Beauty may not always be a good idea...

We are often told by scientists that beautiful people are more likely to get decent jobs or avoid conviction by juries or more likely to be healthy or emotionally stable etc.,but it seems, from the above, that there are disadvantages. It has been my experience that people born with innate advantages such as beauty or wealth etc. often foolishly base their entire personal value on those characteristics they own rather than developing/improving other attributes. Many nouveau riche types I have met tend to be odious personalities convinced of their superiority, despite wealth being based on arbitrary values(ie pieces of metal or paper etc or bits in a computer).
