Ten Thousand years from now, there will be two separate species of human beings: an intelligent ruling class and an underclass of what the Daily Mail calls "dim-witted, ugly, goblin-like creatures."
Niall Firth reports that researcher Oliver Curry says that the ruling class will be between six and seven feet tall and live to be 120 years old. He quotes Curry as saying, "Physical features will be driven by indicators of health, youth and fertility that men and women have evolved to look for in potential mates." He predicts that the males of this species will have "symmetrical facial features, deeper voices and bigger penises" and the women will have "glossy hair, smooth hairless skin, large eyes and pert breasts."
He doesn't seem to think that ugly people will continue to find sexual partners, but most of us?whose ancestors weren't especially pretty?know a secret: there's someone out there for EVERYONE.
