Don't take this wrong- but I LOVE that you have to do rewrites...
Quite a few of us look up to you a great deal, and it's nice to know you're not perfect either...
No, not taken wrong at all :) Here's what went wrong:
Bardic 1:5 - I misread the question and answered a question that it wasn't asking. Then I tried to argue that my interpretation *could* have been correct, which Raven shot down immediately. When I went back to re-read it, I saw he was totally right.
IE-Myth 1:5 - I answered the questions, but certainly not well enough. In fact, re-reading, my answers kinda sucked. I even went over and above the question (using three cultures instead of two), and Raven still called me on it and told me that I needed to expand a *lot*. He was right.
IE-Myth 1:8a - I was a dolt and left out half my answer. It ended witht he MacDonnell citation. Totally under 100 words, totally missing a second culture, and totally my fault.
IE-Myth 1:8d - This was a re-submission based on the fact that I mis-linked the page, and so Raven couldn't get back to it.
And, while I cited all my sources with in-text citations, I didn't submit a complete bibliography (just kept putting it off), so all but three courses failed to pass.
So, yeah: I'm just as likely to mess up as the next person.
Though speaking of re-writes, my next order of business is to re-work the DP, because my DP writeups on my page? They suck ass. :)
LOL- yeah- only YOU would voluntarily re write your DP!
You need more hobbies! *wink*
*smiles* People keep reading it (some even point to it as an example of a good one, which it totally isn't. . . I barely scraped through on my DP), so I gotta do something! :)
Surprised you didn't talk about soul/body duality (or the lack thereof) when you discussed the Norse/Scandanavian myths. The burial mound/grave is also considered an important point of contact for the living and the dead.
It wasn't uncommon for German immigrants, or even families of German descent who had been in the States a long while, to say that the dead resided in the grave.
