fascists would be trying hard to be more cowardly

@Breakfast “Fear not the fascist; he is the consummate coward. Beneath the mask and riot armor, that state-made veneer of power, is a wailing, heaving toddler, told by men far more cynical than he that his tantrum is an expression of mythology and a defense of his birthright."

@DissidentKitty @kittybecca Fuck. Yes. I’m so mad that they seem to use Woden as some kind of shibboleth. Assholes, he’s the god of fucken Wednesday!

Why is the last word W_MR? I think the missing character is an A but I can't think of any letter (or even pair of letters) that makes a word

@Tetra @DissidentKitty Vamr. It's a fairly strong Viking insult, apparently. Though I forget if I should substitute the v for an f or a w in Elder Futhark.

@InvaderXan @DissidentKitty
Interesting. Honestly I learned runes off the inside cover of The Hobbit, so I don't know the proper... anything. They didn't have a unique symbol for V either now that I think about it.

@Tetra @DissidentKitty Tolkein based those Dwarven runes on Futhark runes (Younger Futhark, I think), so they're similar! But yeah, the character set doesn't map perfectly to modern English, so things like v need substitutions. Similarly to the Futhark runes like ᚦ [th] which modern English no longer uses. Icelandic still has the þ character though!

@DissidentKitty To be fair, Vikings were some colossal douche bags with all of the raping and pillaging and murdering you know.

@DissidentKitty Trying to prescribe meaning to runes is something that has annoyed me for a long time. It was the writing system of my home country for a long time, up until the 1800's in some places in fact.

It's still used in some cases (there are some modern inscriptions on builds documenting who built it and such things).

It's just a writing system.


@DissidentKitty We also have to talk about the Manji thing and recover it from those motherfuckers
