How I Will Examine my 23andMe Genotyping Results, and How I Will Share Them

From my experience with 23andMe’s genotyping service, when results were ready, I got 254 reports all at once, and they didn’t even include much of the ancestry reports! The reports are listed at the end, and were in groupings of:

It’s Been a Bad Few Days for the Armstrong Clan, RIP Neil and Lance

First, Lance Armstrong quit the drug fight and basically took his place among the cheaters as far as I’m concerned. He had a bigger ego than any of them, but not all of them combined, apparently.

Neil was class.

Lance was ass.

Rest in peace, Neil.

Rest in tease, Lance.
