Re: Odin taught runes to Freyja? Hmmmm............?
- Hey, no one said Jarl was any good with the Runes... He was a brat,
but at least he had a Modir and a Fodir (sorry, couldn't resist).
Obviously, my relatives were the less fortunate stepbrothers of Jarl
and became serfs... So why would I have anything nice to say about
that? Yes, we're still jealous... Yeah, he's probably a member of
Skull and Bones by now, after being on the Fencing team in Highschool
and the swimteam and archery... he won the dart contest down at the
pub this year, again.
And as for Kon, well I didn't vote for him. Like Fodir, Like Kon,
one term and your done! You know, this is where the Runes fell apart,
Kon didn't preserve the eloquence of the Runes. He took it for
granted that everyone knew them and didn't bother to hand them down
properly. Obvious to me that the Runic Lore was entrusted to the
wrong bunch, or my sneaking suspicion about Rig was true and that he
didn't really have a handle on the Runes... dunno.
The only thing about Rig is that he was nice enough to help out Thor
and gang up on neigbors that borrow tools and don't return them. Now
that Thor has his hammer back, maybe he'll come over here and help me
hang some pictures on Saturday. The painter just left, so now I have
to move the dining room table back.
Gotta go, its Friday night and our normal dart tourney awaits...

- Rig schmig. Funny paraphrase of Rigsmal and all, but
the poem is (at best) from the late 14th century and
is most likely a parady of the social order of the
time and not any representation of pagan belief or
structure (even though dear ol' Dumezil hung an awful
lot on it....)

character staves or anything associated with them in
the lore. In this case, there is nothing to show that
what was taught was gealdoring or anything like it.
More likely counsel for a ruling class, which in of
itself is a shot at the elite of the time; which
claimed to rule by some "mystery" of divine right, all
of which is in a christian context.
