Why, oh seriously, why?

In an effort to curb...or push plastic surgeries from happening, I found this little bit of software to be a rather, um, depressing view of the human psyche.
The NY Times has a look into software that "makes you more beautiful" by analyzing your face and re-rendering the most beautiful variant--in other words, it's plastic surgery, before the surgery.
While the software and the technology behind it is cool, it's kind of frightening how vain we are as humans. Of course, that's coming from someone living in the vainest city in the USA, so, take that with some granules of salt.
