78 Genes

-
According to scientist there are only 78 genes separating men from women. We all know that it is the Y chromosome which makes the difference, but...
All chromosomes contain the structure of DNA. And there, in this coiled DNA you can find many genes, regulatory elements and other nucleotide sequences. And because genes are the basic units of heredity, all living things depend on them.
And as the question of difference between men and women is everlasting and everybody has something to say about it, the BBC Online readers suggested what those 78 genes might be.
You can find the whole article here (with all 78 gene-answers), but here are some of my favourite replies:
.
1. Women have the If you need to be told I am not going to tell you gene.
-
2. Ask a woman in the street how to get somewhere and she will direct via shops. Ask a man and it will be via pubs.
-
3. Women can use sex to get what they want. Men cannot, as sex is what they want.
-
4. Women know when all you want is a glass of wine, nodding sympathy and a good whinge. Men offer a solution.
-
5. When men want something they ask for it. When women want something they make a point distantly related to the subject and wait for a response.
-
6. Women could never invent weapons that kill, only ones that make you feel really bad and guilty until you surrender.
-
7. Men can write their names clearly in the snow.
-
8. Women order rice and eat men's chips.
-
9. Women have the ability to brain dump their entire day when they get home - men can only remember that it went OK.
-
10. Women eat curry if they like it. Men eat curry to prove they can.
-
(And you can guess what line was told by woman and what by man:-)

Very funny, N. We already have some of those genes at our house, I'm going to give it some thought and see what I can come up with. Only genetics can explain some things, otherwise I could't stand it! ;~)
