NOTE: Yes, Julius Caesar was a poor choice, and Cleopatra is not much better. Their heirs may have been part of the 20% that we are NOT related to. Confucius, on the other hand, is much clearer.
Part 2 will be posted when I can finish it, probably on Saturday. My apologies for the sound quality, my microphone is in the slow process of death. I'm sure this one is riddled with math errors. Feel free to point them out.
