Brainsforbreakfast, what exactly is that Roma Victor thing?

You are also a history geek who got pwned in Geography but blamed it on others.

What the guys kissed and made up on MT without the help of us? What a bunch of pussies.

My dad's new wife is Scandinavian and I couldn't care any less. I'm more into music of the Antiquity when it comes to ancient history.
Man, I get real sweaty after I wack my dong. Yeah, cause I headbang while I do, and I can't really "Jump" (haha ) like VanHalen in a dorm room, so I just walk back and forth....haha a couple days ago I was jumping up and down on my bed, with my pants down and my roommate came in when I wasn't looking, hahaha.

This is my band's page

Roma Victor is a video game.

Everything we know about Vikings tells us that they attacked unsuspecting and undefended villages, laid them to waste, killed the men, raped the women, and left with everything they could carry. Sounds like murderers, rapists, and thieves to me. Throw in the fact that they went around on boats and you've got the navy as well. And they're not exactly an undocumented people; we know quite a bit about them. What a gay argument.

However, Infinity, you could have kept this a lot shorter and less gay by actually backing up your claim when Soul disagreed with you instead of taking it as a personal assault and then making it a personal argument.

When writing it as Mjolnir/Mjollnir:

Myuhlneer (the uh like in turd)

It differs from country to country in Scandinavia if and what accent is used on the o.
Vikings are the greatest civilisation in my opinion.

Supposed to be the earliest highly advanced civilization, predating Egyptians and the Greeks, and from which many many cultures like Judeo-christian and Islam have borrowed heavily from, not just in their studies in mathematics and advanced form of writing that evolved into our current alphabet, but also in mythology. Ie: The story of Noa's ark is thought to have derived from a babylonian story that explained the giant deluge that occurred thousands of years ago, as well as the Bible's explanation of how and in what order did plants come into being is also detailed EXACTLY like it appears in Sumerian texts. A lot of the mystery behind the Sumerian(formerly known as Akkadian) civilization is that in a lot of their texts such as deeds, marriages, and land sale/trade, etc. they always make reference or homage to the 12 gods, which are never expressly indicated if they were actually present and human-like or if it was just a figurative manner of speech(also the number 12 is of HUGE importance in all indoeuropean culture, eg: our calendar, 12 greek supreme gods, astronomy, etc.). Some of their texts imply that human life on earth was imported from elsewhere, which is interesting because the Sumerians were a HUGE leap, with rich culture, complex buildings, advanced science and medicine, which was a HUGE and unpredicted social evolutionary leap from all the previous human activity predating the Sumerians. There was never any gradual ascent into the level of civilization they had, they just emerged out of nowhere.

Sounds like a big mess? If you find it interesting I suggest you pick up Zecharia Sitchin's "The 12th Planet", followed by some of his other works, but the 12th planet will keep you entertained for a long time, I'm rereading it for like the 4th time now, so much info to digest.

Yeah exactly, we have Neanderthal Man for hundreds of thousands of years, and overnight, an incredibly advanced and sophisticated civilisation was born in Ancient Sumeria circa 3600 B.C (thereabouts anyways). How did this happen? The theory that modern homosapiens were genetically engineered by beings of another planet is fucking wild, but intriguing.

My uncle introduced Sitchins work to me and my Dad, he's pretty fanatic about it. I'm really digging it. So is my old man. He even bought the next book in the series.

Ancient Sumerian Civilisation gets my vote.
