1: I’m Russian (though stalin was georgian, oh well)
2: His daughter lived (and died) within a reasonable distance from me
3: Dad was adopted (possibly out of shame of stalin?)

Even if you’re not religious, you have to believe that we’re all related to each other. According to geneticists, everyone is at most 50th cousin to everyone else. A research even suggested our most common ancestor might’ve lived in the AD era.

if you’re going to attempt and be all cheeky with it
the native americans themselves are likely not people who originally stayed in america as they were likely people who had migrated across the landbridge that connected alaska to russia before the oceans covered that hullabaloo up

that and regardless i’m still all american, i wont let your communist mindtricks work on me

He isn’t super famous but I’m related to Billy Barker. He is probably only famous here in British Columbia Canada.

Thats exactly what Vsauce says, I watched the video just before this thread was made, how did I know after I watched it I would get a thread like this just like I predicted correctly a lot of other stuff? About 99% of what I predict comes true.

To take things even further, we’re all related to Noah, due to everyone else being wiped out in the flood.
