For those who don't know, when someone dies vikings put their body on a boat, set it on fire, and push it out to sea.

My question is, if they're legal where u live would u have one?
Obviously Fassa.

Yeah, why not?
An Augmented 4th or a Diminished 5th?

Of course. Then I'd have a badass runestone put up in the middle of town somewhere.

Plus, I won't come back as a zombie in the inevitable zombie apocalypse.

I'd want to have a viking death in battle, too though.

It'd be pretty metal. Just like neutering animals.
Obviously Fassa.

I would have Death In Fire - Amon Amarth playing aswell. Or maybe Runestones to my Memory. And people would get pissed drunk in my honour. That would be one badass funeral.

I have never heard of a law against them..you would probably have to get a number of permits and file a bunch of request with with the local govt before you die. They would likely cordon off a section of shore for you...

Hell ****ing yes. But those pussies better not use ****ing lighter fluid and a match, oil and flaing arrows only, my boat would be made out trees from the rainforest, and in it would be shitloads of meat, I'm not going to be around anymore, so why should I care about the environment.

Don't know, might be seen as you're polluting the sea. Would be pretty cool though.

i would lol if a viking funeral goes into the oil spill and burns the sea


That would be extremely epic, but do you really plan on dying that soon?
Obviously Fassa.

I don't care, I'll be dead.

Niagara falls.

Not only is my body going to be disposed of in one freaking awesome way, the people who came to see get the best funeral service ever served.

Considering I'm a viking (a pirate viking if you want to be technical ) I would totally do it.

Well, boats are rather expensive.

I'd do it back wards, It'd be an airplane on fire, and the wind not the sea as my resting place, and I'd wanted my flaming airbourne sarcophagus aimed towards land, not away.

Not necessarily, the 'floating' boat was just one method.
Another was to build a 'stone' boat (or rather a bunch of stones that represent a biat) on land and cremate the body in that.

This is a pic of two of them.

I believe that is primarily Egypt, but it could relate to other cultures

and yes I would love to have a viking funeral....
It's all just a joke

Yes, slaves, or as the Norse called them, thralls' were certainly sacrificed so they could continue to serve their master in the afterlife.

The 10th century Arab writer 'Ahmad ibn Fadlan' wrote a description of of the sacrificial ritual. It was usualy just one slave girl though (who more often than not was a volunteer) who was generaly drugged then strangled or stabbed after having ritual sex with all the warriors, although there's an Old Norse poem called the 'Short Lay of Sigurd' in which the Valkerie 'Brynhildr' instructs how many slaves (13 in all, 5 'bond women' and 8 thralls) were to be sacrificed for the funeral of the hero 'Sigurd'.

Viking pool partys are better.

What if you reanimate at sea after your corpse gets bitten by an infected seagull or something?

You'd be one hungry zombie, out there on your boat-coffin.
