I found an interesting YouTube video on Icelandic Asatru. Enjoy, discuss, and comment! (and consider moving to Iceland with me)

Hmm. Can't watch it. No sound card.

A funny story about Einbein Einbeintynsson, rthe head of the Icelandic Asatru group.

A U.S sailor thought it would be a jolly good jape to get married to the girl he met in the bar two hours before, by Einbein.

So, not having told Einbein the TRUE circumstances, Einbein married them.

The sailor AND the Woman thinking it was all very jolly and a good joke.

UNTIL, some years later, back home, the sailor tried to get married to a local town girl and found that Asatru weddings in Iceland are TOTALY as legal as you can get. :badgrin: :badgrin: :badgrin: :badgrin:
