"Cry...oh how I wished '23andMe' existed *before* I married my sister - and we dated for a long time before we found out!"
 
 
Can you even imagine the most remote chance of something like that occurring?! Worse than that would be finding out well over half the neighborhood is related to you.
Well, it happens, doncha know.
*I'm* pretty sure we even have members on this board who have wanted to come out and speak the truth about this...but I don't want to know who they are or why they didn't say anything when we were younger...ConfusedWink

I'm not sure what to make of the "52.4% Shared DNA" claim.
 
Heck, even chimpanzees share 98.8% of human DNA.
It raises the question what the other 47.6% is.  Shocked

Wait a minute - maybe chimps share 98.8% of YOUR DNA (how did you escape?)...but no - not mine.

ConfusedWOW!
 
My brother, the MensaLegalWolf is up at The Estate In The Swamp handling fambly issues and, as always, scaring the crap outta me. He's 6 years younger than me and we were just talking about '23andMe' when he says 'THAT isn't EVERY happening with him'. They keep your 'de-identified' DNA and YOU agree to it. He started citing means where a person could actually put their professional future at risk. He also says no matter what you read or what they say, DON'T YOU BELIEVE THEM!
All the hubbub, Bub, has me thinking even though they are publicly traded, the Mormons or Church of Scientology could swoop right in and gobble them up...and then it's all too late.

Betting there's a sperm bank located in that town.  There was a Doctor in the news a few years ago who replaced customers' orders with his own secretions.  I think they traced about 40 kids back to him...  Shocked

ConfusedI remember that - it was such a big deal that 'Law & Order' immediately made an episode based on it.
