It’s just LIKE HIM!
Bad habits are something that accompanies each of us in life. They distinguish us from others, define and characterize our personality and, paradoxically, also unite us. We wish to inherit and pass on the best qualities, but the older we get, the clearer it becomes how many unwanted similarities our parents have left in us, just as we have left in our children. Thus, our society consists not only of families that are connected by genetic roots, but also of other families, families of so-called distant relatives. That’s what we often call individuals who are proud of some of the bad habits we ourselves have.
On the occasion of the 200th birthday of the founder of genetics, Gregor Johann Mendel, we offer you a unique chance to find and get to know „relatives“ that you may not have known about. All you have to do is register your bad habits in the National Collection of Bad Habits – the largest and only one in the world!
And what’s next?
In July of 2023, we will end a year of gathering bad habits and start sorting them into Mendel’s Table of Bad Habits, which will become the largest online database of bad habits in the world in July of 2024. In the future, it will serve not only as a basic guidepost you’ll be able to keep expanding and supplementing, but also as a platform where you can search for ‘distant relatives.’
And that’s not all!
We’d originally planned to collect 10,000 bad habits, but over time other surprising fields opened up before us, so today we have almost 30,000. The amount and variety of the material has exceeded our original expectations by a great margin, so we decided to create an ENCYCLOPEDIA OF BAD HABITS, which will also serve as a thank you to everyone who has been involved in the project in any way.
Můžete se na ni začít těšit, vyjde už brzy!
Our definition of a bad habit:
A bad habit is a behavior of a person or a group of people, which is repeated and annoying. A bad habit might be seen differently by each person – for instance, someone is bothered by regular housecleaning and somebody appreciates it.
