Use this thread for small talk on miscellaneous issues not worthy of their own thread.

I had a hair transplant operation with the clinic of Dr. Emrah Cinik in Istanbul, with 2750 grafts being mostly placed in the front. It was a success both for general aesthetics and general well-being, and I encourage others to do the same.

I visited Harvard this week for work purposes, and thus ended up spending some time in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It's not altogether that different from other educated, white, upper-middle class enclaves but ... it has a cachet due to Harvard and MIT being in the area.

If I see a beautiful woman (as there are in most places), I feel doubly inferior and inadequate, as there are good odds that she has an IQ of 150+ to boot.

This was mostly after my visit, during which I noticed that all of the scientists that I met are working on difficult and interesting problems, working on them successfully, and people made several constructive and valid critiques of my own work -- though they were also enthusiastic and wanted more information.

It's not a guarantee that a beautiful woman at Harvard would have an IQ of 150+. I personally know a beautiful women who got into Harvard for Phd in Chemistry. She is of average intelligence. Even though she is white, she claimed on the admission application that she is native american. Perhaps that's how she got in despite not-stellar grades and average GRE.

You mean that they stay away from you. They've never set up a campus in Dubbo, New South Wales. They are probably not planning to do so, due to the lack of student demand for pork and onion pie.

I also know some non-spectacular people who have been at or at Harvard or MIT, and it is also likelier to be the case for the general population in Cambridge. That said, the odds are generally better than in most places.

[FYI a lot of PhD programs in the sciences are desperate to have more women and minority members. There's a general desire to have more women and minorities in science, with less agreement as to how to do so.]

Though you said the same thing that my host said. I jokingly said that the median IQ around here must be 150. She said that it's ruled out, as a large fraction of Harvard's students are there as legacies.

Lol so i work in middle management and my boss, who's in her late 30s, has a phD in a stem field. She was in a sorority back in college and dated her current husband (who works in a white collar field) since she was 18/19. She was most likely way attractive back in her prime years, as evident by the fact that she looked great even in her early 30s, and part of me is grateful that she isnt as attractive currently, since I have to interact with her a lot. I'm sure if she had been taking care of herself since she was young and didnt have several kids she'd look pretty great.

she has it all - brains, great personality, looks (she's still somewhat attractive), but most of all, if it werent for her, i wouldnt have been in the position i am in right now. she believed in me, hired me, and contributed to my promotion later on, even after i switched departments.

On the contrary, I have had a boss the opposite of her years ago. this one was ethnic (aztec mexican, injun, think very dark greasy skin/hair), ugly, looked like a man, and had a hard time dating. Lets just say I didnt last long at that job right after word got out that I befriended a few people there, while she couldnt really befriend my popular colleagues after all her years working there.

With an attitude like the one you're displaying here it's no wonder that this woman couldn't penetrate your little work social clique.

You all sound like a bunch of racists.

It irks me to no end being considered the "kid" at my workplace despite being nearly 30. It makes no sense either, since a few of my coworkers have kids who are just now going to college.

Did you get to Dubbo, yourself, when you were living in Aus?
They have a world famous zoo there:

How is what i said racist?

Also, i happen to be pacific islander, and the people in that work social circle consisted of some that were indian or hispanic. That supervisor overloaded us with work when we were short staffed and expected us to meet impossible and unfeasible lead-times. She also nit-picked and found reasons to fire people she didnt like. Birds of a feather flock together, and the only person on our shift that she befriended was some wide-hipped frumpy tall guy with an ugly wife that was as equally bitter.

I have heard of this before. Supposedly the admission forms put down the question as something like "Which race/ethnicity do you most IDENTIFY with?", leaves a lot of leeway eh. Fucking PC.

A school like Harvard really doesn't do any background check on this huh? I guess they could get sued for looking into someones' race

From what I have seen, it's not uncommon in the US for whites to claim that they are native Americans if they have even one ancestor a few generations ago who was native american.
