"All the gear and no idea."

I have never heard of a droid called a wrench-jockey. I have heard a lot of SW terms.

And I have never seen Peedunky in any Star Wars literature/EU or heard it used in the movies.

You should demand a fact check. Maybe the show is wrong.

I looked at my nanny's new Ancestry DNA, she has 1% Scottish now

I googled those terms and they pop up in wikis from several years ago, so I imagine they're valid.

I've got Scottish, too. I think I've had it before, it was removed, and now it's back, though. Do you have any Scottish?

I don't have any Scottish. My nanny used to have Irish (low percentage), then it was taken away, now it's back as Scottish.

I wonder how long ago we had a Scottish ancestor to be 1%

Think of the basic math:

1 generation back = 50% DNA inherited
2 generations back = 25% DNA inherited
3 generations back = 12.5% DNA inherited
4 generations back = 6.25% DNA inherited
5 generations back = 3.125% DNA inherited
6 generations back = 1.56% DNA inherited
7 generations back = 0.78% DNA inherited
8 generations back = 0.39% DNA inherited
9 generations back = 0.19% DNA inherited
10 generations back = 0.09% DNA inherited

Of course, with randomness, this could differ by some generations.


Microsoft pulled its underwater data center out of the sea in Scotland

Wow, so if it was about 6 generations back for my nanny then that would be 8 for me I really wonder who the person was, if it was both mother and father or only one parent.

It'll be interesting to hear what info they get from the underwater comp.

Because of idiots like this.


Let's see if this idiot faces any consequences for her selfish behavior.

Wow! Europe does not play around.

I really don't get the pub culture.

Thanks for the breakdown.

I wish I had a superpower to look back on my ancestors and know who they were.
