Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: I thought we called it the "Derp South" now
Solid Muldoon: Yeah, keep using us as your Judas Goat. Cos y'all are sooooo civilized up there in yankee land.

It's an interesting story, for those who haven't seen this before.If you look, you'll note multiple cases of uncles marrying nieces, and as each generation goes by, they become more and more inbred. And here's how he turned out:The Habsburg King Charles II of Spain was sadly degenerated with an enormous misshapen head. His Habsburg jaw stood so much out that his two rows of teeth could not meet; he was unable to chew. His tongue was so large that he was barely able to speak. His intellect was similarly disabled. His brief life consisted chiefly of a passage from prolonged infancy to premature senility. Charles' family was anxious only to prolong his days and thought little about his education, so that he could barely read or write.
Oldiron_79: There is an Icelandic study that says 3rd cousins are actually less prone to inbreeding defects than people even less related than that.
