The Importance of Mendel

January 13, 2008

Sometimes I worry that one day, a Greenpeace volunteer and an ICICI Credit Cards sales executive will meet, fall in love, marry, and have babies. And that with this awesome parentage behind it, the babies will grow up to be the most tenacious, irritating direct salesmen ever. Words cannot describe the unspeakable horror that would result.

Then I remember that inheritance is Mendelian and not Lamarckian. And I sigh with relief.
