Attractive people generally have higher IQ's

As if it wasn't hard enough being this really ridiculously good looking. Now I have to always sound smart too?!

"we love science!"
From the article:
Beautiful people don't just get all the breaks, scientists say they're likely smarter than most people, too. The study indicated attractive men have IQs that are 13.6 points above the average, while beautiful women are 11.4 points higher than average. The study included 52,000 people from both the United Kingdom and United States.

My favorite part of this article is the poll choices (pasted below as of around 2PM EST 1/18/2011)
