i'd choose intelligence over beauty. beauty is transient, it fades over time, but intelligence never fades. obviously, i understand that beauty is important too, because there's not much use to being smart if you look like the human equivalent of frankenstein's monster. no one would want to listen to your brilliant observations~ if you look revolting, and all that intelligence would go to waste. but still, if given the choice, i'd much more rather be smart & ugly than pretty & dumb. if it would make me an outcast, so be it. imho having a low IQ is the most terrible curse a human being can have
