The Pseudo-Science of a Star's Hotness
A website with a humble purpose: to scientifically ascertain the peak of a given actor or actress’s hotness.

Man, you had me hoping you had come up with some kind of complex algorithm that took aging, box office receipts, ideal vs actual body weight, social responsibility initiatives, et cetera and compared them to recorded data to arrive at a statistically valid determination of any actor/actresses' hotness peak. Instead, his is just kind of like hotornot.

Well, maybe we can start with this data point and work from there. Maybe there's data to be mined about 'average age of hotness' or something.

For the love all that it holy never put the Olson twins on that site!

I'd hate to see what percentage would mark "Full House."

I know this is impractical, but you really have to be collecting some demographics for your voters. You're losing a tremendous amount of structure not knowing which voters are male and which female, for example.

Maybe you could funnel viewers into one of two substantively identical but differently skinned versions of the site, depending on their sex. Like, click "I'm a dude" at a splash page and you see a baby-blue version of the site, essentially no extra design work, and the data is separated by sex (roughly).
