Sorry just seeing this, but DD gave a better summary than I could do. Yeah, you can't get the pure ephedrine HCL anymore.

That is a very interesting list of books especially as framed in the context of relevant knowledge. As you note, the issue is what constitutes relevant.

Of course they are....we're all human! The human nucleotide bases are adenine (A), cytosine (C), guanine (G) and thymine (T).

The genes depend on the sequence of the base pairs, which actually code for proteins. If we were to...

I'm certain that the 99.9% figure comes from base sequences. If it was just a question of the nucleotide bases themselves, the figure would be 100%, since all life on earth use the same 4 nucleotides in their DNA. (Actually, I think that some viruses have DNA with Uracil replacing Thymine, if I recall correctly.)
