I've lately been doing some genealogical research with the help of Ancestry.com. So far, I've been impressed with their resources and excited about most of my findings. Certainly the upside to this search has been finding two Civil War veterans in my background (including one relative who fought at Gettysburg), the downside? Finding out that my cousin's 23 year old daughter is some sort of former Hooters girl bikini model who's life aspiration is to "live off her looks" and her self-description is "natural 34D and 'baby's got back". Let's not even discuss how her "thing she'd want to bring on a deserted isle" is Steve-O from MTV's Jackass.
It's times like this when I really value raising my daughter to be a sci-fi geek.
