valhalla bound

The whole “"fighting cancer makes you a warrior and Valhalla-bound!” rubs me the wrong way.

I don’t want to go to Valhalla. I’m not interested in being a warrior. Valhalla isn’t the only afterlife destination and it certainly isn’t the ideal destination for the vast majority of people who aren’t at all interested in constant fighting and feasting.

Hel is not bad. Folkvangr is not bad. Ran’s hall is not bad. Reincarnation is not bad. Inhabiting a grave mound is not bad. Inhabiting a mountain is not bad. Possibly going to another deity’s hall is not bad.

None of these are bad. 

They are just different.
