AllExperts Friday: Yes, Virginia, there's a 50% chance of blue eyes in your future...
I get variants on this question at least once a week in the genetics category. I'm slowly building a generic form letter as an answer. I'd appreciate feedback from my science readers on clarity and if I've said outright wrong things.
_Questioner: Expectant Mother
Subject: What will our baby look like?
Question (This week)
My husband and I are goofing off with our family members and guessing what our lovely little baby girl will look like when she is born. Both husband and myself have light skin. I have hazel green eyes, and hubby has blue. I have light to medium brown hair with an auburn undertone. Hubby has blonde hair, with red(almost orange) facial hair. His mom is a natural red head, and his dad has black hair. My mother has red hair,... more »

Stop playing World of Warcraft and do something useful for a change! Did your mother just tell you that? You could go outside and enjoy the nice weather or you could continue to play a computer game but help scientists at the same time. Play Phylo and and align some human DNA sequences to mouse and the fruit fly. Don't do this if you are a Creationist as your head may explode.

END THE RECIPE HIATUS: My Best Hot Lunch Recipe Of Today
White Beans In Chicken Stock
1 lb/450g dried white beans, black beans, or black-eyed peas
1 carrot, washed, ends cut off
1 celery stalk, washed
1 medium onion, ends cut off, sliced in half
1 chicken carcass (or 1-2lb meaty animal bones.)
4-6 peeled and smashed garlic cloves, or to taste

1. Rinse beans off in the colander. Inspect for (and discard any) rocks. Pour beans into a large pot that has a lid, ideally a 3-5 qt (3-6L) stockpot. Put at least three inches (7.5cm) water on top of the beans. Add 1 tsp (5ml) salt, and a pinch of epazote. Cover, heat pot to boiling, boil two minutes uncovered, then cover pot and turn off the heat. Allow to soak covered 1-24hr.... more »

I had another 'You couldn't have been fat. Why are you dieting?' conversations as I heated my lunch today. Those still feel odd. They pity me and congratulate me at the same time, and I want to say; the fat me has not died. I'm still me. I've been 'dieting' for years. It's not really diet any more. It's living and eating well, and within my means. I'm pretty happy with how I look, not tomorrow, not next year, but today. Live today, and love the process.
That philosophy seems to wash right by most people. I think it's because they're too busy evaluating themselves to listen. Which is just sad.

Because I've not shared AllExperts in a while... How important is lots of genes?
Questioner B, from USA:
QUESTION: Why does bacteria have more DNA than a ox?
ANSWER: Hi B!
I'm curious to see where you got your information; perhaps there was a typo? As far as I know, an ox (a subspecies of cattle) has approximately 22,000 genes, while the poster-child bacterium E. coli has 4288 genes. The total bovine genome is 3 billion base pairs according to the annotated sequence by the Nat'l Institute of Health in the US, while the E. coli genome is about 4 million base pairs.
So, bacteria have fewer genes than an ox. This is unsurprising, because bacteria tend to dump any genetic material they're not using as a matter of course.
