GOOD LOOKING KIDS
This explains a lot. As I’ve mentioned more than a few times on the Morning Show, I was not the most handsome, athletic or on-the-ball kid in the history of primary education. And it is true, I swear, that my third grade teacher wrote in my 1960 report card that “Roy is a nervous, flighty and unattractive child.” And sadly, honesty would cause me to admit that her observations may have been true.
And it’s funny, because I clearly remember, even as a seven year old, that it seemed to me that the best looking kids got the most attention and the best grades in school. And it looks like I might have been on to something.
A new study found good-looking high school kids get the highest grades. In fact, the best looking students tend to get the best grades. And the researchers say their charmed lives extend beyond school - with the best looking among us getting the better jobs and making more money. So even in my clearly underdeveloped third grade mind, I was hip to what was going on.
But lo, if this is true then explain this to me. Why are there are so few good-looking nerds out there? I mean, think about it...the richest guys in the world are Bill Gates and Warren Buffet. And nobody wants to see either of those guys with their shirt off!!
