Genes

I loved watching the Sweden-Japan game. That 0.001% must be important:

You might need to flesh that out with a bit of context.

Using percentages in this case hides the reality of large numbers. The human genome is about 3 × 10 to the power of 9 base pairs. This basically means that about one base pair out of every 1,000 will be different between any two individuals. That's not small at all.

I hate it when posters make threads like this.

Nobody in their right mind is going to click on a random link like that without a clear indication of what it actually is.

Exactly, this nearly looks like AI generated clickbait.

Wait until Kiwisteve learns that he shares 50% of his DNA with a banana

Oh no. I was hoping to tweak your interest. Let me join the dots.

I found my reference as first hit when googling "Why is there a human genome when we are all genetically different". It shows that numbers can be misleading. Almost all the physical differences between the Japanese and Swedish players are down to genetics. It also helps explain why the genetic basis of so many things has yet to be determined. Further complicated by the fact that many traits in humans are due to to the interaction of several or many gene products.

The soccer match was also a great demonstration of how a different genetic make-up can still lead to very similar performance results.

And no, not 1 out of a 1000. 1 out of 100,000

No, the bananas are not that unlucky
