Sex is a lot of work.

Today, our AP Biology class had one big giant orgy as part of a study on allele frequency changes in populations, with our class being the sample population.

Apparently, having “sex” is a lot of work.

First you have to take four index cards and write some alleles on them. Then you find a random mate that is probably not The One and make a baby.

If the baby is homozygous recessive, then it dies – and then you have to do it again and again until you get one that survives, and in other cases, you have to flip coins (and scramble to pick them up after they land on the floor and roll over to the next row of desks). And you get what you get – it’s all chance, so no abortions if you don’t like the resulting kid.

After that there’s the recording of data and everything, and when we’re done using Viagra to mate about thirty times in fifty-five minutes (that’s about a baby popping out every half minute), we have to do some math to solve for some variables known as “p” and “q”.

I never knew sex was so much work. Maybe they should include AP Bio as part of sex education – I’m sure it’ll drastically reduce the number of teenage pregancies.

    To Sart: Humans are K-strategists, but the moufflets guy makes humans seem like R-strategists.

    To Moufflets: wow… this activity is pointless. What do you learn besides sex is a lot of work? Do you calculate percentages? You seem made

    well, look on the bright side. This activity provided you with a blog post, an excuse for viagra, the opportunity to accomplish one of your life goals, and an army of mini-moufflets.
