Ok, who was the marketing genius behind their tagline
"... your Dna, save it, share it, celebrate it"

Umm, I'll celebrate it by keeping it inside my body thanks.

I guess this is too mundane and predictable to be a hoax . .

I had a professor who survived adult myelogenous leukemia and he had a karyotype of his chromosomes on the wall of his office. Why not?

Swap and share DNA with friends and lovers
I don't know about friends, but don't we do this with lovers anyway?

That's what I thought when I read that, dg.

Dude. I associate "swabs" with "earwax". Wanna swap? =P

it looks like all their doing is identity testing, like for law enforcement, or paternity testing. there's not much useful or exciting that you can get from that information, i mean unless maybe you think your parents lied to you or something. it's a lot less pretty that your chromosomes.

"Your very being, saved on a swab, for all eternity"

Pfft.

I have tons of DNA on a towel I keep next to the bed.

I see this as something that in five years there will be a report on how the dna has degraded to uselessness.
