Don't really need to. So why did you change your "comedic genius" post to the word "mum", and not "yourself"?

Definately a link I'd say. Most of the intelligent students I've seen have been proper munters. Shame really.

I'm not ugly btw neither am I significantly intelligent.
Be carefull hwo you argu here. Its a matter of probability distribution. Lets say you considder 20% of the population to be beautiful, and 10% to be inteligent, then the amount of peopel which would be both is 10% out of 20%, which is 2%. Thsu 2% of the population is both beatiful and inteligent. However, the same holds for uggliness, so about 2% of the population is uggly and inteligent, and 2% is ugly and stupid. The eason these percentages are so small is because there are quite many people you would not classify as inteligent or beautiful, but more as Normal. Thsu the chance that somoene has normal inteligence and normal beaty may be something like (using the same figures for uggliness )

60% out of 80% = 48%

The error in your argument is that you assume that because few peopel are both smart and inteligent, most inteligent people must be uggly, whereas the distribution of beatiful people among inteligent people is most likely to be the same as for the entire population at a whole.

That's all good and well, and I appreciate the intelligence of your post (not saying you're ugly). But I think there are more people I consider ugly than beautiful, I have pretty high standards really. Please someone show me some beautiful intelligent women.

I was conversing with someone else. And I thought the above post might be related to ours.

What would looks have to do with being intelligent or not? Are talking of the cheerleader theory? As in 'I'm too gorgeous to have to use my brain'

I strongly belive that is a positive correlation between ugliness and intelligence, if I could be bothered to plot a graph using examples I would.

All the attractive women and by that I mean slappers that I come across are really stupid, and thats such a shame. I would like some photographic evidence of beautiful intelligent women, but they just don't exist.

I know some intelligent women who are very beautiful. And I'm female. So if you dare accuse me of any kind of bias then I will hit you very hard.

I know plenty of pretty attractive people of both sexes who are intelligent. I think people assume beautiful people are stupid (jealousy) it also depends on what you class as attractive. i think page 3 girls are generally stupid but then I dont think they are at all attractive either (ok this could be because I'm a woman but i dont think I'd fancy them if I was a bloke either)

Ugly people are more likely to stay in and get some work done because they feel the need to be successful in some part of their life. Although this isn't always the case
