Okay, so do you think the researcher or the respondent rated the level of beauty? If I say I am miserable, but rate myself as good-looking, do you think the researcher marked off on his form "Respondent is unaware that she is not that good-looking. She is the right amount of happy for her looks." Honestly, think about it. How could you objectively rate who is pretty and who is not? What about ugly people who are happy and think they are good-looking? I could go on all day here about the flawed science. This study really only serves to remind us that beautiful people always get all the benefits and are a pain in our collective asses. Please note, that if you are reading this and are beautiful, I don't mean you.

In a related topic, we have some Not News. For those of you just joining us, Not News is "news" that is really just filler and doesn't tell you anything that is not obvious or already known. It is usually delivered very seriously and solemnly, in an attempt to make you think it's important. I know there is nothing as compelling today as hearing that rich and beautiful people are more special than the rest of us, but it should annoy you to know that people are making money writing about this stuff:
Charlie Sheen does not seem to be able to get a hotel room in New York. Rumor has it he's not such a good guest.
It was revealed that Elizabeth Taylor had a genetic mutation that caused the double row of eyelashes she had (who knew). Most people are not beauty-enhanced by this, as was Elizabeth. This mutation can also cause lots of other disorders (that were listed) that are very serious, none of which Elizabeth had. Good to know.

There is currently nothing else at this time that needs to be discussed (except maybe the fact that I have used yet another picture of pizza), but I will get back to you as soon as something comes to mind or someone needs to be whistled at.
