Where else to ask? The other online community I frequent, Diablo forum, is quite toxic!
Reading IMDB's user review[^] of Vikings[^], on that second page I see many interesting negative reviews.
I am thrilled to know (really, no sarcasm! ) that the movie depict Roman law more than (as it should) German law, or that there are no fjord in Denmark (the theoretical location of this movie's setting) and this is more like Norway (ok I knew that one, but didn't know Ragnar Lodbrok was a Dane), etc, etc...
But really.. if this is the reason they can't enjoy the show?!
I feel sorry for them!
Rule #1 to being a curmudgeon: You can always find something to criticize. The measure of intelligence/quality in the person/thing being criticized is strictly a function of how hard one has to look. This simple rule makes it really easy to filter the wheat from the chaff.
Well, hang on a minute. This is produced by the History Channel and was supposed to be docudrama so historical inaccuracies are kind of a big deal. If it was produced by SyFy and written by the guys that did "How To Train Your Dragon" that would be different.
I was driving my car with this 4 years old kid , my cousin's little son. He kept on fiddling with the audio player, aircon buttons & whatever was there on the dashboard. Quite several times he jumped my arms to press the horn by himself. It was highly annoying, he was uncontrollable. Then he wanted to do something with the gear , when I stopped him , he swiftly moved to pull the handbrake. I just totally dislike kids hyperactive behaviors like these. I'm not sure if this is coming from their DNA or it's because of bad parenting. Anyway, when he tried to do these I told him. "Boy, if we are going to pull these two things (gear, Handbrake) we are sure to crash "
He replied me , "Oh we are gonna crash, then we reach god ".
I think my idiotic cousin has equated "Death" to "reaching god". I think many people get tired of answering their kids and end up throwing some rubbish explanations to critical questions. How dangerous is this if the kid mistakes dying as reaching god, when the entire family spends so much time saying God is great, God saves us all, and blah blah & those stuff. The kid is so happy about death.
What would be your answer when a kid asks what happens after we die. Or simply put, "What is death"?
Starting to think people post kid pics in their profiles because that was the last time they were cute - Jeremy.
