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.
