    Cool Whiter than Wonderbread!

    I just thought it was interesting and wanted to share: I got my genetic profile back from 23andMe, and it turns out that I'm whiter than Wonderbread. LOL. (Sadly, no hybrid vigor for me).

    74% SE European
    26% NW European
    00% African
    00% Ashkenazi Jew
    00% Native American
    00% Near Eastern
    00% East Asian
    00% South Asian

    Sh-t. I'm whiter than f-ck. Even my parents are more mixed than me. Both of them have about 6% Ashkenazi Jew in them, and my Dad has a touch of sub-Saharan African in him (less than 1%). Sadly, it seems by coincidence, I got none of those genes... no wonder I suck at sports and quantum physics...

    My specific breakdown, about 2/3rds Greek, 1/3rd Romanian, with a small touch of Balkan Slav. Hmm, I never knew I had Romanian blood. My Mom's ancestors came from Ottoman Wallachia, which is in modern Romania, but at the time it was governed by Greek aristocracy; I guess one of the ladies had a secret tryst with a plebeian Romanian.

    I'm going to go friend Uncle Ruckus (no relation) on Facebook now. I'm also considering joining Stormfront now that I know I'm "pure Aryan". /sarcasm

    Much more noteworthy, I'm not a carrier for any of the genetic diseases common in America (sickle-cell anemia, cystic fibrosis, etc.). So even if my wife is a carrier, our kids can't possibly get these diseases.

    I am genetically prone to type II diabetes, atrial fibrillation, and age related macular degeneration though. But hey, no Alzheimer's thankfully!

    Anyone else get their genetic profile done yet?

    Nope.

    We have two copies of every gene in our genome (one from each parent). By pure coincidence, I got all the "white" genes from both, and none of the Jewish or African genes.

    Consider this:

    White White White White
    White White Jewish White
    White White White White
    White White White White
    White Black White White
    Jewish White White White

    Pick any two, at random, from every row. It is unlikely, but not impossible to end up with all "white white". Remember we are only considering the very few genes that are unique to certain races. The vast majority of all genes are found in all human populations.

    Very interesting. Maybe I'll have to get a sample from my biological dad before he keels over.

    Sounds strangely like you'd prefer to "get a sample" of sufficient size to make him "keel over".
    Ranked No. #1 in initial quality

    Idiots, simply by being idiots, seem capable of achieving randomly bad things that are beyond the imaginings of sensible people.

    LOL. Nope, he certainly is. I was a tiny bit worried as they say that up to 1 in 10 of all babies could be mixed up by the hospitals or the result of infidelity!
