Talk:1840: Genetic Testing Results

Explain xkcd: It's 'cause you're dumb.

Add in comment on joke between Genetic and Generic? The results are very generic, as all humans are from an unbroken line going back thousands of years. Perhaps add in a comment about what unbroken lines are typically in relation to, rather than how they are used here? 14:36, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

Oooh... is this comic going to be a series? --JayRulesXKCD what's up? 16:56, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

I initially thought that the image of today's comic was a repeat of the first panel of the previous comic. Thanks to image overlay [1], I know it's not true. Xenos (talk) 02:24, 23 May 2017 (UTC)

I may be off base here, but I feel that the timing of this comic is relevant, as it ties into the recent influx of internet ads for AncestryDNA's genetic test service on platforms like YouTube. Their ads boldly claim to track your entire genetic lineage for $100, and this comic could be lampooning this latest trend (they have usurped Audible and Squarespace)as the go-to YouTube sponsor. If so, it may warrant reference in the explanation to explain the timing and possible inspiration for the comic. 19:20, 23 May 2017 (UTC)

Imho the current explanation is sufficient. Long is not equals good. Vote for removing the incomplete tag. Elektrizikekswerk (talk) 07:15, 24 May 2017 (UTC)
