That’s a lot of Bull

Cows were domesticated over 10,000 years ago according to DNA studies.  But are DNA tests what they are cracke dup to be?  We checked into some tests.

There are supposedly 12 companies that compete for your spit.  Send them a vial of your drool and they’ll send you a report about where you came from and from whom.  We wanted to know how they do that but didn’t know who to send our spit to.  So we went to an expert and read all about it https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/how-accurate-are-online-dna-tests/.  

An interesting read and we’ll be keeping our spit until the knowledge concerning DNA improves.  

Deja moo! That feelin you’ve heard that bull before.  

It’s all Clover

The chance of finding a four leaf clover are slim.  Supposedly, the statistics show about 1 in 10,000 which is, relatively, better than winning most lotteries.  We thought we’d even up the odds to find our own four leaf clover.

Between 1913 and 1917, Edmund S. Conklin handed out a questionnaire asking if people believed 4 leaf clover is lucky.  A little over ¼ of college students believed Four Leaf Clovers are lucky which makes this superstition among the top two superstitions.

In 2008, a Korean team developed Jeju Lucky-1; a strain of clover that produces 4 leaves 60 percent of the time.  Our lucky has improved.  We can now have four leaf clover 60 percent of the time.  Our cow was pleased as well.
