    Why in the blue hell would I want to spend a thousand dollars to mail my spit halfway across the globe??

    I don't need to know this.

    I don't care what my alleles say. I know I'm me. I know I have big feet and black hair. Why do I need to have someone show me a map of my genes to proove it ??

    I can see this as being maybe a convenient test for doctors (diagnosing certain genetic diseases perhaps), or the incredibly vain... but why on Earth would the average person need a "personal DNA evaluation" ??

    They're just giving people more vapid things to worry about.

    What a silly idea.
