#1 Other factors blamed for genetic flaws, such as alcohol consumption, smoking and social deprivation, can be ruled out, it said.

"Flaws" in West Yorkshire possibly. Evidence of conformity and group attraction in Georgia. :-(

#2 Same 1st cousins on both sides of the family tree, always makes for tricky Reunions. Trust me.

Altho entertaining as Besoeker points out in his quote.

#6 The increased risk of genetic abnormality should include beneficial ones as well as harmful ones; where are the Pakistani Isaac Newtons or Michael Jordan's?

#8 Or, as my daughter was told by a classmate in HS when they had to hang their family trees on the wall 'That's not a family tree, it's a family vine!'

#9 I guess it's a pretty subtle concept that marrying your first cousin is like marrying your half-sister.

#13 Yeah, but some proximity to mates reduces abnormalities, too. If your family is prone to big teeth and your spouse's family tends toward small mouths, your offspring could have dental problems.

Well, I read that somewhere. Prolly the internet.

#18 First cousin marriage is forbidden in Kentucky, West Virginia and Arkansas? Who'd have guessed?
And OK in California, NY & MA?

#19 In our new and improved culture I'm suprised approval hasn't gotten to consenting species, cousins or not.

#21 Does anyone know why North Carolina has a checkerboard pattern?
Is that where the inter-species issue comes in?
