Well, Duh

Beautiful People Generally Happier, UT Researchers Find: "They say money can't buy happiness — but can good looks do the job?

For men and women both, for Canadians and Germans and Americans and Brits alike, yes they can, UT researchers Daniel Hamermesh and Jason Abrevaya have found. Attractive people are generally happier than their plain- or ugly-looking counterparts.

The results come largely because personal beauty improves the economic factors — income, marriage prospects, etc. — that affect happiness, the researchers say."
