OK, this is bad. Just as many wives are at their wits end with husbands who have turned to couch potatoes during the playoffs, scientists have found another species that made males obsolete. Spanish investigators have discovered that dragonflies are capable of parthenogenesis, asexual reproduction without fertilization by a male. While plenty of women are avid football fans, the announcement of this discovery during the playoffs can only be viewed as a direct threat to the male gender.
The discovery was made by Adolfo Cordero of University of Vigo in the Azores.
The group took larva samples of the Ishnura hastata species of dragonfly and were able to breed nine generations without males.
We have seen this evolution in other species, here. With procreation and fixing VCRs becoming possible without us, males are now as endangered as the Packers in the NFC championship. (I bet you thought there was no way I could take a butterfly scientific breakthrough in Spain and bring it back to the Bears/Packers game).
The meetings to phase out males has already begun . . .
