Funny Thought: Lie your way to physical attractiveness

If you lie about something often enough, it eventually becomes the truth.  The Bush Administration has already demonstrated this to perfection, of course.

Based on this insight, I'm conducting a psychological experiment.  The experiment is I take a generic, plain-looking guy, lie repeatedly that he's very good-looking, and then see when people start thinking of that guy as physically attractive.  The subject I chose for this experiment is me.

Which is why I keep lying about how good-looking I am.  The theory is if I do this often enough, eventually you'll think to yourself, "Wow, Meng suddenly looks very attractive today, I don't know why".

And when that happens, let me know, so I can collect the data.  I'm very scientifically-minded, even thought I'm obviously very good-looking.
