    You do know how big London is and that big comminuties are not likely to have 'inbreeding' problems?

    England was inbred for so long that it will take generations for it to all work itself out completely, and in part I really do mean that. Like I think the reason you can tell an American looks American is because we're so mixed. Well, some people in the South aren't, but fortunately I'm not related to them and my European ancestors had the good sense to intermarry with the Native population. Hybrid vigor, ftw.

    I'm sure you know, of course, that my statement was meant as a half-joke. Duh. LOL.

    Yea but it's still part of Britain. Not as much genetic diversity ya know? Though London has had a lot of new genes put in the pool compared to the rest. There's a set of 20 or so faces that you start to see a lot if you spend a long time here (same in other countries, except a higher number usually).

    Of course, the larger study was done in the US apparently, and the genetic make-up of parents is all that matters. If the parents are related, it simply means they are more likely to share genes. If both parents have genes correlated with attractiveness and IQ, follow the reasoning. It multiplies good genes as fast as bad, but always reduces genetic diversity in future offspring and thus the odds of negative recessive genes being paired, as well as the resistance to environmental changes on a larger population scale due to increased sharing of vulnerabilities (takes a fair few generations of inbreeding for any of this to become significant).

    According to Hollywood, inbred children are crazy violent mutant murderers, all guns make muzzle flashes, it's pretty easy to shrug off being shot in the shoulder and cars explode when they crash into each other or when you shoot them

    It should be a complete joke, is all I'm saying. There's no reason to assume inbreeding in a large population such as england, obviously they have distinct features just like any other people, but inbreeding is about genetic mishaps, not genetic features. :P

    The hell? How is IQ ever to be taken seriously when pop media outlets talk about crap studies that help to inflate the intellectual egos of pretty people?
