To be fair, they're not legally allowed to tell you about some of the most important genes, because the discoverers of those genes have patented them. They can say you have the gene, but they can't tell you that we know this gene is highly linked to a particular disease because that would constitute medical advice. So lots of these services pad their reports with stuff like "you have the 'stinky pee when you eat asparagus' gene!" (No shit, Sherlock, I've got a lifetime of evidence for that one.)

Fortunately, the internet doesn't care about your stupid medical patents, and once you have your raw DNA data, there are separate public databases you can upload it into and comb through yourself.

Weird news? That's weird as in completely devoid of a sense of self-preservation.

French tourists chased by cheetahs after leaving car in Dutch safari park

A French family on holiday in the Netherlands have had a narrow escape at the Beekse Bergen safari park after being chased by cheetahs. A video circulating on YouTube shows how the family got out of their car twice, only to make a run for it after the cheetahs moved in for the kill. First two adults got out of the car with a child to get a closer look at a group of cheetahs, much to the surprise of the Dutch people in the following car, who filmed the incident. They got back in their car and drove off, only to be spotted a short while later walking on the heather fields close to the animals. The cheetahs then got up and started moving towards them in a menacing fashion. The French tourists quickly returned to their car. A spokesman for the safari park told broadcaster NOS that it is strictly forbidden to leave your car during the visit. ‘We inform visitors about the risks in several languages throughout the park,’ the spokesman said. In 2009, a nine-year-old boy was bitten on the arm by a cheetah after leaving his family’s car.


In a last ditch move they probably quoted something by Voltaire.
That would sap the will to live in any sentient creature.

The French tourists probably chalked it up as an interspecies social experiment and forgot about it the next day.

It was almost like she was mad at the cats for being cats. Darwin was needed here.

In fairness to tw, he isn't targeting children, he's an equal opportunity insulter.

I couldn't say. I don't pay a lot of attention to 45. Instead I try to promote non-insane candidates on both the left and the right.

Clinton needs to get off the stage and let someone else take a whack.
