1. british and german on my mom's side, eastern european jew on my dad's side. i'm not sure exactly where most of my dad's family came from except i know that one side was living in belarus.

2. My father is African, more specifically, Bantu.
My mother is 1/4 German+3/4 other European heritages...Irish and English make up a big part of that.
So, I'm 1/2 African and 1/2 European.

For my kids to be a 1/3 African, 1/3 European and 1/3 Asian, my wife would have to be 1/6 European, 1/6 African and 2/3 Asian.

(Edit: Correct me if I'm wrong...but there is no easy way for a person who is 1/4 black, 1/4 white and 1/2 asian to have kids that are 1/3 black, 1/3 white and 1/3 asian....not without a partner who is extremely mutt like such that she's like 5/24 black and white, and the rest asian...So, my grandkids could never be 1/3 of everything, meaning if I wanted this 1/3 of everything person to exist, it would be up to me...and a girl who just happened to be 1/6 black and white and 2/3 asian...which in itself is an impossible quantity, if we're sticking to integers.

Is a 1/3 of everything person even possible? If I'm 1/2 black and white, my kids will necessarily be 1/4 black and white. If my wife 1/6 black and white, her kid will be 1/12 black and 1/12 white. If we were to have kids, our kids would be (1/4)+(1/12)= 1/3 black (and white), which would leave 1/3 asian, which makes sense because half of 2/3 (my wife) would be 1/3 (my kid).

But, if I were to marry a full blooded asian, my kid would be 1/2 asian, 1/4 white and 1/4 black. For her kids to be 1/3 everything, she'd have to marry someone who would produce kids that would complement the production of my kids kids, which would be 1/4 asian, 1/8 black and 1/8 white. For this to be the case, the kid would have to be both 1/4 asian, 1/8 white and 1/8 black added to 1/12 asian, 5/24 black and 5/24 white...and for that to be the case, my kids partner would have to have one of the more complex backgrounds out there. How a person who is 1/6 asian, 5/12 black and 5/12 white would even be produced is hard to say even...certainly not from a base two, and how a person who is 1/6 black, 1/6 white 2/3 asian is produced is equally hard...

So, 1/3 of everything people don't exist...

Which I guess makes sense, going from a base two algorithm and expecting it to fall neatly into thirds won't happen...it's the same reason why 1/3 can't exist in decimal form...

I would never have known lol...

3. Mainly English and Finnish.

except for few sami tribes, but samis have their own roots from sweden, norway, finland and russia, apart from other people from those countries.

5. 100% English and Scottish.

6. German, Norwegian, Slovak, and Scottish-Welsh. Though I was born in America, so that really makes me Native American.

I was raised as a non-observant Roman Catholic, I guess, and I was only forced to go to church with grandparents and such. Right now, I believe in "God," but not religion -- which makes me somewhere in between agnostic and spiritual.

How does believing in god put you anywhere near agnosticism?

"God" is not the same as God.
