THE MYTHS TELL US HOW LOKI FATHERED THREE CHILDREN, HEL, WHO WAS SET UP AS THE RULER OF THE NETHERWORLD, FENRIS WOLF, WHOM THE GODS FETTERED, AND JORMUNGRUND, WHOM THE GODS DISPATCHED TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA.  THERE, AT THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEANS, THE MIDGARD SERPENT GREW SO LARGE THAT HE ENCIRCLED THE GLOBE, GRIPPING HIS TALE IN HIS MOUTH.  SO TERRIBLE HE IS THAT WHEN HE MOVED, HIS GREAT COILS CAUSE HORRIFIC TREMBLES IN THE EARTH, CAUSING EARTHQUAKES, VOLCANIC ERUPTIONS AND TERRIBLE TIDAL WAVES, SHAKING THE VERY EARTH ITSELF. 

BUT DOES JORMUNGRUND REALLY INHABITS THE FLOOR OF THE WORLD OCEANS?  WE HAVE ONLY TO LOOK AT A MAP OF THE OCEAN FLOOR TO SEE THAT HE REALLY LURKS THERE.  HE IS NOT MYTH!!!  LOOK AND SEE FOR YOURSELF THAT THE MIDGARD  DWELLS THAT THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA.
