You may have heard of the golden ratio of beauty at this point. Scientists love to talk about it (I assume because it’s considered a “sexy” study and therefore it gets them more press). After all, the closer we come to quantifying that elusive asset called beauty, the easier it may be to manipulate ourselves in order to achieve it. And yes, that is sick and twisted, but it’s not my fault humans are the way they are.
Anyhoo, researchers at University of California, San Diego claim they have big news to share: They say they’ve “discovered the ideal alignment of female facial features, a pair of measurements that explain why one woman is perceived as attractive and the other, well, isn’t,” which seems weird since many a scientist before has boasted the same thing.

“It has taken me three years to decide on the scent because I really like B.O. and I think it’s sexy. I wanted to figure out a way to make it palatable to everybody.

“Nothing can really describe what it’s like to have two new little girls. It’s been very different than when James arrived, since our family expanded in an untraditional way. We didn’t plan on having two, but were doubly blessed, and it’s been just wonderful. [Tabitha and Marion] just turned four months old today! One would prefer to be held 24 hours a day, and the other is already suffering from type A issues. It’s been amazing but complicated because of my current work schedule, which I have enormous regrets about. [...] It is the eternal conflict of every working woman, and I am not complaining, because I’ve done this to myself. And I have a wonderful, wonderful nanny who allows me to be a working person. The great challenge for me is to be all things to all people; I want to be a great mother, and I want to feel good when I’m at work. But it is hard.”
