Would modern day soldiers go to Valhalla?

According to the vikings, all brave warriors go to Valhalla when they are killed in combat. So would a modern day soldier go to Valhalla? Wouldn't that kinda be unfair to all the vikings who are using swords and shields to have to fight against automatic rifles?

IIRC they fight and kill each other for fun, then the fallen wake up and then they drink and feast.

I thought that they had giant fights, and when they died they reawaken in the dining hall to feast and fight again, forever, to prepare for Ragnarok?

Yeah, but there's no way this guy isn't in a folk metal band.

Sucks to be a soldier then. Die only to keep fighting eternally. Is there any time to reproduce in Valhalla?

Meta-valhalla. A wryly self-referential version of regular valhalla.

Unfair? Are you implying that combat is easier today than before?

They got chopped up pretty good, though.

I mean, have you seen the weapons they use?

nah, he's saying it's unfair because one side has so much better weapons than the other. fair fights are always hard because they're fair.

no one's getting into heaven (norse or otherwise) because it doesn't exist. Soldiers give their lives for political ambition, not ethereal and abstract ideals like freedom or honor.

Sucks but that's life

The real fight to see would be vikings VS native americans when they tried (and failed) to colonize newfoundland and were kicked out by angry natives
