East Anglia? More like Nova Anglia. Musing about the linguistic carryover that shaped the Yankee Twang. It didn’t evolve in a vacuum, nothing does except for the decisions made by the Gubmint. Somehow, because East Anglia wuz Danes, and Yankees wuz English, we have a circle of life which has prompted me to be forever locked in the beginning stages of learning the dansk.
A team of archeologists from the University of Memphis that was rapidly called to the site, confirmed that the ship is most certainly a Viking Knarr, suggesting the Norse would have pushed their exploration of America a lot further than historians previously thought.
The heavily damaged ship was found near the confluence of the Wolf and Mississippi rivers and lies on a private property.
It has a length of about 16 meters, a beam of 4.5 meters, and a hull that is estimated capable of carrying up to 24 to 28 tons, a typical size for this type of ship.
Knarrs were naval vessels that were built by the Norsemen from Scandinavia and Iceland for Atlantic voyages but also used for trade, commerce, exploration, and warfare during an era known as the Viking Age, that goes approximately from 793 to 1066 AD.
This will likely be my last entry on a series of essays regarding Vilhelm Grønbech’s highly underrated but very good work “Culture of the Teutons” and focuses on fleshing out the passing details of Clan structure made elsewhere.
It seems almost trite to discuss the Clan apart, in light of Grønbech’s writing. However, he does, and he knows by far better than I. So. Onward. Tacitus notes that the Germanic by nature seeks for large Clans. That in his old age, happier is the man with the most kinsmen.
Nobody can have possibly escaped the daily climate hysteria fed to us by the media. “We have 10 years to change things before it’s too late.” “The glaciers are melting.” “The earth is getting warmer by the day.” “The Gulf Stream is grinding to a halt.” “Large parts of the planet are going to become uninhabitable.” “The deserts are expanding.” “The Arctic ice is melting – and sea levels will rise by several meters.”
New threats, demands and pressures from the establishment are mounting. Billions of dollars are being spent on new technology, research and projects. Anybody who questions anything is immediately branded a “climate denier” – an epithet of abuse almost equal to “racist” or “holocaust denier” – and effectively silenced. According to politicians, the climate threat is the number one political issue of the modern day, as well as being extremely profitable for various interest groups. Coincidentally, the climate issue happens to go hand in hand with pro-refugee and anti-racism activism. Celebrities and politicians compete with one another as to who can be the most “radical” on the climate issue, in order to get as much attention as possible. Behind these public figures lurk powerful globalists, who harbour their own agenda.
The less influence white people have on geopolitics, the more cultural marxists and colored people will destroy the planet!
For decades, Russia’s oil giants have been polluting parts of the country’s once thriving landscape, often in secret, spilling oil onto the land and into the Arctic Ocean, poisoning the water and destroying the livelihood of local communities and Indigenous Peoples.
When supporters are encouraged to organise and fight for a better future for the Nordic countries, the following response is sometimes heard: “When the system collapses, I will join you.”
This poor excuse usually comes from well-meaning people who have not yet summoned up the courage to do something. As a defence mechanism to legitimise their own passivity, they have persuaded themselves that they have to wait for things to get worse.
Seven time Denmarks Strongest Man Flemming Rasmussen competed at World’s Strongest Man a total of five times, and narrowly missed out on taking the win in 1997, when he placed 2nd overall. I catch up with Flemming to find out more about his successful career in the sport, and what he’s been up to since his Strongman retirement.
World record loglift 182,5 kg (400lbs) (Guffi) 1998 The strongest man in Denmark
Flemming Rasmussen (born March 12, 1968) is a former strongman competitor and powerlifter from Denmark. He competed in the World’s Strongest Man contest several times, finishing in 5th place in 1995 and 4th in 1996. His best result came in 1997 when he finished 2nd, but he had been leading by four points over eventual champion Jouko Ahola before the final two events. However, sixth place finishes in both of the final two disciplines allowed Ahola to overturn the deficit. Flemming won the title of Denmark’s Strongest Man 7 times from 1995-2000 and in 2003, and won the DanishPowerlifting title in 1993 and 1994. Before competing as a strongman, Rasmussen was Danish ten-pin bowling champion.

World’s Strongest Viking 1997
Flemming Guffi Rasmussen was amongst the best in his time. He was the best at Loglift, Stonelift, etc., amongst the best at Atlas Stones, Truck Pull, Squat, etc. and only had Deadlift (330 kilo, I believe) as his weak point.
Mikkel Leicht Højgaard (03-04-88) from Thisted, Thy-landet in Denmark (6 X Denmark’s Strongest Man) is in many ways the opposite of Flemming Rasmussen. Mikkel is amongst the shortest strongmen, Flemming was one of the tallest and heaviest. Mikkel is one of the best at Deadlift in Denmark, but like Flemming very good at Loglift. Mikkel definitely has the potential for being the world’s best at Loglift. Sadly Mikkel has not been fulfilling his potential, the last few years.

The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) allegedly backed secret experiments into schizophrenia on 311 Danish children, many adopted or from orphanages, during the early 1960s, according to a newly released documentary.
Danish Radio’s documentary ‘The Search for Myself’ accuses the US spy agency of supporting the experiments at the Municipal Hospital in Cophenhagen. The studies were reportedly investigating the link between schizophrenia and heredity or the environment.
