Beautiful or Brainy? Which would you rather be?

If you had to choice, which would you prefer?
To be a breathtaking beauty, but dumb as a post?
Or, the world's most brilliant person, but a sight for
sore eyes?

It's been asked before on this board

They are both horrible options lol, but in this society, I would go for breathtaking beauty, but dumb as a post.

I think you can be dumb without realizing it and be happy
But you can't be fugly without realizing it, and I'm sure it will make you unhappy

Wait a minute... brainy pays the bills and if I'm insanely smart I could take alll the money I earned and get a plastic surgery, breast implants and so on and in the end I would end up beautiful, that would be killing two birds with one stone so yeah I'd rather be brainy if I had a choice

I'd rather stay like I am instead of any of the propositions lol

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

Incredibly beautiful can pay the bills too... Watch all the top model, they're more rich than any super brain their age (coz if you're really intelligent, it will probably still takes year to become rich..)

I'd want to be beatiful, and sponge off ugly rich people.

Women's tennis sucks.

But it's the people who do the PR work, who design their shows and who build the franchise that give these "increadibly beautiful" models their pay-cheque. And they're usually much richer as well.

I'll go with brainy. There's always the option of gyms and surgery if I wanna prop up the outside.

I'm already beautiful, and not that brainy. So, I choose Brainy

I'd still take beautiful though, especially in today's society.

Im vaguely brainy, in certain areas, but pretty damn ugly in an unusual sort of way...so Id happily trade in some brains for something more in the looks department...

Heck, the ability to glance in the mirror without thinking URRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH would be a nice start!

Manchester City 2011 FA Cup winners! 2012 Premier League Champions! 2014 League Cup winners and Premier League Champions! At last!!!!!

I'm quite happy with my current situation.


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.
