    TL;DR: fewer white ladies ecstatically eating salad.

  2. This Artist Recreated Seven Generations Of Her Maternal Line, Has Probably Harnessed Their Power

    Spirits!

    Artist Christine McConnell (previously of dessert monsters) went two hundred years and seven generations back into the maternal side of her family tree and did portraits recreating her ancestors.
