KNICKERS—I love the British word, knickers, for ladies underpants. It has a gentle naughtiness without being vulgar.

from Eskimos building an Igloo. I wish I understood more about how these people could survive in such inhospitable climates. no firewood, no vegetables. They had very little to work with, but survived quiet nicely.
Berserk was a great warrior from Norse mythology, renowned for his bravery and for his fury in battle.

He gave his name to the berserks, the wild, frenzied shock troops of the marauding Vikings.
