>you beat thousands of sperm in a race to reach an egg
>they all died and you survived
Yfw we are all literally Chad
This argument is so stupid.
Do you really think that a different sperm would not be "you". It would have exactly the same environment, and the difference in genes would be too small to be meaningful.
There was not much chance of "you" not existing
That's ridiculous, lmao every sperm is different why do you think brothers and sisters not only look different but have different personalities? If another sperm beat you to the egg you would simply not exist.
You want to parrot back to me some more vague platitudes of meiotic divisions to prove you don't know about what you're talking about?
Crossing over occurs twice during spermatogenesis, usually on sequences of homologues that don't produce distinguishably different phenotypic variation.
More spermatids turn out virtually the same than you think.
Are you sure about that? Or did the sperm chads play a joke on you?
Two sperm (or eggs) from the same person are not the same at all. There are 23 human chromosomes, and you have two of each, one from your mom and one from your dad. One of the steps in gamete (sperm or egg) production is to divide those pairs up, so each gamete ends up with just one set. That way when egg and sperm combine, the embryo has two of each again like normal.
During this division, the chromosomes are randomly assorted with respect to which parent they came from. That is, say sperm A got your dad's chromosome 1 and sperm B got your mom's chromosome 1. Chromosome 2 isn't affected by that, and can go either way. So the chances that two sperm have the same chromosome 1 (say, both from your dad) is 50%. The chances that two sperm have all the same chromosomes (1-both mom 2-both dad 3-both dad etc) is 0.523 , or about 0.000000119%.
Not to mention there's another process called crossing over that occurs. During the division that separates the pairs of chromosomes, they line up next to each other. When this happens, sometimes parts of the chromosomes will overlap and switch, like this. When that happens, you end up with two entirely new, unique chromosomes. This is relatively common, but where exactly the crossing over occurs (and how many times per pair) is largely by chance, so even if two gametes both get your dad's chromosome 1 (with a little bit of mom's from crossing over) the crossed-over parts won't be the same, so the two gametes won't be identical.
>Kek, so in the end the sperm cell that wins cucks the rest of them.
>tfw a virgin cucks you so hard you don't live
Sperm Chad plays jokes on you, later he dies from you.
That's not how impregnation works. All the other sperm help wear down the barrier on the egg, eventually to the point where one passes through, even though they all worked on it.
