(PNS reporting from BOSTON) Geneticists at Boston University have discovered the gene in men that gives them the strength, stamina and expertise to take out the trash.
According to an article published Monday in the journal Science, the gene is located near other genetic material that corresponds to mens’ inherent superior ability to mow the lawn and open tight jar lids.
“This discovery is a breakthrough answer to the eternal question of how men and women relate to each other,” according to Assistant Professor of Genetics Esperanza Acevedo, the lead researcher.
“If we can answer the question of why it always feels right for men to take out the trash, perhaps we can make a contribution to the relationships of couples all over the world.”
One of the subjects of the study, area HVAC contractor Alvaro Ruiz, said while he actually didn’t like taking out the trash, since his wife Judy always expects him to — and science, “Why fight it?”
“I just feel like this study validates Judy’s instincts and in the future I will be better about remembering trash night and trying not to argue about it with her,” he told PNS.
