The idea that virtually anyone with a European ancestor descends from English royalty seems bizarre, but it accords perfectly with some recent research done by Joseph Chang, a statistician at Yale University. The mathematics of our ancestry is exceedingly complex, because the number of our ancestors increases exponentially, not linearly. These numbers are manageable in the first few generations—two parents, four grandparents, eight great-grandparents, sixteen great-great-grandparents—but they quickly spiral out of control. Go back forty generations, or about a thousand years, and each of us theoretically has more than a trillion direct ancestors—a figure that far exceeds the total number of human beings who have ever lived.

Well... McDonald's was founded by Ray Kroc, so I'm pretty sure that's not one of the bloodlines.

Burt is an Illuminati?!? I always wondered how he got cast in Canonball I & II, this goes a long way to helping me understand this mighty conundrum.

Yeah right, the Bundy Bloodline, is that a joke?
AL BUNDY??? HE isn't really a person. Oh and Just incase you missed it, the History channel has proven that there isn't and never was any such thing as the Illuminati.
