I have read the Edda ( the Viking Bible), and the basic message was: drink more, kill more. Actually, the Eddas are more about how to treat visitors than anything else.

And the same people that are always there protesting executions were there again tonight, I'm sure. All two of them. The only time people ever get excited about the death penalty is when the media gets involved.
