Larry David’s “true ancestrial roots”
here’s a funny video of Larry David’s experience with ancestry testing through the Ancestry by DNA test from DNA Diagnostics Center, as revealed on George Lopez. apparently their test uses 176 Ancestry Informative Markers, or AIMs. which ones these are and why they only test for European, Native American, Sub-Saharan African, and East Asian “BioGeographic Ancestry”, we don’t know without inquiring further. the references they cite are all from 2003 and before too..
Larry David is 63% European, 37% Native American.
“so I fail as a European?”
ain’t that interesting. it does make it seem a bit ridiculous/sensational, but funny indeed. their explanations of how these things work, however, aren’t the clearest thing:
