In Norse mythology, troll, like thurs, is a term applied to jötnar, and are mentioned throughout the Old Norse corpus. In Old Norse sources, trolls are said to dwell in isolated mountains, rocks, and caves, sometimes live together (usually as father-and-daughter or mother-and-son), and are rarely described as helpful or friendly. In the Prose Edda book Skáldskaparmál, a scenario describing an encounter between an unnamed troll woman and the 9th century skald Bragi Boddason is provided. According to the section, once, late in the evening, Bragi was driving through "a certain forest" when a troll woman aggressively asked him who he was, in the process describing herself:
"They call me a troll,moon of the earth-Hrungnir [?]wealth sucker [?] of the giant,destroyer of the storm-sun [?]beloved follower of the seeress,guardian of the "nafjord" [?]swallower of the wheel of heaven [the sun].What's a troll if not that?"

Do you think jwegner should take his wet cardboard box full of shitty t-shirts, chuck them into the ocean and re-evaluate his life?
