I was sorta planning on doing one of these DNA tests eventually, but after RTFA, I'm a little afraid my racist MAGA M-I-L will hate me even more... so yea, I'm now for sure doing one, and I will also frame the results and ship it overnight to her as a Christmas gift.

Didn't I see a headline somewhere recently that said a lot of these DNA tests were not very accurate?

Also, really? REALLY? This nation is so f*cking racist that if you have 1 drop of impurity, you are not welcome? Seriously?

I wish everyone had a DNA reveal that showed this. Especially Bannon, Hannity, Limbaugh and Trump and the rest of the "We wish we were special so bigly that we make sh*t up to appear special" cabal.

The funny part is the DNA test is probably picking up that Feria is Italian. Lots of Italians have Greek ancestry, and there was a lot of intermixing from around the Mediterranean - including West Asia, ie "The Middle East."

I should add that my mom took one of those and she got like 13% West Asian (meaning I'm like 7.5% "West Asian," which really means crazy Sicilian). I bet more than half of those Neanderthals would show up THE EXACT SAME WAY, meaning this is all over nothing. But stupid is as stupid does. And stupid tends to attack people based off of perceived ethnic differences.

Really?  Okay, now I've got a conundrum.  I'm flummoxed, if you will.

My great-grandfather was 50 per cent blackfeet indian.  So, I have always assumed I'm 6.25 per cent native.  Am I more or less than 6.25%?

Okay, imagine a half-gallon of Neopolitan ice cream.

If you slice it carefully across all three flavors, everyone gets an equal amount of all three, right?

But DNA just dives right on in with the scoop and grabs some of everything but not in perfect proportions. And some members of the family will end up with more strawberry than others, etc.

A Jew, an Irishman, and an Italian were arguing about Jesus.

The Jew said "Jesus was a Jew, because his mom thought he was God."
The Italian said "Jesus was an Italian, because he thought his mom was God."
The Irishman said "No, Jesus was an Irishman, because he was unemployed in the building trades."

Worst ice cream ever.  Everyone goes right for the chocolate, leaving the bland vanilla-less vanilla and the ice crystally strawberry.

You are 6.25% Blackfeet assuming no one else on the tree had any Blackfeet lineage
-but-
your DNA is still 99.999999999% like mine and the guy in the article.

Other than the math error, explain.
In these tests you are 50% of each parent, 25% of each grandparent, 12.5% of each great grand parent.
13% is what could show up with a single West Asian great grand parent for your mother and around 6-7% in you.

You (can) call me Habib!

It is extremely complicated. Every person has two copies of each gene, one from each parent. Not all kids get the same gene from each parent, complicating factors (thus making them human children, and not spores). But on the whole, if one of your parents is 25% African, you're not going to end up with 75% African ancestry. Or 1% African ancestry.

Plus, different genes express themselves differently when paired with a different copy from the same parent, ect ect ect. Yeesh. It was an average. A bad one at that.

That is a bit less than 1 out of seven. Which is an odd number. So is 13 in case you are wondering about this math stuff but afraid to ask math questions.

Seven is a very interesting number. Some consider it lucky. It obsesses many people and has a wide cultural function.

But it is when you divide by seven that it gets interesting. Each of the results is a repeating number with the same six digits repeating, although in different orders. The digits are 1, 2, 4, 5, 7 and 8. Never 0, 5, 3 or 9.

0.142857 all repeating or variants. Try it. Try it with any number divided by seven.

Try it with 51/7.
