The point is you never got hooked Mufi bro. So it was easy for you to quit. I am glad that you didnt get obsessed with nicotine. It just doesnt pay.

I'll quit in 2012. (12/12/12 is my target)

I have not smoked a cigarette for long long time. I only crave for one if I see a colleague or friend smoking. Six months ago I would normally ask for one. Now I try to resist asking for cigarette, at the begining it was hard now it's getting easy.

Freddie Mercury died 20 years ago(24th November 1991) - whether you like(d) Queen or not, man he was some lead.

Of course his real name being Farrokh Bulsara and his growing up in India means some feel that little bit closer to him and his career.

Yes, in most species which utilize sexual reproduction.

In mammals, it has been observed in bonobos (apes as closely related to us as chimpanzees), macaque monkeys, elephants, lions, giraffes, sheep, bisons, hyenas and dolphins.

Same-sex behaviour is also seen in many birds, such as black swans, flamingos, pigeons, vultures and penguins. In fact, about a quarter of all black swan pairings are male homosexual pairings. Apparently each of these male pairs form a temporary threesome with a female to get her to lay eggs, before driving her away from the nest. More of "their" offspring survive to adulthood than that of heterosexual pairs, presumably because they are better able to defend larger portions of land.

Same-sex pairs, both male and female, are also seen commonly in penguins, where the homosexual couple will build nests and try to hatch a rock as a substitute for an egg. In fact, in New York's Central Zoo, Roy and Silo, a male couple, were doing precisely that when the zookeepers gave them an egg from a heterosexual couple who had laid two eggs but could take care of only one. Roy and Silo hatched and raised the healthy young chick, a female named "Tango" by the keepers. And when she reached breeding age, Tango ended up pairing with another female penguin called Tanuzi.

There are a number of interesting evolutionary theories about what prevents same-sex behaviour from being selected against in the population, but that's a topic for another day.

Sorry for lowering the tone, but I couldn't help but remember the Penguins from Madagascar. Explains a lot (They were from the New York Central Zoo too!)

Some are of course hermaphrodites and reprouce through parthenogenesis....


Edit: no it doesn't. See posts below..

Not quite, Zeeshan.

Hermaphrodites are organisms with both male and female sexual reproductive organs -- the cases you are thinking of, e.g. that of C. elegans, involve the same animal producing both sperm and ova, leading to the latter being fertilized by the former. In other words, it's still sexual reproduction: the progeny gets genetic material from both the sperm and the egg, albeit from the same parent.

Parthenogenesis is a different beast altogether. In most cases sperm isn't involved at all. The egg/ovum continues to divide and develops into an organism without fertilization -- so it's a form of asexual reproduction.

Because of issues involving imprinting, parthenogenesis does not occur normally in mammals; though obviously we can and have induced it in the laboratory. The closest you'll come to it in the wild is in the case of teratomas -- essentially situations where a reproductive germ cell continued to develop as a tumor without fertilization. In some rare cases, such a teratoma will be quite well developed, becoming a foetus in fetu containing hair, teeth, bone and, extremely rarely, more complex organs such as eyes, torso, and hands, feet, or other limbs. I have, obviously in jest (and yes, this is how nerdy biologists joke amongst themselves), suggested that Jesus could have been such a teratoma -- it would explain the virgin birth.
