    no its true. theres alot of similarity between pigs and humans hence why the pig's heart can be used in transplants
    Genetically they are probably just as similar to us as most other higher mammals.

    Analysis of the number of amino acid differences in haemoglobin show that the Rhesus Monkey is the most closely related extant organism to humans (only 8 differences in AA sequence). Although they are closely related to us, it doesn't mean we evolved from them....we just shared a common ancestor.

    Sorry peeps, you can tell i've just been reading my biology books lol!

    the level of intelligence is similar.
    the level of intelligence of a pig is not similar to that of a human. the reason a pigs heart can be used in a transplant is because an average 70-ish kg pig has the same-sized heart as an average human, with the same pumping capacity.

    the recipient still has to be on anti-rejection drugs for their immune system until they die.

    Yup there are several secretions that are released during orgasm that make the normally highly acidic conditions of the vagina more favourable to sperm. Some of these secretions also thin the mucus that lines the vagina and cervical opening to allow easier passage of sperm.
    Nah, tis cyclical hormones doing that (changing cervical secretions). The vagina's not hugely acidic, pH~5 I think, but the sperm don't like this much, it makes them coagulate and very few actually get any further. At some point I could drag out my notes on this and explain it highly clinically but I can't be bothered right now. I don't know how long pig orgasms are but apparently a wild boar can produce up to 500ml of semen at once :eek:
