Quote# 695

It is telling that if one compares the DNA of a human, a cow and a kangaroo one finds that the human DNA is more similar to the kangaroo (a marsupial, of course) than the cow (a fellow mammal). Why is this?

Because marsupials are mammals, dickwad. They just have pouches where they keep their young.

Um, marsupials are mammals.

Um . . . actually I think your wrong. I think we share a closer common ancestor with cows than kangaroos. I don't know where you're getting this information, but I'm fairly sure you're wrong.

Also, marsupials are mammals. If you don't know that, really, I shouldn't be surprised if you got the rest of your facts wrong too.

He is wrong. Human DNA is closer to a cow's than a kangaroos. 85 million years instead of 140.

Andy's DNA most resembles a rutabaga.
