    From here, a funny comic about Finns vs. their fellow Nordics:

    I am an orthodox Christian, and I think y’all ought to be careful with the Nordic imagery. I watched the Battlelore “Third Immortal” vid, and it is rooted entirely in pre-Christian Ugaritic mythology. Nordic myth is so powerful that the early Christian missionaries did their best to wipe out those myths, because there was absolutely no way to redeem them or use them as a preparation for the Gospel.

    I am a white guy, of course, and there is something about these images that definitely stirs my blood. It is a very powerful sensation. But it is the power of blood, and the blood is dangerous.

    Something to think about.

    You forgot to tell us to stay away from sacrificial meats.

    Wait, does this mean horse sacrifice is unChristian?

    I didn’t do it. Nobody saw me do it. You can’t prove anything.

    In that case, thanks to whoever-is-not-Matthew-who-didn’t-do-it. 😉

    Thanks! Sometime soon, I’ll add recent additions here, and remove some dead links, see if I can figure out what some of them were, too.
