    Smartphone App Helps Icelanders Avoid Inbreeding



    In Iceland, a country with a population of 320,000 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 to 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.

    "It's not a good feeling when you realize that girl is a second cousin. People may think it's funny, but (the app) is a necessity."

    The Islendiga-App — "App of Icelanders" — is an idea that may only be possible in Iceland, where most of the population shares descent from a group of 9th-century Viking settlers, and where an online database holds genealogical details of almost the entire population.

    "A small but much talked about feature is the loosely translated 'Incest Prevention Alarm' that users can enable through the options menu which notifies the user if the person he's bumping with is too closely related," Adalsteinsson said.

    They just took c**kblocking to the next level that's all.

    Just think about it...
    You had a nice evening, met an interesting guy/girl had the flirts, the compliments were ready for each other decided to go to his/her place and do the sexytimes.
    Finally there you're both ready for each other, doing the french and the foreplays.
    "I'm so ready for you!"
    "Oh me too but wait!"
    //Checks if they're related
    "Hmm look we can't have the sexytime, my phone says you're my cousin mmhm."
    //Shows undeniable facts right in his/her face.

    I wonder if the app is still in beta, would be hilarious.
