SJ : It is entirely possible, in view of the experience of recent genomes
sequenced, and the major physical and mental differences between humans
and chimps, that when the whole human and chimp genomes are fully
sequenced that humans will have many novel genes.

Cool, so what I say? Of course there are differences, there is quite a period of time since we shared a common ancestor...
