I'd heard of this before, but what I didn't realize is that the "extra" cone could muck up the cone count for her sons.

Most of them inherit two red or two green cones along with the standard blue cone, making it impossible for them to distinguish between red and green peppers, or tell how well-done a steak is, or pick out matching clothes.
A strange case of anti-inheritance where the "gift" of the mother provokes a "curse" for the son.

Maybe this also explains the terrible "Didn't you notice something different?" question. A subtle shift in the secondary red frequencies of the hair - no we really don't stand a chance.

I do not see what the big deal is about multi-tasking? Why I my self multi-task all the time. I can walk and breathe, sit and type, sometimes I even walk, breathe and talk all at the same time, no big deal.....

Yup, and add to that I can drink beer AND watch the Rugby, Grand Prix, Footy, Cricket (choose as appropriate) at the same time, NO PROBLEM.

And for real multi-tasking I can sup beer, watch Footy AND Cricket at the same time by adding the extra task of operating the TV remote control. How much more can you ask?
