WordyGrrl: Interesting article. Brings up the question of how much privacy can we really have when bits of DNA just fall off of us naturally, or get discarded on a used napkin.


Hmm. I may have to change my masturbation habits.

Actually, scratch that. I took a sample of an anonymous person on battle.net. Based on this "data", I predict that they're male and korean.

Not a lot of detail in that DNA model: gender, eye colour, maternal race.

By that measure, I am a British male with brown eyes. So I did a Google for images of British Males with Brown Eyes. Apart from that guy who played James Bond and some porn stars, a couple of schmucks and a lot of pictures of dragon flies for some reason, there was nobody who looked much like me.

Just kidding. He's a Neanderthal.
Not even the same species as I am.

Kinda cute for a cave man, though.
He could star in a couple of movies.
A Hell of a lot less scary than Carrot Top.

I thought this would be way more cool. But it's just someone who figured out the sex, eye color and race and created some random face based on that. Hell, I can do that by sampling starcraft handles.
