comment Is there such thing as “half-life” of dopamine?
If I'm reading this correctly, then Dopamine is randomly extracted from receptors, right?

Interesting. Does this mean that upon release, dopamine has 200ms to either bind to a receptor or be reabsorbed?

comment What is the armpit hair for?
Hair has been used for defense, think of lions, horses and roman centurion helmets. It's hard to cut or bite through. I'm not an expert, but it may be that beards, pubic and underarm hair cover exposed parts of the body that have vital arteries under the skin(neck, armpit and groin).

Thanks for an informative answer! It seems that common sense is not always true when evolution is concerned. Where do I sign up for trendy genes? ;)
