men are more evolved than women

Standard

This may stir something up, but I’m not afraid of controversy.  Besides, facts are facts, right?  According to a news release this week, scientists have now concluded that men are more evolved than women.  Before we jump into the debate of what that means, here’s an excerpt from the article:

Women may think of men as primitive, but new research indicates that the Y chromosome — the thing that makes a man male — is evolving far faster than the rest of the human genetic code. … These changes occurred in the last 6 million years or so, relatively recently when it comes to evolution.

Genetics researcher R. Scott Hawley said, “Wow, that result is astounding.”  Are you surprised, too?

Now, I realize some of you don’t believe in evolution (or at least parts of it).  Regardless of that, scientists are just trying to figure out why men are more “evolved” than women.  Maybe it was something else.  Who knows?

Before you get mad at me, remember I’m just relaying info I saw in the news, for your convenience.  You can draw your own conclusions.  We report, you decide.

(BTW, if the conversation in the comments gets a little heated, remember this is a humor site, so jokes will be made.  If you can’t handle it, you can just browse somewhere else before you get all offended.  Thank you, drive thru…)

scientists discover a skinny gene

Standard

I saw something quite interesting in the news recently : scientists discover “skinny” gene.  If that’s true, then it should be made into a vitamin I can take.   I really miss the days when I had a metabolism, when I could eat whatever I wanted and not gain weight.  But since I got out of college and started working in a cubicle farm, that’s no longer the case.

Now, I know, some of you are thinking I should just eat less and exercise more.   If that’s what I wanted to do, I’d be skinny.  But I enjoy eating.   And while I enjoy some forms of exercise, there’s not always time to do enough of it.  If only I was genetically predisposed to be skinny, then I could eat fried chicken with biscuits & gravy more often.   Oh, and include mashed taters, too, covered with gravy.  Yeah, that’s the stuff.  And I’d order pizza a whole lot more.  I’d definitely eat much better if I was unable to gain weight.  And then I wouldn’t have to rearrange my schedule, giving up fun activities, to make more time for exercise.   And who knows, maybe if I wasn’t overweight and thus had more energy, I’d do more exercise-type activities.  As it is now, exercise makes me feel tired.

So I’m looking forward to being transformed into a skinny person by the benefits of cutting-edge science.  They need to hurry up with it, because I think a lot of people need this.
