I avoid most social media like the plague, so I'm not familiar with the trend. I have a friend though who has the equivalent amount of "Viking" ancestry as Elizabeth Warren does Native American, yet he takes his family to Norway on vacation at least once every five years. One of those goofs. Smh.

Big beards and braided undercuts on big fat dudes.

That's what it amounts to lol

Funny part is, I am of Norse blood. Long family history of conquering. Quite well recorded too. But unlike these idiots, I don't give a shit what my ancestors did because it impacts my life exactly none lol.

Oh, and I forgot you gotta throw in some Rune tattoos that translate into barwench unbeknownst to the person they adorn. :))

Well, yeah. I meant the 'royal' you. Not you specifically.

If I were referring to you specifically I would've titled the thread, "Rainer has a picture perfect ass".

So, this is like #wewuzvikangz? I'm not on any social media, so I don't follow the latest fagtrends, but my family does have verified and documented Viking roots (along with other European genes), albeit a thousand years ago. My ancestors participated in the Norman invasion of England, thus changing world history, and are listed in a historical account of William the Conqueror's companions. I rarely mention it, but I do think about it when I try to suppress my inherited berserker rage in traffic, etc.

Our families were quite close then. Mine took France, Italy and Jerusalem. Know what it got me? Dick. :))

Completely unrelated, but I walked by a viking rune stone today here in Sweden. It was from the 11th century and raised in memory of "Harald". It says in old Norse that "he traveled east and gave to the eagle", meaning he left enemy dead to birds of prey.

I want that on my headstone as well.

To be fair, these are the same people who were ninjas in the 80s, SEALs in the 90s, “Cage fighters” in the 2000s and have the barbed wire and Tapout tattoos to prove it. 

There is a certain sect of society that latches on to the latest tough guy trend because they are truly bitchmade, useful idiots. Same type of idiot on the other side of the spectrum that wants to be respected cause “I’m from Bushwick/South Bronx/Jamaica Queens etc...”

With all that being said, I think it’s hysterical, yet incredibly sad for grown men to cosplay anything in the hopes of being feared or respected; respect is earned by the things you’ve done with YOUR life, not by where you came from or who your grandpapy was.

Viking didn't wear helmets.

I am 25% Norwegian, my grandma on moms side who recently passed is 100%. I know a guy who after watching the Vikings tv show got a bunch of runes tattood on him to look tough (he is not Scandinavian at all) and every time I see them I just want to carve them off of his body with a knife and throw them into a fire.
