This Is Interesting

From The Independent...

"Everyone with blue eyes alive today - from Angelina Jolie to Wayne Rooney - can trace their ancestry back to one person who probably lived about 10,000 years ago in the Black Sea region, a study has found.

Scientists studying the genetics of eye colour have discovered that more than 99.5 per cent of blue-eyed people who volunteered to have their DNA analysed have the same tiny mutation in the gene that determines the colour of the iris."
