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?

Soldiers in Valhalla don't fight each other, they pig out on mead and beer until Ragnarök. Bro, do u even Norse?

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?

I don't think Vikings ever got explodified to bits and pieces
But we little know until tried how much of the uncontrollable there is in us, urging across glaciers and torrents, and up dangerous heights, let the judgment forbid as it may.

So if someone dies in Valhalla, where do they go?

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?
This ends now, eat the goddamn beans!

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

lol native Americans. Any soldiers that rock up to battle with their nipples on show are noobs.

why'd they win against the vikings then?


Probably infected them with AIDs, damn fags.

It's true, they tried to settle the Americas several times and got chased out every time until they got smart and decided to settle for easier pickings like the Brits.

Freedom is an abstract ideal? How so?

Freedom (often referred to as the Freedom app) is a computer program designed to keep a computer user away from the Internet for up to eight hours at a time. It is described as a way to "free you from distractions, allowing you time to write, analyze, code, or create."[1][2] The program was written by Fred Stutzman, a Ph.D student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.[3][4][5] [6][7][8][9][10]
Freedom is no longer donationware, but, rather, is available for purchase for $10US. A five-time trial is available for free at http://macfreedom.com/


Do you really want to risk your life for this?

hum... good point but then paying for code is a little abstract. I mean you're not really accumulating more material possessions, are you?

in case you aren't already privy to the history... the vikings had trouble with the native americans because they totally outnumbered them. the vikies weren't looking to wage war, they were looking to explore and set up settlements so they didn't exactly bring an army with them.

later settlers from europe had an easier time because european diseases had ripped through native american populations. estimates vary but even the most conservative depicts massive, massive destruction. if the vikings had landed in this landscape you could imagine i'd live in erikland rather than maryland

I almost took a cultural anthropology class this semester called World of the Vikings, but didn't because I didn't want to wake up early. Kind of regret it now. Vikings on the History Channel has sparked my interest.

Sure, you just have to run towards the enemy full on, no hiding. Also don't get shot in the back.
