Genetics


    I have no doubt I'm an innately ill tempered, bad mannered, and thoroughly disgruntled member of my species.  All of them vices I am convinced were written into the genetic codes I inherited, which because I have blotch and redness I am content to blame upon Vikings.  

    But it strikes me that Vikings, because they appear to have spent most of their non-drinking hours aboard open boats in the gales of the North Sea, would have developed a tolerance for windiness. Classically enough the sole useful element of the Viking within my genetic make up is absent.
