I Knew It

According to MSNBC, scientists recently discovered the so-called “skinny gene,” a DNA sequence responsible for the regulation of body fat. Some lucky folks (like my former roommate, who complained about his inability to gain weight) have it, and other unlucky folks (like, say, me and James Beard) don’t.

Awesome discovery for two reasons: firstly, this means I have yet another excuse for being overweight, and secondly, if scientists can identify the “Skinny Gene” then maybe they can finally put skinniness in a pill! Right guys?

But that doesn’t mean people should wait for a pill to cure obesity … That’s a long way off, even with the new research.
