Bastard Nation

Bastard Nation is a North American adult adoptee political advocacy and support organization. It was founded in 1996 by denizens of the Usenet newsgroup alt.adoption Shea Grimm, Damsel Plum, Marley Greiner and Lainie Petersen. The original intent of the organization was to support adult adoptees in gaining access to their original birth certificates as a civil right, rather than as a vehicle for facilitating a search, which had been the aim of prior open records organizations. It is also distinguished from search-and-reconnection focused organizations in that it supports the full spectrum of the adult adoptee experience, including adoptees who do not wish to search and adoptees whose reconnections were a bad experience.Besides advocating adult adoptee access … more »


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

The Norsemen arise from the distant shores for glory and for gold 
To the battle 
Fighting foreign wars to crush their foes and raze 'em to the ground 
Set off 
With animosity heading out to overrun the untamed land 
They cross the line of the river Danaper - into the enemy lands 
Ruled over Kiev and Novgorod 
As they demanded Constantinople 

No army stopped their raids 
Blazed a trail through ancient lands 
In todays foraged Russian plains 
They built princedoms with their native hands 
And with pride in their hearts 
Crying battle calls to capture foreign lands 
Byzantium heard them roar 
In Miklagard they sealed their fate 

As they attacked Constantinople - war and bloodshed everywhere 
Forced to fight in Miklagard - Byzantiums heart - no mercy will be granted 
Warriors break through the enemy lines to end the slaughtering 
They lose the war through their own fault - ending their ascendancy 

Blinded by greed they fight on an on - walking straight into the trap 
Hail Tyr 
The god of war leaves them behind abandoning their fate 
Varangians show no mercy - the path they choose until their downfall 
Byzantium strike down the hordes - sealing their defeat 

Sail to the horizon - will you ever gonna reach your shores again? 
Stand for Odin's glory - all attempts of conquest were in vain 
Steel meets steel - Norsemen swords against Byzantine scimitars 
Their destiny is sealed - Valhalla won't await them
