In the light of the recent threads about kids I thought I'd bump this for those that may have missed it.

its good news.. but I aint having no more kids.. not unless I could 'tweak' those genes a little more and make sure the baby is a boy, has Valentino Rossi's skill with motorcycles, Mike Tysons boxing skills, Slashes Guitar playing skills, is 6ft 2, an xbox expert, and has his dads great looks (obviously).

What a great find, thank you for posting......are the regional groups made aware of this type of recent information....or like me do they have to be in the right place at the right time?
