good points.

What is beautiful? To me, it would not be the Hollywood standard, that's for sure...with its brittle hard-looking women and vacuous smug-looking men. You have to be beautiful on the inside to be truly beautiful on the outside. We all know the technically beautiful person who is repugnant because of their personality. There's no objective standard. This finding may indicate SOMETHING, but I'm not sure it's about something so slippery as 'beauty.'
