Secrets of the “X”

Scientists make another claim to have figured out How Things Work, this time in reference to the X chromosome. The authors of the study suggest “that men and women owe their sex partly to chromosomes that evolved from a genderless organism less than 300 million years ago.”

Not only that:

The Y chromosome has steadily eroded to a little stump over the millennia, a process that holds out the intriguing theory that men may eventually be eliminated by evolutionary pressure.

Ri-ight. And pigs may grow wings and fly out of my hard drive.

  1. No way. Without men around all the women would starve. There’d be no one to open the jars.
