I went to Myheritage for my DNA, didn't say much about Neanderthal linage but did suggest I might be related to the banjo player from "Deliverance", without the musical talent. 34% Scotch/Welash/Irish and 35% English. 12% Scandinavian, 8% Eastern Mediterranean. 8% Eastern Europe. The rest I guess was Southern White Trash.
Is it weird that I wish that Neanderthals were still around? That I genuinely mourn the loss of them and wonder what humanity may have lost as a result; how we might be different if they were still with us? Am I the only one who's had this thought?
