If you were hosting a dinner party and could invite 5 celebrities or people of note, who would you invite, and what would be on the menu? And what do you think the conversation would go like? (You can use a time machine, if that helps.)
Upon watching two full seasons of The Tudors, and having read the many books I have on them, my answer to my own question would be this: I would invite Henry VIII, two of the world's top geneticists, and two of the world's top fertility experts. And I would have these brilliant minds explain to Henry VIII how a son or daughter comes to be, and which parent is responsible for the sex of the child. And then let him think about that. Without supper.
