  1. Well, I suppose this is reason #243 to check the HP blog. You never know when you might be featured! I have to admit (to Jason)- choosing chemical engineering is a better choice (at least, it leads to a more lucrative career field). Simone, you could always snag some spit from a male relative to find your haplogroup: you would belong to the same group as your (hypothetical) father, brother, or son.

    • Hehee, this is true! And excellent point about nabbing some spit from a male relative- I just might do that! I think I’ll just tackle someone and do it, too- without any explanation. That’d be really fun. Tehehee!
