    If the average of 2 children per couple, who survived and produced 2 more children, were consistent, then each person should have 1024* 10th cousins. And, of course, generations ago much larger families were the norm. The odds are not very steep that if we knew all our cousins back to the 10th there should be quite a number that are much our opposites in regard to many facets of living. So this ain't saying a whole lot IMO.

    *and you can add all the others up to that and you get 2046.
