No I guess I don't. Can you spell it out for me?
 Quoting: Madame X

how many great great grandparents do you have? assuming a generation of 20 years


how long ago were they living?

about 80 years ago?

well, 160 years ago, you had 16 x 16 great...........grandparents, right?

that's 256 direct ancestors over 160 years

now go back 320 years. you had 256 x 256 direct ancestors

that's 65536

ok, now go back 640 years, still a good few hundred years after the magna carter, 65536 x 65536

that's 4 and a quarter billion. obviously, there weren't that many around back then, which means we're all incestuous bastardos!


we're all related.
