I run Biomedical Ephemera and Cabbaging Cove. See my "About Me" section in the Links to find them. Or do a Google. Whatever milks your Guernsey.

About 5–10% of people from Melanesia, a group of islands northeast of Australia, have naturally blonde hair — the highest prevalence outside Europe. Yet people from the region have the darkest skin pigmentation outside Africa.

I love Melanesian hair! It’s genetically distinct from European blonde, and is caused by a different pigment-loss mutation.
Did you know that there are dark-skinned redheads, too? There are auburn-haired Indians (mostly concentrated around Kashmir), and a sizable population of red-haired Iranians. The red hair mutation, however, only occurred once in human history, unlike the blonde mutation.

    Are you a dancer?

  • Me:

    Why?

  • Guy:

    You walk on your tiptoes, and you're overall just very graceful.

  • Me:

    Oh, no. I just have fucked up feet. My Achilles tendons are really short.

  • Guy:

    You know, you have really nice skin, like you moisturize really well.

  • Me:

    Nah, just greasy skin.

  • Guy:

    What are you reading about?

  • Me:

    The effect of climate change on the spread of infectious diseases.
