Re: Vikings on History Channel

During the 8th and 9th centuries everyone was a brutal savage. Except Perhaps the priests. Stealing and plundering were the common means Of survival. You're absolutely right and not just in the 8th & 9th centuries. But even in these excessively savage times the common refrain was "God save us from ...

Re: Vikings on History Channel

There's a lot of Hollywood charisma around vikings. But what were they really! Destroyers, butchers rapists and murderers. As low life as a human can get. What they couldn't take they destroyed. Their vaunted bravery and courage consisted of invading villages and towns that they could plunder. If th...

Re: Foreign Legion (All Ye Faithful)

One of the best poems I've read in a long time. This ballad - because that's how it sounds - could be the story of the ages insofar as our relationship to the other side is concerned. I did notice the two different scenarios based on the distorted view of looking from the outside in compared to the ...

Re: The Judas Experiment

Reminds me of some of the old time spirituals that used to be sung, the kind which sometimes questions the ways of God to man or at least complains about it! It fits perfectly having both the rhythm and the content. Very well written. :bow:

Re: Gruesome Cruelness of Nature

As Tennyson wrote "Nature, red in tooth and claw", but humans are much more deep red than nature when it comes down to cruelty. Nature hasn't yet exterminated whole species that weren't yet ready to be exterminated. Leave that honor to man...and forgive the poor chipmunk!

Re: To Find What Death Is Worth

I've always planned way in advance for any trips that I've gone on. Why should this be any different. :mrgreen: It's different because it's one you don't come back from...a one way trip. Whatever is imagined to happen afterwards must simply be imagined now in real time when it's most useful! Have a...

God farting??? Well I'm surprised LS! What happens when He burps! Is that when volcanoes happen or is that only after taking a laxative!

Re: Bellicose rhetoric and threats?

From the common man's point of view that's the problem with intellectuals, and lawyers I might add. There's nothing particularly intellectual about it. One merely tries to explain, expound an idea or variance in views as best one can. I don't get what it has to do with lawyers either. Their thinkin...

There's a kind of cultural troika in Canada - excluding Glenn Gould - and that is hockey, bacon and donuts; hockey being the Caesar in the group.

What Italy is to opera Canada is to bacon. The Canadian position in the cultural hierarchy is thereby confirmed.
