I always get stuck on fun articles regarding science, and I came across a really interesting one last night. Scientists have found that people with blue eyes are all “related”; that every person with blue eyes is a descendent of a European (in Spain) who lived thousands of years ago. Before that, all human beings had brown eyes. So this means that if you’re blue eyed and see someone else with blue eyes, you are related to the same oldie who lived about 8000 thousand years ago, hah! Sounds a little creepy too, yet how cool is that?!
“New research shows that people with blue eyes have a single, common ancestor. Scientists have tracked down a genetic mutation which took place 6,000-10,000 years ago and is the cause of the eye color of all blue-eyed humans alive on the planet today.”
