Introducing Viking work ethics on American soil.

There is actually nothing to be afraid of here in life.

But most people act like disorganized creatures running around recently having their necks cut off.

Prior to Gustavus Adolphus, monarch of tiny Sweden, decided to break the backbone of Catholicism in the 17th century, he told his troops;

"Fear not, O little flock, the foe Who madly seeks your overthrow; Dread not his rage and power; What though your courage sometimes faints, His seeming triumph o’er God’s saints Lasts but a little hour.

Be of good cheer; your cause belongs To Him who can avenge your wrongs; Leave it to Him our Lord. Though hidden yet from all our eyes, He sees the Gideon who shall rise; To save us, and His word.

As true as God’s own word is true, Not earth nor hell with all their crew Against us shall prevail. A jest and by-word are they grown; God is with us, we are His own, Our victory cannot fail.

Amen, Lord Jesus, grant our prayer! Great Captain, now Thine arm make bare; Fight for us once again. So shall thy saints and martyrs raise A mighty chorus to Thy praise, World without end."

Didn’t you tell everyone to get an expensive car, a Beemer or a Volvo, on another thread? What’s going on?

“Drunk again?”

- Yes, I’m oh so drunk.

Being drunk on vodka all of the time is exactly how we Vikings have accomplished what we have today.

Gothenburg, Copenhagen, Stockholm and Oslo are very much like Moscow, true isn’t it?

- What’s going on?

Sweden boasts a GDP development rate of 7.3%.

Obama’s America does not.

That’s what’s going on.

- Drunk after having had two Tuborgs?

OK, I don’t have a say in the Free World any longer, I’ve had some Danish anti-Muslim beer.

Aside from killing numerous people and devastating Germany, the 30 Years War accomplished nothing, except to persuade the intellectual elite that religion was destructive, thus leading to the Enlightenment, the secularization of Europe, and the current wimps who run things there.

I have read both posts over the past few days. I’ve picked up two themes: 1. Anti-Catholicism; 2. Incoherent ramblings with a context only you seem to understand.

Enjoy the vodka! Isn’t Absolut being sold to the private sector? Anyway, perhaps sobriety, even if only temporary, would help your communication skills. As is, you sound like a disciple of Louie Farrakhan’s School of Logic.

If memory serves me correctly, the work ethic up there is centered around a phrase that means something along the lines of ‘just enough’, where you do the minimal possible to get by to maximize your personal enjoyment time.

That isn’t exactly traditional in the US.

I have a feeling the OP comes from a family tree that was left behind to cook and clean for the women while real Vikings went off doing their Viking things.

As cripplecreek said, Vikings don’t pee sitting down. The Viking blood all died in battle or conquered another land and stayed there.

The word is “Lagom” and is used more to suggest that moderation is preferable to excess.

IMHO, going “Viking” on the lot of socialists occupying high office and those firmly attached to the teat of this nation is utterly and completely called for.

Sometimes we don't crap sitting down, either.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

Introducing Viking work ethics on American soil.

Sorry, but the Rape, Pillage & Plunder franchise is now solidly in the hands of Somalis and other muslims. Vikings need not apply. (Other than for latrine duty in the muslim camps perhaps.)

Vikings were also afraid of rabbits, as they thought they were underworld creatures.
