  • Do I have a chance with him?

    So there’s this guy I like. I’m a junior, he’s a sophomore. I don’t know what to do. On the one hand: - I don’t know him super well. There are several girls whom he is better friends with than he is with me. - I’m kind of friends with his friends, but I don’t know them super well either. - I’m really shy and can be awkward - He’s single, but most... show more
    So there’s this guy I like. I’m a junior, he’s a sophomore. I don’t know what to do. On the one hand: - I don’t know him super well. There are several girls whom he is better friends with than he is with me. - I’m kind of friends with his friends, but I don’t know them super well either. - I’m really shy and can be awkward - He’s single, but most of his female friends are prettier than me. - I’m pretty sure he doesn’t have feelings for me. - He’s already going to prom with another girl as friends - I feel like if I get rejected, it’s going to make things awkward. As I see him and his friends a lot, this could be pretty bad. I’d much rather the slight friendship that I have now than avoidance and hostility. On the other hand: - I REALLY like him, more than I ever have of anyone else. I have several drawings of him. I check his Instagram profile more than anyone else’s and I screenshot every picture of him. I think about him all the time and write in my journal about him daily. - Most of my friends have boyfriends, and I’m a bit jealous. I’ve never had one, and at 17 I feel as though I want one. - Even if we don’t actually date, just having him as a closer friend would be nice. - After I graduate, I may never see him again. If we date, then I obviously will. - If he says yes, then I will be beyond happy. Map basically, if he says yes, I’ll be happier than I’ve ever felt. If he says no and things get awkward, it’ll be the biggest disappointment of my life. What do I do?

  • Do you think there's any correlation, positive or negative, between intelligence and physical appearance?

    Though both are subjective, we can generally agree that scientists are smarter than janitors and that models are prettier than obese people. On the one hand, there's a stereotype that smart people don't care about fashion or appearances. Some noted geniuses, such as Fermi or Pauling, were kind a weird looking. On the other hand, lower... show more
    Though both are subjective, we can generally agree that scientists are smarter than janitors and that models are prettier than obese people. On the one hand, there's a stereotype that smart people don't care about fashion or appearances. Some noted geniuses, such as Fermi or Pauling, were kind a weird looking. On the other hand, lower intelligence is associated with poor decision making, poor impulse control, and probably poor health. I have no doubt that smarter people live longer, generally, than less smart ones. Even if Fermi and Pauling weren't Zac Efron, they certainly would have looked worse had they been morbidly obese, unhygienic, addicted to crack, and covered in tattoos. Intelligent people almost certainly live easier lives than less intelligent people, which probably shows in their appearance. Just anecdotally, the kids at my high school who were awarded for high GPAs (93+) were vastly better-looking than the kids who took special education classes (at least half of whom were overweight).

  • Are the poor generally less physically attractive than the wealthier?

    When I look at mugshots of criminals, or pictures of the homeless or people in trailer parks, most of them are honestly quite hideous.

    When I look at mugshots of criminals, or pictures of the homeless or people in trailer parks, most of them are honestly quite hideous. I went to high school in an area in which the average family made over $100K. It was a public school, but there hadn't been a teen pregnancy, dropout, or fight in many decades. Literally everyone went to college. And people were very good-looking. I'd say a good quarter of them could easily model. I've seen prostitutes. People pay them for sex, but most pale in comparison to the kids at my old school. In fact, many prostitutes are downright ugly. It's not like the kids at my old school were getting plastic surgery. They were just tall and thin with clear skin, clean hair and straight teeth. Low income people have higher rates of obesity, hard drug use, poor hygiene, crooked/yellow teeth, etc.

  • Would a eugenics program pretty much just affect the poor?

    Most people whom I’ve met who supported eugenics have wanted to sterilize criminals, the religious, the unintelligent, the uneducated, or the ugly/obese. To me, it seems obvious that all of those conditions are far more prevalent among the poor for a variety of genetic and environmental reasons (neither of which a person can control). Who... show more

Who looks/acts better - Harvard grads or trailer park residents? Western Professionals or third world tribesmen/peasants? I grew up in a relatively rich area, and there were some kids there who were the difiniton of perfection - top of the class, polite, always optimistic, popular, excelled at multiple extra-curriculars, pretty enough to would phr many celebrities to shame). You’re not going to turn out that way if you were born to a rapist and a homeless, crack-addicted prostitute who tried to throw you in a dumpster.

Atheism is near nonexistent in many African nations. - More religious states are poorer than more secular ones (Mississippi vs. Massachusetts). Is it surprising that there is a higher rate of atheism in Harvard compared to Harlem? More atheist scientists than inmates? Atheism was near nonexistent until two/three centuries ago, and even then it didn t become popular until the past few decades. I wouldn't be surprised if there was never an illiterate atheist, a starving atheist, or an enslaved atheist. Is religion just a coping mechanism?
