Some folks wonder why Christianity supplanted the old Viking religion. In the Christian religion you get to relax when you die. Going to heaven is like going on vacation to Florida… forever. But the Viking afterlife is just a training period before the apocalyptic final battle, the Ragnarok, takes place. In Valhalla, every day the heroes wake up and fight to the death, honing their battlefield skills. It’s not much different than military boot camp.

In other words, Christian dead people are a bunch of lazy wimps.
