Well don't get me wrong, I smile and say thank you and please and "have a good day" but I am just not what one would think of as bubbly or outgoing, not someone you'd expect to be getting preferential treatment due to being particularly charismatic or whatever.

I think that she was (is) a person who wasn't "naturally thin" but really needed to eat virtually nothing and exercise a lot to stay a size zero or size two. It wasn't until we see her now, at a size six, eating and exercising a normal amount that we realize that what she did before wasn't normal.

Ask a few of your adult female friends who are a size zero how much they actually get to eat in a typical day. You may be surprised at how little it really is.
Not to throw sizes around, but both myself and my sister are a size 0 and we eat quite a bit (I should add we're petite, not tall). We just eat healthy stuff (I don't deprive myself - I just don't like junk food). I never allow myself to get full, yet I never walk around feeling hungry.

Beautiful people have enormous advantages these days, more so than ever before. It's got to the stage where ugly people now need to be a "protected minority". Yes, I am deadly serious. We need to start legislating against the perfect race now before it's too late.

Perfect race? Are there not beautiful people of all races?

If we charged them more taxes I'm afraid they would charge us to gaze upon their great beauty.

You get it.

Maybe they should pay more tax. It's statistically proven that ugly people generally earn circa $230,000 less in a lifetime than attractive people:

If you're hot, your beauty should be taxed, so that you may not be the sole beneficiary of something you were simply "born with".

I call that fair

Maybe ugly people just have inferior genetics overall? Test have been done that show a significant increase in intelligence coinciding with attractiveness. Apparently more often that not, when someone pulls the short straw so-to-say, they really do pull it in all genetic aspects.

Ah, but is the increased intelligence due to being given opportunities that uglier people weren't given? I've noticed that more attractive children are given far more praise and the opportunity to experience more things which may increase their intelligence over time.

If two people are interviewed for a program, but only the attractive one gets chosen based on their attractiveness, where does that leave the ugly person?
