Interesting Fact # 1198 - Genetics

The Pinot Noir grape, used to make some excellent red wines, has about 30,000 genes in its DNA.

(That's more than the human genome, which contains 20,000 to 25,000 genes. I do hope they never prove a link between intelligence and the number of genes, otherwise I have broken my own cardinal rule - never eat anything that might be more intelligent than you are.)
