Random quotation
I'm tired of all this nonsense about beauty being only skin-deep. That's deep enough. What do you want--an adorable pancreas?
- Jean Kerr

Edit: but forogt to include it. I bought t-shirts yesterday, some for sleep and working out. When looking for sizing they offer waist line siggestions for sizing. The small shirts measured too large. The small shirts. Big S on 'em. Too big. Yeah, too big. This was a very happy-making and frustrating shopping experience. Currently I'm wearing a Hot Topic small T with a superman logo... (Big S... it's a pun, you see) because I'm amazing. When I tried it on at the store I was gaping at the mirror. First thing I said was "Holy shit! I have muscles." For the first time in my life, my chest is wider than my stomach and it is muscular. You should fantasize about my glee.

x-rays of soft tissue don't really show jack- but an utrasound might convince me

But ultrasounds don't give you cancer!

I require PROOF.

What about teeth though? I mean, aren't those more than skin deep? And I guess they don't need to be BEAUTIFUL, but it would sure suck to have teeth or a mouth that was actively ugly. This is just one place a little bit of extra-deep beauty can come in handy. So doesn't beauty need to go just a little deeper than skin deep, at least ideally?

Depends on the veracity of the term "by the skin of your teeth. If this be true then beauty can be skin deep and still allow for nice teeth.

Unless you're British.

what about tongue? Or the inside of your cheeks?

And I reject your argument implying teeth have skin under the meaning of the word as employed by the phrase "beauty is only skin deep". The phrase is wrong, and so are you. Accept your failing and move on. ;)

See, I separate sexiness/beauty/attraction into many things. I have degrees of attractiveness in individual traits, like waht I like best in eyes, noses, legs etc. I also separate intelligence and personality, each can be distilled into traits I prefer and degrees of attraction as the first.

Note: It's not like I weigh these adn clearly the whole is far, far greater than the parts. I just have ideals, like everyone does, but break my ideals into individual bits. :) Because of tis, no one person can ever be my ideal.

Wow, I sound terrible. I need to think tis out better and explain it. Suffice it to asy I don't hold stupidly high standards. I just know waht I like.

Ever asked lostboy about his standards of women? Though he'd never make a list like this, he's pretty much fixated with women that look like aliens. Greens. HUGE eyes. Little jaw, tiny mouth. Thin, willowy neck. Abnormally tiny, petite or thin. Aliens... Seriously.

He once explained his scale for beauty in women. 0-5. (Yes, you can have 0 beauty, which isn't uglyness, but even worse - blandness). It's a log scale. Therefore the difference in attractiveness between a 3 and a 4 is tenfold. Angelina Jolie only (only!) ranks as a 4.2. Being a log scale, a beauty of 5 is almost unattainable. Most normal women are in the 2s. Gene likes women in the middle 3s (ten times more beautiful than the average woman.)
