The Evolution of the Y-Chromosome in the Colbert Report

Though I like to try to keep up with scientific developments, and consider myself relatively literate (for a layman) in these matters, there are times when I am truly surprised at the fact that something I thought I basically understood turns out to be different and much more interesting than I previously realized.

So when David Page showed up at the Colbert Report to talk about the evolution of the Y-chromosome, I was in for a fascinating and entertaining surprise about the evolution of the sexes.

I wonder how Freud would have tried to spin this size difference with some ad hoc envy theory :)
