How long does it take to notice if someone's attractive?

We all know attractive people receive preferential treatment - they're more likely to be noticed, dated, hired, and promoted. There was a recent study trying to answer this question - how long does it take to notice if someone's attractive? The results is 13 milliseconds; as if people noticed it before people even know they looked. Researcher found people's (brain) reaction times to attractive faces were significantly faster than that of un-attractive faces.

I experienced this tonight. . . drunk regular asked to sit down by me, a cop, and a tech. Beautiful and I do mean beautiful. . .blond blue eyed beauty asks drunk to sit down and he sits. Everyone watched it and laughed including me. We had a captive audience and they were rolling.
Sad but true stat. . . thanks for reminding us.
