Ow, my DNA!

Post by Gord » Wed Mar 01, 2017 3:25 am



Neanderthal DNA doesn't get much play in modern human brains or testicles. Sad.

Thanks, Trump.

I would not worry, Gord. Human DNA is enough. Homo sapiens has a very large penis relative to body weight (more than any other primate), and humans have a stronger and longer lasting sexual intercourse experience than any other primate. Of course, I can only make such claims on behalf of myself......

Approximately one half of Homo sapiensisses are going to strongly disagree with that, Lance ;)

Not wanting to boast, but that half of Homo sapiens has not complained to me.

I put this to the test for the sake of science.
1) Orangutans, but after the sex act they became all emotional and really clingy after just one root.
2) Bonobos were hot in the sack, but the rubbing of poo everywhere, eventually put me off.
3) Howling monkeys were howling non stop.....but was it me or just what they do?
4) Baboons .....nice arse!
5) Humans

It's now over to Dr Jane Goodall for the ladies' point of view.

Five a.m. weather. It's currently clear out, temperatures are hovering at around -19 Celsius (that's -3 Fahrenheit for those of you still yearning for the middle ages when Trump's America was still grate). The wind is blowing at 10 km/hour out of the south, and the humidity is a bone-cracking 71%.

Back to you, Pood.

Must be rough being a poor Merkin who has to deal with medieval temperature units, and and pre-medieval politicians.
Today, we have a 26 Celsius temperature predicted. We bask in the gentle warmth.

The last car I drove that had mph on the speedometer was a rental on the Big Island of Hawaii 18 months ago, on my first visit to that state. Driving on the right was interesting, and took a lot of concentration, but I survived and the car was returned without any dings.

Did you have a driver's license for the US?

I don`t have a US drivers license and in the past have rented cars just using my Japanese license, not bothering with obtaining an international license. No problems so far...

Reciprocity, perhaps. I had an international driver's license when I was in Italy, back in the '70s.

Not so. The last time I rented in the US it was a large US produced car - don`t remember which. A teenager daughter of friends there commented that I had rented an `old-man-car`, and not a flash car like a Japanese model. I rent whatever they have since it is only for a few days and I am not out to impress.

I once rented the Camry – when it was all the rave and we were considering buying a new car. Glad I did that, since it put me off of that `desire`. It was OK, but not up to the hype. We bought a used car, again.

I own a Camry....
It is an 'ordinary' car, in that it is free of bling and unnecessary boollsheet additions. But it is sufficiently big and powerful, and very reliable. It was moderately priced, and probably represents the best deal I have ever made in buying a good car.
