Bump the app before you bump in bed

The population of Iceland, numbering just 320,000, is so inter-related that there is a actually an app now available that allows you to work out if you are related to a potential date. The slogan for the app is "Bump the app before you bump in bed".

The Smithsonian Institution website has the story at http://blogs.smithsonianmag.com/smartnews/2013/04/some-icelanders-are-accidentally-dating-a-relative-and-now-theres-an-app-for-that/

I live for stories like this... :)
