This holiday season, make them spit in a tube

Black Friday is upon us and everyone here in the US is going consumer crazy. Along with the traditional discounts in the offline world, there are also tempting promotions in many online stores. One great example is the discount that 23andMe is offering until next Friday. If you have not heard about 23andMe, they are a direct-to-consumer genetics company that sell a SNP profiling service. You get to find out about your ancestry and genetic propensity for traits and some diseases. The analysis usually costs $499 (plus a one year $5 monthly mandatory subscription) but they are having a $400 dollar discount (use promo code UA3XJH). What better way to spend Christmas than having everyone spit into a little tube.
