Did You Know That You & I Are 50th Cousins? {Video}

Via on Jun 14, 2012

We are all related.

I’m trying to decide if this is creepy or fascinating.

(Or a little of both)

I’m going to go with both, and mainly fascinating. Do you remember exactly what you were like five years ago? Every cell of you is different now. And yet, as different as you think you are from me, your neighbor, your friends or your significant other, if you are from the same country and the same ethnicity, odds are you have a relative in common less than ten generations back.

We are so much more connected than we are separate!

About Kate Bartolotta

Kate Bartolotta is the strongest girl in the world. She is the love child of a pirate and a roller derby queen. She hails from the second star to the right. She doesn't know how to behave with all the apples and ibexes. She doesn't suffer from her eight million freckles, she loves them! Like a rolling stone, Kate gathers no moss. Kate loves kale, being barefoot, Dr. Seuss, singing too loudly, gallivanting, palindromes, blackberries and has far too many books for her own good. When she's not writing, you can find her practicing yoga, running in the woods, playing with her kids, devouring a book, planting dandelions, changing the world and doing her dishes. Kate does not play the accordion. She is a massage therapist, writer and a compassionate friend to all. This year Kate aspires to finally give up on learning to knit and will instead spend that time putting a little bit more of her heart on the page. Connect with Kate on Facebook and Twitter
