    I thought the DNA heritage thing was interesting. Pretty much of all my folks came over from the British Isles but the majority of my DNA was Scandinavian and Italian (other than Irish/British). So I assume Vikings and Romans that invaded?

    Yes sir...Ancestry DNA goes back 1000-2000 years...When they do a DNA test on someone living IN south England it's 25 % Western European or Scandinavian...You had the Norman Invasion, Germanic tribes, and of course the Vikings colonizing Great Britain....It is believed many Roman's stayed on to settle in England...Even a theory that King Arthur was a Roman Soldier....

    I think it should be left to individuals involved to decide for themselves whether they think they're better off. I kinda doubt any would say they think so.

    Fixed. That was a typo. I meant to say Kaep.

    Uhhh, Kut - that Time cover is from March 13, 1933. The MotY that year was Hugh S Johnson

    Hitler's strategic program for world domination was based on the belief in the power of Lebensraum, pursued by a racially superior society. People deemed to be part of inferior races, within the territory of Lebensraum expansion, were subjected to expulsion or destruction. The eugenics of Lebensraum assumed the right of the German Aryan master race (Herrenvolk) to remove indigenous people they considered to be of inferior racial stock (Untermenschen) in the name of their own living space. [ <==== real, actual racism ]

    If someone put my picture up next to pictures of others, who were unsavory characters and said that I was "In their company", I'd want to have a "face-to-face conversation" with that guy (as Churchmouse says).

    The meme doesn't outright say that Kaep is a sexual predator, but to say that it's totally off-base to think that, in my mind, shows your own mind-set. That meme was conceived so that the obvious implication could be denied.



    You could be right, but I took it more as "meh, he's in good company" - a critique of the mag's selection criteria

    But as such, it is a weak criticism, because the others were chosen before their perfidy was known whereas Kaep was chosen despite his well known controversiality. The Venn diagram has no overlap

    I thought when MLK Jr was marching they were marching for something (civil rights) not against someone (whites, southern racists etc)

    I think this is probably a better way of saying it than I did, but essentially this is my thinking.

    I hadn't thought about that fact. Maybe GQ is subliminally trying to tell us something about Kaep that we don't already know?
    Is it me? It's them, right?
