My final exam in history took me a whole 20 minutes and I got a 112/100 was packing my stuff up just as everyone was sitting down

I realize my Wisdom Score is lacking, but my "read and regurgitate" abilities are solid

If I can just manage to keep myself not self-destructive for long enough to finish a degree

that's interesting. is this the kit you used? https://www.amazon.com/AncestryDNA-G.../dp/B00TRLVKW0

did it give you data about other ppl who have done it and might be relatives?

if it was $50 i'd probably do it

yeah that's the one. It was my birthday gift from my mom. I got 600+ pages of people I am probably related to, but only 2 results which were likely 2nd cousins or closer. Both are using usernames and not their real names, but my guess is they are people I know already. By the end of the 1st page it is already showing results for 4th-6th cousins

according to the republican party the only thing on your list that's white is "Scandinvian" and Irish.

genetic tests like that are kind of a scam. Almost like astrology. They sell the impression that by correlating a tiny number of genetic markers with geography it can tell you something about yourself.

but it really doesn't. it doesn't tell you about how you look or even your immediate ancestors. If anything all it shows is how incredibly close we all are genetically.

So season 2 of "Sense8" is out now on Netfix. Anybody watching it?

There are plenty of reasons to not like this show. Maybe it's just my personal experience of feelling completely disconnected from any and all people, but I find the show and it's conceipt incredibly compelling. It's a romantic philosophical perspective from which to tell a story. What could be more intimate than sharing every one of your thoughts with 7 other people who are also incredibly interesting and amazing and inherrently nice as well.

What you don't yet see on the show is a group of people psychically linked who are all evil maniacs who spread negativity and hatred to each other.

thanks for the heads-up. i've been thinking about taking one of these tests for a hot minute, but now i can let go of the idea.

do you understand how genetics works/how DNA is passed?

I mean if you had said most people don't understand what these tests show I would maybe agree, but your comparison to astrology makes me think you might not understand how genes are passed

What I'm saying is that people read all manner of pseudo scientific nonsense onto those tests. Specifically because people don't understand that we we all share a common ancestor. I had a guy tell me they're 20% black because of the results of one of these tests. This is a white guy with ginger hair and a Scottish last name. I didn't even try to explain that "black" and race is a social construct created and perpetuated without any basis in genetics.

Also, these tests don't actually sequence your genome. They look at a very small chromasomal section and then extrapolate.
