I think they might be conflating talent with fame.

It seems especially true with women. I think of all my favorite female visual artists that I follow, none of them are uggos, and I didn't know what they looked like before. In fact, they usually turn out to be extremely attractive.

Seems true with dudes as well though. Maybe it's a chicken and egg thing. More successful people can afford to take care of themselves better, so they tend to look better.

Whenever unhealthy people achieve success it's difficult for them to maintain it for long... and when they do they're probably miserable company and nobody
healthy wants to breed with them.

I'm talking in extremes here... I'm probably somewhere in the mildly unhealthy zone

Is it just me or do beautiful people also tend to be the most talented? Life isn't fair.

This feels very easy to disprove as confirmation bias but I don't have the energy (probably bc of my poor health)

If you could read Chinese you'd see their twitter is blowing up too. Pleb.

Today on my bike commute to work, I passed three HPD officers on horseback before stopping at an intersection. While waiting for the light to change I became completely mesmerized by a window washer high up on the side of the Marriott, tethered by nothing but bungees and plungers. He looked like an insect up there, systematically wiping and climbing. Higher and higher.

I imagined people inside the room, thirty floors up, enjoying a cup of coffee, opening up their curtains and then being startled by the sight. How many things do you think that window washer sees on the job? How often do people see him? How long does it take him to do this? Would you do a few floors a day?

I completely lost myself in thought watching this guy while the light turned green and the mounted cavalry passed me, then snapped out of it when one of the officers looked down at me and said, "pretty high, huh?" If I actually had been stoned that would have scared the shit out of me.
