I fail to see any connection between the Thingmote, pints of Guinness or the days of the week(Saturday, Sunday, Monday are derived from Latin origins, not Norse) with the Norse story of the creation of the first humans.Dublin was made a city by pagan Vikings. It is still around, I gather, and serving decent Guinness at 'The Thing Mote', a sheltered establishment of some repute in that city.
The ThingMote is a reference to a mound where Vikings would gather to hold their judicial proceedings and debate issues of their day.
Can you set out the corpus of art and literature relating to South Polean creation myths?
