    Welcome back to EVERYONE's favorite thread. The Fun Facts thread, this year you'll laugh, you'll cry and hopefully you'll expand your general knowledge so you can whip your grandmothers ass at Trivial Pursuits. This year we have double the facts! Double the fact checking! Double the fun and Double the people being confused about Friday facts on America's Thursday.

    Kicking us off with a fun fact guaranteed to tickle your nipple

    Fun Fact #1
    Research shows that all blue-eyed people may be related.
    At least, they may share the same distant ancestor. After studying the DNA of blue-eyed individuals from Scandinavia, Turkey, Jordan, and India, Danish researchers found that they all had identical gene sequences for eye color. They believe this trait comes from a single individual, called the "founder," whose genes mutated between 6,000 and 10,000 years ago. Before that, everyone had varying shades of brown eyes.

    Which means similar to most residents of Arkansas my girlfriend and I are in fact very distant cousins. Fantastic

    Bro 6-10k years having a common ancestor is silly when all European's (and anyone with any level of modern European ancestry) are directly related within 1.2k years.

    "Blue" means "homo" in Russian.
    So you and your "girlfriend" are both homos and distant cousins, eh?
