No , it's illegal because of the protestant culture.
From a genetic point of view, this is bulshit.
Where'd you get that from? From the three studies I've read, the rate of infant mortality and major congenital birth defects among first degree (sharing 50% of genetic material, such as siblings or parents and children) tends to be around 30-40%, far higher than the general population. First cousins still have a ~5% higher risk of mortality or birth defects, but it's not nearly as extreme.
That's a lie perpetuated by people who "heard from people saying" , who never actually studied genetics and people with agenda.
The rate is much lower, about 1% for general population and 2% for 1st gen inbreed.
This is barely noticeable. (I know, if you narrow your population to specific area and race, you can have like 4-5% )
There is only some genetic diseases where it's actually dangerous like cystic fibrosis .
For example, in the hemochromatosis (and most genetic diseases), you have 2 alleles that have to be defectuous. One can live normally with only 1 altered since it's recessive.
So, if your parents gave to both offsprings 1 defectuous allele , they have 25% chance to have a child with the disease and 50% normal, 25% free of this disease entirely.
But, the problem is, most people doesn't not scan their DNA before mating , and even less before dating . So the risk is not really 25% between siblings but a KNOWN risk, wherease people have an UNKNOWN risk ! They can have between 0 to 100% and they don't know it !

Never Give Up
a fellow minnesotan i see. its nice its staying this warm so late into october isnt it?
yearbook pictures or it didn't happen
are you autistic? is that a thing? does any college or university even have a year book? well, i don't know. but this is my second year of uni and there's never been any kind of year book.

Fun Facts to Know and Tell #2
I made another typo: the correct equation is 3^8*8!*2^12*12!
My mistake on the spelling, as a physicist, I only ever talk about numbers in terms of their order of magnitude rather than their names. The total number of possible random assemblies of the 20
keep in mind that the centres of each of the six sides never move
movable pieces of the cube is 5.3*10^20
, but only 1/12
1/3 for the correct top corner placement and 1/4 for their orientation
of these are solvable.
If you're a physicist, then you should no that particles to not stop moving at absolute 0. They are at their lowest energy state.
And if you're referring to the zero-point energy, that technically still counts, but that's too much to explain in one to two sentences on an image marco.
Yes, fermions become a degenerate Fermi gas with all the lowest states occupied up to the chemical potential of the gas, but bosons are not bound by that restriction.

- is that Steven Seagal?
To the Gulag, Comrade
yeah, but now he's Steven Seagone
- Ohh that's a toothbrush..I actually thought it was a snake lol.
- Or the cube is 3 inches long and you cut it into 3 pieces of 1 inch.
