Well the heat wave has finally broken (for now.) and the AC at work is being replaced! *happy dance of joy*
And now that my neutrons are firing again, I can deliver on the something interesting that I promised last time.
Here it is: How to trick people into thinking you're really good looking. (warning, language and content)
The really interesting thing about this video is that, since I work in a coffee shop on a university campus, I get to see a lot of college girls. And what struck me was how similar the girl in the video looks to a lot of my customers. I have never heard our standard of beauty for young women so clearly defined.
Bleached hair + tan + heavy eye makeup +fake eyelashes = cultural norm.
At least half my regular college-girl customers look EXACTLY like that. And it got me thinking.
What are some other standards of beauty in the U.S? And are these standards common in places like Canada and Australia?
What do you think?
