You: "The Kid Is Not My Son." Study: 70% Of The Time, It Is.

A University of Oklahoma researcher is publishing a study about contested paternity results in the Summer issue of Current Anthropology. The findings show that in more than 70% of the cases where paternity is enough in doubt to land in court, the guy contesting is, in fact, the dad.

So, um, congratulations, guys. And to the 29.8% denying they're the dad who, in fact, aren't, congratulations to you, too. Why not spend a bit of that walkin' around money you just saved on some condoms, eh?
