Apart from your deeply-rooted pessimism, your inability to navigate the patent absurdities of life with any degree of competence or equanimity and your burdensome, at times crippling, tendency to depression, what terrible things are you passing along to future generations through your terrible genes? Probably asthma. But only if you smoke. Otherwise it's just the stuff where you want to die all the time.
Research suggests that our fathers' genetic material has a stronger effect on the development of our instinctual behaviors (eating and mating), while the higher-order cognitive abilities (language, socialization, etc.) are the result of a greater contribution from our mothers. So now you know who to blame, and for what. [Via]
