It turns out, accidentally burying your plow in your cousin's field is not an uncommon problem in Iceland. It's so common in fact, engineers have made an app to help lovers see if they're related.

Via SBS: The country's population is small enough for everyone to come from the same family tree, but large enough that not everyone knows one another. Meaning accidents can happen with cousins. And they have. One 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."

Doh! Well accidents happens, but hopefully not anymore. The app's even got a slogan: "Bump Before You Hump." The company has its eye on America as well, with plans for a Kentucky app in the works. The only difference, the Kentucky app will help relatives find each other. The new slogan: "Keep It In The Family."
