An interesting article in the New York Times this morning confirms what we were suspecting all along:

"Men and women differ by 1 to 2 percent of their genomes, Dr. Page said, which is the same as the difference between a man and a male chimpanzee or between a woman and a female chimpanzee."

Now, this explains a lot, doesn't it? No wonder I liked this site so much.

The article, which made the front page of the paper version of the times this morning, but was pushed off the front page of the online edition, is definitely a very sobering read for men. Gentlemen, I have the feeling that our Genetic material will eventually die out, as we carry a very unselfish, poor, under-appreciated gene with the appropriate name "Y". This poor gene can not exchange information the way X genes do, so in order to survive, it has to basically exchange information with itself. Hmm. How sad and how true not only on the genetic level, but on the macro level as well, isn't it?...
Take a look at the rather excellent article by Nicholas Wade: Here
Dear readers. I am not a Chimp. (I like to see myself more as a Snow monkey, but that's a completely different story.)
