Adding masculine words to obviously feminine stuff is silly. If you are going drag and trans, stop being silly and do it out and loud.

lol! I was only using terminology I have been told.  But I agree more or less.

In the 1980s though, it seemed it was such a guy thing to do for some groups of people.  Charlie Murphy had a funny line about Shalimar looking like a girl and yet getting the finest women.

A true homage

"Why don't you go purify yourself in the waters of lake Minnetonka?"

At lunch today I said to my friend, "then he cooked us all pancakes."  We got a good chuckle remembering that episode.  Then I got back to work and saw on FB that he had died.

That skit just never gets old.

I wish there were more Charlie Murphey True Hollywood Stories.  The Rick James one is just classic.

So long story short, I had to get a new job so I applied at Sephora. The fancy women's cosmetics store. I think I am going to get the job. This will make my mom proud since she loves Sephora and can use my discount, plus I could meet women in an environment full of women and homosexuals. I just hope that I could learn the ropes of the job soon though because I know next to nothing about the application of makeup let alone answering customers' inquiries.

Mantyhose is a thing, too. Although there are actually quite a few practical and medical reasons for why some men wear it.

So, my mother decided to pay for me to have my DNA analyzed to confirm all of my cousin's genealogy research.  The scores have come back, and now the whole family is puzzled.

The tests show 77% Southern European, 10% Scandanavian, 7% Asia Minor, 2% Finland/Siberia, and 2% Jewish Diaspora.

No sign of most the ethnicities the genealogical research 'confirmed.' Nor does the research account for Scandanavian, Turkic, or Finnish bloodlines.

Funny thing: the family tradition was that some of them fled to Italy from Spain to avoid the Inquisition.  Apparently being a Jewish convert to Roman Catholicism wasn't enough for those Spaniards, so they had to flee for Naples.  It was safer to be an ex-Jew in Italy than in Spain.

So, I guess the 'Jews For Jesus' thing worked for them.   

That or the red-hot pincers...    ;)

I do recall reading that the Spaniards tended to be rather skeptical of conversions from Judaism and figured they had better be safe than sorry so they pretty much indiscriminately killed anyone with Jewish ancestry.  As bad as the 21st century might be, it certainly wasn't all sun and roses in ages past.

Did you go through Ancestry? I've done the same for my own genealogy research. They have a page that explains it pretty well.

Welcome to the concept of "genetic ethnicity". :P Your genes go back farther than your family tree does, so you could be seeing bits and pieces that have been passed down genetically from farther back than your family tree shows. Also, although your ancestors lived in a certain region, their genes could have been influenced from other places through marriages over the years. For example- my own family on both sides has Polish/Rusyn ancestry with people immigrating to America from the region within the last 80-100 years, but surprise! My genes show less Eastern European influence than I had expected to see. It doesn't mean that's not my ancestry, it's just that the aggregate of the random gene transmission I inherited shows a bigger story. And I showed up with 11% Iberian Peninsula despite NO clue as to where that came from.

As for Scandinavia (possibly Finland as well), I have 6% which wasn't a "known" ethnicity, but consider: you are also very European and Vikings were known to pillage and rape throughout- so their genes are sewn far and wide.

What I think is really interesting is that my siblings could take the same test (and I plan on making them :P ) and get totally different percentages than I got, just as a quirk of what bits of DNA we happened to inherit.

If you're curious, here's my results:

Europe West 38%
Great Britain 19%
European Jewish 11%
Iberian Peninsula 11%
Ireland 9%
Scandinavia 6%
Europe East 4%
Finland/Northwest Russia 1%
Italy/Greece <1%

Those tests have some imprecisions. Maybe you barely have a drop of, say, Jewish blood, but the presence of your own genes among Jews (who may have gotten it from miscigenation with Europeans) made it pop up in your test. Southern Europe, for a second example, has a specially multiethnic past, it has common roots with North Africa (the darkest Mediterraneans) and Northern Europe (some Nordic strains) at the same time. I'd like to do one myself, though, most of my tree is Portuguese but there's some African, Amerindian and Sephardic Jewish somewhere. I might get a few surprises.

That's what they say, geneticists, that is.  If you test with three different companies you may get three different results due to a number of factors.

I tested with Family Tree DNA which does the most comprehensive test.  It showed what I know of my background, even the one hushed comment about there being an Native American woman in my grandmother's line. 

So I tested for predominately Old World, from Northern Germany up to Siberia and one hit in France, then the rest is Native American and South Central Asian, with 1% unaccounted.  I am guessing they are too polite to tell me that I carry 1% neanderthal genes like a lot of Euros. 

My only family match was Scandinavian, and none of us know anything about our families.  Lots of illicit sex in Scandinavia apparently.  Got to have something to do on those long dark winter months. 

South Central Asia was a surprise, but I'm inclined to believe it since they picked up on the New World genetics.

Well, that all depends on how you define 'Arab.'

Some would consider 'Arab' to be all Arabic speakers, including Egyptians (like you).  Whereas, I believe for the purposes of genetics, Arab is:

This component of your ancestry is associated with the region around the eastern Mediterranean Sea, Red Sea, Persian Gulf, and Caspian Sea. This region was the first stepping-stone in modern humans’ migrations out of Africa. Prehistorically, the Arabian Peninsula (Middle East) is considered to be the earliest site of plant domestication and is also home to some of the oldest known buildings, and likewise the oldest known evidence of writing, and possibly even the earliest civilizations. Historically, the region saw continuous movement of groups for tens of millennia. One of the largest was the growth of Islam, centered in modern-day Saudi Arabia.

Today, this ancestral component occurs at highest frequency in people from Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Oman, Yemen, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, and Iraq. Because of its importance geographically and culturally, this component is also seen in North and East Africa, parts of Europe, and to the east in Iran and Afghanistan.


My 'Asia Minor' component is described as this:

This component of your ancestry is associated with the border regions that separate southeastern Europe and southwestern Asia around the Mediterranean, Black, and Caspian Seas. This part of the world saw some of the earliest migrations and crossings after modern humans left Africa some 60,000 years ago.

Today, this component is found at highest frequency in people from Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and the Caucasus countries. Given that it rests in the historic and prehistoric crossroads of Europe and Asia, this component also occurs in varying frequency in other neighboring populations throughout the region.


So, potentially-speaking, I may have ancestry that would today be considered 'Arab.'  The problem is that the window for this ancestry is from 1,000 to 8,000 years ago.

Just for clarification: is the 'bag of beer' a bag containing a beer can, or do you literally mean a bag of beer?

I suspect he means a bag...maybe with a straw.....ie the vendor wants to keep the bottle...so you get a drink poured into a bag with a straw....(at least this was how they handled soda in Brazil in the 1990's )

Learn some useless Finnish, lesson 1: Pussikalja. We have a single word for getting a (plastic) bag of beer and drinking it in a park. I went to first pussikalja this year today and almost burnt my face. The summer has officially began.

Bags of soda are unfortunately outdated in Rio. Bags of ice cream are still a thing, though.

I've never been outside Rio, São Paulo and Minas, on the other hand.  :-\  But there's urban rainforest in Rio and I'm more tired than excited to cross it.

Oh no. Even we are not that drunkards. A bag containing a few beers is what I meant.
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
Leviticus 19:34

Wow! I remember my early teenager days when I lived in northern Paraná, after school we used to go to this little bar and ask for soda in a plastic bag (the name of the soda was Tubaína Guaratuba) and fried pizza or another snack, was extremely cheap then, good ol' days.

This is the brazilian way to drink it, those gringos in the foto don't master the art of drinking soda in a plastic bag.
