Badger is man after my own heart. Beyond the nostalgia, though, is another question. Where is the sweet spot, the intersection between looks and intelligence that produces a highly desirable candidate for a mate?
Admittedly, this is one of my hobby horses, to the point that I’ll use shoddy research just for the sake of a post with graphs.
The comments to Badger’s post show that I am not alone. Superficially, those actresses are not Alyssa Milano, in her prime of course, but the fact that they are not mouth breathers elevates them.
Which brings us to today’s question: When looking at potential wives and mothers what is more important, the looks or the books?
