    I have been looking frantically for famous U members, but apart two of our Eupedia moderators (Angela and Sparkey), I haven't found any celebrity yet.

    Fine juxtaposition, but... what it gives us, eccept of fertilizer for mythomans?
    The sense is similar, if we would present together people who are lefthanded
    or righthanded, with red, black, brown, dark and light blond hair or according
    to some genetic diseases or eye colour or according to their height... Acually
    some of these collections could have even more sense than famous mts.

    Mitochondria are the powerhouses of cells. MtDNA plays a vital role in energy production, but also in cellular pH, longevity, stamina, and several diseases. In every way it is much more important than the traits you listed.

    Yes, but he doesn't look so nice in picture. Too bad I was at the Natural History Museum in London a few days ago, but I forgot to take a picture of him. Anyway according to Jean Manco his DNA test was probably contaminated and his results aren't reliable. Still I'd bet he was a U5 member, but who knows he might be a U5b. U2, U4, U8 are also all possible.

    Ötzi is also more famous. Even Brad Pitt got a tattoo of him on his arm.

    Most people aren't sufficiently aware of this.

    My first surprise when I was tested was that I was U2e. The second surprise was how many mutations it had undergone. I was intrigued enough to have the full genome of it done and then analyzed. The amount of information on it, and the number of studies discussing the implications of each mutation for so many aspects of my life was rather astounding.

    The X chromosome, which is rarely discussed, also contains a wealth of coding information.

    He was fully ENF, with very little WHG or EHG ancestry.

    Isn't supporting Trump associated with HG ancestry?

    Are Sardinian-Americans usually for Trump or Clinton?

    ===================================

    He was "White" not "Brown Inside" (= WHG-descended).

    The closest you're going to get is Italian-Americans, who are leaning Trump at about the same percentage as other white Americans, with the exception of the Irish. Have your forgotten that study already?

    If you want to find Otzi look-alikes just go to the Tyrol in Austria. They're all over the place.





    Is it possible that when Otzi was young he looked like this gorgeous specimen...Hans Perathoner...Tyrolean sculptor? Probably not. But I digress, sorry. Couldn't help it. :)

    Ok, But I was writing in the context of famousness.
    If it would be a list of profits which gave possesion
    of such and such mt, ok, then it would be totally
    different story.
