Fact of the Day: Grandparent Ancestry

When you are born, exactly half of your genes come from your father and half come from your mother. However there is some variation, the genes that came from your grandparents are a bit more uneven though statistically roughly about the same. It's entirely possible that on both your paternal and maternal sides, that you can be slightly more one grandparent than the other genetically.

  9. Both of my grandfathers died decades before I was born, so I blame them for all of my bad traits.
