    Ricki,

    The G2a3 is indeed the old designation.

    Interesting you mention Scotland, my line is G2a-Z726 from northern England (Yorkshire/Lancashire) dating to the mid-1600's. My autosomal tests...

    It certainly would have been nice to have the technology, art, literature (more than the church was able to save) and trade networks that got swept away in the collapse. But, imperial government,...

    Well, thank goodness for that drunken ape, otherwise my wife wouldn't be bringing me a martini every afternoon (I make the gin & tonics and sangria). There are somethings that make life worth living...

    We gave our young sons a cat to raise to teach them patience and kindness. It must have worked because the cat became a dog. It followed the boys everywhere, would play catch with a ball, “talked”...

    While I don't dispute anything said above, I have to think that IQ tests don't really test innate intelligence, but some combination of education and environment. I don't accept that because someone...

    I would agree. I too have a soft spot for MA, but he was a man ruled by his passions; he was often described as a bull. He had no vision and could not have created a stable empire.

    Augustus is...

    I think in evaluating the emperors we should consider the situation they inherited. While I particularly like Antoninus Pius, he inherited a stable empire from Hadrian and a clear inheritance. One of...

    I’m afraid he thinks this is funny. This is not unlike those people who post videos that show cars running down people with opposing views, or chopping their heads off, and then act surprised that...

    This was my experience. However, I’ve uploaded my data to Gedmatch and use those results as a corrective. Now I just wish I could find two Gedmatch results that match.

    I’ve been happy with...

    I used LivingDNA because Expedia recommended it. For one fee I got Y-DNA down to G-Z726, where FTDNA had only given me G-M201 (the basal) for a price three times as much, plus mtDNA and autosomal. My...

    I don't know, I try, as a man, to be careful telling women what they feel or what their lives are like. But . . . it seems that most people to want to couple up. If married women hated their married...

    Thanks. Too many discussions here devolve into ethnic discussions when it is not relevant. Is this a European thing? I am "this close" to dumping this site and moving on . . .

    Whatever, I think...

    I think we've lost the thread here.

    The issue is, IMHO, how did the Swedes of Viking legend and Gustavus Adolphus (the 30 years war for cryin' out loud!) become the nation they are today?

    One...

    I am saddened that so many things I thought were true in the past (newspapers, published books, the evening news) have proved to be, at least in these modern days, shoddy and unreliable. Were they...

    Somewhat on the same subject, there is a new book out about the Odyssey, "An Odyssey" by Daniel Mendelsohn (it's a PBS News Hour book club choice). It's about a classics' instructor who takes his...

    Have you heard that there has been a retraction of the claim above? Apparently the author misunderstood the survey data and assumed that "spouse absent" meant that the spouse was out of the room (and...

    You'd think one of the craft breweries would want to cash in on the novelty.
  19. Growing vegetables from seed, in your own garden,...

    Growing vegetables from seed, in your own garden, is a great way to reconnect with the earth, and our past. Only eating what your garden can produce in season brings you back in rhythm with nature,...

    Yah, yah, men are stupid and women are smart. This article is just media click bait. I will point out that sociological studies, like the one this article is based upon, have a terrible replication...

    While it may be true in some (many?) cases, I don't want to believe that educators are lazy or stupid. And I don't think anyone goes into a profession wanting to do a poor job. I suspect that...

    College is different depending on your age at attendance. I did my undergraduate immediately after high school (in USA) and just accepted poor teaching because I wasn't aware I had a choice. I didn't...

    I just watched the video (thanks for the link!) and thought it quite good, though perhaps over romanticized. The latter is probably to be expected in a TV show like Nova with a general interest...

    Didn’t Diocletian try “something” like an hereditary oligarchy with the tetrarchy? It worked out just as you might think it would. However, when I complain about illogic in a show with dragons and...

    In another thread there is a discussion about who the best Roman emperors were. How do we think Bran will do as King? A little detached and other-worldly to attend to the day-to-day needs of rule,...
