Men More Evolved?  Reply with quote  

"Until recently the Y chromosome was considered the Rodney Dangerfield of genetics, especially because it had fewer genes than other chromosomes. A few years ago some researchers even suggested that the Y chromosome was shrinking so that in 50,000 years it would just disappear and so would men.

"The story is not as cut and dried as many would have liked to predict," Hughes said. "It's kind of fun to say that men are going to die out, but the science is proving now that we've got data that that's not true at all."

We don't want men to die out. We want them around to torture.

Very true, Deb. You guys, AM, are easy targets. If we had to torture other women, it'd have to involve way more thought and planning, and real fear of repercussion.

And soon you'd realize that you were trapped in a world full of jars that can't be opened. Cool

Nah, we learned to open the jars well before we started feeding the ego of the man to open them for us. It's our way.

Said it before, men are mutants but they're all that keep us from being clones-

Ye gods, this speaks volumes about our...er, shortcomings:
