EYE see ...

So this totally random post is baised on an article I happened upon. It mentioned something about green eyes being a genetic mutation. Having green eyes myself and never having heard that (and being a complete nerd) I had to know more. This is what WIKI has to say about it:

Green eyes
The color most unusual, only 1-2% of the the world population have true green eyes. Green eyes are the product of moderate amounts of melanin. According to some researchers, green eyes are the result of mutations that change the melanin structure.
Green eyes are most common in
Europe and to a lesser extent in the Middle East, Northern parts of India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. 88% of the Icelandic population have either green or blue eye color.

So only 1-2% of the world ... pretty crazy. CLICK HERE for more interesting eye info.
