Quote from: albrecht on September 17, 2022, 09:37:17 PMIt, sorta, does. Takk! But I still say sorta! So confusing but a good start. One thinks Bible is hard with the begets and begats but, then one, goes into the sagas. Often of which have somewhat conflicting tales. Note this is why Bible and Sagas are more truthful than some think. Because even a simple car accident has different versions, and all will say what they saw, did, recollect, are true. All lawyers and cops will tell you worst kind of truth (though will USE to their advantage since our biases.) I digress, sorry. Unn is key to the story. She was a strong woman, so surprised not more celebrated these days.

Well, if "Unn the Deep-minded" was a female, then (if there is any sort of order to this chart) presumably "Olaf Peacock" was female.  No names were spelled "Olof," btw.

Well, one does it like David Leigh Rantschler Rothschild Martindale, so...



Dude. I've been sitting here alone in my kountry cuntry kitchen, just minding my own buisness, which mostly involves watching lots and lots of BitChute videos--fuck YouTube, it's trash--and you're telling me, that you've been here all day, Astroturfing your own identity away?

Wow. That's awesome, if so. I'm gonna need to see some receipts. Aim high. This is so great!


Back to reality: so there was no idea, 50 years ago, that I would grow up smart enough to call upon the Divine for Intervention in Punyling Human affairs? Wild. Weird. Wicked.

Problems develop on worlds were The Craft is held in secret. Wink.

Perhaps you don't recall, it's called a "tasting flight recorder black box." Must be all that phenycyclidine again.


At least you all have each other to write Rx on little pieces of paper and pass them around like it's study hall. I can't even talk to Julian. He's banned me for years. I asked him for a stool sample, and, that was it.


By the way, I'm fine. If I'm dying of some horrific disease, it sure doesn't seem to be doing it very quickly in spite of all the longhorn chili and Schlitz Malt Liquor I'm swilling.

So, what do you think... should I go to a lawyer/doctor\psycho-Herr-doktor, or what? I'm fine. It's all of you who seem unwell, and... I won't lie.

I am sad for you all. So, so sad. Sigh. I wish there was something, anything I can do. I know!

More crack.

That was the third or so that spun me so I figured just bad translation. One always see Olaf or Olav etc but the OlOf was weird. And the odd parlance. I think clearly it was a typo in Laxdale Sada Everyman's Library #597 1964. Because was corrected later. But threw me a knuckle-ball when I saw it and got me into this situation of asking BG, of which you provided some answers! There was no 21 and Me or even Hollywood so who knows? Unn was female. She had kids and also various and sundry affairs and auctions and will provisos.

(PROT), I don't even blame the kikes. What difference, at this point, does anything make? You all saw me try to stop you. I tried to stop all of you.

Oh, it was so much fun for all, and all for one Prize. Honestly, who could even look away? Not me, that was for certain.

I think you misunderstand my porpoises here. Which reminds me. I have news to distribute, but, I don't feel like recording any audio, so... /shrug

You probably don't care about what's happening anyway.

If it involves the never-ending and really boring continuing saga of you, SMM and Rubini then no, no I don't.

My hand to God: I had no idea the woman who I suddenly starting thinking of after the one before that was paid off to dump me was their daughter.

I rather think this is the kind of enjoyment that a flux capacitor is meant to deal with, but... well, it got taken apart, oh well. In any event, I don't consider any of that to be a saga. If it were, I would have heard of something interesting.

Has it occurred to you that you don't even know who you're talking about? lol. Looks probably not. I don't have to figure it out, or expose anyone, or strive for attention. (Ugh. Please, I've had enough.)

Tell you what. I'll just watch everyone self-destruct *again* what are you all, stealing lives from cats and living on surplus so as to constantly trigger a resurrection cycle?

Oh, well, that would work. Btw, p.s.: I can't be your scapegoat, Patsy -or- pastry chef. Sorry, that -does- sound like it would have been fun.

Toodles.

Quote from: albrecht on September 17, 2022, 09:05:00 PMSpeaking of which, we have different interests and collections. BUT I'm flummoxed, I think a bad translation. But could be some weirdo proto-Hollywood type of deal. It was resolved but, at one point, in The Laxdale Saga, it said an Olof but in a way that seemed daughter. Also weird parentheses and "hersir" stuff, like some Hollywood stuff! I think translation bad because, later, no sex-mixed up. Though fun stuff that would not set well in the public these days, including a sorta auction of women held by a women! Also one notes all the nicknames. Lots of backstories that are unadressed. "Bladder-Skull?" K_dubb help me!

Haha yeah Olof could be a girl's name back then, a little startling to be sure, but there is a clearly female Olof who is a love interest in another of the sagas.  As you might imagine, the Laxdale Saga has been furiously mined for gender studies since cross-dressing is a major plot feature but when people get excited I point out that it is grounds for divorce under Icelandic law and that in neither case is it clear that the people in the stories were actually cross-dressers as we understand them.  In one case it is probably slander and the other obviously inadvertent.

Still, the law related is interesting:  apparently a woman wearing pants was grounds for divorce but not just any pants, pants with what is probably a pouch for your ween.  Meaning that women wore pants (quite natural for riding those little ponies, pants probably came in with horses way back on the steppe when horses were first domesticated) and that men's pants were probably pretty damn tight if you needed this bit of tailoring.  Even the skinniest jeans still smash your junk.  And they talk about man-wives wearing these pants as though it was a known thing people did, presumably the divorce would be granted if the husband had a problem with it but there's no reason to think it was automatic, some guys were probably ok with it.

Also we learn a wife could be granted a divorce if her husband wore a shirt slit so low you could see his nipples.  Which is pretty damn low.  I mean, how many buttons do you have to pop before the nippies are hanging out?  I don't think I've ever done that even drunk-dancing, or if so I hope there's no evidence.  But shows funnily that their definitions of sexytimes weren't too different than ours and they were always covertly eyeballing for nippies peeking out, but order must be preserved, and in a mead-fueled debauch a stray nipple on the man next to you might excite a frenzy of lust.  Followed by regret, recrimination, and probably with the advent of Christianity blaming the poor nipple-shower for being so damn sexy, and stoning him into the hereafter :(

Re Bladder-Skull probably some weird birth defect, the usual explanations for those names are unfailingly prosaic, Bluetooth probably had a prominent rotten tooth, Shaggybritches had hairy legs, Redbeard, Blackhair, Fairhair, the Boneless probably just means he couldn't get it up, ancient people could be shy about naming the peen and referred to it euphemistically:  knee, thigh, loins, any nearby part but you know what they meant.  Even "foot" could mean peen sometimes, or the fundament as in "Oh My Foot!" like my grandma used to say, not thinking, but it obviously means something down there.

Mange takk! For both replies. The sagas approach levels not seen except, maybe, some Bible books, when they  get into all the lineages. I like though that times don't really change. Maybe they do now, IDK, but when I was younger we all had nicknames, usually 'insider' or even weird constructs of which the origins were complex. Based on features, bad plays in a game, some incident, ethnicity, or whatever. Amazingly some people accepted and we still use them today and others use them- without knowing the origins. Example: "DT" which meant Down Town which explained, if asked, from Simon&Simon cop but, really, it involved coming in and he was performing an act on a fat chick while drunk.

I devolved this thread and should probably start a saga thread.

MP is so good. I forget the precise term but there is a term about cultural self-effacement and protocols. Like the proper amount of time to refuse something and a weird almost dance about it. 'Would you like a coffee?' 'No' 'Are you sure?' 'No, if not a bother...' 'I already had some on...' 'Well, if you insist.' 'I'll get some.' 'I hate to be any trouble and must get going' 'No stay at least for one cup' and so on. And then leaving a situation which can take a LONG time. The Irish are better and do their patented Irish Exit (often stiffing others with a bill, however.)

I think mead is a part of the problem, back when. I only had once but I suspect it has lots of sugar. So bad hangovers and would lead to general orneriness and wanting to fight. I forget the poem but vaguely recall some line "doth prostrate lie but to rise again and drink once more."

Oh no!  It can be made dry as the driest sherry, there is a stand at the local farmers' market with many different styles, one would pass for fino in a blind tasting, I am sure.  It's how much of the sugar you allow to turn to alcohol.  The driest are the most basic styles.  I think their sweeter styles they actually add honey or fruit or some other sweet stuff back in; I don't drink those.

Now whether the alcohol you get from honey is different from grape or potato or barley I am not sure.  And that poem iirc maintains that you are not drunk if you can get back up but only if you stay on the floor.

Yes. I recall now. Still don't recall the actual poem or author (if there is one or some traditional deal.) I haven't tried mead except once. I still suspect a source for fighting and/or hangovers. I have no scientific evidence but only personal anecdotes and observations. Clearer the booze, less of hangover. Whiskey causes fights. Wine and such makes you hungover. Beer is stability factor but will put on the lbs. Liquid bread and for centuries people survived on it. Though Russians and many Scandis don't abide but my booze rule summer means clear and winter means brown. Sort of like your rules about wearing white. I do break the rules, however.

I think the main problem with mead these days is that it is objectively not that good.  Once the sugar has turned to alcohol you are left with a vague honey taste that, if they are using raw organic honey with bee parts and wax in it still like they like to do, is pretty barnyardy.

That is why they always try to blend with berry juice or spice etc.  The appeal back then is that, in an era before distillation, it was the highest-ABV drink you could manufacture since your sugar base is so much more concentrated than grain or fruit or really anything else they had.  So you drank it to get schnockered. Led to many nippies hanging out, many divorces  :'(  That is not to say that they were bad people, just that the kind of man who is always flashing his titty down at the mead-hall is probably not going to be a good husband.  Understandable.

albrecht

There are many types who love honey. I like it also. Who can forget the Bo Derek scene. But it is approaching weed/hemp in some claims! All kinds of things from protection from allergies to fixing wounds! And tax-breaks if you raise bees via an AG Exemption- reminds me when some lawyers bought sheep or goats to get some weird tax break or claim, pre Corona-Chan, some room in your house was an 'office.' IRS cracked down on much of that. Though I like the idea of having own stock. Especially since you seen the prices of even basics like eggs! So a coop doesn't seem like a bad deal, and eggs much more tasty when chickens eat bugs and such. They will eat almost all of your leftovers also.

I think, if distilled, all sugars become the same alcohol (except wood, stay away from that. Though storage in various woods ok?) But certain processes allow more flavor, remaining sugars, etc. And so that results in taste. But also hangovers. No science proven. But clearer the better in the latter regard. Legally, in the USA, vodka, for example, is a 'grain neutral spirit' so one would think there should be no difference between cheap stuff or the rapper bottle-service type.

I'm guessing, only guessing, drinking mead or any beverage out of a skull of your enemy post battle should be a 'red flag' for a suitor. But it could be the chicks back then dug it. Idk.

The story in North Carolina is that Blackbeard was finally captured by the British Navy.  They beheaded him aboard his own ship, and his headless body jumped up, dove overboard, and swam around the ship seven times before sinking.  The head was put on a pike and marched through Blackbeard's home town, Bath, N.C., and Portsmith, Virginia.  It was then put on a pole at the entrance to the harbor.  But it was stolen back by the pirates. In the 1920s it was reported by reliable witnesses to be still used as a drinking vessel.  It had been sawn in half at the eye hole levels and coated in silver.  Pirates still living on Ocracoke Island used it in mead drinking ceremonies.

I have not heard that! Thank you. People think the cartels and Arabian types are weird and cruel, and they are but, as you point out, historically all can be. I like the Indians. Some crazy stuff. But, I think, the thing missing in modern torture and death is the underlying message and purpose. It used to be, almost, about YOU, entering to God or whatever hereafter, and so you would 'sing your song' or whatever. It also was a completion of a life and understood that the inflictors would, eventually, go through it also. That is way cool about the skull drinking vessel being kept around and used for years!

The swimming around post beheading! Interesting. I've heard chicken do that. Never seen. I did once cut a head off a snake and kicked into creek and came back later and it was still twitching and trying to bite underwater! Weird but I guess not really because reptiles have different systems.

Juan

I doubt the truth of the swimming, but the rest of the story seems historically accurate.  The skull seems to have been lost when a hurricane hit Ocracoke during WWII.
