Evolution of Red Hair and Possibility of 'extinction'?

Posted on August 11, 2008 at 1:49pm 3 Comments

REDHEADS are becoming rarer and could be extinct in 100 years, according to genetic scientists.

The current National Geographic magazine reports that less than two per cent of the world's population has natural red hair, created by a mutation in northern Europe thousands of years ago.

Global intermingling, which broadens the availability of possible partners, has reduced the chances of redheads meeting and producing little redheads of their own.

It takes only… Continue

Hey Lucy! How have you been??

Everything's good with me.

Yeah, I reckon that I know how that feels!

Yeah, I am currently suffering from a real lack of focus and motivation - getting back into a routine and (more importantly) would be good, as would actually being engaged in something productive. The money would be helpful, too. Very helpful.

Glasgow does sound like it should be good. I hope it all works out.

Yeah, it certainly is a long time to be waiting. Ah well.

Moving to Glasgow sounds cool. When are you going to be doing that?
Personally I've been doing more than enough 'chilling out recently' and would really like to have something to do!

Hi there! Well, I still don't have a definitive answer about that job, and I've not yet had any success finding anything else.

How are you getting on?
At 4:19pm on April 26, 2010, Andrew said…
Well good luck, I hope it works out. Would that PhD be at Glasgow as well?
At 10:07am on April 26, 2010, Andrew said…
Certainly makes sense. I imagine you want to get onto a PhD as soon as you can, so that you can get on with your life at some point....

That does seem a little harsh, getting turned down for voluntary work!

Glasgow is a great place, you're right there's lot's to do there. What's the course, and which of the several universities?

Thanks for wishing me luck. I'm not into surfing (suppose I could give it a shot) but the SCUBA diving around there (and the Orkney Islands) is pretty good. We'll see how it goes!

Hi. Things are, well, meh. At the moment I am trying to get a job (still!) and am waiting for my viva (still!) so that I can finally have my PhD out of the way, or at least know how much work I need to do to get it dealt with once and for all! I have actually got one interview at the end of the month, for a job in Thurso, and I've found another couple of positions to apply for.

Apart from that nothing has changed.

How about you? What's going on in your world? Did you end up moving to Glasgow, and where are you based now?

I did go to the atheist christmas thingy, it was brilliant. I went on a different night to the one they filmed, in a smaller venue, but it was still very enjoyable. A couple of friends and I made a bit of a day of it and also went to see Inherit the Wind performed at the Old Vic theatre, which was also very good.
