The test revealed the student's father was not the uneducated alcoholic married to his mother -- but a doctor.

Or that the commercial enterprise offering discounts for bulk business with a need for fast turnaround mixed up a couple of specimens.

They use a cotton swab to get a specimen from inside their cheek, then mail it to the Mountain View company 23andMe for processing.


So I've been considering buying a genetic test for entertainment purposes some day when I have a little cash burning a hole in my pocket. I'd looked at some other company's website, a company that offered a range of tests at a bunch of different price points. Health data wasn't included, but ancestral stuff seemed like it could be pretty comprehensive if you wanted to pay more.

23andme sure seems affordable in comparison -- Would anyone in here who's looked at these services care to give a thumbnail comparison/review? Thanks...

Thanks to the FARK thread a while back about why, in rare cases, two parents with O+ blood can have a child with A+ blood, a family mystery has been solved. Thanks (other thread's) subby!

Yeah, it's possible the mother had an affair, or it was a secret adoption, or a mistake with the blood typing, but all three theories were really unlikely. The child was a spitting image of the paternal grandmother, and all blood types were repeatedly tested.

What about that sperm bank in Texas where it turned out the doctor was substituting his own product, and there were about 300 kids he had fathered?

It was actually Fairfax county, VA. Cecil Jacobson, arrested in 1992. Claims have been made for up to 75 kids, but only around 15 proven. Some doc in Britain is the one with 600.

LOL...weird. I lived overseas during the late 80s and early 90s, so missed this.
