People of the British Isles Project talk

(I'm not convinced by the approach they took to estimating Anglo-Saxon admixture proportions; but the intra-UK clustering discussed starting around ~14:30 should be objective enough.)

Garrett Hellenthal - The Genetic History of the United Kingdom: the POBI project

Garrett presents results from the People of the British Isles (POBI) project, an exploration of the fine-scale genetic architecture of the United Kingdom. Using the DNA of individuals sampled across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, Garrett illustrates the striking correlation between an individual's genetics and their geographic origins. Furthermore, by comparing the DNA of UK individuals to that of individuals sampled from continental Europe, we identify clear differences in ancestry among different geographic regions of the UK, reflecting the genetic imprint of the Anglo-Saxon and Norwegian Viking migrations from several centuries ago.

it's so obvious, it's staring you in the face. yet you can't see it.

the american conservative is unique. as one commentator said, correcting a mischaracterization by an american, "there are no conservatives in sweden. the current swedish government is just majority non-socialist."

western europe makes the Dems look like Pinochet.

it wasn't the international capitalist german bourgeois party, was it?

"don't be stupid, be a smarty, come and join the nazi party!"

american conservatism is itself jewish.

I know next to nothing about genetics but my understanding is the difficulty they had in teasing out the differences indicates that the native British and the Anglo Saxon invaders were, genetically speaking, very closely related. At least, I read that somewhere.

and dingleberry humperdinck:

the current world record for 2 miles was set by a 7 year old gelding in 1964---5 time horse of the year Kelso.

you don't know what "stupid shit" is.

it's possible via selective breeding given enough generations to turn anything into anything, but each species has a LIMIT.

given so many generations one could breed humans into flying somethings, but those somethings wouldn't be human anymore.
