Also horribly false, although in high school they will teach you that eye colour is determined by one allele pair, it is in fact controlled by 6. I have grey eyes, my parents both have dark blue eyes and my brother, hazel. I have inherited all 6 recessive genes from my parents, they both are likely to have 2 dominant 4 recessive and my brother inherited at least 3 dominant pairs.

I asked a similar question to my science teacher when I was 16, he answered that my mother probably cheated on my dad. Suffice to say I know this to be false. It wasn't until I studied more genetics with my degree that I found out about eye colour being controlled by 6 allele pairs.
