Important Research


Important Research

The Cranky Old Man blog shutdown has temporarily been reinstated due to shit I just can’t believe and must comment.

During these painful virus shutdown days, days of illness, depression and death, I read an article about some very important research at a respected university.

While some of our most intelligent people are working to develop a vaccine to cure Covid-19; while some are fighting to find therapeutics to treat those with Covid-19, Temple University is studying the effects of a face mask and the attraction of one’s face.

The Temple University's College of Public Health and the Center for Human Appearance at the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman School of Medicine has found in a small study that a surgical face mask actually increases the attractiveness of both the male and female face. 

(Apparently more study is needed on the attractiveness of gender-neutral faces.)

This study result is both interesting and disturbing to me.

Interesting that a surgical mask would make a person’s face more attractive.  Personally. the face mask is a bit off-putting to me. 

It may be attractive in a weird nurse-fantasy kind of way, but mostly I prefer to see a person’s face.  That’s just me, the study by the Temple University's College of Public Health and the Center for Human Appearance at the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman School of Medicine says otherwise.  So that is interesting.

What is disturbing is that there is even a Temple University's College of Public Health and the Center for Human Appearance at the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman School of Medicine. 

Who goes through four years of undergraduate school, three years in medical school so they can do research for a Center for Human Appearance?

“So, after 7 years of school and hard work, what do you want to do with your superior intellect and education?

“I am going to join the "Center for Human Appearance" and research what makes a person more or less attractive.  I particularly wish to study the effect of a surgical face mask and perceived attractiveness.”

“Well. That seems like a worthwhile study after a 7-year investment of time and work.  What will you do with the result of such a study?”

“Ah, well, we will release the result of the mask study so that people can…er…decide…um…I don’t know.  Wait, the fact that the mask makes one more attractive will convince everyone to wear a mask and thus help defeat Covid-19 and save the world!”

I feel better now. 

Keep up the good work Temple University's College of Public Health and the Center for Human Appearance at the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman School of Medicine.

  1. They could have been studying women in veil for the last 400 years in the Middle East. Saudi Men find eyes and ankles to be the most attractive parts of the female body. I wonder why???

  2. More disturbing is that research dollars were spent on this nonsense.

  3. Nice to see you back on Blogger, Joe. With all the types and patterns of face masks there are, I would imagine that people are judged on that also. Some are funny, and I tend to like those people better.

  4. It is amazing they spend money on researching this.

    Just so you know, i've missed your blog and i have been praying for you and your Mrs. C, as well as the rest of your family, daily.

  5. So good to see you back Joe and hope it is more frequent. You have been missed. Well if they can convince people that wearing them makes them more attractive, maybe it will make more willing to put one on. I have often thought that some didn't want to wear them because it hid their perceived awesomeness. This might change their minds. We can hope.

  6. Seems like such a worthless study and a great waste of money!

  7. It is good to see you back online. You've given me quite a few chuckles. Although we have different politics; your politics is as good as anyone else. I worry about people who can't accept someone else has a different opinion.

    The mask is quite good at hiding the fact I am going out with no make-up, etc.

  8. Great to see you back!

    I totally understand about the shit you can't believe that you must comment on. Think of it as good for your health. You can't keep this stuff bottled up inside.

    I guess even the researchers are BORED out of their minds -

  9. The mask can cover a lot of acne. So in that case, I guess it could make people more attractive. I think even a non-high-school-valedictorian can figure that out, without seven years of college.

  10. Seems like a waste of good schooling to me. Nice to see you back.

  11. I've worn a surgical mask for almost 50 years and now I find out I could have gotten paid to study people in masks? I am ALWAYS one day late and a dollar short! I do think the people at Walmart look better in a mask. I think I do too. 😷
