    Why did they even bother putting South Asian and Oceanian if it's 0%. There's no relevance to having that data there for you

    5.8% = sherdogger

    I don't want to do it out of fear I might find out I have chinese ancestry.

    That was my fault. I clicked on the option that showed all the categories they test for because it was easier to screen capture.

    Its a total scam. Instead, spend money on having a star named after yourself. It will be recognized in a book that, coincidentally, the company that you pay to name the star after you also publishes.

    Nah, this is banchan we're talking about, Ping Pang ain't getting no love.

    How shitty are Korean tourists in the PI? Do they walk around in complete disgust of the native population or do they hide it really well?

    I don’t think it’s a scam.

    My results turned out almost spot on with what I thought they’d be. And the refined ones with the new algorithm even more so.

    No, he's right it's a coin roll for most things unless one of your parents is a walking recessive gene and then you'll favor the other one heavily.

    These can end up somewhat accurate guesses just because it is a coin roll for the most part. If your mom is pure type "a" and your father is pure type "b" your results will not be 50/50.

    My ancestors are originally from Africa, and most likely migrated to Europe via a land bridge to Europe. 100 dollars saved.

    I believe that Sherdog might be home to the mythical "Missing Link" in evolution.

    Did you ever take one of the tests? Could be useful for science.

    They act like some of the locals in bad neigborhoods and throw garbage in the streets. Some are very noisy and even harass other Korean expats who have been living and running shops in the country for decades.


    Also when I was in High school a Korean guy my age Muay Thai kneed me in the stomach because he says its too big!


    Lol.
