  1. Re: Face Analysis Site Analysizes Your Racial Make-up

    These racial classifications are pretty crappy, but the celebrity lookalike thing really seems to work pretty well most of the time.
  2. Re: AW: Face Analysis Site Analysizes Your Racial Make-up

    I wonder what this site looks at. Sun tanning seems to make a big difference in classifications. What about hairstyle? Smiling leads to Asian classifications.

    What seems very consistent is...

    Re: Classify neo-Moses

    Maybe he just got fat and grew a beard.

    As for his alleged non-white mixture. If he wasn't known to be Jewish, I doubt anyone would compare him to an Ethiopian. He doesn't look at all Orientalid...

    Come on, it's Karl Marx! :D

    Again, he looks basically Alpinid to me. That's a type of "Caucasian" to use rather clumsy popularized terms.

    Re: Classify neo-Moses

    He was called "The Moor" by his children due to his dark pigmentation. His big bushy beard makes his face difficult to see.

    There is a strong robust element there, maybe Alpinid modified by a...

    Re: paleo-Mongoloid phenotype

    I am skimming through the chapter on Asia in the pop-sci book "Mapping Human History" by Olson.

    Here's a basic outline:

    Re: paleo-Mongoloid phenotype

    The problem here is that Asia is a huge landmass, much larger than Europe. Simple designations such as "Asiatic" or even "Paleoasiatic" might mask a wide range of diversity within the group. "Sinid"...

    Re: paleo-Mongoloid phenotype

    So maybe the "Mongoloid" types originated in the East Asian Core popuation that the craniometric article refers to. In this case, I think Sinid would be a better, more geographically specific name....

    A problem with genetic studies is the paucity of data, and even data gathering methods. It would be much better (and more scientifically rigorous) if we sampled and classified individuals based on...

  14. Re: Is Argentina really 97% white? The CIA factbook says it is.

    Right, Argentines are mostly Spanish and Italian, and the ones I've met look completely Southern European. They are on the flatlands, which were not very populated by Amerinds when Columbus arrived.

    Unfortunately, they were wiped out with a few survivors scattered to the north (in Canada) and in reservations in the West - and as minor admixture in Scots-Irish "Rednecks."
