Ancdote alert. When i was born and my relatives came to see, I wasn’t rolled out to the glass window.
My aunt noticed and said. “He’s not one of us, that kid is Italian”.
Turned out that sh knew because of a lablelling mishap. I told an Italian friend this story recently and added, I could have been raised a Sergi, He replied, no way, you are taller than five feet.

Anyway, there is a very similar article in the latest New Scientist, hence my “how long have we been here” question.
