Greek. Not so off since my father's family are Slovak - . But Mom's side are Scots, Dutch and a smattering of other WASP's. I'm American. In other words - a mutt.

It appears I "Walk like an Egyptian". But my heritage is Celtic - with likely a little Baltic thrown in to spice up the gene pool. Those Norwegians visited a lot of places.

Distinctly Roman, which could be, as they occupied the British isles for a little while.

I think the reality is that I've got everything from Russia west in here somewhere. But mostly Scot/Irish.

Brian, I think your chart is useless. According to that I am Oriental but I have not an ounce of Asian blood in me according to my DNA.

NORwegian.

PS: If you don't have DNA >50%, in one background, you are just a Blend.;)

PS: That is how you say Scotch when the Irish in you had too much to drink.:biggrin:
PSS: Per Sean Connery, Scotch is a drink, Scottish is from Scotland.
PSSS: I am 80% Scottish.:ass:

well, while I believe we have proven the chart to be inaccurate based upon our various known lineages, we at least now have learned what each others digit orientations look like! Bet I could pick many of you out of a lineup, sans shoes of course!

Who-da thought such a wealth of knowledge could come from this forum!! :biggrin:

As per your earlier post, this chart may really have application for us sailors.
observation....several of those (Greek, Celtic & Aboriginal) are at much greater risk of stubbing toes on midships cleats and other deck hdwr....
I remember vividly, kicking the cleats by accident while walking along the seawalls in Clearwater when I was a kid. It was my instep that took the brunt of it, but had I had a Greek, Aboriginal or Celtic foot, I might have broken toes.

kinda related, this toe thread reminded me.....had a client back in the day, as we sat at a bar somewhere in the Carribean on one of our incentive travel trips...as several of us worked mightily on getting a "nose full" of beer & spirits with varying degree of success, and truths and untruths being told, he spurted out "betcha 10 bucks I've got 6 toes on my left foot". Of course this drew quite a round of chuckles and spewing beer......we all ponied up a pile of Carribean dollars on the bar.........yup, sure enough, he kicked off his shoe and planted his foot on the bar....we all gathered around and counted 6! :yikes:

He happily walked away with a fistful of dollars.....true story...
