    I don't really see this at all. At a certain age very few people are "very physically attractive" - they will only remain so if they actively try to be - which someone very immersed int heory is unlikely to spend so much time on.

    Likewise, it's very unlikely to be either very physically attractive *or* a genius, so what are the chances of 2 in 1?

    The next picture is Brian Cox, particle physicist at CERN's LHC, documentary presenter and rockstar (though in reality, playing keyboard just isn't that impressive)



    Women, you can judge his looks now, but let me tell you as a heterosexual male, if you don't think he's extremely sexy and interesting (rockstar, scientist and presenter!) you're just plain wrong.

    Ya the guy looks kind of like Sephiroth and plenty of people seem to find him pretty attractive.

    Nice thread necro! I disagree with you that that scientist isn't good looking, though. I think he's pretty foine.

    Also, if Einstein et. al. had been really really ridiculously good looking then I guess they would have just gotten laid more like Feynman did.

    It's true. All people who study physics only do so because they are ugly and the human race wants nothing to do with them. The dirty shameful secret has been uncovered. Because who would want to waste their time reading books and thinking about stuff? What a bunch of ugly nerds.
