"As Gilens and Page write, "the preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy." In other words, their statistics say your opinion literally does not matter."
Eat like a Viking!
A new Viking Age cookbook hit the shelves last week: An Early Meal — a Viking Age Cookbook and Culinary Odyssey. A quick glance through the table of contents reveals sections on ale, rose hip mead, cheese, boar stew, calf’s tongue and peas in a bag, as well as the more intriguing, cooking pit groat, kettle worms, pickled turnips and herring and oats. The forty-four recipes should keep you busy for a while. Why not pick up a copy, fire up the barbie and surprise your friends with an authentically flavoured meal of spit-roasted lamb’s heart!
The authors are Daniel Serra, an ‘experimental archaeologist’, and Hanna Tunberg, described as ‘one of the few authorized judges of beer and whisky in Sweden’. They’ve also set up a Facebook page for the cookbook.
An Early Meal is published by ChronoCopia Publishing AB.

I really want this whole thing in transcript or quoted, it’s perfect.

Where you goin’, babe?
May the strength of Thor
And the wisdom of Odin
Be with you wherever you walk.
May Frey´s abundance
And Freya´s grace
Bring you good luck at all times.
May the wealth of Njord
And Skadi´s strong will
Be yours as long as you live.
