23 & Me (or other genetic testing shite)

Recommended Posts

So I got pressured into doing the 23 and me thing (like on South Park haha) by my girlfriend and my results are interesting as fuck:

European 58.6%


Northwestern European 25.7%
British & Irish 10.7%
French & German 2.4%
Broadly Northwestern European 12.7%

Southern European 17.3%
Sardinian 0.5%
Broadly Southern European 16.8%

Broadly European 15.6%

Middle Eastern & North African 27.8%

Middle Eastern 27.3%

Broadly Middle Eastern & North African 0.5%

South Asian 0.8%

Broadly South Asian 0.8%

East Asian & Native American < 0.1%

East Asian < 0.1%
Japanese < 0.1%
Broadly East Asian < 0.1%
 
 
Wasn't expecting any Japanese... or South or East Asian. Pretty interesting stuff. I didn't know Sardinians had different genetic makeup than Italians/other Southern Europeans.
 
Oh I also got 12.7% "Unassigned" - which I feel like is fucking bullshit & I should get 12.7% of my money back.
 
Has anyone else done this or any shite like it?

You order a kit and you spit into a little vial and send it to them and they'll mail you info about your ancestry based on your DNA makeup.

It's $99 for the genetic test by itself in the US... it looks like in the UK you can't buy the 2 tests as separate products (which is stupid). So it's a lot more expensive in the UK at £145 (almost double - but they charge $200 for both tests in the US). That's pretty irritating they only have the two tests grouped together though... Here's the link for the UK side of their business: https://www.23andme.com/en-gb/ancestry/

My dad either done this or done one similar, but his results are my results so...

Your Fatherline Haplogroup is I-S21825 I-S21825 - Chauci Your YDNA haplogroup, what tracks your paternal lineage, takes it name from the CHAUCI, an ancient German kindred described as barbarians by Roman commentators and historians. And it is rare in Britain and Ireland. Your haplogroup I-S21825 is one that is more or less confined to Northern Europe and is both very rare and relatively young, probably only 3,000 years old. It emerged among one of the Germanic tribes of mainland Europe, probably the ancestors of the Chauci who lived on the coast of the North Sea just east of the River Weser in what is now Northern Germany. It probably arrived in Britain with the so-called Anglo-Saxon invasions and settlements of the 4th to the 6th centuries AD. I-S21825 is very much a Northern European genetic marker although rarely found. It is carried by men in Northern Germany (2%), Southern England (2%), Scotland (0.7%) and Scandinavia (0.3%). Its closest genetic branch is an extremely rare one, seen only once in Switzerland, once in Prussia, and once in the Dolomites of Northern Italy. This perhaps traces the route taken by the ancestors of the S21825 group from the centre of Europe as they headed north.

His results aren't your at all because you have your mother's DNA, he does not.

Obviously...they're also only his dad's side as you can't go back I think it's more than 1 or 2 generations on the maternal side.

You sure? The South Asian info for me is from my mum's side - my great great great grandpa was Indian (or Pakistani, but it was all India then) on my mum's side.

It was the case for how my dad had the test, they could only go back so far on his mums side. I feel like they could go back on her dads side but not her mums side actually..

I'll look into this. Would be fascinated by it. We have done a lot of family tree work, and gone back quite far on one side of the family but hardly anywhere on another side.

Definitely something I'd be interested in doing just to see the results.

Judging by Twitter it mainly exists for white nationalists to pay Jews to prove they're not Jewish.

Sounds like a crafty way to get peoples DNA on file to me.. also sounds a lot like being down the plod shop without the bother of actually being escorted there under caution... so I have been told anyway.. 

All the good spit will be kept and shot into space to preserve mankind etc.. all the rubbish will be left on the windowsill to evaporate..

Pretty close xD It's just been announced that the company will be sharing its 5 Million Clients' Genetic Data with GlaxoSmithKline in order to develop "novel treatments and cures based on genetic insights from the consented 23andMe community".

I have not personally, as I think that it's weird that people are willing to send their DNA off to a lab to be tested and most certainly...stored. 

However, we have done a lot of work in the family on our family tree, and I a few years ago my father submitted his DNA to ancestry.com -The results here - 

Great Britain - 71%
Europe West - 12%
Ireland/Scotland/Wales - 10%
Europe East - 3%
Iberian Peninusla - 2%
Europe South - 1%
Native American - <1%

I don't know if you are familiar with the tv show Red Dwarf at all.. but in one episode titled 'Officer Rimmer' they stumble on a ship that has no crew, It stores the DNA of the crew and only prints them off if the ship is in danger.. Rimmer  uses it to create loads of versions of himself and heaps untold misery upon the rest of the crew, Lister ( the last human left alive ) decides to try and do something about it and finds out his DNA is stored in there as well... He then remembers that he once sold his DNA back on earth and that there could be hundreds of clones of him manning call centers across the known universe... 

Could you imagine having the technology in the future to clone another version of you and you having no say in it whatsoever because you waived your rights on a £5 home kit..

Can't imagine a worse fate than that xD

If they end up cloning me for future generations to enjoy, I've done the world a favour.

I'm pretty certain you'd love Red Dwarf. Witty, relatable storylines set in a fantasy world, with plenty of stupidity for good measure. Hugely underrated.

--------

I'd love to do this test; both sides of my peasant Slavic family just so happen to come from an area of land that has been pillaged and conquered by, well, pretty much everyone from the Mongols, to the Swedes, to the Hungarians, in some way or another.

Oh, and my English grandmother had some Liverpudlian in her family history - that's surely the most terrible one of the lot... :'(

This is the episode mentioned... 

https://www3.1movies.se/series/red-dwarf-season-11/26320/34993-watch-online-free.html

Just a bit of background on Everyone... 

Rimmer

Red Dwarf. Rimmer (Chris Barrie). Copyright: Grant Naylor Productions / BBC.

Rimmer was a complete and total failure in life and death. He was 2nd Technician on Red Dwarf though he always wanted to be an officer. However after sitting and failing his Asto-navigation exam on no less than 13 occasions and doing the same with his engineering exam 11 times it was pretty clear it was not meant to be. The final blow came when he was killed in the radiation leak that wiped out Red Dwarf as a consequence of his own failure to seal a drive plate. After his death he was brought back as a hologram to keep Lister sane.

As well as a failure at his career, he has been a failure in friendships and relationships. He has had only one sexual encounter, that was with the ship's boxing champion Yvonne McGruder and even then she had concussion. His only real friend has been Inflatable Rachel and she's now got a puncture.

Rimmer's unpopularity is down to the simple fact that he's a total Smeghead. His interests include Hammond Organ music, Morris Dancing and 20th Century telegraph poles. As for his family, his father hated him and despite Arnold's attempts to make him proud of him he never once said "Well Done" to him. His mother also hated him and had no time for idiots like Arnold, she even called him 'Rimmer'. His brothers were smart, handsome, brave and intelligent and they bullied Arnold mercilessly. No wonder Rimmer turned out as he did, at least that's what he always says...

Lister

Red Dwarf. Lister (Craig Charles). Copyright: Grant Naylor Productions / BBC.

Dave Lister is the last human being alive, following a radiation leak that wiped out Red Dwarf. He survived due to being in stasis (deep freeze) for smuggling a cat on board. Lister is a complete and total slob. He likes nothing better than to sit around eating Vindaloo and drinking lager all day.

Lister was found under a pool table in a box with the word Ouroboros on it (he thought for years it was 'Our Rob' or 'Ross' badly spelled). He grew up in Liverpool where he got involved with acts such as scrumping for cars and stealing hotel rooms. He lost his virginity to Michelle Fisher at the age of 12.

After leaving his job of 10 years in supermarket because he didn't want to get tied down to a career, he ended up aboard Red Dwarf as a lowly 3rd Technician. Whilst on board, he met Navigation officer Kristine Kochanski and had a dream of them having a farm on Fiji and opening a chain of hot dog and doughnut diners. Alas, this dream was cut short when she was killed in the radiation leak and ended up 3 million years into deep space.

After the accident, Lister experienced things he never imagined were possible. He played pool with planets, visited parallel universes, gave birth to twins, went to a backwards version of Earth, travelled in time, met Hitler, married a GELF (against his will) and, most amazingly, he once tasted an edible Pot Noodle.

Cat

Red Dwarf. Cat (Danny John-Jules). Copyright: Grant Naylor Productions / BBC.

Cat evolved from Lister's pet cat Frankenstein who was safely sealed in the hold during the radiation leak aboard Red Dwarf. Cat is a self-obsessed, vain and superficial character (he considers these to be his best features). He loves nothing better than sleeping, eating and looking good. Whilst he likes most of his crewmates he would still gladly let them die if saving them meant interrupting his lunch of one of his naps (of which he must have 9 or 10 so as to have enough energy for his main snooze).

He is also very much against doing the W word, or as most people know it, "work" (He has a note from his Mummy, or so he claims).

As the Cat's vanity knows no bounds, it's hardly surprising that he was utterly disgusted when, during their encounter with the Despair Squid, a group hallucination led the crew to believe Cat was really a no-style geek who wore ironed flares, a nylon shirt, a cardigan and anorak, carried a Thermos and lunch box and had bucked teeth that druids could use as a place of worship. Worse still, his name was Duane Dibbley. Thankfully for the Cat, it turned out to be a hallucination... though it did almost drive him to suicide because, as he pointed out, "superficial" is his middle name.

Kryten (Series 3-12)

Red Dwarf. Kryten (Robert Llewellyn). Copyright: Grant Naylor Productions / BBC.

Kryten is a series 4000 Service Mechanoid originally posted to the SS Nova 5. Sadly the ship crashed killing all the crew... though it took Kryten a few centuries to realise this. He was eventually rescued by Lister & Co and taken aboard Red Dwarf.

Despite the fact that Kryten was quite happy obediently completing the tasks Rimmer gave him, Lister was determined to break his programming. The result was that Kryten rebelled against Rimmer and left on Lister's space bike, only to fly straight into an asteroid. Lister later repaired him but he was never the same again.

With Lister's help Kryten learnt to lie, cheat, and develop emotions of his own - much to Rimmer's annoyance, because not only did Kryten have more knowledge in Space Corp Procedure than him but he also commanded more respect from Lister and Cat. The droid originally designed to clean toilets now has a position of authority and respect.

Kryten's development continued over the years and the arrival of Kochanski caused new emotions to surface. Those of anger, resentment and jealousy towards the new crew member whom he was convinced would lure his beloved Mr Lister away with all her "in and out bits". Not only that but she put the salad cream in the cupboard and her pants in her socks draw.

Personally love it... Been watching it from the beginning when I was bored one night and flicking channels I stumbled across it by accident.. Been following it ever since, It's been great watching the characters develop and there have been some great episodes along the way.. Some of them are very old now but 'Legion' for example was a right laugh... 'Better than Life' 'Body Swap' & 'Dimension Jump' where there is a really cool version of Rimmer are just a few that stood out for me.. 'Parallel Universe' where they meet their female equivalents & 'Back to Reality' were also standouts from earlier seasons... 

Just a rag tag crew thrown together mooching about space getting up to all kinds of stuff... Hope you enjoy it!
