generallyso: As if anyway would be ashamed of the wanton murder, rape, pillaging and jaywalking committed by their ancestors.


I've long wondered just how crazy pre-Christian Scandinavian women must have been, that so many of their men fled to the relative sanity of Irish women.

I'm okay with what they do in private, but I'd rather my children didn't have to be constantly exposed to their flamboyant viking lifestyle. School shouldn't be a place for liberals to indoctrinate our kids that being viking is normal.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: Everyone messes this up!! Pillage! Burn! then Rape!

Cause chicks dig a rich guy, and fires are romantic


Well, you know how it goes. You start with a pretty firm plan, but then it comes to execution and people start getting excited and the next thing you know they're stampeding the women and raping the cattle.

So three Viking ships land on the beach outside the village and Eric the Bloody turns to the first ship and says, "You men will be doing the looting. Start with the gold in the church." He goes to the second ship and says, "You will be doing the pillaging. Search every house and hovel and bring back anything that may be of value and what we don't want we'll toss overboard. And as he walks over to the third ship one Viking says to another, "Oh great, we're going to get stuck with the raping.  Again."

What's wrong with robery? I've got a nice heavy one, keeps me warm in winter. I used to have one with a hood, I miss that one. Used to go around the house chanting like I was in a Monty Python skit.

*THOCK!*

When I was a kid I owned a whole bunch of stuff to dress up as viking and I wanted to be one when I grew up. I was very disappointing when I found out there isn't much demand for vikings in today's job market and even if there were, apparently 5'6" Hispanic guys probably can't be vikings.

I'm pretty sure the term "Viking" denotes a member of a perennial-loser NFL team with the most defeatist fan base in the country. They're already making excuses for why the team won't win next season, FFS.

Skol, Viking's, let's lose.

Onagarf: Vikings robbed in one place and sold the loot in another. They burned towns and cities in some places and founded them in others (in Ireland and Russia, for example). They were by no means simple looters and rapists. They very quickly turned into Englishmen, Irishmen, Dutchmen and, ahem, Frenchmen. Even into Italians.


I don't know why Scandinavians think they have Viking ancestry. The really successful ones left to raid and then realized that becoming nobility was an easier and better way to steal than violence that destroyed their victims. People descended from the Normans have more true Viking ancestry than the wimps left behind and maybe that is why Scandinavia today is so peaceful and non-violent.

The Viking lifestyle - and it was a way of life, not an ethnic group - was driven by a desire to get rich quick. Whether that involved robbing tombs, trading slaves or committing massacres, they did what was necessary to become rich and famous.

So someday we are going to dress up as Nigerians?

A lifestyle that includes, if the History Channel drama is to be believed, a metric shiatton of eye makeup.
