Uzzah: Cyno01: [ image 500x626]

Norse Legends Reference Pages

MYTH #2: The son of Odin and a member of the Aesir, Thor was the god of thunder and the main enemy of the giants. He would smash their heads with his mighty hammer Mjollnir. To wield this awesome weapon he needed iron gloves and a belt of strength. Mjollnir would return to Thor's hand after being thrown and was symbolic of lightning.

FACT: According to Heindall, who used to watch the Rainbow Bridge for the coming of the Frost Giants: "Well, his hammer was supposed to return to his hand after it was thrown, but that particular feature never really worked properly, and Thor wasted a lot of prime giant-killing time chasing the stupid thing up and down Middle Earth. I've heard some of the old-timers say Thor could have smashed the heads of about 30 or 40 more giants, lifetime, if he only had a hammer with a decent return mechanism. I also asked him once about Mjollnir being symbolic of lightning and he rolled his eyes. 'I had a college girl tell me she did her thesis on how it was supposed to be some kind of penis,' he said. 'Sometimes a hammer is just a frigging hammer.'"

Sarsin: BalugaJoe: I have not seen it.

BalugaJoe, go buy a ticket, watch the movie, and join the superhero sensation before we all murder you.

Yup. I'm not one to call it a major work of art or go on about how the acting was stupendous and the meanings behind everything and all that crap.

I will say this. It was fun. A lot of fun. Seriously, one of the most fun movies I have seen in a very, very long time.

Saw it three times during initial release twice more thanks to the leak. I'd go see it at least 2 more times in theaters. Easily the best superhero movie of the year. Hell, maybe even best movie.

I'd actually consider seeing Avengers if I thought that might help it dethrone Titanic.
