I already don't have looks so that kinda narrows it down.

I said intelligence because, even though I often feel stupid, I avoid cameras far more than I avoid trying to do smart things.

That said, I don't really want to be known for either.

Obviously intelligence is the better answer, but I have put good looks to keep this poll from being a complete rout. Also the other person so far who has voted for looks I happen to know is a complete brainbox.

I think that the real reason for such a high intelligence answer is the wording of the poll. I would rather be "Known for" my intelligence as I guess 78% of our region. It seems stereotypically shallow to rather be "Known for" looks over intelligence. We may have had a more diverse answer if there were more less stereotyped options. Like strength, or perseverance, or bravery.

In Hunter Leptk, crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare.

Not to be known for either makes sense. We donít want to be put in little boxes. And yet, in my heart of hearts Iíd like to be known for both high intelligence and great beauty. A boy can dream.

Absolutely right, but it is a Would You Rather? question which is based on the idea of one or the other. Of course, Iíd rather be cherished for a whole range of fine qualities, with my not-so-fine qualities accepted and forgiven.

Recommendations:

1) I am reading Find Me (Trouve-moi in French) by Andrť Aciman. It is the sequel to Call me by your name. Philosophical, romantic.

2) I have watched Itís a Sin (Channel 4, UK). About the time of AIDS, sad yes, but very funny too, lots of pretty people and great performances. Absolutely fabulous.

I'd rather be know for my good looks. Intelligence is only brain-deep.

Very droll, my dear.

In Wink Wonk We Like Stonks, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu.

The region Where the wild things are is no more. When a nation ceases to exist there is a record kept of it in the Boneyard. When a region is no more itís as if it never existed.

Well noted. And, as people in RL can be stateless, why can't nations be regionless ?

In Otis-T, the large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defence, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Void.

This would only be right and just, but I like regions, two of them anyway.

An aside - Do you realise that Iím part of the international ťlite? I do a modest job, get a modest wage and donít live in either London or Montreal, but I read the Guardian and donít vote Conservative, so I guess Boris Johnsonís got me dead to rights. When I said Brexit was really stupid, Theresa May called me a citizen of nowhere. Who am I to argue?

What I like about NationStates are the regions, though, particularly Nudist Dreamland and Gay Equality. People come from anywhere and everywhere. We are not all the same, but we are soul mates.

Poll results. Would you rather be known for your intelligence or your good looks?

Intelligence 16, Good Looks 8. Ha ha, closer than some of us thought, eh?

Well, your incessant campaigning for fewer intelligence answers probably helped influence the outcome. ('.

Do you mean camping or campaigning? I donít mind being camp but I hope that didnít affect the result.

Whoops,
And I mean no harm.
I only kid.

I am now reading Wings (Les Ailes in French) by Mikhail Kouzmine, the first Russian novel of homosexual love. It was written in 1905 and is said to be more forthright than anything by Wilde, Gide or Proust. It should be interesting and I will tell you if it is.

Hmmm...I suspect some of those 16 votes for Intelligence may come from self-hating Good Lookers.

Youíve put your finger on it.

Thank you, kind sir. I have my moments.

Here we go again. Would you rather ... ?

Regional Poll ē Would you rather be a little late or way too early?

How little late ? Like, 5 minutes or so ?
Fashionably late ?

little. It has been spoken.

In Ergyng, school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time.
