    Re: BLONDISM in Italic peninsula (BIASUTTI)

    I'd be interested to know the cause of increased frequencies of blondism around Benevento, right in the middle of southern Italy, as well as the cause of the sudden drop in blondism directly below...

    Re: Classify Goethe

    I'm guessing the younger black and white picture is heavily stylized to make him more the dashing, young German man. I could be wrong, but it seems like a lot of famous personages get this treatment...

  4. Re: 'Most recent common ancestor' of all living humans surprisingly recent

    Perhaps you are also slightly misunderstanding the study? I'm not sure I see how it has anything to do with Dr. Birdsell's findings.

    Think of any person with some European ancestry. In the last...

    Re: How far back can you trace your ancestry?

    That's the part I'm not really clear on. I'm just as related to my great-great grandfather in my agnate line as I am winding from mother to father backwards to another great-great grandfather. So...

    I had forgotten what a bastion of flat-earthers Skadi was, thanks for reminding me, posters.

    I've seen this study before, and as an amateur genealogist, I'd say it's far more than plausible.

    Re: How far back can you trace your ancestry?

    Just as a heads up; as far as I know, there is currently no academically sound line that connects any of the 10th century nobility to the Merovingian dynasty, even through the Carolingians. Now,...
  9. Re: Classify this great musician and songwriter

    I'm pretty sure I know what he actually is, so I'll just comment on his music. I know a lot of classical elitists types look down on him, but I've always enjoyed all of his work, no matter how much...

    I don't know, but I find the Westernization of the concept of physical beauty a little disturbing. But I guess it was inevitable.

    First off, I found your map very interesting, and I applaud your work on it.
