Rapaire:

Your play on the word "decade" is far too abstruse and too many times removed from the ordinary experience of your readers to have any impact as a humorous effort whatsoever. Never mind, that's how we learn. By the time you die, you will at least be able to deliver a good punch lin, with any luck. Keep plugging.

LOL! You know, it's a damn shame that Rapaire and Amos were born of the same gender, because they could have made a great traditional marriage couple otherwise. And think of the progeny that would result from such a perfect union...

Guess what, Mom!

It's raining again! It did yesterday too, but that was just a little spit. This was a hearty, full-bodied, thunderous rainstorm. We'd actually gone a couple of weeks without any.

Strange year, deep in the heart of normally hot-and-dry-Texas.

I am sure you do, Rapaire, being so close in spirit to both camps. I unfortunately do not qualify for either greatness nor for unwashedness since I settled down several decades back.

Really, Rapaire. Possibilities, maybe, but only very far-fetched ones.

"Dunderhead" is a great word. It's even better than "chucklehead". I really think it must derive from rum drinking.

Definitions of dunderhead on the Web:

dunce: these words are used to express a low opinion of someone's intelligence

wordnet.princeton.edu/perl/webwn

The Dictionary of Americanisms offers: "DUNDERHEAD. Blockhead; dolt. The same as the English provincialisms dunder-knoll and dummer-head."

The American Heritage concurs in the possibility of the term deriving from doner, thunder, in Middle Dutch.

Why can't there be Neo-norse mythology? All the hairy little gods know I've seen enough warped and twisted Irish/celtoid, egyptian, greek and roman stuff out there.

I particularly liked reading the story of Morrigan and Osiris. It went into a lot of detail about the threefold aspect of Morrigan/Diana/Freya.

Rap: I am assuming nothing, good sir. ;-) I looked it up. You are the one who is assuming.

It means thunder in German too, as far as I know.

I think that the English term dunderhead might relate to thunder inside the skull...or it might more likely relate to drunkenness...since dunder is a byproduct of making rum. Yes, very likely it was drunken sailors staggering about and acting like fools who provided the inspiration for the first use of the term "dunderhead".

You really should read the link about the ship. It was quite impressive.

, it's a derivative meaning, based on the notion that some folks, naming no names, are so taken with the noises generated within their skulls that they lose perspective; they became known as "dunderheads", and by extension over time the word came to mean "fumbling or stupid". That's my story, and I am sticking to it.

As for my contributions to the history of Norse mythology, you are much too kind.

Sufferin' JAYSUS, Amos! You have set Norse mythology back ten thousand years with your bizarre ramblings.... ;-)

Now, listen carefully....this is the English definition of the word "dunder":

Dun´der
n. 1. The lees or dregs of cane juice, used in the distillation of rum.
The use of dunder in the making of rum answers the purpose of yeast in the fermentation of flour.
- B. Edwards.

Further to that, the word "dunder" in the Swedish language means "thunder", as in "dunderberg" (thunder mountain).

Here is a link to an article about the American ironclad "Dunderberg", launched in 1865. They did not name it so to indicate that it was stupid, Amos, they named it so to indicate that it was impressively large and that its guns thundered.

Dunner, of course, means "thin", while "Dunder" means dull or clumsy. It is a very different thing to say "Der LeedleHawk dunder ist" than to say "Der Leddlehawk dunner ist", as I am sure you will appreciate.

That "Dunnerhund" was actually a corruption of the word "Dunderhund" (see Philli and Mares, 1972, et al.) and is related to the term "dunderhead".

Some archeologists believe that the stone paintings of Kokipelli which are often associated with what many believe to be lighning bolts are actually being misread. The "lightning" these forward thinkers believe, is actually a representation of stairsteps - and "kokipelli" (usually portrayed with a huge erection) is a corruption of "caught on belly" - obviosuly a euphimism.

I believe there is a germane body of mythological referent in the Norse tradition, which raises interesting issues of common ancestorhood. The Scandinavian legends speak of Langer Dünnerhund who is variously presented as a half-man half-god, or as a full-god who occasionally shows up in man's form, typically surprising poor families by sitting down at their dinner tables unexpectedly.

One of the stories about this mythic figure involves his falling in love with a mortal maiden of great beauty, as beautiful as any sunrise, and coming down the golden stairs from Asgard to capture her from her poor family and abscond with her to a big party in Valhalla. Her beauty was so overpowering, however, that Langer Dünnerhund began to experience enormous priapism while seeking to make good his escape up the golden staircase back to Asgard. This affectation so encumbered his progress that the damsel was able to wrest herself free from his grip and escape back to her parent's lowly hut on the farm (a decision she regretted for the rest of her life).

Palaquin didn't make it as a gunfighter - so he hired himself out as a beast of burden.

Hmmmmm, Wasn't Longdoggi the Mayan god of the ball game pitz - derived from the Olmec precursor and very similar to the Aztec ullamaliztli or Nahuatl Ulama?

Sacrifices to Longdoggi I believe were typically sausages made of various unidentifiable meat products and lots of beer. A strange ritual food known as kraakirdjachkz was also consumed in prodigious quantities in honour of Longdoggi

His main passion in life is food. It's a simple passion, but one that never fails to give him motivation.

My main passion these days seems to be talking on this forum, and doing various stuff relating to model aircraft...neither of which causes me any arousal of the specific type you were referring to...
