DeusMeh: if you're irish deep down you're probably actually frenchviking, spanish, danish, flemish.
habitual_masticator: would like a word.Coincidentally was just discussing "A Modest Proposal" with my son last night

Bondith: See? I told you I was special./ 3/16th special, 1/16th Lowland Scot, 3/4 Sassenach
Rawry: Lots of invasions should make for interesting genetics. It's no wonder the ancient history of Ireland was recorded in a book named "The History of Invasions".
jahova: No, no, no. Liberals told me that all people are the same genetically and there is not such thing as race. Since "reality has a liberal bias," I'm going with them on this one./sarcasm
perilsensitive: "In order to find his equal, an Irishman is forced to talk to God."
Rawry: habitual_masticator: DeusMeh: if you're irish deep down you're probably actually french, viking, spanish, danish, flemish.The stories say the original Irish were the Fir Bolg, tied to the historical Érainn or Iverni. This is the indigenous people. They were then invaded by the Milesian Irish who came from Spain and supposedly some from Egypt, usually understood to be the Goidelic. These two groups merged to what is called the Gaels. When you get down to it, these are the true Irish.The Vikings invaded many times and built cities (Dublin included), they contributed much to Irish culture and to a certain extent many of them can be called Irish today. Around 1200 the Normans invaded, leading to the fall of the last native High King of Ireland (Roderick "Rory" O'Connor) and the continued struggle over 800 years for freedom from Enlish Tyranny. These people will never be Irish and are most welcome to get the fark off my island.Lots of invasions should make for interesting genetics. It's no wonder the ancient history of Ireland was recorded in a book named "The History of Invasions".
mark12A: Say you've just dropped into parking orbit, you're looking for a nice isolated island remote enough to minimize interaction with the resident intelligent bipeds, but big enough to contain some of the mineral resources you need to acquire for repairs, and some of the landing party manage to party a little too hardy with the natives before you leave..../feels weird when staring at the night sky//Irish
deciusmaximus: I don't get it. They cataloged the DNA of a single individual and are making pronouncements about an entire ethnicity?This is not science.
RedEmily: I've got some Irish in me.
Sedatedbylife: RedEmily: I've got some Irish in me.That's what she said!*checks profile*Dammit!
Tyrone Biggums: Came for the Blazing Saddles pic, leaving satisfied.
ThereAre4Lights: Fun fact: 7 years ago the first full human DNA sequence was published. It took 13 years of research and cost $2.7 billion. This Irish genome took a little over a year to sequence and cost €30,000. (source: Irish Times)We're going to see some farking cool stuff in coming years.Kudos, subby. They liked your headline better than mine.
