    no- they were in norse legends- were also called the norns and they spun each man's life thread and wove it into a fabric which predicted what would happen. and yes there was a terry pratchett book called that- not as good as the one where they go abroad though

    Since we have had treads about almost every aspect of UKL members, I thought I should see who people think are the weirdest.

    That always means that they're not - truly mad people think that they are perfectly sane.

    The Pratchett novel is a blatant piss-take of the three witches (who, I think, are called Wyrd sisters at some point) in Macbeth. That would be another fairly significant one of their appearances, although it is debateable whether Shakespeare actually wrote all the "Double double toil and trouble" bit.

    Id nominate supreme Emperor. Becuase he comes on here, abuses us, says he wants to eliminate any trace of himself in this 'pathetic' forum, and yet comes back time after time for more.

    ...I heard of two things about supreme emperor by reputation...One was that he was funny...the other was that he habitually deleted his all his posts...alas only one of the things that I was told turned out to be true

    Yer, but Greek and Norse myths are very alike. They practically have the same gods, same legends
