    Natural History of Trolls

    The older the stories, the more information you can find regarding their daily life, and, dare I say, the biology and natural history of the trolls. Some researchers have even suggested, that Scandinavian stories about trolls are equivalent to the tales of Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Almas, and Orang Pendeks from other parts of the world.

    I started the movie. It's very good so far, but I'm still at the beginning.

    I loved the Billy Goats Gruff story when I was a child.

    I still like it, but the book was better.

I will try to find more in the way of interest to keep this thread as alive as the pantheon of Gods and nature spirits--that still exists within all of us, waiting to be kick started by text.
    Thank you OG.

    Likewise.

    Not even near....... It's about 3 gallons!


    Accent? Moi??

    No, no Señorita.... I is a chameleon.

    All joking apart, how do you get a sense of an accent from internet writings? I'm British, but within that is the usual mix of direct Celt and English (whatever the heck that is).

    I think, strongly, that I haven't been "here" before....... It's all new. I'm not a wise, old soul, if ya catch ma drift.

    ya, I catch your drift ... actually, I pick up from your writing ways of 'saying' things that I would use. I have an excuse, though ... I grew up in different environments ranging from southern to New Yorker and with a lot of reading, I picked up a box of ways of expressing things depending on my mood ...

    It's where people go to die. Based around keeping terminal patients comfortable and pain free until death, but not extending life, just for the sake of extending life.

    Your question brought to mind this scene from the movie Airplane.
