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]
This is hilarious!
Incest? There’s an app for that!
Who’s going to hack the site and redirect all searches to their own photo, captioned “Kinship too close; Alternative Suggestion:”?
“Hey baby, wanna...check the book?”
“Incest? Theres an app for that!”
A game the whole family can play!
I once was approached by an attractive woman, and we chatted for a bit as if she somehow knew me. Very friendly.
I simply assumed she wanted me.
Later on at a Thanksgiving party with a part of the family I had not seen for many years, I realized she was actually my second cousin.
Obviously she mistook you for me. ;^)
Hey baby, you’re too cute to be my cousin.
How does the “same-sex” crowd handle incest...or does it matter?
“How does the same-sex crowd handle incest...or does it matter?”
It doesn’t matter for them...nothing is produced by their ‘relations’.
Too bad the Naval Air Station at Keflavik is gone, it would of been safe to assume Americans with names like Willie Jefferson Brown, Sanchez, Garcetti or Chang were not even vaguely related. Oh well, there is always their cousin twice removed on their mother’s side.
“It’s your patriotic duty.”
That’s right. We don’t need no stinkin database!
So did the Navajo Nation. Most of Utah, parts of SW Nevada and the entire island of Samoa. Snark, snark and off to bed I go to rest my genetics. Nite, nite all
Nothing says lovin’ like doin’ your cousin!
A tourist industry could be built around this problem
