“In what constitutes the real happiness of human life, [the beggars] are in no respect inferior to those who would seem so much above them. In ease of body and peace of mind, all the different ranks of life are nearly upon a level, and the beggar, who suns himself by the side of the highway, possesses that security which kings are fighting for… The pleasures of wealth and greatness…strike the imagination as something grand and beautiful and noble, of which the attainment is well worth all the toil… IT IS THIS DECEPTION WHICH ROUSES AND KEEPS IN CONTINUAL MOTION THE INDUSTRY OF MANKIND. It is this which first prompted them to cultivate the ground, to build houses, to found cities and commonwealths, and to invent and improve all the sciences and arts, which ennoble and embellish human life; which have entirely changed the whole face of the globe, have turned the rude forests of nature into agreeable and fertile plains, and made the trackless and barren ocean a new fund of subsistence, and the great high road of communication to the different nations of the earth.”

“If you’re a male in most species you’re stuck. And there’s very little you can do about your mate value. If you’re a little gorilla with little muscles, you’re a genetic dead end – end of story. You might as well curl up and die. For humans there’s hope. With humans, with these behavioral fitness indicators – you know what modern society does is everything possible to distract us from developing those. Consumerist capitalism says invest all your time and energy according to the delusion that economic success is the only thing that attracts women and the only thing that other men respect. Invest everything there. And that’s very much in the interest of certain powers that be. That’s 99% of what guys spend their time and money on – trying indirect routes. ‘If I only go to Med school and then get a big house, a big car, and then maybe women will like me.’ You don’t need all that and your male ancestors didn’t need that. Everything they had was right within them – sense of humor, language, wit. And how much time do we spend developing those – most of us. Most of us are complete amateurs at that compared to the average Cro-Magnon 50,000 years ago. Why? Because they spent their waking hours doing that stuff. Not sitting silently at school, or in their cubicle at work. They spent their time interacting. And if they saw our styles of interacting they would laugh at us and go ‘I can’t believe our great great great grandsons are doing that stuff. You know. We got over that at age 12.’ And so we miss allocate time and energy.”

– Geoffrey Miller phd– evolutionary psychologist–

Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need. We’re the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War’s a spiritual war… our Great Depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won’t. And we’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off…. You’re not your job. You’re not how much money you have in the bank. You’re not the car you drive. You’re not the contents of your wallet. You’re not your fucking khakis….

You deffinitely get free AMES for height and fashion though:

Below is a video of women asked to give their opinion of a nerdy looking man before and after help from a fashion consultant:

I HIGHLY recommend the following – whether you’re trying to get a girl to sleep with or trying to get someone to buy something on your website

I find that thinking too hard about this stuff leads to problems.

I’m sorry but if this theory was correct – which it isn’t – I’d rather jack it

Was a hell of an interesting read though. I used to try and mechanistically examine this subject as-well, but not so much these days. If you over-complicate matters, you will trip-up and embarrass yourself.

One thing that’s neglected in this theory, however, is physical attraction. Recent studies have shown (cant be bothered to find sources, look for a guy named Singh) that male and female attractiveness is dominated by the quality of the immune system. How?

Two girls are born, A and B. A’s random genetic make-up has made her, by lucky chance alone, very resistent to infection. B’s genes, however, are not very good at protecting her and her immune system has to go into overdrive to keep her healthy.

What has this got to do with attraction? During puberty, the hormone Oestrogen is released in girls. Oestrogen widens the hips and selectively deposits fat there as opposed to in other areas of the body. It inhibits the growth of the lower jaw and widens the eyes. Basically it makes girls attractive. The more there is, the more attractive they will be.

Here’s the critical point – Oestrogen is an immune system suppressant. Tests have shown that there is an intricate feedback loop in the body which works in tandem with the immune system to determine how much sex hormone can be safely produced.

So, Girl A can afford to produce a shit-ton of oestrogen and becomes Megan Fox. Unfortunately for girl B, her oestrogen budget is much lower, and she lacks significant physical sexual appeal.

What about guys? The same rules apply, except the hormone is Testosterone, also an immune system suppressant. Testosterone makes guys broad shouldered and widens the lower jaw. It promotes muscle growth, deepens the voice and widens the rib-cage, giving a large, V shaped torso. It prevents fat from being deposited around the hips, and promotes fat deposition on the front of the belly. However, as a general rule, it vastly reduces the deposition of bodyfat in total.

I would guess that these factors determine 60% of male attractiveness and 80% of female attractiveness. Another 10% is what you say/money, and the other 10% is blind luck.
