At one time in its history the French were so weak that they were bullied into making a Viking the Duke Of Normandy and letting the Vikings raid and pillage several Eastern French cities unimpeded. The honest Vikings kept to their word and decided not to sack Paris.
The Vikings were also fine shipwrights that build long oar powered boats called "longboats". These ships were long and thin, and despite their appearence they were very seaworthy. Despite popular belief, the Vikings never used longboats for combat, but as a transport.
Under Erik the Red they were the first finders of North America, but they didn't document it and therfore didn't get the credit. It is believed that the Vikings explored as far into North America as Newfoundland(east of Quebec, near Newbrunswick and Prince Eduard Island).
2. Mascot of Minnesota's NFL team. Note this teams is an an insult to the real Vikings.
2. The word could also be used to describe an action of destruction that deprives anyone from enjoying something, based on the mentality of "If I can't have it, then no one can."
Exp. of use#2: I know all you guys liked her, but I hate you assholes and that's why I vikinged the shit out of Misty last night. Good luck with that.
*Viking falls out of the sky*
Viking:I just split his body in half with a claymore while fighiting three ninjas and six pirates!
Guy1:*shits pants *runs away*
Vikings will eat you.
put your damn nijas in broad dalight in hand to hand combat with your average hieght average strength viking, your damn ninja wont have time to contemplate his attack before the viking rips hit thraot out and continues to mual the nijas corpse with its skull
pirates without their swords and guns=jack shit aka pansies
vikings need no weapons whereas the other two do, nijas require darkness and objects to mask their presence to be eficient therefor they would suck in open combat
one viking would gladly rush into battle with a thousand pirates and ninjas and take as many as he could before he died
