Are Perfectly Symmetrical Faces More Attractive?

That may be the case for some people who are blessed with the perfect features, like:

Lee Young Ae

Liu Yifei

Song Hye Kyo

Kim Tae Hee

Slightly asymmetrical face can be pretty too:

There are times when a symmetrical face is not equivalent to beauty. Here's an example using my own photo. This is my (original) face:

And these are my symmetrical faces:

Dr. Seung-chul Rhee of South Korea noted that slightly asymmetrical faces are more attractive than perfectly symmetrical ones. To prove that, he created the symmetrical top faces (top row below) from the attractive but asymmetical face below them.
Symmetrical faces (top left and top right) are less attractive than the asymmetrical lower face.
“Some Caucasians like Asian faces but others prefer the Caucasian composite face that I made,” he said. Asians also varied preferences when considering what’s attractive, Rhee said.

“It is very absurd … trying to decide which composite face is more attractive,” he said. “It depends on the rater’s own preference.”

So what do you think?

What To Say When People Are Showing Off

"My, aren't you sesquipedalianistic?"

I'm positive that will shut them up for sure. Unless, unfortunately, they know what sesquipedalianistic means and proceeds to throw another long-syllable word back at you.

What does the word sesquipedalian means?
1: having many syllables : long <sesquipedalian terms>
2: given to or characterized by the use of long words sesquipedalian television commentator>

Want to Marry A Rich Guy?

A reply from Mukesh Ambani, owner of Reliance Group, India to a pretty girl seeking a rich husband.

A young and pretty lady posted this on a popular forum:

Title: What should I do to marry a rich guy?

I'm going to be honest of what I'm going to say here.

I'm 25 this year. I'm very pretty, have style and good taste. I wish to marry a guy with 100 crore annual salary or above.

You might say that I'm greedy, but an annual salary 2 crore is considered only as middle class now days..

My requirement is not high. Is there anyone in this forum who has an income of 100 crore annual salary? Are you all married?

I wanted to ask: what should I do to marry rich persons like you?

Among those I've dated, the richest is 50 crore annual income, and it seems that this is my upper limit.

If someone is going to move into high cost residential area on the west of New York City Garden(?), 50 crore annual income is not enough.

I'm here humbly to ask a few questions:
1) Where do most rich bachelors hang out? (Please list down the names and addresses of bars, restaurant, gym)
2) Which age group should I target?
3) Why most wives of the riches are only average-looking? I've met a few girls who don't have looks and are not interesting, but they are able to marry rich guys.

4) How do you decide who can be your wife, and who can only be your girlfriend? (my target now is to get married)

Ms. Pooja Chohan.

A philosophical reply from Mukesh Ambani

Dear Ms. Pooja,
I have read your post with great interest. Guess there are lots of girls out there who have similar questions like yours. Please allow me to analyse your situation as a professional investor.

My annual income is more than 100 crore, which meets your requirement, so I hope everyone believes that I'm not wasting time here.

From the standpoint of a business person, it is a bad decision to marry you. The answer is very simple, so let me explain.

Put the details aside, what you're trying to do is an exchange of "beauty" and "money" : Person A provides beauty, and Person B pays for it, fair and square.

However, there's a deadly problem here, your beauty will fade, but my money will not be gone without any good reason. The fact is, my income might increase from year to year, but you can't be prettier year after year.

Hence from the viewpoint of economics, I am an appreciation asset, and you are a depreciation asset. It's not just normal depreciation, but exponential depreciation. If that is your only asset, your value will be much worse 10 years later.

By the terms we use in Wall Street, every trading has a position, dating with you is also a "trading position". If the trade value dropped we will sell it and it is not a good idea to keep it for long term - same goes with the marriage that you wanted. It might be cruel to say this, but in order to make a wiser decision any assets with great depreciation value will be sold or "leased".

Anyone with over 100 crore annual income is not a fool; we would only date you, but will not marry you. I would advice that you forget looking for any clues to marry a rich guy. And by the way, you could make yourself to become a rich person with 100 crore annual income.This has better chance than finding a rich fool.

Hope this reply helps.


Mukesh Ambani.
