My favourite story is the one where Thor gets dressed up as a woman for Freya's wedding. I also like the one where Frey first sees his wife. My nine-year-old kid likes the one where Thor goes fishing and catches the world serpent the best.
My favourite hero, who I always include in sumbel, since he's a real historic person, is Jarl Haakon.
My favourite creepy creature is Fafnir, that Sigurd slayed in th story of the ring, but there are sooooooo many good ghost stories in the Norse mythology!
My favourite book is Heimskringla, but really, one should start with the Havamal (part of the Edda).
As for what happens after Ragnarök, you will get many answers depending on who you ask. Some believe that the whole concept of there being anything at all after Ragnarök was something thought up as an influence of the Christian faith upon the Norse, while some do not. In other words, it really has to do with what you base your faith upon - historical pretence, intuition, and if historical pretence, which part (era) of history, as the faith has not stayed unchanged. To a large extent, the sagas were written down by one or more Christian monks several hundred years after Christianity had taken over, and so each one of them would have understood, interpreted and copied the story down differently according to their own cultural context. Even the creation myth differs depending on which version of what saga you read....

The story of Thor's fishing trip was my absolute favourite at the age of like 5, when I became interested in history. That one and the one where Tyr gets his hand bitten off by Fenris.

If anyone is interested myself and another guy are teaching the heathenry class at MysticWicks.com. It is a pagan message board and is free to register. I took over from the teacher who just kinda up and disappeared, we are currently going over the original lesson plan so if anyone wants to come join us. I go by Mjollnir there and the class is in the Circle of Teachings section.

Neat. When my friend went to college he signed up for a heathenry course, and as a field trip they went to a Heathen church. He told me it was creepy.

they translate phonetiacally, like the names of egyptian gods, or arabic words, where the symbols and letters don't quite match with roman letters, so the spelling must be based on pronunciation.

It's not a mummy, it's a helmet with chainmail covering the mouth, same one I have at home. What are you talking about?

Thats an English sign to the French because the English were such good longbowmen and the French would cut off their fingers if they caught any archers.
Its the peace sing with your nails pointing to the other person.

Nothing to do with Norse mythology.

Tell me about it. I woke up this morning and I shit a squirrel. I mean it. Literally. Hell of it is, damn thing's still alive. So I got this shit-covered squirrel down there in the office. Don't know what to name it.

Ratatosk. Duh. (LOL) Or Squirrel Buttkin, like Beatrix Potter's Squrrel Nutkin, only better.
Celtic, the difference in the names (Odin/Othinn/Oden/ Wotan) also have to do with A. what country the speaker came from (Wotan to the Sae/Saxons, Odìnn in Icelandic etc) and B what time/historical era (Othìnn in old Swedish, Oden in modern Swedish). Simple as that. Language is not static, unless you live in Iceland, of course.

Tomasz, start a new thread that you like to read some time. You don't seem to like most of the other ones lately?

You're right, I don't like much of anything that's been posted recently nor do I have any interesting ideas for some new topics.

My mama comment though came to me as soon as I saw the avatar before my previous post. Just couldn't help myself. Nothing aginst the guy/pic, he just looks like a baby.
