Ghostexorcist studies paleoanthropology, so he's kind of like a biologist.

And I'm just sitting here being a first-year ethology student.

Genes are not really a strong suit of mine. I'm more about the bones and the primate behavior.

That was my guess; for both C and D the carrier has two copies of the lethal gene and so not as likely to live to reproduce. The heterozygous individual would have a better chance of living long enough to pass it on.

RE: Small Things That Make You Smile Thread
That's it! I'm taking this to Quora!

I'm still betting on E. But it's not like I have a choice since that was the answer I put down...

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

On the exam was the following question:

Those most likely to pass on a lethal allele are:
A) Naturally selected
B) Lucky
C) Homozygous dominant
D) Homozygous recessive
E) Heterozygous


Also, on the bus ride home, I saw a big German Shepard carrying what appeared to be a half a brick in his mouth from around a construction site.

nah its E

That seems to be the consensus of the two people who have answered the question on Quora as of writing.

I was told this and then told "See you in three years".6 months later I discovered I had very serious cancer. Colonoscopies are virtually useless. Be wary. I have no faith in them other than they are fun to watch on the monitor. A bit like some weird Star Trek episode.
