Am I Ugly?

Chip Rowe took a long look in the mirror and this is what he saw: “My bulbous nose drifts to the right, and my chin is a bit weak, although it’s skillfully hidden behind a goatee. It’s more difficult to hide the bags under my eyes or the fact I have lost most of my hair, which probably kept me from a career in television. And a few months ago, after more than four decades of checking the mirror daily for zits, I noticed that my right ear lobe is shorter than my left. How do you miss something like that?” All this was part of Rowe’s attempt — with some help from what science says about outer beauty — to answer a question: Am I Ugly?
