SevenizGud: From the comments section:Submitted by BradThe main point is that if you come from populations that did intermingle, you don't have to go very far to get to a point where it gets extremely unlikely that your set of ancestors doesn't overlap with all the other such people.Oh, so we're all related to the degree of 16th cousins or less, except when we aren't. Thanks for that useful information, Brad.
jjorsett: So what if we're related to everybody? Hating relatives is just as easy as hating complete strangers. Easier, if they come to dinner.
ladyfortuna: Since my dad was adopted, I'm actually kind of curious to find out if we have relatives on his side. However, since I don't want people trying to hit me up for money, I'm not THAT curious.
prjindigo: There are only 13 kinds of women and all of them either want cheesecake or pickles when they're pregnant.
bratface: I have two half brothers that are also my second/third? cousins! When my parents divorced my father married my mothers cousin! And no, I didn't grow up in Kentucky.
bill4935: bratface: I have two half brothers that are also my second/third? cousins! When my parents divorced my father married my mothers cousin! And no, I didn't grow up in Kentucky.Well, no. I mean, you can hardly call that growing. With genes like these, you'd be lucky to pass five feet in height.
jjohnny65: I read the article, it made my head hurt. Goodnight.
SevenizGud: [blogs.mirror.co.uk image 360x255]Tribe was unknown to the outside world from its founding about 28,000 years ago (based on Y chromosome diversity) until 1961, when they were discovered by South African silver prospectors.Sooooooo....no.
Mouser: Well, most of my ancestral stock supposedly emigrated from southern Germany back in the 1800s, so I assume that I am cousins to some degree with the entire population of Bavaria and the Rhineland. That said, I seriously doubt if I have any Japanese cousins unless you want to trace back to the caveman days.
