Back in my day, we had hotornot.com 1.0, and we liked it.

If you have to ask, you're probably ugly.
 
2012-02-27 10:34:56 AM  
Ugly? Don't know. An idiot, yes.

I really don't understand teens.

1) If you go to the teens section of a library it's all Judy Blume books.
2) If you go to the teens section of a porn store it's all butt-sex.

What's up with that?

Have you read Judy Blume? They're all about butt-sex. Trust me, it's in the sub-text, full of double entendres.

Fool. You can gauge how attractive you are by how much free stuff people are willing to give you.

This is why I only do my grocery shopping on Saturdays. Free samples as far as the eye can see.

If you keep in mind that teens are brain-damaged retards, this makes perfect sense.

Oh jeez, I forgot about that website. I uploaded a picture of myself there when I was maybe 17. God knows why.

I think it got about a 7, which was pretty damn cool by me.

When these kids state "people tell me I'm ugly all the time", I wonder who they're really referring to: their classmates, a parent, a teacher? Who the message is coming from might make a difference in the child's' mind.

However, not everyone is photogenic. I sure as heck am not. Online reviews of your photos can inflate or deflate egos in a way that may not reflect real-life reality.

Most likely from peers who feel like they need to compete for attention and destroying their rival's self-esteem is the best way to do so. When you're a typical teenager, what your peers say ALWAYS takes precedence over mentors and/or authority figures say.

It goes the other way too. I've seen people (celebrities, even) that look plain or even ugly in person. but when you capture their image in two dimensions via camera, they suddenly become gorgeous.

Some people only look good with the proper lighting. I look terrible on camera when lit from above, and great when lit from the side or below. I typically avoid cameras because there aren't that many opportunities to be in the proper lighting.

I was just about to make a very similar point. I met one girl on a trip a few years ago who is reasonably attractive in-person but usually doesn't look nearly as good in low-light photographs. Then I turned off the flash on my camera and snapped another photo with a longer exposure (while holding the camera VERY still), and it turned out almost perfectly.

these teens must not understand the internet at all. It doesn't matter what a person looks like according to youtube comments some will say they are hot some will say they look ugly and about 76% will say that they will hit that all night long.

Hell people where saying Sarah Palin was hot and every time i see her i almost want to throw up, although that has more to do with the stupid.

Every time I posted a photo to hotornot.com it was taken off the site before it was rated. I never did naughty things in those photos, unless you count the surly pout I thought was so attractive.

Can't these teens get their insults and drama at school like the rest of us, dammit?

So hotornot.com made duckface a bannable offense? I think I just gained a little posthumous respect for them.

/never visited the site in its heyday because even as a teenager I thought it was too shallow

That's why I said it could also inflate egos. I used to know a couple of folks who had huge online social networks due in part to their looks in photographs. In real life, they didn't look nearly as good. They actually kept their social lives virtual for fear of people discovering how they really looked. Yes, they were that insecure.


EvilEgg: Google Myspace cropping


Is just one of many things that could make somebody look better in photos than in person. A professional photographer along with a makeup artist and digital photo editor can highly manipulate someone's appearance.

I always thought that this Dove video exposed the issue perfectly.

The original title of her most most famous book was "Are You There God? I'm Grabbing My Ankles", but the publisher forced her to change it.
