Chad in my third year of a physics degree here.
Why are there so many ugly people in my courses? I hate having to look at them.
Not even bait why the fuck are the sciences filled to the brim with ugly people?
When you spend 16 hours a day on schoolwork, you don't have time to maintain a wavy hairstyle, continually buy the trendiest new electronics or bleach your asshole.
What you do have time for, however, is to not eat. Which leaves me wondering why so many science and engineering professors are so fat.
That isn't the reason at all. STEM people are just genetically unattractive - they have ugly faces and ugly bodies.
It's a few things. It's difficult and dry; most people who just want money and are willing to tolerate difficult and dry studies can just go into business and get similar money. Most people would rather study something easier and use networking to get a job (le stem meme really is just that - you can get a job with anything if you network competently) and/or study something that stimulates their sense for empathy and the human condition (the humanities and social sciences just talk to most people's experience of being alive much more directly and concretely than STEM). All of this means it selects for people people who are nerds with poor social skills, who are less likely to be attractive because being attractive makes it less likely that you'll be asocial.
what college you go to OP?
>tfw everyone here who is also studying physics is super attractive
I made eye contact with a qt guy who looked like he could have been a robot but it went nowhere
in more math-based STEM fields you can't just brute-force the material, you have to put your effort into understanding it. I never spend time memorizing formulae or whatever I just make sure I can derive it on my own during the exam if I need to
this isn't biology where if you spend enough time at it you'll graduate with a shiny science degree. you need to actually be intelligent
how dare you I'm in physics
cs/maths student here
all the physics kids in my uni are reddit-y and love black science man and watch shit like markiplier on youtube and unironically enjoy ted talks or the joe rogan podcast
