will they take a semen sample or does it need to be blood or cheek swab?

Seems like you'd want a DNA UNmatching site for dating.

They asked for a blood, stool, and semen sample so I just gave them my underwear.

Our yes, let's all pair off into genetic cohorts and create even more unnecessary subspecies we pointlessly divide ourselves into.  As if race, religion, locality, culture, and economic differences weren't enough.

If anything, this is good for another three science fiction movies about DNA.

This is going to be the adult version of the compatibility test your school did back in the day. "Billy and I are 98% a match? Grody."

Could we breed humans like labradoodles?  If I were one would I be able to lick my nuts on my recliner?

If I want to know if my DNA is compatible with her face, I test it the old fashioned way.

It appears to cost $53/month for this dating site.  That seems awfully steep.

Ya, this sounds like utter BS. "2 markers". Sounds scienterrific.
...and the proof they even did the test?
People will believe any woo nonsense.
 
2014-07-23 05:24:14 PM  
First of all, this is "crap" science. There is no way, none, they can claim they can match you successfully with someone else through your DNA. What a load of horseshiat. I would imagine what happens is, you send in your spit, and they charge you 1k for the test, and your "match". Anyone stupid enough to fall for this obvious scam should lose their right to reproduce. And they can claim when your "match" fails, that you didn't try hard enough. Try going out to a bar, or ask a good friend if they know a nice person that they think you would get along with. Save your cash. Don't be a chump.

If this takes off they will create a new race of the super gullible who can afford $53/month. Now that's a list that could command a good price.

Nobody recommended him/her to watch the movie.  The quote did fit the theme of the thread and it was posted.  As a matter of fact, the hotlinked picture implies that this is not a joke or an attempt from farkingismybusiness to be funny.  It is just related to the comment from drjekel_mrhyde made about having terminally ill people have a meet place online and how awkward this would be.

From the article:
People with different, complementary versions of the serotonin and immune systems were most compatible, the company says.

They are matching people on certain genes being different, but in the correct way. Still bullshiat, but it's not matching people whose DNA is similar, it's matching people whose DNA is different.

People joke about inbred people in the South but the north has plenty of them. Just find yourself an Amish community. That there is what you call inbreeding.
