in pretty much anything shacking up for 1000 years, this is going to lead to a very small genetic gene pool compared to say somewhere like America which is made up of immigrants from every corner of the globe.
    There hasn't been lots of migration over a long period :facepalm:
    How about you answer the question I said? Instead of being juvenile and trying to argue against a fact (smooth move) explain why it is that Brits are generally known as being ugly? Or too busy eating your Crayola? :awesome:

    You can't disagree...It's fact that foreigners regard Brits as ugly. So try to explain why, not warp the truth. :rolleyes:

    What are you talking about silly boy, there are plenty of good looking British women.

    Yeah because the blacks and Pakistani's totally intermix with their white brethren and are all part of a wonderful multicultural rainbow! :rofl:
    Or how about these immigrants don't intermingle and are therefore useless in terms of genetic variety?
    Where I am from has nothing to do with the foreign perspective does it? :confused: Or trying for some ad-hominem argument?

    I still want to know where the multicultural rainbow is that's located elsewhere in Europe.

    You still haven't given your opinion about the US either.

    Yes you did.

    Stereotypes wouldn't exist if there wasn't anything to base them on, and frankly they are ****ing right. Most British guys are fat, squat ugly shaven headed selfish idiots with no fashion sense with most women being brain dead - if they are in shape they are a whore, if they are not in shape they are usually exceptionally boring, and both have no fashion sense & are extremely insecure.
    Not quite. I didn't disagree with the fact that many people regard Brits as ugly, believe me, I know, I've seen enough threads and articles about it. I believe this is what I was trying to get at:

    Your nationality does not and never will affect what you look like, or your personality
    'There are a lot of unattractive people in Britain' is a lot different to 'The british are a bunch of ugly folks anyway'.
