Maybe so ....... at least they are being now classed as Scandinavian, which is the correct word instead of "Viking" ..........Jimmy!.....JIMMY !!!!...hey ..... no matter how fancy or jewel incrusted yer weaponry is,todays laws prevent all the rape and pillage we would like to assuage OUR heritage. Bastards ...... just try droppin' your gear,daubing blue berries all over and going completely off the deep end these days !

Beatles, i said i was of viking decent, which is correct. Prove me wrong if you can. My family breed with VIKINGS the landed in Ireland. Ajd if they landed there they were viking. Not sure where from, but as i didnt know exactly, it is easier to say "of viking decent".

Beatles, i said i was a decendent of vikings, which is correct. My family breed with the vikings that landed in Ireland. As i am not sure where they came from, it is easier to say i am "of viking decent". Viking means "to go adventuring". Dont be a beastly and try to twist what i said to suit yourself, or just make up plain lies and refuse to provide proof. Anyway why argue over semantics.

Don't mean to be obtuse old bean but by claiming to be viking because of the Vikings landing in Ireand is a bit rich old boy.

Let me clear it up for you chum, have you heard the old '' i danced with a man who danced with a woman who danced with the prince of wales'' so by default i am of royal lineage , really old bean you need to get a grip a and a personality and a life if you have to take a dip in an obscure gene pool from 1000 years past then that is sad.

How pathetic is Sands he has to claim some obscure fact about the Viking landing in Ireland over a thousand years ago as proof of his blood lineage, you are a joke and a laughing stock.,

Jimmy my boy..... carry on in this vein and even I might begin to believe you are a paranoidiac.......... christ almighty son (even though he doesn't exist)... I merely try to defend you against those who bait and you've decided that I also twist what you say or make up plain lies and refuse to provide proof ........ and argue over semantics .......... I see no twisting .... I see no lies ....... and I also do not need to provide proof about anything I may say as I only speak truthisms for the pedantics who enjoy arguing over semantics. Y'see Jimmy,it's becoming quite plainly obvious that you believe that anything stated by your good self is gospel ... and any refutation is a personal attack ! So .... now we understand each other I must state again .... Viking is merely a generic term for the North Men ,whether Norwegian,Swedish,Danish or German . I suppose by saying your family (all of them?) bred with Vikings is easier than saying they were raped ?

By lies is was referancing beastly...dont be like beastly and.....was not calling you a lier. Also i dont think my word is gosbel. I admit when i make a mistake, but dont like it when others say i am full of it. I dont need to lie about myself or shit like that. That is why frau beastly has to invent shit to attack me with, as he is not able to do so otherwise.
As i said, the reason i say "viking" is because i dont know exactly where that bloodline came from in scandinavia. As yes most likely family was raped, but we also had "vikings" (has to say it jaja) marry into the family. Not all....norseman, went raping and shit. Quite a lot actually were looking for more land. My grandmother is from Iceland and that is how they got there, not for pillaging but for farmland. So dont think i was attacking you, i was just defending myself...and having a poke at the frau.

Jajaja, maybe one day. There is a few good "viking" festivals in scandinavia every year. They have some really good ones in denmark. Full on battle re-enactments, but very full on, even so then HMB. Also a good fest in switzerland. A few mates were just there at schaffhausen. Very good. Awesome jousting and shit. You would like my library. Lots of norse mytholgy, weapons and books on I.33 and other manuscripts. If you like that type of read let me know and i will give you some names of some good reada.

james, yo claim Viking descent because an Irish forebear sod farmer was raped by a Viking warrior is deluded! You are grasping at straws. In terms of 'Viking' in Eyre, they saw, came, raped and pillaged then left. The Irish are a race conquered and subjugated by all, for centuries. Sorry to burst your bubble
