Apparently humans share 50% of their genome with bananas.
Shouldn't the quote be "to lay down his life for two bananas"? ;)
More seriously: The genome of different humans is extremely similar.
So shouldn't be r much higher than 0,5 for siblings? More like 99.5?
Wouldn't this make altruism inevitable?
Anyway, great article!
