After re-reading the linked article (post #3) why would anyone even think of bothering...too many pitfalls to navigate.
1) Tall dark n handsome (or blonde) with "Ivy League" history guarantees nothing /zip/zilch......And no one has ever met "some" of these types that have their head so far up their arse.....plain rude/ignorant/full of their own self importance....lazy,self indulgent,big headed oafs
2) The reference to red heads or "Gingers" is in poor taste & discriminatory based on colour...So best to filter them out ??...To endorse such an idiotic stance is objectionable.
3) Dark skinned peoples...so I guess they are not intelligent ....because that is how it reads....As if to suggest they are second class citizens....Again WTF.
On the matter of height : Albert Einstein @ & 5'7&1/2"..Stephen Hawking @ 5'7" tall (father to 3 children) & Leonard Susskind @ 5'9&1/2 all of which do make a mockery of height being in someway directly related to intelligence--rubbish to suggest such.
Then there's the question of why 4 generations...suppose that's to iron out any throwbacks...Could it also be they know a lot more than they are prepared to tell....that economical with the truth thing--tell em nothing& keep them in the dark...Just in case the s**t hits the fan.
Some of the finest have come from nothing....had nothing....been given nothing....had limited formal education....yet rose to meet lifes challenges... overcome obstacles....rose to carve out superb careers....built their futures on the smell of an oily rag so to speak ... .gone on to become successes as true humanitarians....philanthropists....mentors to society's less fortunate....in other words the salt of the earth.
It's a business plain n simple...supply & demand....At the mentioned cost of $41,000 that's a good return...as for storage cost that would be minimal as vacuum sealed liquid nitrogen flasks store literally dozens of vials in tiers.

On the subject of "Donations" that in itself is a misnomer...Namely said donor is PAID a fee of $125...in effect for services rendered!! what happens thereafter can become a minefield....A legal one at that,full of potential risk for the unwary....Likely odds are that during the course of the proceedings not once would there be any hint of any long term negative repercussions financially...And you could bet the last buck that they have a vested interest in DNA technology...Their legal representatives would see to that.
Quincy's post #2 "Potential liability is too great"--that I agree with.
