Nazis may not have been moral exemplars, but they did put a man on the moon:
We used geometric morphometrics to determine which facial traits are associated with the perception of intelligence, as well as with intelligence as measured by IQ testing. Faces that are perceived as highly intelligent are rather prolonged with a broader distance between the eyes, a larger nose, a slight upturn to the corners of the mouth, and a sharper, pointing, less rounded chin. By contrast, the perception of lower intelligence is associated with broader, more rounded faces with eyes closer to each other, a shorter nose, declining corners of the mouth, and a rounded and massive chin.
Why perceived intelligence reflects measured intelligence in men but not women

Only a year ahead of the scientists? Either I’m losing my touch or things are speeding up.
Some other thoughts:
It’s becoming increasingly clear that neanderthal intelligence is recessive in women. As one might expect, white women have retained that quality which benefits them most: beauty. This bolsters my theory that neanderthal intelligence is recessive and extremely robust, having survived the extinction of the species. IQ is highly adaptive in modern life, even if introversion is maladaptive in modern society.
Is neanderthal beauty dominant? It’s hard to say, but it’s probably recessive in the main. It’s competing with melonhead beauty, but daughters of melonhead fathers also tend to have lawyerjaw. Roissy has also mentioned that scalzied fathers tend to have beautiful daughters. Can’t really call this one yet.
