Why I love Icelandic Sagas

    Where else are you going to find names like this?

    Ofeig Clumsyfoot, Ivar Horsetail, Gudbrand Knob, Orm the Wealthy, Harald Shockhead, Halfdan the Black, Thorir Long-chin, Geirmund Swarthyskin, Onund Treefoot.

    I think we need to adopt names like these for our members. We could have Cyrus the perfect, Pengwuino cheesecooker, Moonbear sheepkeeper, Zapper pinbuyer.

    Help me come up with new names for our members in the fine Icelandic tradition.

    You can just call me "hypnagogue the half-Icelandic" :tongue:

    Coincidentally, I just found out my folks got a new parakeet and named him Tryggvi.

    Maybe I can get them to expand it to "Tryggvi world-crusher" or "Tryggvi the ominous." Stay tuned.

    What do I have in common with an aquatic bird that builds its nest on cliffs near the water?

    What's wrong about being deep??
    It is to be in the possession of the essence of mystery.
