"It is true, and thus the question of whether it is sad or happy has no meaning whatever."

I just found a way to waste way too much time. "The Face of Tomorrow" is a project of putting together composite faces in a bunch of cities in the world...kind of what the city would look like in X years if the population isolated. There's an extensive research literature showing that 'averaged' faces are rated most attractive, so yes, the composites are gorgeous. I spent a lot of time looking at them.

I do note, however, that there seems to be an attractiveness bias in the photos used to make up the composites.
