    Absolutely. As long as they look the part.
    Those two? Nope.

    An intelligent and open mind is often in itself sexy enough for me. Unlike good lookin' guys, though, they DON'T come a dime a dozen.

    .......... and intelligence lasts a great deal longer and is ultimately more memorable in terms of history.

    The world still remembers authors from the golden age of Rome but almost no one can tell you the name of the pretty boy who stole Hadrian's heart.

    Why are smart people perceived as ugly? I don't get it.

    Objectify intelligence. Fun!

    He's just an 8 so maybe not quite a hottie but a total hot8.

    Haha, as a (former) top chess player myself: Magnus Carlsen is not really good looking, I know much better looking top chess players! It is a turn-on though when someone is intelligent AND goodlooking (Pietro Boselli is my perfect guy, too good to be real)

    I don't understand why people think that it has to be a trade off between the two. I am an intellectual who is also into physical beauty.

    Antinous or Antigonus, no? Didn't Emperor Hadrian build an entire city in his honor? Pretty legendary story.

    from Wikipedia:

    "During his reign, Hadrian traveled to nearly every province of the Empire. An ardent admirer of Greece, he sought to make Athens the cultural capital of the Empire and ordered the construction of many opulent temples in the city. He used his relationship with his Greek lover Antinous to underline his philhellenism and led to the creation of one of the most popular cults of ancient times.

    Antinous (also Antinoüs or Antinoös; Ancient Greek: Ἀντίνοος; 27 November, c. 111 – before 30 October 130[1]) was a Bithynian Greek youth and a favourite, or lover, of the Roman emperor Hadrian.....He had become the favourite of Hadrian by 128."


    So if this is correct, Hadrian was 52 and was Antinous was 17 when they met. Apparently age is not an issue in ancient Rome and Greece. I suppose being the Emperor had something to do with it.[

    I have intellectual pursuits. I'm into math,science and philosophy. I care more about learning how about a theory works. I don't know how to apply well.

    I have an average looking face. I'm working on my body.

    I've seen this kind of parody many kids of times whereas the "nerd" is turn to a life of a party. This appears contradictory to me.

    That's okay, as long as you don't try to have a sense of humor, as well. You gotta draw the line at some point, or else you're just being a whore.icon_rolleyes.gif

    What people think is sexy is subjective.

    It's going to be hard to win this one... Especially when the "sexy prof" looks a bit like a wannabe Clark Kent.

    Not that a wannabe Clark Kent is badicon_wink.gif

    Yes, you're both correct, and Hadrian grieved greatly when Antinoos died. Afterwards, he built a new city on the banks of the Nile and named it Antinoopolis. He must've been one helluva guy!
