I'm looking for a woman whose pan is as big as her heart.

Do you think that's OK?


Depends on what kind of 'pan' you mean.

Like a "pan" where all the animals run free, and frolic?

Oh, like the Etosha pan?

Erm nope, rather cook some beans.

Funny - the last thing you wanted to be ...

That is what you are 98 percent.

I'm a Viking?

Yes I am.

I must accept it.

DNA doesn't lie.

But yet I am!

Break it down however you wish, at some point those were my ancestors.



Everyone thinks I'm half this and half that and etc. etc. etc., but that's not how it works.

You have 23 pairs of chromosomes. Half are from your father and half are from your mother, so on that level, yes, it's 50/50, but go back another generation. Your mother is 50/50 your grandfather and your grandmother, right? But nothing says the 50% of genetic material I passed on to my kid is an even split of 25% my mom and 25% my dad. It might actually be more 60/40 or even more skewed than that.

There might be ancestors whose names are on your family tree whose DNA you barely have any of, and others who successfully got a huge dollop added in by random chance. So that might be where those smatterings of weird stuff came. It may have been generations ago, but by luck of the genetic lottery, those swaths of DNA have been retained in your family tree and passed on to you.

Considering that you actually wanted to be an extinct Tasmanian aborigine, you are taking it pretty well.

Jokes aside, but it's the "two" percent that makes me wonder.

Well if maize and tobacco came from the New World, then I guess also DNA.

Even if you never left your village.

Historically both narratives can be true.

Yeah well at some point somebody did it.
Evidently.

Flip ... the New Word.

I can't wait to go (in my dreams).

Many had to go, the dukes sold them as slaves.

Indeed, both narratives can be true. My many-great grandfather never left his village in western Tenn. and yet he married a Chinese woman whose DNA has had a direct effect on my health. It was not one of the cheap DNA tests that made the determination but dozens of medical tests when doctors were stumped when I had a rather nasty reaction to a blood transfusion that had been correctly typed and matched.

My skin and hair are European. My teeth are Native American shovel-shaped incisors. My blood is Asian. It's a jumbled mess I tell you!
How does one fill in those little boxes that ask for race?

Just checked my results again today since my wife told me there had been an update.

58% English / Welsh / NW Europe
27% Irish / Scottish
9% Swedish
4% Norwegian
2% German

I'm a certified mutt.

I'd like to save up and do the Y-Dna test one day to trace my paternal lineage.

I can definitely see the Nordic European; you look similar to a lot of the Swedes and Danes I have encountered.

I'll be brave enough to share myself. Father: 50% Danish / 50% Welsh. Mother: 50% Dutch / 50% Native American (Smelqmix tribe).

Maybe i should do this. I will have percenteges to share in threads like this. but what if they send someone else's results to me accidently?

Are you happy now, you're a "real Indian"?

No, now I want to be a World War I soldier.

Just as well you speak German.

What a relief ...

But don't get happy yet, they're all going into this palace and speaking this funny language.

Yip, your future under discussion, and you weren't invited.
But I fought for you, and my brother died in my arms for you!

I guess the more things change, the more they stay the same.

The results of the Colombian exchange?

Maybe, but I suspect the Nordic people (being seafarers) were in touch with the Native Americans long before that.

That two percent, how did it happen?

Hey brothers, been at sea for weeks, got any women?

Yeah we might.

What did you bring to trade?

I got some iron.

Let's talk.

On a virology level - we gave you smallpox, and you gave us syphilis.

Instant karma.

On a more social level, we gave you whiskey, and you gave us Stuyvesant.

Not bad.
I wish there was another continent to re-discover and mindlessly exploit.

There is, and this time it's us.
Karma is coming full circle.

Running Bear is about to go into hibernation.

In spring?
Better late than never.

And just before I sleep I pause, and whistle the dust from my paws.

Humans I tell you, who can understand them?

When all you need is the bear necessities.
