Regarding Thor Heyerdahl, is it a Viking thing to replace the wife with a 8 years younger woman in a string? :)



He was obviously a bit of a Knut. :)

Point taken. I have been checking out some information on the Varangians, and there were a suprising number of technically non Norse in the Varangian Guard.


In fact, after 1066 the Varagian guard was mostly made up of anglo saxons

ROTFLMAO! That is really funny.


Yes it is, assemble your own dragon ship by following the simple 2000 page instruction. (this is nitpicking) IKEA use correct Swedish spelling, so it is Drake, Drakar is the plural from of Drake, and the a is a long a so its not kk.
