    well, I'm a dude, so I can't really be a super model unless I was built like schwartenegger and had a great face to match
    ...but I could be a "thupermodel" I guess? is that a thing? I'm not gay but I could pretend to be for the money
    I actually went to law school this year, weirdly enough, but I hated it so I'm not doing it next year
    your genes play a role, but if you could would you be?

    if I could get paid for standing around and looking good while having pictures taken of me, I'd much rather do that than be a lawyer - being a super model could trampoline me into the porn industry too, and getting paid that way is more ideal than either of the other two

    And your point is?

    A model is still selling their body as does a prostitute.
    Not really.

    Model. I'd rather not do a really stressful career

    'Law-Hopeful' here but I'd choose supermodel. Then convert to law after the twilight of my modelling career.

    Supermodel, definitely. I'd want to be like Kate Moss and spend my youth going to parties, then I'd marry Alex Turner when I was ready to settle down. I don't think being a lawyer is a particularly impressive career anyway. Being a supermodel would be more fun and you get to retire really young.

    If you could be a supermodel, you could be very famous and have many dates from rich people. However your glory days would be short 10-15 years.

    if you are a lawyer, you have a stable job and would last we'll into your 60s. But at the sametime, you won't be very well known by the public.
    Some supermodels have much longer careers Naiomi Cambell's is about 30 years and will last longer.

    Supermodel. You'd probably make more in your career. You'd just have to be careful to save it. Plus 10-15 years as a model is better than rotting away as a lawyer for years, and only retiring very late. Boring boring boring, to me.
    You as a male would not make as much, unless you were David Gandy, and there is no other male in his league in terms of money.

    Is that not because lawyer is a far more attainable career than model?

    Erm no. Why is me preferring to be a lawyer to a model seemingly bothering you?

    It's not bothering me. I think it's fine. It's probably for the best, considering how hard it is to be a model. It not only takes a pretty appearance, but a lot of luck.

    Have you had any offers to be a model? If so, you should have said.

    So because I'd rather be a lawyer than a supermodel hence the fact that I want to be a lawyer anyway It provokes you to respond with such sarcasm implying the fact that 'I can't be a supermodel anyway even if I wanted to'? Nice one mate, I forgot that you know me irl.
