Ragnarok: The Viking Apocalypse!!!   :willy: :willy:

Just a year after the Mayans wrongly predicted the world would end, Nordic mythology has foretold the End of Days with a Viking Apocalypse.

The countdown to Ragnarok has begun, with just 99 days until the world ends on 22 February next year, Norse experts have said.

A horn announced the start of the countdown from a rooftop in York. The horn belonged to the Norse god Heimdallr, who was believed to have blown it to warn people of their impending doom.

Norse mythology says that the god Odin will be killed by the wolf Fenrir and all of the other "creator" gods will fall. The world will then be born again and will be repopulated by two humans.

During the world's end, the sun's beams will become black and the weather will become treacherous, mythology states. "Brothers will fight and kill each other, sisters' children will defile kinship. It is harsh in the world, whoredom rife - an axe age, a sword age - shields are riven - a wind age, a wolf age - before the world goes headlong. No man will have mercy on another," a prophetic poem says.
With enough thrust, a pig flies just fine.

as long as I am one of the two, I'm fine with it...
the above are merely the ramblings of a hamfisted fuckwit who has broken too many helmets.

My little sister is gonna be pissed. 7 days before her birthday (Feb. 29th).
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

We are going to be all right. I just called Odin and told him to watch out for the Wolf Fenrir. He said thanks and wondered why nobody told him sooner. :shrug:
