The average person in your area is hot


A photographer has traveled around the world takings snaps of people to come up with what an "average" person looks like in different cities. Is it just me or is every composite image way better looking than any average person you'd see out and about?  Maybe I just live in an ugly area.

faktablad is completely right here

its because all variables are mediated

like, take to big a hamburger, and to small a hamburger, if you take the middle of it, you have the perfect sized burger

Average face, average ass, average income, average age, average puking.

Shivers, the offending comment was removed. 


Why the heck is the USA not represented?

Blackgoku, this is a news post and in civilized pixel communities we don't tell people they suck. We instead give critiques on how to improve their piece. I personally don't see anything wrong with  the piece, the arms are a little skinny but thats about it. If you're going to voice your dislike for something, atleast take the effort to say why. Otherwise people are just going to look down on your posts.

I agree, the people seem very attractive and non average. I guess by average they are mixing good looking and not so good looking but it turns out there are more good looking people than bad looking?

Well my area (not london) has mainly got alot of really young or really old people so I find neither that good looking/

You live in an ugly area? Well, if it matters, I live near the number 11 ugliest town in america.

Hehe the London people look average. Not that hot.

I thought it was because the composites are edited so they don't have any skin anomalies.

The reason they are "hot" is because the human brain percieves average features as hot.  It's in our genetic makeup.
