Genographic Project

I was just watching The Colbert Report and he had Dr. Spencer Wells, the Project Director of the Genographic Project. It sounds really interesting, and as soon as I have a spare $100, I am going to participate. Basically, they are trying to map human history by collecting DNA samples from people around the world. What's in it for me? Good question. After I submit my DNA, they will send me a report that shows me my entire family line (on my dad's side) since we came from Africa (as all humans did). I expect to be calling Jesus "Great Great Great ... Great Great Great Grandpa Jesus" when I get my results back. Should be interesting.
