Viking Christmas Carol

A Viking Christmas Carol

'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the Hall
Not a creature was stirring, not warrior nor thrall.
And I in my armor, my shield and my helm
Was drunker than anyone else in the Realm.

I staggered upstairs and fell into bed
While four quarts of mead were ablaze in my head.
Then up from below came the sounds of a brawl
So I grabbed up my axe and ran down to the Hall.

I missed the last step and crashed down in a heap
Thinking, "Why can't those low-lifes downstairs go to sleep!"
When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But two brawny strangers, wielding mallet and spear.

I said to myself, "We'll soon have them beat!"
Then I noticed ten warriors laid out at their feet.
I gave out a yell and leapt into the fray...
I'll always regret my poor choice of that day.

For the one laid his hammer to the side of my nose
And up, up, up to the rafters I rose.
Then came a lone frightened voice from the floor,
"Those are no mortal warriors -- that's Odin and Thor!"

Then they looked at each other and they said, "Battle's done.
Now they know who we are, it no longer is fun."
Then Thor raised his hammer, and his elbow he bent,
And with a loud crash, through the ceiling they went.

I crawled through the Hall and flung open the door,
Not really sure that I'd seen them before.
The snow bathed in starlight, the moon like a glede,
I saw them ride off on an eight-legged steed

And I heard them exclaim, 'ere they flew out of sight,

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some
blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget
them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and
with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense."

Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Shoulda, woulda, coulda..." " Hindsight is always 20/20..." the rallying cry of the not-so-prepared. Granted unforeseen things do occur but you make preparations as best as you can, and then you just have to adapt, improvise, and overcome. Unfortunately sometimes you are the windshield and others you are the bug.

I try to live my life that way. I don't sweat the small stuff and try not to let the ignorance of others affect my way of looking at the world. I try to judge everybody by their actions and deeds, not necessarily by their race or job (although its real hard if their job is customer service).

If I cannot do anything about a situation, I try to not worry about it. The operative word there is try. I can just prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

But if I can do something about a situation, I will.

Even cops losing their jobs in recession

At this juncture, this type of thing would be classified as a “BAD SIGN”. Read it and get a permit and weapon!!! Because when seconds count, the police may not even be around much less minutes away…


Even cops losing their jobs in recession
As tax revenue shrivels, police agencies that for years were bulletproof when it came to funding are tightening their belts. Some worry that criminals will take advantage of the situation.

More guns+less violent crime? What a concept.

While reading a MSM story about decreased violent crime statistics, it occurred to me that maybe instead of LEO doing more to curb crime... that maybe, just maybe it decreased because of more guns being sold to law abiding citizens and criminals are more cautious in committing a violent crime on the chance that they may pick a armed citizen instead of a unarmed victim. I am very curious to see those statistics but will probably never because it would not be PC to advocate the "gunning down of the poor victim of circumstance who was just trying to get money to support his unfortunate drug habit" by taking the watch and wallet of a guy who is minding his own business... Oh wait... I forgot I am not PC...

Axe or Machete?

I want to put either a machete or an axe in my BOB. On one hand a machete is good for trail clearing and small trees for firewood and shelter. not to mention the removal of the head of any zombie that may wander my way. On the otherhand, an small axe will chop wood and with a flattened head will hammer nails. I dont know which I will choose. Maybe both, but then weight becomes an issue.

Holy WTF Batman

I just found a RFID in the packaging of a roast. I knew it! They ARE watching! **Rolls eyes** It is sad though that a grocery store has to protect their meat from theft and are keeping their inventory so controlled that they need RFIDs.

Safe at Last

I have 2 stepdaughters whose biological father ( hereby known after as the sperm donor or Asshat) has either disowned them or vice versa. Actually he has 4 daughters and 3 are estranged. Now 3 out of four is a damn good batting average in baseball, not so much estranged daughters. This Asshat kicked the daughter out of his home, accusing her of stealing from her baby sisters piggy bank and touching her inappropriately. The touching apparently came because the baby has a yeast infection. Now I am not a genius but if the doctor who saw her thought there were signs of abuse then CPS would be calling. I tend to believe my stepdaughter when she says that she did not steal. It was prolly the baby's fat ass mama. My stepdaughter is coming to live with us after high school graduation in 3 weeks. I wonder what the lazy bitches are going to do for a babysitter, a maid, and cook. What ever shall they do when the child support that we pay is cut off.

The funny thing about this whole situation is this stupid idiotic Asshat professes to be a upstanding and devout Christian. He signs his texts with "God is Great". God may be great but the sperm donor sucks big hairy donkey nuts for fun. I have nothing but contempt for a man who hides his baser instincts behind a wall of self-righteousness.

I am so thrilled that my stepdaughter is safe at last. She is staying with a friend until graduation and all her stuff is out of that hellhole.Safe at last!!!

She might even change her last name to mine.

Testing ...this is only a test

Your result for The End of the World as You Know It Test...

The Biggest Fish in the Crater

70% Guts and 41% Intuition

You've survived the apocalypse. If someone asked you why, you'd tell them between shots of irradiated liquor that you're a man of action. If they press further, you'd press them into the dirt.

It isn't all luck that your Rambo tactics have kept you from choking on the mortal coil. Keeping on the move is a pretty viable strategy against unknown enemies of unknown origin as much as it is against other, more crazed survivors. Maybe your luck will run out someday. Maybe your brazen tactics just make you all the bigger target. Maybe death will come knocking at your door.

This is for certain: You aren't going down without a fight.

Duct tape to the rescue

I just realized how to fix the economy...Duct tape your congressman when he wants to vote for another installment of As The Bailout Continues. A mixed metaphor -- You cant have your pie and pick your friends nose at the same time. I am in a very weird mood...

National guard happy to deploy??? WTF?

Now as an active duty Marine I was ready to deploy and did deploy because that's what we do. I did not like being deployed but I guess it was because I got my paycheck from Uncle Sam regardless if I was here or overseas. These guys and ladies are in the National Guard. Part-timers, if you will and according to this story are happy to have jobs for the next year deployed in Iraq.


How sad is the state of the economy to be happy for deployment to a war zone because you have a job for the next year.

Tin Foil Hat types are out in force!!!

Wow! I dont know what to think. Some people that I look up and respect are going off the deep end on this swine flu thing and shrieking about a government cover-up. I think someone has watched too much of the Stand and Outbreak. "They are gearing up for total domination and going to make the vaccination mandatory. Then when everyone is sick and weak from the vaccination, they will come and kill veterans and gun owners that they spied on with the pre-census workers." OMG Gimme a break

What the 2nd Amendment means to her

This should be sent to every politician as an example of what Gun Control does. The only gun control that saves lives is the use of the second hand to steady your gun.

Old News Regurgitated

I see a trend on the forums and groups. A newcomer or even a oldtimer will see a piece of "vital OMG everbody needs to know this" information and it turns out that it is a couple of months old. It has already been discussed to the point of making people sick.

Take The Blair Holt HR45 bill that keeps popping up as if its the latest attack on the 2nd Ammendment. Now for those that dont know, HR45 is a truly heinous piece of work that would mandate a National Firearms License and criminalize private sales. It would be an unmitigated disaster for all gun enthusiasts.

That and other things that have been beaten into the ground discussed six ways to sunday, keep getting regurgitated by people too lazy to do a search and read the copious amount of messages referencing said topic.

All I am saying i guess is before you post something on a list, check the date and if it is more than a month old, check the archives. It is very well possible that another supergenious found the same article and posted it 3 weeks ago.

Oath Keepers Site

Once a Marine Always a Marine.


Awesome Site! Just go there.

OOPs my Bad...

Oops my bad... I didn't mean to be a self serving ass**** who's penchant for greed pushed the economy into the worst economic crisis in almost a century...

Ive been following the news lately and trying to figure out the complex web of guilt and blame that everyone says is everybody Elses fault. OK, lets get one thing straight. Right now I am in college trying to get my first bachelors of education so i can teach Special Education. I am a poor college student who has to take out student loans in order to meet basic needs. I am also on the government's dole because I put in some time protecting the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic. Thank God I don't have to pay for healthcare because of that.

So I DON'T WANT to hear any more Sanctimonious Crap from anyone who says it is my fault. I don't own anything of high value except my truck and my guns. Well those and my life. I consider that and my families lives to be paramount in value.

Look I wish that I was partly to blame, maybe then I could feel a little guilty instead of outraged that some guys and gals made some pretty damn selfish decisions that turned out to be extraordinarily bad and I who was making way less than them has to bend over and take it like a man... Bull**** sez I.

First Post but not the Last

I almost came to the party late.

As a boy I was always dressing up in camo and sneaking thru backyards without being seen or caught. I had "gear caches" that if/when the Russians invaded i was all set to go "Red Dawn". I had my Ruger 10/22 broken down and kept it packed in a knapsack along with camo clothes and paint, JIC. Then I found girls and that faded away during high school. After high school I joined Uncle Sam's Misguided Children. I learned about small arms and Big Guns and small unit tactics. I enjoyed my time in the Marines but had knee surgery and was discharged. It happened right as I was getting out anyway, so it worked out. Fast forward 13 years to 35. It only took me 32 years to figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up. So I am pursuing a teaching career. So my Sugar Momma is supporting me while I go to college.

I have my views and for me, they work. YMMV considerably. I don't believe in any conspiracy theories. Tin Foil Brigade members tend to piss me off. But sometimes I say to myself "What if ?"

I don't prepare for TEOTWAWKI, I prepare for the time after it.
