What does it mean when you let the pet pick you? damned.gif

Omg I just learned of this painting... damned.gif

An amateur art-lover stands to earn up to £35million after unearthing the missing head that goes with a woman’s naked body in a notorious 19th century painting.

Gustave Courbet’s The Origin Of The World, displayed in one of Paris’s most prestigious museums, the Musee d’Orsay, depicts female genitalia.

Until now it has only showed the body but experts believe the missing head has been uncovered after the anonymous art buff bought it for just £1,200 at a furniture shop.

The Origin Of The World was considered so daring that it was not displayed until 1988.

I was just wondering if anyone else besides this collector verified it.

Can you watch the video Octo (in French, my French is basic) and let me know how he verified it?

No, mine is Le sheat too! chuckle.gif Oh well. I'm sure before anyone hands over 35 million pounds they will seek a second opinion.

Quote:Importance of other women’s characteristics.

Several variables demonstrated a significant probability to be in the best approximating model: Young (β = −0.28; I = 0.91) and more frequently smiling (I >0.99) women were more likely to be chosen by raters. The “asymmetry” variable was adjusted for using the function: × + exp(x). More symmetric women were more often chosen (β = −0.04; I >0.99). The factor exp(x) indicates that attractiveness decreases faster than linearly with asymmetry. To determine the effects of femininity, the association between the degree of smiling and squared femininity was analyzed. Attractiveness increased with femininity, especially if the woman was smiling. Lip contrast did not exhibit a significant probability to be in the best approximating model (I = 0.49).

So, symmetrical with a smile takes the prize.


Quote:The most frequent choice (37%, P = 0.036, see figure 3) tended to be the women presenting similar facial features as the rater. Thus, women presenting similar phenotypes as the raters themselves were predominantly preferred (homogamy).

Is this why long-term couples tend to look like each other?

Does this also apply to selecting a pet? Yes...

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...

"Oh no,it wasnt the airplanes,it was beauty killed the beast"

I've noticed for years how couples,men and women,often look like eachother...

Just by looking at newspapers that show photos of recently married men and women,you'll notice some amazing similarities...

And not only similar faces,but also similar body shapes and sizes as well and you can bet that more often than not,if the womans got a fat a$$,the guy will also have a fat a$$ (*-*)

As far as humans and their pets having similar faces,people place way too many human qualities upon their animals...

And thats usually done by humans who have a hard time getting along with other humans,people who dont know how to have normal healthy emotional relaitionships with other people and or people who dont like other people telling them what to do,because pets dont disagree and they never say no,like humans do...

I've seen women who look way too much like their french poodles,with both of them manicured and pedicured the same way,with disturbingly similar hair and fur styles (*-*)
