To Qualify

I just saw an ad for a study for acne treatment on TV.  These were the requirements to be eligible to participate in the study, which only "may" include compensation.
I don't know which would be more disheartening - Seeing this ad and then actually counting all the whiteheads and blackheads on your face to see if you quality?  Or realizing that you are just one popable zit away from earning money for your acne? 
Can you imagine having to bear the brunt of 99 blackheads and then being told that you are just shy of the standards of the study?  Talk about rubbing salt in wounds.  Or acne scars in this case.
This seems like some sort of acne discrimination.  I've never been more happy to not be good enough.
