      Mostly in the sense of six degrees of separation - not bragging rights.

      Several recent threads made me think about this. Going back three generations, I come from a fairly mundane, average, mostly agricultural background - typical for Central Europe. The transition to industrialization and more people moving to cities changed things - so I have a grand-aunt who owned a baking company, a great-uncle who owned a camera shop, a grandfather who owned and ran a dairy, a great-uncle who was a school principal, and there were more than a couple of priests and teachers.

      girlfriend #1: her grandfather was a famous musical instrument theoretician, her uncle a supreme court judge.

      girlfriend #2: her grandfather was prosecuted for being an influential union leader. And for being a Jew.

      girlfriend #3: she hung out with the Scorpions, and eight miles high later left me for a Golden Earring guy...

      girlfriend #4: she was assistant to a #1 organ transplant surgeon

      girlfriend #5: I still love her to death

      girlfriend #6: her grandfather was a famous philosopher

      girlfriend #7: nude, she would have easily won sexiest woman alive in pan-regional contests

      girlfriend #8: father developed some of the first manned space flight instruments

      Girlfriend #1 could fit a coke can in her vagina

      Girlfriend #2 used to burp the alphabet backwards

      Girlfriend #3 cussed more than me

      Girlfriend #4 was a virgin when I met her...and still a virgin when she went off to college. A week later she wasn't a virgin anymore. I missed that boat

      Girlfriend #5 was 39 when I was 19 (Not really a girlfriend but let's not argue semantics)

      Girlfriend #6 married me and is now 8.5 months carrying my first child. She's by far the greatest woman I've ever met. Smart, funny, as sweet as they come and loves me despite all the crap I give her.

      If you google my dad, he's the first one to show up.

      My wife's dad won a case against his former employer, United Airways, and was supposed to get a six figure sum. But they went bankrupt.

      My wife has a sweet goat voice. She can sing like this and it cracks me up!

      My wife's brother is not in the nut house, even though he was, and currently should be.

      We both went to school with the guys from the camp kill yourself videos. They later went on to bigger and better things.

      my wife's great grandparents family used to be part of the jack daniels distillery. They were related somehow and they sold off their portion and went broke. Too bad they did not hang on to it. I probably would not be working right now.

      Or, had they held onto it, you wouldn't have met your wife.
      Gotta look at the positives and the negatives.

      Not significant but my 1 and only GF's (who later became my wife) great grandmother was an Australian mail-order bride.

      Now my grandfathers side... That is slightly different.

      Only famous/semi-famous one I ever dated was a pretty well known video girl in the early 2000s. She's on cinnamonbunz.com, too.
