Si quieres saber qué aspecto tendrá tu cara cuando seas mayor, solo tienes que fijarte en cómo es la cara de tus abuelos paternos, lo que demuestra que tus genes son más importantes de lo que parece en este aspecto.

El autor explica que la idea le vino cuando estando con su familia se percató de que los jóvenes se parecían siempre más a sus abuelos paternos. Entonces quiso hacer el experimento y este es el resultado.
