Scientists decoding the human genome have discovered that just 78 genes separate men from women. But what are they?
It's the Y chromosome which makes men men, and now scientists have a better idea than ever before what makes it up.
But lets help them on their way, and in an effort to help us all understand the differences between the sexes, here are my suggestions what those 78 genes might be.
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ADD TO THIS LIST.............he he (as I use the male 'and no, I'm not shouting' gene.....grinning)
SOME OF THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN WOMEN AND MEN
Women have the 'understand colour' gene. They seem to know what to wear all the time. Men have the 'red is nice, pink is nice, so why not have them together?' gene.
Men have the 'no opinions about drapes and curtains' gene.
Women have the 'Oh dear, the toilet paper is on its last sheet; must replace it immediately' gene. This is entirely absent in men who have the 'Oh s..t! Can you pass me a toilet roll, love?' gene!
Women have a 'built in calendar' gene - they remember birthdays, anniversaries and appointments effortlessly.
Women have the 'directional gene'. Ask a woman in the street how to get somewhere and she will direct via shops & stores. Ask a man and it will be via pubs and bars.
Men have the 'speak in sentences' gene. Women have the 'speak in paragraphs' gene.
Women have the 'all you want is a glass of wine, nodding sympathy and a good whinge' gene. Men have the 'offer a solution' gene.
If you told a woman that you had just returned from a trip to the surface of the Moon, she would show her interest by using the 'asking who you had gone with' gene.
Women are missing the 'parking a car in between two straight white lines in an empty car park' gene
Men have the 'when they want something they ask for it' gene. Women have the 'when they want something they make a point distantly related to the subject and wait for a response' gene.
Men have the 'sit in public places with their legs wide open without noticing how startlingly unattractive it is' gene.Men have the 'ability to make a la, la, la, not listening face' gene.
