the ideal face ...

...this report by Canadian researchers have coined the term "the golden ratio" to define beauty - in women

the report finds that average women fall within the golden range, yet Angelina Jolie does not (well she is not average, but she is certainly beautiful to most eyes)

Shania Twain measures up to this golden ratio (vertical distance between the eyes and mouth, and horizontal distance between the eyes).  Shania is indeed beautiful, but i don't buy the conclusion of the study

beauty is so assorted, so cultured, so subjectified, so intangible, that a numeric value of parts of the whole, do beauty no justice.

... incidentally, all the subjects were white, which, in my opinion, further speaks to the limited conclusivity of the study since the other races are more representative of the world

Lady GaGa rocks, kids! Jiving to the nonsensical but heart-beating "Alejandro" while pulling an allnighter writing my lecture & paper (the aforementioned deadline).

the illogic of logic

I have a deadline - and therefore I procrastinate.  The logic? Non-existent.  Much logic is often over-rated in my opinion.  Unlike alliteration - all alliterations are always awesome, albeit aggravating.  Anyway, I came across this note I had written, possibly for posterity, when I was rummaging through my inbox - for no purpose other than neglecting the said deadline:

"The confinement of religion defies the purpose of religion – which is to evoke in humanity in its entirety, a personal guide to the source of the universe."

It is true and it is false, and thus defies logic.  Or does it?

As for the deadline, since when is a line that is dead of any use to anyone?
