I have a few questions for people.
1. What is the current estimate for how many genes does the human
2. What is the current estimate for how many base pairs does the human
3. I was told that the more introns that you have, the greater your
lifespan. But if all genes are at fixed loci, how can one human have
more introns than another? It seems to me that loci positions would
restrict intron length.
4. Lastly, in the current modern society, which person has more genetic
"fitness," the one who irresponsibly produces more children than they
can afford, or the one who has fewer because they spend their time
seeking a career, or because they are more responsible?
