My answer to the Loki arguement.So I was thinking about the old Loki argument the other day. Is Loki good or evil, it's the question that's been asked by scholars and fans of the Norse mythology more than any other. And it is a testament to Loki's trouble making abilities that people still argue because of him.
There are a lot of people who are incredibly certain on the subject in both directions. I know a lot of people who adore Loki and would argue with their last breath that he is a good guy with a bad destiny. (I've been on this side of the argument for a long time.) There is plenty of evidence in the texts to support this. Every problem Loki causes he fixes and many he doesn't. With out him Thor would not have his hammer, Odin would not have his spear and Asgard would be a very different, and not better, place.
And then there are people who think it's obvious that Loki is evil, and they have plenty of text to back them up on this. Many say Loki starts off okay and then becomes increasingly mischievous unt
Symbols - Part 1
The most striking is that in almost all symbols are in various parts of the world without at least many of certain cultures have come into contact with others, and each of these cultures built a virtual monopoly on theological symbols, gods and objects. Pentagram symbols as the most diverse cultures is a symbol of protection, designed to ward off evil spirits and also to destroy them, but some cultures it is believed that it is also a means to invoke Satan. The dragon is more symbol that also exists in different cultures is usually associated with beings of darkness that comes to torment mankind causing chaos and destruction, but for some it may even be a talisman that protects against evil forces and can also be one of the signs most strong ever created by man. A natural phenomenon like lightning also does not escape the rule of the association, in Ancient Greece rays were the purest form of divine wrath of Zeus and Indra in India could be expressing her joy, but for us Westerners can

Breaking the Myth EP1: GypsiesHello World, this is Trinity with Breaking the Myth. Today’s myth will be: Gypsies!
First: what is a Gypsy? A Gypsy by dictionary definition is a member of a traveling people with dark skin and hair who speak Romany and traditionally live by seasonal work, itinerant trade, and fortune-telling.
So now that you know that let’s begin with the myths. And the biggest myth and I hate to break it to ya is: Gypsies are exactly like what you see on the TV. That is wrong on so many levels. Yes we do like their shiny things, yes the fights are bad, yes some tribe do carry coins, yes most of us are Roman Catholic, yes some of us dress slutty all the time, yes our ways of child rear are harsher than your, yes our children are raised a whole hell of a lot different, and yes we have our drama like everyone else. No not all of our stuff glitters and sparkles every which way to turn, know not every single one Roman Catholic, no not all tribes dress slutty in fact most tribes are very

let your snake tongue slither

and wind my hair in between your fingers
like broken guitar strings.
