This talk is all about DNA and you'd better cope with it. Science isn't the art of making things up so that math and biology classes are justified. Rather science is all about observing reproducible phenomena in the world. DNA is something we now know lots about. You'd be surprised how knowing a little bit more about DNA explains all sorts of things you see everyday. For example, can you really clone yourself or what are the odds that you'll get convicted for a crime your evil twin committed? Perhaps more practically, why do dog lovers pay for pet DNA testing and why does every apple look exactly the same at the grocery store? You'll be glad that you listened to this talk the next time your friend, or the cops, ask you for a DNA test.
