Now I know what you're thinking, "a tale that tells of a knife, is not a tale that's worth the telling!" and you'd be right, if this were an ordinary knife. This was the knife of Black Alex Mackey, the greatest pirate e'er to sail the eight skies and seven seas. The man who held the air nhostage and plundered the waters themselves.
Legends say the knife was cursed with a terrible hex by that which he had taken the blade from.

Thorsson stood in the center of a limestone cave, his right hand stained red and green with paints made from crushed rocks and plants. He held a brush of wild horsehair as he stood, deep in thought, staring at the wall. He had begun a mural depicting a hunt, with herds of bison and woolly mammoth moving like streams across the wall. In the foreground stood the images of several muscular warriors, long braided hair hanging loosely, waiting patiently behind an outcropping of rocks, viewing the gigantic beasts, spears and arrows at the ready, at the sublime and religious moment of the hunt in

Not every vampire can trace his ancestry back to the one who was responsible for all of us, the dark ones of this world. Some believe it was Dracula who was the first of our kind. But, I know that there were ones even before he existed. I, Dante, can trace my lineage to the one who sought eternal life billions of years ago. The legend goes thusly… In the age of the Cro-Magnon Man, there was one such man that feared death and wished to gain eternal life. One night, he prayed by the fireside and was given a vision. At first, the vision troubled him. In order to receive eternal life, he would have to give over his soul to the

I never saw your insides
What you were all about
But then I heard your precious words
And now I have no doubt
They say that you were violent
A man without a cause
I guess they never really knew
The man that had no flaws
They say your death was certain
But proof is what they lack
I don't believe a single word
I know that you'll be back
Now my friend your gone
But you'll always be a G
I hope to hear your rhymes again

AsgardHe sits in his hall,Asgard3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
An eyepatch over one eye,
A scar to prove his thirst for knowledge.
The honorable dead eat at his table,
He watches them absently,
His valkyries barring entry to those unwelcome.
He is the god of war,
But he hungers not for blood,
Only destruction for his foes.
His worldly knowledge,
Acquired by hanging himself,
And trading his eye,
Is lent also to magic,
As he strives to save the world.
His name inspires fear,
Crows watch his back,
He is Odin.
Valhalla belongs to Odin,
Wise and powerful god,
But she holds the hall for lesser deserving.
Love and fertility hold dear to her,
Beauty in golden locks,
Henrietta: Wing Commander There was no getting out of it this time: she was fucked three ways to Sunday, and no amount of pleading from her father was going to help. Not that he was willing to do so.

I lie in wet grass looking up to the sky,
Blood rushes out and I'm going to die.
My vision is blurring, black clouds start to spin,
My enemies have won, theyve done me in.
Rain pounds my face soothing the wound,
Shield-maidens will soon collect me and the doomed.
I am in land far away from my own.
When will my fate to my family be known?
I am Einherjar, a seat in Valhalla waits.
Soon greeted by Odin at his pearly gates.
To those I have slain Niflheims doors open,
And to my slain brethren the hall of the chosen.
My best friend stands above me a tear in his eye,

The trees groaned and crackled in the distance. Thorsson nodded quietly to his protege, a young man named Honor. The lad was eleven years old, with a bushy mop of blond hair and a skinny body wrapped in a robe made from various pelts. His father had died the previous Spring during a bison hunt when the herd turned suddenly and unexpectedly in his direction, trampling him. Thorsson had taken the boy under his wing, realizing the importance of having a male figure to pattern himself after in his fathers absence. His mother had been gratified at the prospect of her son being raised by

The time of Ragnarok is fast approaching,
Lokis troops are already encroaching
Heed my words oh valiant warrior,
For the war will storm the plains of Midgard,
Even the Gods are not safe behind the walls of Asgard,
The time of vengeance is almost at hand,
Rains of terror will surely strike Odins land
Oh my beloved einherjar,

Is it completely incomprehensible that there existed a much higher level of science and technology in antiquity and prehistory than is generally supposed? In 1998, the Learning Channel showed a mini TV series called Quest for the Lost Civilization. It held out the possibility of an advanced civilization long, long ago, which was exceptional in its understanding of astronomy, calendars, and the construction of Monoliths.
Very little remains of this possible civilization, but remarkable similarities in Egypt (pyramids), Cambodia (A
PHYSICAL CHAOSENERGY, THE MONAD, THE DIVINE, AND A CHAOTIC UNIVERSEPHYSICAL CHAOS4 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
Albert Einstein (1879-1955) was the first scientist to discover the relationship between, rather than the equivalence of, mass and energy (E = m.c^2, the relationship between mass, energy, and time).
In science, energy usually is considered essentially lifeless, and life is seen as a curious accident in the midst of the cosmic accident (Big Bang) that the universe commonly is considered to be.
The idea of energy is older than its name. Even in the time of Galileo (1564-1642), scientists recognised the existence of some constant quantity involved in certain physical problems. In the late
