Ok, so the good news is that classic DNA inheritance accounts for 80% of your epigenetic DNA methylation pattern. Then again.... 20% of your inherited DNA methylation pattern is caused by environmental factors affecting your parents, right? So..... if your parents were baby-boomers, you're kind of USC?
http://genomebiology.com/2014/15/5/R73/abstract
Despite the important role DNA methylation plays in transcriptional regulation, the transgenerational inheritance of DNA methylation is not well understood. The genetic heritability of DNA methylation has been estimated using twin pairs, although concern has been expressed whether the underlying assumption of equal common environmental effects are applicable due to intrauterine differences between monozygotic and dizygotic twins. We estimate the ...

Eirik Solheim took 16,000 photos through his window in Oslo over the course of 2010. The images were 3888 pixels wide, so he chose 3888 of the photos and assembled a 1-pixel-wide strip of each, in chronological order, into this collage. It's sort of a time-lapse, expressed as a still image.
