Week one-o-six of Operation Graphite – theme: Vikings.

Shock - Slaughter Pile

If we grade the entire middle ages on a curve, can we cut the Vikings some slack? Without them, there would be no Thor, or Marvel’s version of Thor with its creative liberties. We wouldn’t have the Icelandic Viking sagas and their rich, but violently brutal mythology. Sure, they were bastards, but they were genius bastards. There innovative ship building alone was revolutionary. When the news of the Kiev protests broke out, and ramparts of flaming tires illuminated images of medieval armored rebels, I rememberd that that was a city founded by the Vikings, and centuries later, those are still some guys not to mess with when pissed off.
