New App Prevents Icelanders from Sleeping With their Relatives

News of Iceland

April 15, 2013


The Icelandic population is very small and all Icelanders are related . But yet, it is big enough so everyone doesn't know one another. This means that each and every Icelander that is in a relationship, is dating a relative. In most cases those relations are distant. But not always. But how can they know?


We all derive from the same family tree. An online registry, Íslendingabók ( 'The Book of Icelanders' ) holds information about the families of about 720,000 individuals who were born in Iceland at some point in time. Today, the population in Iceland is just about 320,000. The database can be found on and everyone registered in the database has free access to it.


Everyone is related to Bjork

Being related to everyone has its merits. For example everyone in Iceland is related to Björk and every other Icelandic celebrity and politician you could find or think of.

Am I sleeping with or dating my cousin?

"Am I sleeping with or dating my cousin?" an Icelander might ask. The answer is: Of course you are, but how closely exactly are you related?

The answer to that can be found in the online database, but people might not always have the opportunity to look that up when they are for example out partying.

But now there is a solution.

"Bump the app before you bump in bed"


Three engineers made an app for the ' Íslendingabók ' database. People can now easily, and on the go, look up how they are related to other Icelanders. And a precious feature, using the bump technology, allows people that meet to just bump their phones together, to instantly see if they are too related to take things any further. The engineers' slogan for this feature was: "Bump the app before you bump in bed" .

The awkward moment when you meet a former lover at a family gathering


Everyone has heard of (or experienced) it when someone goes all in with someone and then later runs into that person at a family gathering some other time. This new app might just prevent such awkward moments.

The app is available on Android phones under 'ÍslendingaApp SES(Beta)'

A user commented on the app's website:

"If I would have had this app last year I probably wouldn't have gone home with my cousin"

The engineers which designed the App: Arnar Freyr Aðalsteinsson, Hákon Þrastar Björnsson and Alexeander Annas Helgason

Many newfoundlanders are distantly related as well. I discovered last year that my maternal grandparents are both descended from the same guy who emigrated circa 1750.

That makes sense. Quebec has the world's most intact birth records thanks to the Church over the centuries. Check out this guy- Jean Guyon .


ZOG is trying to preempt the dawning of a new mythos, the mythos of the blood, the belief that the godly essence is to be defended through the blood! The failure of this attempt will be testament to the inevitability of Nordic Islam.

Deep-thal berserkers speaking reconstituted Old Norse will sweep low Earth orbit clean of kaffir satellites and, from the new North Atlantic of the stratosphere, dive in supersonic freefall to single-handedly enforce Sharia Law in the financial districts and SWPL neighborhoods of New York City and London.
