You are so beautiful and I hate you at the same time. Image courtesy of iStockphoto/Thinkstock.

Have you ever heard of the “science of beauty”?  It is basically a bunch of scientists that sat around wondering if there was a mathematical correlation to beauty and if there were some standard postulates you can associate to the concept of beauty.

In my opinion, they were probably just trying to figure out why they couldn’t score a date, but I digress.

The main reason I got turned on to the concept was due to a Discovery Networks show titled “The Science of Sex Appeal”.

And yes, after you see the video, you totally agree with what they say – people will try to go for other people that are hotter than them, but eventually will stay within the same hotness range.

So are you stuck with what you’ve got and end up living a life of mediocrity?

Not necessarily.   If you paid attention to the video, the science of beauty isn’t all encompassing.  You can actually bend the rules.

How?  Success and lots of money, player.
