The YouTube video Is Pokimane Asian? I Take A DNA Test! by the YouTube channel Pokimane.
Here is the description for this video:
So many people ask me all the time about my race, ethnicity, or nationality; I decided to finally take a DNA test and check out my Ancestry! 😄 Time to see if i’m actually Asian or not 😳 Join me as I check the results! ❤Expand me❤
I am glad that TED-Ed did a short informative video on genealogical DNA tests, this is basic information that everyone needs to know about these kind of DNA tests, so that people will know what these tests can and can not tell you about your ancestry et cetera.
Last year I heard about law enforcement using DNA data from one or more DNA testing companies, two of the other big three DNA testing companies claimed to not be involved, but I never heard anyone mention Family Tree DNA so I hoped that they were not involved in that; but if this is true then we were betrayed, and I am not happy about this at all.
Thank you The Young Turks for bringing this to our attention.
I had a variety of dreams that I woke up remembering but I did not record them each time, and so now I only barely remember part of two dreams.
Another thing that has possibly impacted my dream recall recently is that I am currently taking some passion flower capsules before going to sleep, I am basically a test subject for my brother GC, he heard that it can help with anxiety and sleep.
This dream possibly took place in a country in The Middle East that was possibly an island, but I can not remember.
I remember sand and maybe there was something about a risk of war and / or something.
At the end of the dream I remember possibly leaving the country in a car that was being driven by a somewhat older man with light-color skin, I remember us talking as he drove, but that is all that I can remember of this dream even though I know that there was more before this.
This dream took place inside a house, the end of the dream involved me being in a room, and my brother GC was in the room as well.
I assumed that they were for my brother GC, and to my surprise his results had more ethnicities showing up than mine did and his percentages were different.
I assumed that 23AndMe results would be different from my results from Family Tree DNA so that was not a surprise, I assumed that some of his percentages would be higher with 23AndMe as well, but I did not expect some of the results.
It showed some ancestors from Spain at about 50% maybe, our ancestors from The United Kingdom percentages were only about 1% different with his being 1% higher than mine, but I can not remember the other ethnic groups / ancestors / nationalities that were represented.
I was not sure if these were really my brother GC results, I just assumed, and so I was going to ask him after I spend more time looking at them and comparing them to my own.
If the results really did belong to my brother GC then it was interesting seeing which groups of ancestors did he possibly inherit genes from, siblings et cetera will not usually get the exact same results because what you do and not inherit can be random so you can have ancestor who will not show up in your results for various reasons, and so being able to see more of our ancestry represented would be nice and to see how our results compare.
The science and everything behind this is not exactly clear-cut or advanced enough or standardized enough yet to go back that far or to be as accurate as we would like, nonsense like race et cetera has really messed up things when it comes to things like this, and many groups are not properly represented in the databases.
