Sounds like a great excuse to party.

I know that the Norwegians are really upset about their cross country skiing teams, but it's not the end of the world.

Ha, Loki is always coming up with something. Last time he did this they locked him up in a cave and made him drink poison to stay calm.

Another part of the legend claims that the Midgard Serpent, named Jormungand, shall free itself from its tail and rise up from the ocean, with believers claiming this had already occurred when two giant fish washed up on the coast of California last year.

So this big scary serpent is only 20' long? Or are they saying that was its tail? Still wouldn't make it very big

You know I had almost totally forgotten that some morons actually believed the Mayan 2012 bullshiat.

Didn't they make a movie about it?

I'm just here to whine. HALF of the headlines posted today thus far are from the Daily Fail. Drew must have stock in that company or something.

Alright lads (and lasses), drink up and say it with me one time!

Lo, there do I see my father.
Lo, there do I see my mother,
and my sisters, and my brothers.
Lo, there do I see the line of my people,
Back to the beginning!

Lo, they do call to me.
They bid me take my place among them,
In the halls of Valhalla!
Where the brave may live forever!

Okay, now I get it. This viking type club is having a feast. And OBVIOUSLY the feast is SO good that Ragnorok MUST happen. How can they resist?

Happy to see it's just an advertising ploy. I've always thought that Ragnorok is marked by omens, not dates

They do this every year and every year there is the inevitable Fark link.

Which means I still have to go to work on Monday and driving an axe through an axe through a coworker's skull wouldn't go unnoticed. Think I'll call I'm sick.

Well, they were close. The world ended for them yesterday.

It's been a while since I've read the Eddas, but I don't remember it saying "um...yeah...February 2014. Let's pencil ragnarok in for then".

Modern day Vikings warriors have already begun preparing for the apocalypse by converging on the UK town of York to celebrate the Jorvik festival - an excuse for grown men to dress up and swing wooden swords at each other.


Love the snark in the article

What time Saturday? I have things to do and need to prioritize.
 
2014-02-19 08:01:01 AM  
Well, at least I'm going to get to see Billy Joel first.

I, for one, welcome our new Viking overlords and look forward to Valhalla.

I know, right? I mean...will I have time to go to the gym first? These are things we need to know, man! NEED. TO. KNOW.

day before my birthday, which will be forgotten by all around me anyway, but i was leaving for Vegas next week!

\i'll check the edge on my axe shortly...

Lagertha is everything I want a live action Wonder Woman to be. Fearless, tough, wise and feminine. I have no idea why it is easier to bring such a character to television than to the movies.

Meanwhile, can we have a hot Scandinavian thread? I swear, Scandinavian men are some of the only people who look better dirty with messy hair and roughed up clothes than all cleaned up. It has to be the Viking blood. Case in point;

Mads Mikkelsen. Nice, right? But he looks so much better this way;

As an aside, the Jorvik Viking Centre, which seems to be their source for this article is farking awesome. They have a whole Viking village in their basement. I recommend a visit if you ever find yourself in Jorvik, er... I mean York.

Did I miss the three years of endless winter? Did I miss Heimdall blowing Gjallarhorn ?

A plague of lutefisk will rain from the skies.

Or maybe lutefisks. Can't say for sure.

It would be hilarious if this happened.

The Vikings wouldn't allow the world to end before they win a Super Bowl.

We've had three years worth of winter just this year alone.
