if I reviewed media out of 5, and gave a tv show 5/5 that would be perfect, no flaws. If we were going of a rating of 9, the highest achievable value means that there is nothing wrong with said show/programme/look rating so 9/9 would be the new perfection, you can't just adjust the meaning and say 9 is now the highest rating but perfection isn't possible
But in your analogy, perfection is possible, or at the very least your perspective of perfection. But with regards to Eloades he claimed that his perspective of perfect beauty i.e 10/10 isn't possible. If that level of attractiveness is unattainable then why judge it out of something that isn't possible to attain. It would be like testing someones level of intelligence through 10 questions, each one harder than the last and to achieve 10 out of 10, on the last question you are asked to make 1+1=3. But it's not possible to make 1+1=3, so why even judge intelligence against something a level of intelligence that isn't possible to achieve.

overthinking it/10 but nah I see where your coming from, but what if one day said perfection could be achieved, it is also a bias system of rating, so a 10 to someone, might be a 5 to another. I suppose the 10 is there either as a joke or it does what it says on the tin, 10/10=perfection, 9/9=perfection 5/5=perfection which can be different in other peoples ideas

Hi so uhm this is me sorry for the webcam quality! I'm on the spare laptop, I'll try finding a better picture soon. Please be completely honest and tell me how can I look better? I am thinking of getting a new hairstyle can anyone suggest a style that might suit me, or maybe a new hair colour. I'm not really sure.

I didn't expect to be given so many thumbs down, maybe I should try closing the thread. How do I close it?
Not trying to get all deep here, but you know what I think you should do? Don't hate me for this, but honestly try liking yourself for who you are. It sounds cheesy but self-confidence is the best thing about someone, along with being a nice person. With self-confidence, you can pretty much look good however!

If you post in here, people will no doubt give you abuse. They'll think you're seeking attention, or there'll be people that give their opinion on how you should look, or people that tell you you're pretty. They could be being honest, or they might be insecure liars. I personally think you're really pretty! But you won't gain self-satisfaction on here as people on here will hardly play a significant role in your life.

Like I said it sounds cheesy, but if you yourself believe you're beautiful then other people will, and if they don't then who even cares?!

Have you seen Mean Girls (if not get this sorted before you even think about fixing your hair!)? Well think about Cady (Lindsay Lohan). At the start of the film, she's pretty because she's herself. When she's friends with Regina and The Plastics, she looks a hot mess cos she's orange and it doesn't suit her skin tone and she just looks a we bit of a riot. But then when she decides to be herself again, the real Cady, she's so pretty. Logic

The eyebrows are a bit square, but you're literally gorgeous.

pure and utter cheese tbh...
12. You wanted a make over? There you go

You want my honest opinion?

loooooooooool

I must say though, that's an excellent piece of work
14. Putting up a picture on this site is not the best idea! :P You're pretty and I think your hair would look nice dead straight with bangs and a box fringe. And if you want to close it, and still haven't figured out how, ask me and I will let you know (I have closed a thread before but can't remember how I did it. If you want help I can work it out in 2 minutes but just let me know)
