    Economists and social psychologists and statisticians, oh my. All those tiger moms out there trying to teach calculus to their 8th graders have got it all wrong. Their money would better be spent on plastic surgery. Guess what? People are shallow.

    I think this is only the case for an off the shelf MBA tool that confuses layoffs with profits.

    If you actually have a brain and create something great, how you look doesn't mean anything

    Just for fun I plugged in a close-up of Bill Gates that I found. 8.13 out of 10.0. Not quite Angelina Jolie or Brad Pitt, but, pretty high. Unfortunately, people are shallow, and, tend to like and trust people more when they have better facial symmetry.
