Worst. Hoax. Ever! Genochoice??
http://www.genochoice.com /

Absolutely ridiculous. Open up the Genochoice "chooser" and you will see what I mean. "Place your left thumb on the blinking oval, and click 'SCAN!'"

By the way, here are my and "my partner's" "statistics":

Behavioral Defects (for you and your child):
98% Homosexuality
85% Novelty-seeking
69% ADD
28% Schizophrenia
20% Anxiety
10% Addiction Susceptibility
5% Stamina Impairment
2% Hypernasality

Susceptibility to Disease (for you and your child):
89% Premature Baldness/Alopecia
24% Sickle Cell Disease
23% Down's Syndrome
22% Tay-Sachs Disease
17% Seizures
15% Thalassemia
10% Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease
8% Lesch-Nyhan Syndrome
7% Fragile X Syndrome
6% a-l-antritrypsin Deficiency

I don't think there's one person in the world who has "susceptibility levels" anywhere near that, particularly for that many diseases.

These hoaxsters have got several other entertaining "programs" (all part of a mythical "RYT Hospital"):

Nanodocs: http://www.rythospital.com/nanodocs /
Male Pregnancy: http://www.malepregnancy.com /
Clyven - The World's First Transgenic Mouse with Human Intelligence (I kid you not): http://www.rythospital.com/clyven /

The sad thing is, a friend of mine actually believed the Male Pregnancy link was true. It's so pathetic how easily flashy design will manipulate people :eyes:

I'm certain it's just a very clever joke-site... :hi:

3. It's just a joke...

It's just sci-fi futuristic parody stuff, I'm pretty sure...
