Sorry but vikings didn't 'pop up' in Scandinavia..(they might have popped up on your Eireann shores tho ;)

There have been people here all along, they just evolved into 'vikings'...we have stone monuments dating to around 3500BC, on the field next to my house a settlement has just been dug out dating around 1000BC.

The culture is so unique to this area that it obviously wasn't influenced by nomads.
By "pop up" I meant as far as their recorded origins go. From what info I could find it seemed like out of scandinavia sprung these fierce blonde haired blue eyed warriors that few seemed to know about or write about previous to AD793 when the raidings started being recorded. Obviously they didn't "pop up" like oh nooo! Vikings are growing up outta the ground!!! Silly. lol I know there have been people in every land for thousands of years, I just wish there was more solid research into the evolution of us blue eyed blondies before the pillaging. lol :D

thats a great post thx for sharing the only wrong thing i saw the recorded 3100 bc they actualy found lately that the pyramids are like 10500 bc minimum and actualy think they been repaired more than once wich is prolly related to the 50 000 years dread but yeah who care right its old as fuck no matter what haha
Your right, when I wrote 3100BC it was more in reference to the beginning of the first dynasty and the unification of upper and lower Egypt, after which their civilization is very well-chronicled. Thank you for that info! :D

i had read before about Shiva's followers wearing "ja Taa" i was curious and asked a man from India what ja Taa means. He looked at me blankly for a moment ( my pronunciation must have been really bad) so i wrote it down for him. He said it means "Shoo go away". In India the language is very diverse. Each village can have it's own variation of the language. so it could mean something entirely different in different parts of the country...I don't know. but i thought it was interesting.

haha....it a problem of pronunciation nothing else "go away" would be more like jaataa than jataa and "t" is pronounced slightly differently in both the words so it can be pretty confusing i m surelol
