Quoted from Slashdot: “A December 6th article in Nature explores the relationship between a specific gene and those of us prone to repeatedly making the same mistakes. From the article: “Drug addicts, alcoholics and compulsive gamblers are known to be more likely than other people to have this genetic mutation …” The gene results in the development of fewer D2 receptors in the brain, a condition which the study has shown leads to a lessened ability to learn from experience.”

Your flaws are finally your family’s fault.
