Probably you'd see a similar distribution, but shifted somewhat to the right. Although we have our share of stupid people making stupid comments here, head over to youtube, digg, or some other "wider audience" site and you'll find whole new levels of stupidity.

We recently upped the maximum 'genome size' and we think that the music is already benefiting from the change."

Larson, 18, of Long Beach, became one of the youngest people to scale the 29,035-foot peak, reaching the summit with a group that included her father, David Larson, 51, an anesthesiologist at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center. The honors graduate of Long Beach Polytechnic High School put off her start as a freshman at Stanford by a year to scale some of the world's highest mountains.
