<<(Reuters) - The Y chromosome was once thought to be a "functional
wasteland" - a carrier of male-determining genes and not much
else. Now researchers have found 12 new genes that suggest that
the Y chromosome also carries a second group of important genes
known as "housekeeping" genes in addition to those that control
gender and fertility, according to a report in Science.
Unfortunately, those housekeeping genes govern the regular
functions of individual cells - they do not stimulate a man to
scrub the toilet or tidy up the house.

Damn!!!!! I was kinda hoping that's exactly what it meant. Ernie, you don't
play fair. Didn't anyone tell you it's not nice to tease someone with
enticing subject lines?
