I'll show you mine...

23andme is giving a whole new meaning to the profile page of the social network.  Now you can share your genetic information as well as your relationship status and your interests in underwater basket weaving.  If I had a spare $999.00 I would love to try this out.  Anyone want to sponsor it?  

It brings us closer to the time when my (much mocked) relatedness party game becomes a reality.  The game would be to guess the person at the party that was either the most distant or the closest genetically to you - and then use the (I assume) forthcoming Facebook/23andme application to find out who won.  You could also do celebrity variations and so forth.

So, if I show you mine, will you ???
