We Need to Read What the Bad Guys Say
"Paul how significant this is another thing, so you know me. I have this background from Central Europe because of my parents, but I spent the last 20 years in the national security realm dealing with counter terrorism and what I did was I studied the bad guys Al-Qaeda ISIS. I read what they wrote and shockingly because nobody in the U.S. government actually read it. I taught that to our operators, our green berets, intelligence, analysts and the FBI. What does it say about strategic culture that people didn't even pay attention to the speech that Putin gave a week before the invasion, this pseudo history verbal diarrhea where he said, well, you know, Ukraine never been an independent country. It's Russian. It's always been Russian before the duchy of muscovy, the Vikings landed there who became the modern Rus people. Because that tells you what he's going to do and that tells you he's going to take the whole country. Why you are the guy who's written the books, especially dupes and now the devil and Karl Marx. It's not rocket science. It's not brain surgery. We need to read what the bad guys say, don't we? Yeah, we do. And in fact, somebody that I wrote a lot of books about Ronald Reagan, Ronald Reagan all the time actually red marks actually red Lennon actually. And this is funny because Reagan, of course, was portrayed by the left as an idiot, as somebody who didn't read. And Reagan would say all the time, he would protest, well, you know, I'm only quoting their own documents, which I've actually read. And I reminded right now, said quite a bit during this period about Reagan and the 1980s trying to block the construction of the Soviet Siberian gas pipeline. And there were two strands of it. One of the strands he tried to delay the construction of and the second one he tried to block the construction of altogether. And this was something that even Margaret Thatcher wasn't with him on. I mean, this is now declassified. We actually sabotaged the software and the electronics for that pipeline. That's exactly right. Yeah, sorry about the shameless plug. I wrote about this in my book, the crusader. And we sabotage it. It was an explosion that you can see from space.
Why Has Russia Set Their Sights on Kyiv? Konstantin Kisin Explains
"Let's start with trying to cast away illusions as to what's going on. I've heard from those who have connections to the region that it's not obvious. Not all ethnic Russians in Ukraine are pro Vlad and not all ethnic Ukrainians are ready to grab an AK and shoot Russians. It's more complicated than that. Will you explain why Ukraine? Why the mythos of rodina of the motherland of rouge people is so intimately tied with Kyiv. This isn't just stopping EU and NATO membership for zelensky. This is a deeply historically and the nation itself has deep propaganda value for the Kremlin does it not. Well, the history of Russia of the modern Russian state originally dates back to the 9th century when a bunch of Vikings came over and they started essentially a trading post or a colony in what now since then has become Kyiv. And that is where the entire history of that part of the world originates from. And since then there have been various historic shapes, shape shifting and changes and borders and all sorts of things. And Ukraine has always been a piece that has been disputed by a bunch of local empires, whether that was the Russian Empire, whether it was the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, where there was Poland, all of these nations had had an influence in that region. And Ukraine had always been fought over by the different sides. But of course, there are other things and one of the reasons I was able to predict that the invasion would happen that it wouldn't be limited to the two breakaway so called breakaway regions in the east was because Vladimir Putin told us exactly how he sees it and I encourage all of your viewers and listeners to go and find a good translation of the speech he gave on the eve of the invasion. Because in it, he lays out exactly his vision and his vision is very simple. He believes that at some point during the existence of the Soviet Union, weak leaders like Vladimir Lenin and Nikita Khrushchev and others made a series of weak decisions that split the Russian people that split off a piece of the Russian nation and glued it together as he says with portions of what used to be Poland and Hungary in the

Judge Sentences U.S. Capitol Rioter 'QAnon Shaman' to Over Three Years in Prison
"I can not get this story out of my head. When I heard last night that the guy that the prosecutors called the public face of the capitol riot. He's the guy known as the QAnon shaman.

The Truth About the Abortion Pill With Dr. William Lile
"Folks, I'm talking to doctor Lyle. You remember I wrote a veggie tale episode lyla kindly Viking. I only wrote half of it. But doctor Lyle spells his name differently. It's L ile.

You were just saying doctor Lyle, you were just saying that if somebody makes a bad decision, we have medical options to help them. And you're saying that there are women who, in a moment of panic, they have easy access to an abortive patient, I guess. Is that what it's called? Sure. I mean, and first we have to define things. Words matter. Let's talk about the morning after pill which is indicated for 72 hours after somebody has had intercourse, which is wrong, but let's talk about the abortion pill, which is indicated for up to 70 days after the first day of the night. See, I didn't know this. It's one of the reasons I wanted you on because a lot of this stuff gets so what is the first one called the morning after pill? Morning after pill. Okay. So somebody has sex. I'm gonna go whoops, maybe I got pregnant, let's take care of it and they take a pill. But the other pill and what does this other pill called? It's called a mip of stone, also known as RU four 86. Okay. How do you remember that number? Did you ever work in a restaurant? Yeah. All right. So when the Shep says, hey, 86 the meatloaf. What does that mean? It means kill the meatball kill it, meatloaf. Are you forbidding? Are you four 86? They didn't plan that, did they? They didn't. But that's planning. Are you four 86? So you have been pro killing. Okay, so the RU four 86 pill. You said it's up to 70 days after conception. After the first day of the last menstrual period. So that would be ten weeks gestation. Most of the ultrasounds for our new OB patients where we can see the baby moving, heartbeat, listen to the heartbeat. Are usually between 6 and 8, 8 weeks along.

"vikings" Discussed on Fantasy Focus Football
"And that was lamar jackson who tested positive for cove in nineteen for the second time and when john harbaugh talked about him returning to the team he said you know he experienced symptoms real symptoms and in in the case of a player who had contracted cove nineteen. He was now away from his club for an extended period of time. Now it was not during the season but it was during valuable. Preseason time where he was not working with any of his receivers and of course then they had a couple that went on to get hurt with soft tissue injuries. So i look at the ravens offense in that situation. I go well. They really haven't had a chance to get in sync with all of their main offense because they haven't all been together. Let's leave it there. Let's move forward from kirk cousins and a quarterback spot at the vikings to alvin. Cook before we move off of kirk cousins is going to talk about the offense general and ask you a question okay. What do you think the. Vikings defense is like this year. Because yeah because i would say just in general that i think a lot of the fact. That kirk cousins finishes qb eleven and justin jefferson and adam peel had the kind of seasons. They did again not taking away their talent. But i think that in mike zimmer ideal world it they are not throwing nearly as much as they are. They aren't as many shootouts as they are. They aren't as they aren't down as much as they were in march of last year. Much more conservative ball control offense and so we think adam phelan justin jefferson or super talented. Of course we do. Data cooks gonna is my number two running back no matter what but i do think that. If the defense is a normal mike zimmer defense and not what they had last year. I do think it changes the fantasy outlook of jefferson and feeling. I'm glad you asked it. Because i went back and looked okay. Incur cousins has moved. The vikings for three seasons sir and his numbers have been relatively close. Year-over-year the passing offense has been relatively efficient year over year. He's always a very accurate quarterback whether that's because of the throws it is making or as natural accuracy. This offense has been kind of comparable for three straight seasons even though the defense last year cratered relative to where it was previous seasons. So it's not as much concerning to me especially for those two wide receivers. Where i'm going to fall back on the talent right. Feeling one of the great touchdown makers in the nfl and just jefferson. I think we all believe a true superstar. Cook thursday call. That's something to look up do a favor. I'm gonna ask thirsty. Callo look this up. Just how. Many games in which the vikings were trailing last year and you know by more than seven points how many like last year and where the numbers would have been much better than where they were in previous years. And i was surprised. That kirk cousins passing yardage was not i think it was right below or right above internal eighteen but i would have thought five hundred yards difference six or seven extra touchdowns. I was surprised by it but anyway but there was also a season there would dow dobbin cook. Missed some time right. I mean so they probably had to throw more. And i also think by i mean like listen stuff on digs and we now we now certainly know what kind of talent stuff on digs is stefan digs has top three fancy wide receiver in the nfl. Ability stefan digs never had the kind of season. Justin jefferson did last year with the vikings. I'm i'm just saying. I do think that if it is If if it's a better defense. I think you can lower the expectations of the vikings often slightly. Okay kyle has it real quick. And then we'll wrap this up dalvand cacao. What's the answer about. Matthew's seven point deficit question. Vikings ranked thirteenth in number of offense it snaps when trailing by at least seven points less. So that's i think average but more middle. There's all right to that had the same instinct. So i think it might be more stabilize than we. Maybe our mind logically would lead us to think all right. We're gonna come back and talk about davin cook star in his own right.
"vikings" Discussed on Fantasy Focus Football
"Right we do head to the nfc. North got babies undermined the graphic to show brady at quarterback for the vikings. I don't think that's really amazing. Breaking news more. Ready to the vikings spiking. Let's start with minnesota. Vikings and the minnesota vikings coming off a very very disappointing seven and nine season. However it was not because the offense the offense is actually pretty pretty good so matter of fact they were at a bunch of players that finished at least as close to starters or a surefire starter at their respective positions. Kirk cousin was quarterback kirk cousins quarterback eleven last year over nineteen fifty points per game. Think anyone would guess that nobody no one. He had a very quietly very productive. Fantasy or and no one's aware of interesting though matthew is i was looking back on it. And if he had kirk cousins your quarterback last year. It was fine. There were really weeks weeks especially at the end of the season. He got red hot and seeks in sixteen and seventeen. It wasn't always dominant right. And i feel like because there are some quarterbacks that have a higher chance of upside weekly. There's probably ten or fifteen of those kirk. Cousins is not being discussed is like a frequent star in fantasy. Are you comfortable if you walk away from your draft and twelve team team league twelve team league fourteen league with kirk cousins your starter where you to patient on quarterback at that point i think you were and the way that it makes sense and this is something that's been brought up on on fantasy twitter as well so i don't wanna take credit for this but and i apologize for who i put this out there but 'cause but i think this is look at what the vikings are doing early schedule wise. So they start at cincinnati at arizona. Like does scare you right but arizona's also good offense Versus seattle in week. Three also middle of the pack roster didn't scare you know then scary at all home versus cleveland cadets. A tough one then week. Five versus detroit week six at carolina. They've bind week seven or you're going home to dallas. It isn't until week nine at baltimore that you really start to get scared of their schedule again. I think cleveland's defense is going to be pretty good. And like i said arizona and seattle are middle of the pack but but positives are both have really good offenses so the point is that we think the vikings are either going to have really good schedule either. Really good defense to play against or they're going to have to keep up because the offense they're playing against is going to score points. And so if you draft a justin fields trae lance and you're waiting for that player to become a starter kirk. Cousins makes kind of a nice gap that you can pair with them and obviously you can get them very late. Yeah you certainly can. And kyle knows that last year in. Only half of his games was kirk cousins. A top twelve quarterbacks. A little bit of a jekyll and hyde season from kirk cousins last year. But it's kind of expect it right. That's why he's ranked quarterback eighteen through twenty two on the espn ranks. Wants to jump in here on kirk cousins and the vikings at large. Well the reason being that. I'm getting asked this a lot on social media. People are talking about. Are you altering any of your strategy for fantasy. Football based on the cova one thousand nine situation with various players. Now we know that the league has as of the other day ninety two percent rate of vaccination amongst players. But they're clearly some players who've chosen not to get the vaccine and they haven't all been identified but some have essentially self identified because we've been instances where they've had to isolate already and they've made their stance pretty clear one of those players being kirk cousins. So i thought this was a good time to just remind people of what some of the differences are the protocols are different in a number of ways for fully vaccinated versus not vaccinated individuals in terms of restrictions around travel at cetera. But i think what's important to note is if there is a high risk close contact Which has a long definition but it has to do with proximity to someone who is kobe. Nineteen positive in the case of a fully vaccinated player. They're not required to isolate even though they would undergo testing to ensure that they have not Also tested positive but for an unvaccinated individual who has a high risk close contact. They're required to be away from the facility. The club the team for five days and they undergo serial testing and if that testing continues to be negative after the fifth day. They can return. But that is the reason that during training camp you saw the minnesota vikings without virtually their entire quarterback room because one of those individuals tested positive. The others were deemed high risk close contact and had to stay away for five days so understand that we will not know necessarily everyone who is or is not vaccinated but for people who we know have opted not to vaccinated at least up until now that is the risk should they be a high risk close contact or ultimately contract cove nineteen. I think it's hard sometimes to talk about this. Without sounding glib cl or crass about it and i don't mean to say that kirk cousins health is any more or less significant than somebody. Like patrick mahomes or josh allen or tom brady who talked about weekly started. But i think that from a strategy perspective. I don't know that. This alters anything specific to kirk cousins for me but speaking generally is there a strategy alteration. If you're aware of a player who has been clear about his intentions to not receive the vaccine. I guess you can use it as a tiebreaker right. I mean you testifying his point like you know there's there's in theory greater risk of that player potentially missing time Or being penalized on some level. And so so. Yes i guess i would use it. Maybe as a tiebreaker sorta depends on the player. Right right depends depends on the player and but the truth is is that it's just a guess i mean we're we're none of us know you don't i mean there's so much that's unknown just in the general world about about about covert about the delta variant about about the vaccine's like it's like and i'm not downing science i'm not by the way i've been vaccinated. I wanna be clear about that. Like you know so I don't want anyone to think that. I'm trying to knock the science or anything like that. But i'm just saying like it's an evolving story it is. It is an evolving story and so to base your fantasy football drafting off of something. You may sort of think is tough because it's just there's just so much known about this story. I guess to ask that question directly. I might use it as a tiebreaker. If a player has been very public about their their intentions to not get the vaccine because potentially they're at higher risk but it's a violent sport and every player is at risk. Every single plus feel can ask a question real quick and as fair to say if it wasn't quarterback eighteen and he was quarterback three it would be a bigger conversation but because sosa homes or alan that i feel people are probably thinking about it. Much more prominently. Because you don't wanna wake up on saturday or sunday morning stefan and find out that your quarterback is dealing with something so just to give you sort of another example that we had that we dealt with during training camp this year..

Like many didn't have to do something different. He'd reach a crossroad. We saw him. I don't think we saw enough of him. Contemplating religion or questioning. The gods william to switch and mickey sema said. He was always in his mind. Maybe it was just a thing that he thought you know might as well. I've lost my brothers. What can i do now since Unfortunately this'll be the last time when told me about this show. Michael hurt's is working on Vikings vala so we will definitely pick it up from there but that will be one hundred years after the setting the golden age As queen ingrid said in the narration So let's finish off with al general thoughts. General feels in regards to vikings role. And then we'll finish off analysis or a loved eh. I think it's one of the shows. Just because who were given in bits we've talked to extend it as much as possible so that when we started watching it could change the whole thing but then even at binging it felt really side going through the episodes in realizing the all slowly winding down and kept on taking breaks just because all they motions in the fields. It's been such a big part of where we don what we've done as a custom where we started a where we introduced a what i introduced to katy before all vests to stop watching so everything was coming to a close. He was emotional. And it's just one of those shows that if you've reached this point and you watched it give it a go because he can't go wrong with it and albay does some people out there those claim. It's historically inaccurate yet. Tom of history of ataullah. You're here for the think. Part of it is is to have the entertainment value and it brings in ten foals. Oh absolutely so much kevin. Ub oti journeys yeah. I echo everything that i said. It is a wonderful series much better than it's a honda full life and compare this you mate because one is wonderful in one is actually. It's not bad. It's just not a christmas film which we've talked to battle if you want to treat yourself if you want to tend to lies yourself. This is absolutely the series to do it..

"Dollars those of moment for the fans. Oh absolutely it. It's one of the purest things reflecting on the relationship with lag as well as ragnar. Well he chose. He chose to go with lagerfeld's a kid he did. There was many beautiful flashback scenes in the final season and call offensive. As i call it spanking my ass. Yeah but i. I absolutely love lagoda and i love how they treated her story. Aqua so much respect and she deserved so much because we knew there was going to be a wall between the brothers so it was nice to just lay logothetis arrest letter have a moment and then completely full into the mind In rampage fully agreed. I think one of the most disappointing things for me is that i knew probably this was never on the cards one. If for just all the fucking brothers going along and that would be a disservice to the show. Because they're all distinct individual characters except for uber he was a terrible kaban. Culpable now like you said when we covid snowfall. At least i'm consistent in how i felt about the characters when we first recorded Our episode vikings but let's go through The sons of ragnar. And i guess as we're talking about h son in the proximity characters. Let's see what we think sort of traits that they inherited from ragnar. So of course. We're going to start with king blair underwood ironside historians. If this is the early record of vikings tv sure in the future definitely the warriors sort of chops from regna he. He's not and adventuring spirit and the venturing solve adventure spirit from rollo. Who i think might be the dad. Yeah we did talk about ninety rollo. Dadi rollo indeed. We did talk about him. Why did you mention that. I hate that storyline. Just fucking fizzled me. But they did bring him back only for him to be chased away like we don't need you back to six to be a year ago. We saw at least two more role and what he would do with the brothers or at least with beyond. Because you know how close they are he will serve. Viking the likes at points. He felt more viking than ragnar definite expected him to play a bigger pop. It was disappointing. There he came. And i think one of the hospital the angle. Try to play as maybe he was the father unleaded. Step out on riquna which did all right. Well it's not it's all it's all like rumba didn't do it did it. A million when you're out in no way don't think i'm not. Yeah i guess it's just one of those red but unfortunate moments in regards to characters that we wanted to flesh out a little bit more but in regards to be on we have followed baby beyond since the start of this series and to see him grow into the man that he became And the immortalized man and legend that he will continue to live on at least on. tv screens. I think he was dutifully addressed in every way he was he was. I think a lot of the times we had more of a connection. At least for me..

"The vikings this was like they hit the jackpot in the beginning. They used to do these quick. Hit and runs because lock you'd mentioned earlier. Everyone's necessarily patriotic and one country. So that these small forces in the that ragnar had one hundred or more ship shows you. What charisma he had. You could probably drink than anybody who fought bit in. Because that's what together but what that did was often hidden raza lewinsky to winter somewhere because this is really lucrative after linda's farm and those rights so they used to over winter the in around april. May they start. How they're going to collect all the beauty array they rights and they did it in sanya the math that did it on the northeast coast of england and even in southern england based it. Just wait and the people used to watch and say you know watch these gods of a winter and be so scared and the other big thing is they could build an army to. The army was flattened by alfred. The next summer they had won twice the size said was incredible. new people. yeah. They used to travel far as well. I mean greenland is famously named greenland. Because eric the red tried to attract people to it even though must the ice and snow not a very hospitable ostlund in school greenland correct and yet many people and settled. There was a very famous viking community that was established there in the eight hundred two nine hundred eighty and his son eric's son leif. Eriksson is supposedly the guy who discovered north america. And he's one of the most famous of the vikings he heard a story about another viking was blown off and ended up in this fabled land to the west Essentially these guys up the western hemisphere to europe many years before columbus at least five hundred years before columbus supposed to have done it and there is reputed to have been a village that was populated by leif eriksson and his family in newfoundland canada. Which is it's incredible. And th they found evidence in the nineteen sixties that could have been vikings equalled vineland von land because they had while vons but is big speculation. 'cause there is very cold and they've never had grapes the so they could have been ever tops of fruit that they would make into top of one but they stuck around the for a while and they got to know the area but then they started being watched very carefully nephew skirmishes with local crops in candidate tom so then lift and they never really settled in that area. Yeah i mean still if you consider that in the year two thousand these guys had already manage to cross the atlantic in by hopping from iceland to greenland. And it makes me scary. Because the north sea and up north near the arctic circle is frightening. And some of the sees that you have a even just crossing from from denmark. Norway to the british isles was submissive feet. But what i found interesting split three ways. It was almost like today. Sweden was more closer to russia. So then you had the vikings at settled or reuss russia's named after the viking. Yeah and then. They're the regions and the danes when cooled at then but they came into europe and the british isles and also across the ostlund and they were named the norseman and the became the normans and the normans and king. Roller famous king of the norman coast of france. They were eventually the people who conquered england. Yeah when his grandson. I think he was willing to. I first. great great great grandson. And i found incredibly interesting because ultimately in the end alfred who is the proper english anglo. Sex anglo-saxons the bit so he'd manage these sons managed to keep it in place but they weren't necessarily that went to successful as alfred. Any i think ethel read the unready. Which is ironic. That's right He he and he's lost control. Again of certain parts of england on the second wave yet cannot cannot came down he was If i can remember it was herald bluetooth. That's right herald breeze names. A great tooth name comes from its right. Through our cell phones it's heralds or the h. b. if you look at symbol full bluetooth exactly herald. Bluetooth had kanoute. All sentences. Last night was was the son of harald bluetooth and then he sign was kanoute and he son was actually a very good english king. Yup in he very competent. Well is the vikings the whole story in england as well because there was a guy called gerald adrada who was the last king to try and conquer england. He done really well. in europe. He managed to win territories all over northern europe and he was widely feared and respected. And i think he got to am vicious and he decided to conquer england landed in northumbria and was met by herald gudmundsson who was already worried because he was going to be attacked from the south. By william the conqueror his cousin but he managed to fend them off at stamford bridge quite decently. He managed to beat them. Properly and and herald adrada died in that battle and that was really the last big gospel of the viking empire or the viking age. Because after that through william the conqueror obviously their legacy continued and their legacy on earth is enormous. You mentioned their connection to russia. But the vikings have had a tremendous influence on western civilization. Ever since then but even if you look at just had a so he went into rushing and then he went down into constantinople For the bosnian in and he was part of them with a sect breath or was rome. Because that's really what he wanted to do Contrary to the coastal town that it was i think he attacked sicily because he was crofty. Did they used to catch birds that lived in the city that catch them outside the city and attach pitch to them and light them on fire. The birds would fly back into the city into their nests which were flammable and sit the whole city on fire. And that's how you got them to open gates of very crafty while they were definitely frightening and they were definitely not the people. You'd wanna meet an open battle. There were brave all to vella one day where they could feast with odin fraternity or they really wanted to do was fought and never pick feast. So yeah and then. The guy's one hundred percent in the not the all the injuries would heal. So this is what hell was. All the injuries would heal the next morning. That could fought again and in a drink and be healed. And i really were worried because any fifty percent off the the vikings killed in battle. Actually we into so. The other fifty percent was quite sad to blame. It was said there really had to fight hard to get into villela really really interesting history. I mean we can't fit everything in here. There's so much we could talk about. But the exploration the the raids the fighting the fact they had women warriors as well which was known. The rates daughter was more brutal than life. He was the she was frightening. Listen there is some very very scary people. What if you go back in history and you climb your time machine. And you put the dayton wrong and you end up in in viking norway. You're.

"For hundreds of years northern europe would wait in theory for the next viking rave. Never sure if god would spare them now. If you google vikings you'll find a tv series about a man called ragnar loath brooke and this guy was supposedly a famous viking in history. And there's another series cold norseman which is a comedy as opposed to vikings which is a drama and the irony is that vikings may have been much more like the comedy series than they were like the drama series in that these people have only just recently come to light as being a lot more cultural and sophisticated autistic creative agriculturally ahead of their time exploration geniuses and all of this is really any come to light since the mid to late eighteen hundreds but when people hear the word viking unfortunately what you see is hagar the horrible battleaxes and pillaging raping ruining all of europe. So we're gonna talk about the vikings and it's hard to squeeze all of this into one episode but antony meteoroid i have done are to try and compile a list of the most interesting viking leaders and some of the stories about the vikings which i think will make you interested in baps. You can find more information if you like it yourself and let us know if you've got something that you'd like us to focus on in future episodes but really there was no doubt that the viking contribution to civilization is enormous. There was even a viking age. Which was somewhere between seven hundred and thousand ad. I enjoyed it. The sweet spot for me. Because i've always loved the roman empire and if you look at this. The vacuum pints sit cases. You know it's comparable. And the impact that the head on europe on the british isles end and what they did in greenland and ostlund. It was incredible and i loved researching it. You know you have to really concentrate because there's a lot that happened in two hundred three hundred years in the time that the head the two eras they call it well. Let's begin with the origins of the viking. People musty from scandinavia. Modern denmark norway sweden iceland and finland and they were really survivors in the beginning. They were small-scale farmers. They never really had kings they had different tribes and different and those chiefs were completely independent of each other and if they could they would fight with each other and take over each other's tribes and amalgamates but they never really had one king and for a very long time. They will opportunists as soon as the land ran out and they went in a particularly fertile. Warm part of the world so there was only so much land. You could farm. They realized the next best thing to do was to build ships and these were incredible. Feats of engineering. Actually these ships were were shallow. They were quite long. Go up as they could go into rough international waters special that clinker lapping boards. That made them waterproof absolutely an quick very quick and they realized that if they hopped on these ships they could take up a genetic raids in various other places of the world and they could just let the places and the obvious targets at that stage of the world. were probably the monasteries. Because europe was in the dark ages but the monasteries with these beacons of light and they all had lots of silver and lots of other treasures and plenty of people that could be carried back as slaves. Now that that just talking about what at them move so you mentioned the fact that they ran out of space so that that's one of the reasons but a big reason was charlemagne was very effective. He was the roman emperor and he did a very good job of getting christians and converting and he did tackle the northern germans. They'd went regions equations and for that matter the north men and was quite aggressive. There was one story about the spiritual tree that the head in norway and they came in and burnt it down. And i think they were very aggrieved so that played a part in political instability. All of those things become a melting pot and opportunism as talking about Said well look we're gonna we're gonna go and find some booty well as soon as as charlemagne died really there was everything broke down in europe and the kingdoms old deteriorated in size and power and the vikings also saw an opportunity plus the monasteries. Which as i mentioned earlier we're rich. Were also not particularly well defended. Monks are not soldiers. And it's much easier to kill ten months than it is to kill ten soldiers. They would land at places like lindisfarne in england and it could just be a massacre but the monks in the monasteries never expected anybody to attack them. Because all the was that had previously i mean they. They were christians. I said look. Let's not take on the house of god or whatever zine religious respect but the vikings. Didn't i mean these are the united states a little one one and the woman rights and they did. I mean they famously. They would go in with battleaxes. You can picture them. While i'm saying these two kind of bladed battleaxes swords bab big shields wore horns on their heads they did have all of that going for them and they must have been frightening then at capture all the people that take the women back because women were in short supply died young. They're dying childbirth. You know norway was very cold and not particularly hospitable. And they'd take back women from all over the world and raped them and then produce children with them and keep them slaves and also what they used to do is is a somebody had passed away. That was haas standing in the church. They used to see that. This is very important to the people in particular monitoring nice to kidnap that co-ops and technical beck's of that could embezzle money. Whatever you wanna call it. That took the corpse for him along with block. You mentioned women the children so they were they were they were so scary because the crystal looking straight into the devils i. They religions went far apart later on as they believed in most of the north mythology. That has come down to us. You know odin and thorn freya and all those famous gods and goddesses and they had a sophisticated system of mythology may also had sophisticated family structures. They had interesting little villages. They had feasts and holes and all the things that you'd expect vikings to have and they were i suppose also the founders of of whole languages communities which have existed to this very day but if you were some terrified priest and you saw those sales on rizal man you would run and scream and hide and try to get the hell out of there and then needed somebody like alfred. The great yes. You stand up on a biggest story to that. But he was one of the very few especially in the early years that stood up and actually fought against them. Well one of the most famous early vikings was this ragnar and even the french chroniclers wrote stories about him. He apparently was so audacious that he even managed to commander fleet of some few hundred ships to go up. The san river from the atlantic from the english channelised effectively all the way to paris. They threatened paris. Took on the army's there the king charles. The bold was so afraid that just to get rid of them. He gave them six thousand pounds of silver to just go away and then of course what happened was they got. The six thousand on wasn't back if we can get six thousand pounds silver. We could probably get some all. They kept doing it and they went with these boats up rhythm into most of europe and unfortunately for everybody in europe europe is failing navigable by river so.

"In game of thrones because of how it ended up playing out But that's not factual vikings is based somewhat loosely. We lose creative lessons. Creat- creative also. I'm sure they've. I'm sure they've written on a feather and you know some sort of papyrus cool thing to the vikings backing the i- hundreds if i can send if they can modify this storyline but it's loosely related on the law. Regna lost local depends. He spoke different ways. We lost brooklyn law. He's sons and the the the ventures at adventures at the had so you can't modify the story and a lot to make it on historical rain thing. Yeah so. I was very content with how the story played out.

They also ate beef mutton and they did raise horses for food. Which of course eventually clashed with christians who did not believe in eating horses and much of society society during the vikings would hunt reindeer elk and bear. Bring them back to the earth fires since they were on the water. So much fish was a major part of their diet. Hearing was prepared dried salted smoked pickled and preserved Last of that would be great for long-term transplant. Oliva young. yeah all day. A lot of food was pickled Your favorite is in orbit was pickled to ensure that they had enough food to get through the harsh winters pickled fruits and vegetables last up to six months while salting and drying their meets added also months products are so long pillaging voyages. Yeah yeah they just took the food that was prepared already from home Vikings boiled their meets as opposed to my Mind picture of the slick sexy viking.

Okay so you took it flavored brian. It was really flavored. That actually sounds good schorr. It just became super duper concentrated over over days than the big like pot was on this on the fire.

"And not mall in the night okay Both meals were similar since there. There really wasn't a ton of variety of food It's really just referring to like the two meals by eight morning at night. Sometimes they had feast that took place on various holidays or major events like weddings and at the end of successful ratings. Could have feasts hardy time. Party that yeah. yeah so they they survived. The vikings survived such harsh winters and traveled such long distances that they were faced with no choice but to eat a diet that would sustain such activity they needed to feel up fast between raids of sleeping towns and then have enough energy to get back on the ship and sail away. Get away before a car. Regrouping of cable to coming up. Yeah so that's a lot of energy. So i'm thinking okay protein. They had to be operating. Yeah so their food was healthy. Actually and fresh apparently even poor viking. Eight much better than an english peasant. It seems like the viking diet was a model of efficiency and innovation really In a time when cooks had to make the most out of some very limited ingredients like.

"I found that sailing. Innovations allowed the vikings to sale even further than ever before like going to batter newfoundland rain like staying in that england in the european area allowed them to really travel. Yes see the world conquered over rated. Yeah i found another sort of like gory. Early date for a viking raid or since he ended with that like in seventeen ninety. I saw that a group of danes cells. Seventeen ninety the right. Excuse me i'd thousand-year said it sounds so weird. Yes seventy year with three years. Three digit and so in seven ninety. A group of danes sailed to the isle of portland in dorset which is southwest england The danes were mistake. Were mistaken for merchants by a royal official but when asked to come to the king's manor to pay a trading tax on their goods. They just murdered the official. Oh my gosh. Yeah who knows what ensued after by. Am probably young right. Yes may not likely you may have i think about the every. Game of thrones no. I didn't. I couldn't even watch like the first episode with all the heads. It's being like. On the pikes about that scene. I was like. I don't think this show is for me. I read a lot of them in the night. He killed up too many characters. But there's oh the red wedding. Have you heard of that a well for anybody. Who's into game of thrones chart the red wedding the unexpectedly. Just kill everybody there long. It's a revenge thing and yet it is. Just you're blown away when you're reading you're like oh my god they're killing everything you're talking about like big in under the guise of i'll compare your tax and then they just kill everybody just evoked the red wedding yeah. My jaw was on the floor reading it. So but all of these. Vikings seem so like handsome in my mind. How dare they be so violent. Yes i you. An attractive game like modern culture paints. The it's true picture toll. Strong burly with big muscles Wave rather blonde hair long. Curly like very well kept beard. I in my mind. Nobody did that. They actually really were wealth they did. They found comb used to us. They were actually very hygienic. Yeah right yeah. Which is unusual. Probably been yeah. You would think maybe not. Yeah and Anyway they were certainly more robust and muscular than the average person for both women and men in fact the viking man's appearance was more feminine than that of men and the women and other men. then yeah You're than than men up today. It they were more like feminine structured but women were more masculine structured so these ambiguous facial features. It was difficult to decide upon a viking skeleton. Like what sex. They were based on their recall. Isn't that interesting sure. Yeah they were a rough bunch the men and women because the fought the women too. Yeah they were tough lady. They were tough cookies. So how do they have the energy to survive in the cold sailing. Huge wooden ships and pillaging community around that portion of the globe. Like what did they say. Yes and how did they transport it. Did you discover that. Yeah yeah yeah so. They were very busy. Vikings tended to only eat two meals a day. They ate their dog mail in the morning..

"That the vikings originated in the area of denmark. Sweden norway Though at that time they were not unified countries during this time as well. The vikings spread throughout northern europe eventually making their way as far as baghdad which i was surprised to entire where they. It's like warm down there. I know that must've been a shock. Yeah yeah I mean even just interest appearance. Not only the Temperature culturally a long. Did it take for them to get the i know right. They're like whoa. Who are these people. I know So they are. They traded in far tusks and seal fat And they even made their way to north america settling in newfoundland which i was so shocked. I need it all the way they are. Yeah with those long votes. I mean yeah. I don't know if the waters were calmer like up there. Farther away that they might have waited they might have come. I don't know but that's the way before columbus way before was so wrong. It's so many ways yes So when we talk about the word viking itself many historians perhaps wrongly associate the word. Viking with the scandinavian word. viking are so. there's the car the. I'm not sure if it's a silent would be there her Because i saw other words with an are at the end where i have seen them not with the are anyway so pronounce. Dr biking accent can imitate things. Pretty well So that viking. Her is the word for pirate but more likely the term is meant to convey travel. as in. the men would take time during the summer to go viking. Yeah that makes sense So it's like a journey to end the acid as Yeah as opposed to announce So what i discovered in my research is at the event that really truly marked. The beginning of this viking expansion was the raid on the monks at saint cuthbert in lindisfarne which is a small island off the northeast coast of england. And i mean there's a lot of accounts and it was kind of noted that the accounts are predominantly from the people that experienced the raids. And so the we're trying to make them seem particularly vicious in. Just you know plug ins horrible right. That's what i got a picture. So so it's not written from the perspective of the viking. Obviously so we're doing the opposite side but it has it was described as particularly bloody in the ferocious attack and they just kinda stole everything In the months you know. They were prepared their peaceful in their mouth. Of course so Yes they were unarmed and unprepared for this attack. Mum i know so. They did attack a lot of monasteries. So that was like something that they it to them. Yeah the monastery. I also found the labor. Yeah absolutely the architecture is similar. I imagined to their castle. Okay awesome like drew. The of course the architecture didn't draw you look at the shiny council. But i don't now Yeah i found that to And they will. They were drawn by the growth of wealthy wealthier. Places to go and take their buds rate them taking with them. They may also have been pushed to leave their homeland by population Lack of good farmland and Political strife arising from the unification of norway in addition..

"Laying Maxwell. CLAIMED GYSI Just laying whatever her name is. If you really think about it, dude if you were to go on a website like wayfair. Don't you think it's pretty fucking stupid that you have to fill out your information in order to get a package, you have to pay for it with a credit card, or however you pay with it. Don't you think that they would be able to fucking track you after the fact of you didn't in fact, order a child online. Again playing devil's advocate. I totally agree I posted fucking memes about it, but it's just 'cause jokes. It's funny, but like Eh posted. A whole spiel about somebody who talked about it, and like what it could be A. Wake up world, because like there's not saying it's true, but I'm saying. It's very possible that this could happen. Not Saying through Wayfair, but through other shaved coincidental that the guy step down and shed right so one hundred one hundred per Sambrana. That's what I'm talking about, but again it comes back down to these. Pagan beliefs of for example the Vikings thought that the human was the ultimate sacrifice to Odin, and and that's what a lot of people think like Oh. We're GONNA be. Blessed, and you know we're going to prosper if we sacrifice this person to our God and. I find that ideology so interesting because it's like the lengths that you're willing to go as a person as a people to achieve Antara respect this higher divinity sacredness. Right, that's that's what blows my fucking. Increased fuck kids because. They're like this is GonNa be good like fucking. God will like me Brad. There's two. There's two sides to that do there's people who legitimately get off on it number one? Obviously. They're sick. And then there's the other people that are again. These ancient scriptures these ancient believes these esoteric beliefs that till having sex with children brings them power, and the talked to different entities and stuff like that that will. have sex with these kids and there's demons. They believe in fucking Lucifer Bullshit. You fucking never know, but this is Kinda cool vikings custom. Acquired. Vikings custom required all free men to actually own weapons men that weren't fucking slaves, and they're allowed to be fully armed all times. The quality of one's gear would reflect their social standing, so they got a wealthy man will be fully decked out with a fucking helmet shield chain mail fucking in a sore, well poorer fucking. There's this literally a shitty broken sword. This got chips out of it. It's made out of wood. So, they would actually use spears actually when it came. To fighting more often than we think, actually which I thought was really weird. There were more using a spear style. Make so many of them. They were just checking them, and whatever fucking headed it hit, right? Guy Read anything about the museum crossbows either. Yeah our bow and arrows in general. About that either. That's interesting like Boeing, or you would think right, but maybe maybe they did I mean were fucking pirates, but who knows I know rich should've fucking out with the bow, and Arrow man flung shit across fucking chips and stuff, said cannons. So a lot of Viking men again spent most of their time farming yet and a lot of them brandish sites and not sore like the site the the. Thing not swords, and again somewhere pirates that would only step off the boat to burn villages and kill and rape people, but a lot of them were actually peaceful a they were just farmers, and they raise cattle, goats, pigs sheeps on their small farms, and they were just support their own families and one thing I found those those pretty funny. They skied for fun Bro. Shan to they develop ski. He's at least six thousand years ago. And they also worship the god of skiing, and his name was earl. I don't know how to say his as you. You are the skiing. WHAT THE FUCK THE SKIING! FUCKING! Yeah, yeah, that's weird, but that's what people were like saying. How like how they get around the issue? Fuck it weather, and all that fucking bullshit and they use skis, which is weird. That's how long it's existed that, but the thing is. You'd think if you had any rate mind. You eventually would try to invent signing point feet allows less friction right as as the first viking invented skis, or if they like I heard that he did for more like cross country to get to places, but I wonder if they're doing some dough, best tricks, awesome fucking cliffs. Like some Olympic team. BACKFLIPS! Now you were talking about how what we know them. As these kind of violent people that raid and pillage well a lot more to viking culture, there's a lot more of their culture than just like that bullshit. Because in fact like Viking Nobles, it were quite the dandies. They would show off their wealth in so close and fancy jewelry, and they kept themselves well groomed with Nice haircuts they. They call the reverse mullet West. They call it now, because like fucking. NOPE, no all business in the back party in the front and the principles of fashion were on hygiene, were passed down to regular folks as well they were pretty much, generally relaxed about a lot of shit, but it's funny how they did like like. If you richer be like checkup modules, buddy and might silk boxers. Yes, so one thing about the vikings were that they were very. Again as back then they're very big on hygiene. They showered or bathe at least once a week which is. Actually. A lot more. Jobs yeah because they would and they would People like Bay like once a fucking month and shed. Disease is in quid. fucking grows, but they also found and different artifacts when. You know uncovering different things that they were they were. Archaeologists would find. They found combs and different things for them to shave, and just you know things for them to groom themselves and again I. Just it's so weird, because like you think of these people thinks of these brutes, these barbarians, these crazy people. You wouldn't think that they would be you know grooming themselves me. Either they would actually like be like like they kind of had some style to them, and they used to fucking cut their hair and shit like that like I'm surprised even did that. Raspberry hooligans and shit like that, but I guess you kind of keep up with appearances, and like it's it's in their culture right? They WanNa fuck inmate with women. You know what I mean. They had a fucking. Their wives, but even getting into that It's pretty interesting. That Viking rules of family and coupling. R- actually less strict. Then most some in societies, even today women were free to live and sleep with a man without marrying him, and in fact she was allowed to do if the men was married to somebody else, so they kind of it was like. It was kind of like polygamy, but not polygamy like the women if they wanted to fuck other men, and they were allowed to divorce men, if there is like a good enough reason, and there's also no concept of legitimate or illegitimate children, whether born in and out of the marriage, a child had the right to inherit their parents property. They were basically like you said like two steps away from being a Hippie commune. Because of how they acted, women were lot freer than even you think like even a one hundred and fifty years ago. You know what I mean. You only get your marriage. Was Your status as low as you were married to a man? They were allowed to ask for divorce. They were allowed to inherit. Inheritances and stuff like that and they were regarded in society, which is a lot more than. Other people obviously the woman is always doing what's supposed to be in the kitchen. Make me a sandwich. Clean Right. Women couldn't vote, so what fucking year do. Whatever. Yep, we should have not. We should've kept that way. Though honestly that would be a lot better. Just fucking men make all the money. Just give me stay at home..
