Phrase of the day #2: some wisdom

When terrorists attack (aka vikings) attack and the winter draws in; when the fragile economy crashes and it's all going wrong; remember this:

'This world is going quickly, and the end is nigh!!!!!!. (Panic!)' - ðeos worolde is on ofste & hit nealæcð þam ende ['Thay-oss wor-ol-duh is on off-ste and hit nay-a-lac-ath tham end-uh']

(this is what a famous Anglo-Saxon called Wulfstan wrote to his people in the early eleventh century).
