  1. All true !! Ginger too.
    Surgeons know this that a higher dose of Anesthetic is required to put a ginger down to sleep 😀
    My formal dentists all didn't know that. They were all surprised.
    There is in fact a whole lot more to tell about gingers: like other brain-functions, other digestion, high sensitive, ….

  2. What about black gingers? There are some with enough melanin to be brown and others are really light by POC standards. I'm just curious cuz usually we're adapted for sun light but gingers aren't so what about the ones black gingers in the middle

  3. The undeniable factual truth about Red heads, especially Gingers are the hottest, sexiest most intelligent people on the planet

  4. Great job guys! lol refreshingly comedic and intellectually stimulating. Absolutely love the content. Like I said before… Awesome Job guys thanks to all involved as I appreciate it very much. Once again thank you and you can keep more of this up! Like. Thumbs up!

  5. It shouldn't bother me, but as you can guess it does. When I hear scientists say mutated or mutant I ask myself what is normal for it to be mutated from.
    Lactose intolerant people are viewed as having something wrong, when our ancestors didn't drink milk after childhood, because they couldn't. Everyone was lactose intolerant after childhood, it was normal & those who could drink milk were mutants, or lactose- tolerant. mutated genes 'sounds' judgemental to me

  6. Here's something why are gingers skinnier than the other colours?

  7. My mom redheaded but my dad had black. i have brown hair, is my pain tolerance lowered because my mom's a redhead?
