And now, please send $50 to the good folks at the Cafe to keep us from showing your hot girlfriend what you said about her mom...

(Just kidding! ;-) )

(Maybe... B-) )

Wow, never thought it would be so easy to start a career as a blackmailer! Maybe it's time to give up the fantasy football thing and turn to a life of crime... :-D

By my calculations, and according to the tracker on the index page, there are 10238 members. At $50 a head, that works out to $511,900.00. I am ok with this amount. If you knew my girlfriends temper...you would understand.

(there are two genes in every pair) so anyway, Ill use one gene for overall hotness (in reality it would be many genes that contribute). But anyways, say the "hotness" gene is recessive. Her father and mother could both have the hotness gene, but as it is recessive it was overpowered by the ugly factor. So it would look like this...
U= ugly (dominant) h= hot (recessive)

Father Mother

Uh Uh

so there are 4 possibilities. because the ugly gene is dominant, any pair with it proves to be ugly. The combinations are UU (Liza Minelli), two Uh's (Kerry Daughters) and the hh (your girlfriend). So, there is a 25 percent chance of her being hot, despite the fact her family is a bunch of ogres. I hope I put this in terms you can understand.

PS- in reality, they use this method to find out probabality of things like colour blindness, heart problems and various diseases.

I think they taught me that in grade 9 or 10, but I didn't actually pay attention until grade 11 bio. I seemed to forget everything when I took grade 13 bio and got a 53 :-?

What do you call crossing the alleles, again? Something like a "pungent square"? I dunno, like i said I got a 53 and I'm doing commerce in University... :-b
