If Vikings were here today, the sounding of a distinctive horn in York would have created chaos.

The ancient instrument, blown last night, signalled exactly 100 days until the end of the world, according to Norse mythology.

Legend has it that the Norse God, Heimdallr, would blow the mythical Gjallerhorn to warn of the Viking apocalypse, also known as 'Ragnarok'.

Well everyone's gotta get on the End of the World Prediction Bandwagon and we cannot leave out the Vikings.

I guess Winter really is coming. ;)

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

They blew the horn which is supposed to bring about ragnaroc?  Thanks for betting for the rest of us that it isn't true.  Now I have to dust off my armor and get back into Viking shape to help Odin and achieve glory.  Actually been waiting many years for this so about time!

All these end of the world predictions by  people who died out years ago!
How many Mayans or Vikings do you see around today? no signs of them predicting their own demise.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Hey....shut up

This isn't any ordinary end of world, with saddness and pain and suffering.

I think I'll be camping at a Pagan festival that weekend.  Should be interesting.

You are soooooooo wrong on that one.  It is the decsendants of Vikings that rule the world.  That's why the Mayan apocolypse didn't happen,  they were weak, but us Vikings are strong.  HAIL & KILL!  DEATH TO FALSE METAL!  THE END IS HERE BY ODIN SO GET READY!

Haha, well I learn something new everday.
The Mr Cohen and Epsteins and now the Chinese are all descendants of the vikings.
Anyway, I'm game for this, just supply me with a real armour dress and i'm there.

Would you also like a winged steed and a mystical bow?  (I know a guy)

For some reason this story makes me very happy for real.  I'm really feeling all Demiao like

I seriously doubt the authenticity of any connections to ancient Viking mythology of this article.
