here often? Are you my cousin?
In Iceland, a county with a population of , aoo where most
everyone is distantly related, inadvertently kissing cousins is a real
risk.
A new smartphone app is on hand to help Icelanders avoid
accidental incest. The app lets users "bump" phones, and emits a
warning alarm if they are closely related, "Bump the app before you
bump in bed," says the catchy slogan.
Some are hailing it as a welcome solution to a very Icelandic form
of social embarrassment.
Everyone has heard the story of going tn a family event and
running into a girl you hooked up with some time ago," said Einar
Magnusson, a graphic designer in Iceland' s capital, Reykjavik.

I'll move to Iceland. It looks pretty, and the volcano's are terrifyingly lovely. Can I have citizenship without speaking their language?

95% of icelanders speak english if not more but you would be better off learning the native language.

Luckily I'm an immigrant so this incest problem doesn't really affect me.

Also i almost never get laid.

In the end we're all basically one big ass extended family anyway.

We share a mitochondrial ancestor, but the original human population that survived the deluge (the historical version of the biblical flood, lots of small local floods happening globally) was about 10,000 strong. We're very, very distantly related.

Where I live the population is around 80,000, it has never occurred to me that incest might be plausible.

But is it an island that's remained fairly isolated for a long period of time? As long as people move in and out of the area regularly you're safe.
#42 to #40 - genericnewfag (04/19/2013) [-]
Good point.

It looks like he got an idea mid cum.

I'm from Iceland, I have that app in my phone..
*background story*- the app won a contest , was originally made to see who you are related to, ended up as a way to see who not to "bump"
<- looks like this *the app, not the phone*
#86 to #77 - Rascal (04/19/2013) [-]
the funny part is,
in the last episode,
you find out that they are not blood-related.

They'd make a fortune selling that in Ireland.

Nobody cares thats true, but they're stupid enough to buy the app.
