When your society has inhabited a small, remote island for countless generations and boasts a population of only 300,000, the odds of having sex with a relative are significant. Luckily, Icelanders now have a handy tool to avoid family-sex.
Íslendingabókmeaning "book of Icelanders"is an online incest avoidance search engine. Plug in your name and that of a potential mate, and the site searches a genealogical database to see how closely you're related. It's likely that you'll have some overlap many generations backin which case you're probably safe from mutant children. But if you share great-grandparents, you might want to reconsider your Nordic hookup.
But there's a twist! As GlobalPost reports, new research says sexing with a distant cousin is actually beneficial for fertility, as your genes are more comptable than someone from the other side of the planet. So, avoid creepy incest, but seek out good incest. Icelandconstantly at the top of quality of life lists, and an easy place to sleep with an attractive cousin. [GlobalPost via TNW]

Thanks Slings and Arrows.
The age of consent for sexual intercourse in Iceland is 14. Just saying.
i had the same thing happen once...
I was at a family wedding and saw the most beautiful girl i had ever seen...
It turned out to be my cousin, who I had not seen since she was 9 (this was now age 19)
How many of the 14-year-olds have fathers with shotguns?
in Russian “-ova” means daughter of, ivich mean son of.
ICELAND: 300,000 people; twelve last names
Technically no last names; it’s all Somebody Someonesson or Someone Somebodiesdottir.
“there was no room in his nearly imbecile mind for more than childish superstition, insane pride of birth, and an interest in court etiquette.”
Sounds like somebody we know, doesn’t it?
