    And approximately 96% genetic similarity with chimpanzees.

    They mentioned that DNA thing on NOVA last week. Though judging by the people you can see at WALMART, 2.5% is a very low estimate.

    The New Zealand Lesser Short – Tailed Bat only bites Europeans and Asians playing the Subcontrabass saxophone. :)

    Of course, the (insert despised group here) contain more than 90% Neanderthal DNA.
    (From what I understand … that may not be such a bad thing.)

    Have you seen the football players in public school? It is more like 96%.

    It’s bad enough to be a bat but it’s worse to be a lesser bat with a short tail and stuck on the ground.

    If that is so then African Americans and other races would contain MORE THAN 2.5% NEANDERTHAL DNA!

    So remember not to say that you share 50% of your genes with your siblings.

    Actually, according to the Nova episode that Simpsonfan mentioned, Homo Sapiens spread out from Africa and cross-bred with Neanderthal. People of African descent have less than the 2.5 average for Europeans.
