    Post Re: origins of browridges

    I like to think (hope) that my families browridges come from the tronder/anglo saxon rather than irano/afghani as was mentioned before. to my knowledge i have nothing but north european blood in my family background.

    you can find out what you are through online genetic testing. dna ancestry or something like that. It's pricey, but probably worth it. Sorry, I can't say anything about brow ridges. I haven't a clue on the topic.

    23andme: 99.73% European, .27% African

    Nordic Au, please don't take this in any way personally, you or your relative pictured here looks Nordic to me overall. I want to return to the picture on the left for a moment. Brow ridges such as I have, for instance, are small, and barely noticable and on the outer sides of the orbits and just above them. The man pictured on the left does not have especially large ridges but, he has an underlying butress of bone, visable only in this picture, froming a slight raised area above both eyes and running to the center line, above the nose. If this area were greatly, instead of slightly, raised, this would be a supraorbital torus, not a brow ridge. What I am saying is that this is the bony pattern, barely visable, of something else other than what we see every day and probably the reason for Nordic AU's interest.

    Once I saw a man in a theater with such a "pattern" except he had a full blown supraorbital torus. He was about five feet seven inches, receding forehead, nose in the same angle, long skull, blond hair and florid skin. He caused no special interest from anyone but me. I couldn't take my eyes off him and he must have thought me gay.

    If this individual which is pictured had a forehead which slanted back at a sharp angle, the feature in question might be more noticable.

    The same with me. It's actually a good characteristic, it amplifies the supraorbital expressions. It also gives you a melancholic look when under artificial light, what makes them more visible, since they blend into to the white of the skin otherwise.

    Also look at those skulls:

    Claiming some crazy intermingling with pre-humans is anti-Nordic.

    In stead of throwing your money to pricey commercial tests, do like me, show munificence and make some donations to fund much more worthwile research to end the suffering of those little creatures....
    I like children, I'll probably wind up with a horde of them someday. I don't do donations, one - I don't have a job, my "gene test funds" are basically change from grocery shopping, two - a few donations aren't going to end the suffering. Education and better living conditions will. Also, for me to make a donation, I'd have to feel a deep connection. I don't. I feel more anger when I read stories about abused animals. I don't know why, but I do. Illness does not make one sad, realization of the illness, and the people around them acting sad and depressed makes one sad. I'm not talking about physical pain - sad, but the emotion sadness you speak of. Ever see someone bring a puppy into a child's lukemia ward? Nothing but smiles from the kiddies. I'd help out in that sort of way if I could. Children see effort, not money.

    and back to brow ridges...

    Post Re: origins of browridges

    Thanks for all the input, i find physical anthropology very interesting and im glad i stumbled across this forum when i did. i have included a profile shot of myself im not too sure if i have a sloping forehead as mentioned before infact most people i know dont notice my browridges unless i mention them. I have had my pictures classified on here before but i would like to resubmit some better quality pics for more input from others, but that wont be possible till i get off my butt and buy a digital camera.

    Your forehead does not slope much, relatively speaking. Your browridges are moderate, like mine. I would say tentatively that you are a robust type mixed with Nordic.

    Caucasians in general tend to have heavier browridges than the other Races. Browridges are a Secondary Sex Characteristic in Europid Males if you ask me. As in Females the browridges are much less pronounced. Aesthically speaking weak browridges are preferable.

    Among Europids I'd say Corded Ware and Gracile Meds tend to have the least visible brow Ridges. While Brunns,Faelids have more prominent ones.
