  1. Past Hour
  2. Rant and Rave without Repercussions [S7 Leaks Edition]

    1. Siddig was underused. 2. The sand snakes were even more cartoonish in the show than in the books. 3. Jamies plan to go to Dorne was so stupid that characters IN the show repeatedly called it stupid. 4. Did I mention the plot was stupid? 5. The sand snakes acting was terrible. 6. The fight choreography was terrible. A better question is, was there anything good about Dorne?
  3. US politics: Donny, you're out of your element

    I kind of expect something like this to happen, but not after just one month. Also, I'm wondering what will happen with Trump finally grows wise to the fact that Bannon is playing him for his own gains...
  4. Second strongest houses in each kingdom?

    Yes, I definitely think Manderlys are richest and most powerful. Had not Wyman been murdered, they would have done more to help Stannis. Boltons got the support of the Lannisters, that is why they are for now standing stronger...but not for much longer.

    1. Jon Snow 2. Davos 3. Stannis 4. Jeor Mormont 5. The Hound
  6. How the Sixers won the DeMarcus Cousins trade without doing anything. Divac tells the press that he "had a better offer two days ago." And when you realize this may have been a big factor: So you trade away your one value piece because the batshit crazy owner has a fixation with last college season's Jimmer of the month.
  7. The point is that teams like Boston were clearly not interested in brining on a locker room murderer like Cousins.
  8. Rant and Rave without Repercussions [S7 Leaks Edition]

    She's back to square one anyway, House Martell is extinct. The house of her paramour, who she wanted to avenge by killing his brother and nephew. Seems stupid.
  9. Exercise and Fitness: sticking to resolutions

    Thank's that's what I'm using it's pretty good! I'm eating less and exercising a lot more so fingers crossed lol I just am totally clueless about fitness...and *cough* health in general and wanted to know if it was possible lol
  10. Rant and Rave without Repercussions [S7 Leaks Edition]

    Yeah but Siddig said the idea to kill of Doran only came after they declared Dorne a failure after Season 5. So what's crucial is, remember when we were all deriding it after S5? What didn't work then?
  11. Pokemon Go: Generation 2

    Evolved a HootHoot today...I think that takes me to 32 of the newer ones, yet none of the babies...
  12. Top 5 Favorite Characters (POV vs non-POV)

    Yes, I'm just really invested in the Hound's storyline. I brought it up because I would actually really like some POV chapters for him in the future. I also think he is the gravedigger and I wouldn't mind too much if he saved Sansa but I would not like it at all if he died doing so. And I do wonder if the Hound would forgive Arya for that or if he will always be mad at her.

    Trystane was his father's son. With Doran dead, Trystane becomes the ruler of Dorne, which would send Ellaria back to square one.
  14. Exercise and Fitness: sticking to resolutions

    Well I'm just over a stone overweight for a healthy weight for my age and height; I don't look my weight at all but I definitely feel it and this is about getting fit - not looking skinny. I'm not going on any kind of crash diet or really any kind of diet at all as I want to just be a more healthy person in general. I'm exercising more and eating around 1200 a day - do far after a week I already feel healthier and better for it. IM just not doing anything too crazy but hope I can lose the stone in 3 months in time for a comic convention LOL want the costume to look okay. Thanks - I'm feeling really good about it all actually - I used to be very good at sports in school and was pretty fit and then went to uni, got really depressed and a bit fat and now I'm trying to get fit again haha - time will tell if I'm successful ..also a smaller stomach wouldn't hurt...
  15. "missing" epilogues

    The dragons hatching was a perfectly suitable epilogue for Thrones finding out that Bran is alive is a perfectly good epilogue for Clash Littlefinger revealing his plan is a perfectly good ending for Feast just as Varys reealng his plan was a perfectly good epilogue for Dance
  16. Rant and Rave without Repercussions [S7 Leaks Edition]

    Killing all that is left of your family, to get revenge for dead family members is kinda stupid, isn't it? Even if you were okay with killing Doran for his inaction on things, why kill his son? He's innocent, and the nephew or cousin of the dead people you're getting revenge for. I don't see how this makes any sense.
  17. How do D&D decide what to keep/cut..?

    Like I said, I believe that Martin does character development and dialogue better than D&D, but the structure of the last two books is just plain bad. Stannis's arc in particular suffered from this in that we didn't get the Battle of Winterfell. This meant that his arc was entirely made up of exposition and rising action, without so much of a climax. However, take a look at Jon's arc in season 6. We had exposition with him reuniting with Sansa and receiving Ramsay's letter. We had rising action, with Sansa and Jon rallying the North to their cause. We had a climax with the Battle of the Bastards. We had the falling action, with Jon and Sansa conversing on the battlements of Winterfell, discussing their next move. And we had resolution, with Jon being proclaimed King in the North. That is good storytelling. I could make the same case for the vast majority of the arcs in season 6. All of your critiques about the character development and continuity have to do with the writing aspect of the show. As for logic, all I'll say is that the show has its own logic that its kept to, for the most part. It may have strayed a bit here and there, but not nearly as much as people here think. The only law of stabbing is if you get stabbed in a vital organ, you die. Areo was stabbed in the spine, Arya, the side. It's possible the Waif's knife missed a vital organ, which helped Arya stay alive until she received medical attention. Now, even though I don't have a problem with her surviving the wound, I did have a problem with all the stunts Arya was able to do. The least she could have done was clutch her side, as running should have been painful.

    That's an excellent theory and totally plausible.
  19. Brans meddling with the past

    Are all the physical/quantum/magical laws of TWOIAF universe one hundred percent established in the books? I thought not. "The weirwood cannot talk" Yet, Theon hears. I understand where DMSon is coming from with the present time argument, but DM using a quote from a 2 day old apprentice proving something cannot happen does not prove his argument correct. Reading the literalists on here is kinda like the literal religious zealots in our world quoting the red book. It is okay if others don't close the door on reaching back when a 9-10 year old and a secretive/deceptive guy are your only sources and there are just as many quotes that could be interpreted to mean he can reach back. We all know nothing.
  20. Top 5 Favorite Characters (POV vs non-POV)

    A bit off topic. Yes, I do think that he is the gravedigger at the Quite Isle. Shite, I just finished that Brienne FfC re-read. I dunna know where Martin is gonna take him. All I know is that if Martin takes him off the Quiet Isle it best not be to save Sansa. If he dies while trying to save Sansa I will be saying foul profane things. AND I am still mad that Arya left him to die alone (which he didn't)
  21. Well, Anne is definitly not in her best shape right now. I exited the episode convinced she was a goner, but since have come to think that, yeah, it will be better for the story if she ties some loose ends before her (inevitable I think) death. But I dont see how she could recover of these injuries before the end of the season, so she'll probably bite it still in a pretty rough shape. Which means she probably wont go down fighting, which is kinda sad... Or maybe I'm overthinking this...
  22. Top 5 Favorite Characters (POV vs non-POV)

    Oberyn Martell soldiered in the Second Sons for a time before forming his own sellsword company but that company is not named. I believe it was the Brave Companions. Mainly because they just did things antithetical to what a sellsword company should do (immediately killing Ser Amory Lorch and maiming Jaime, instead of ransoming both, and obviously maiming Jaime decreases his ransom) but that benefit the Martells. Qyburn was also with them, and there are lots of shady things about him, I think he's a Martell crony working to undermine Cersei. One reason is that it's clear he doesn't have Varys's little birds after becoming Master of Whispers, as the only information he gives can be gathered around King's Landing and at the docks. Reports from all the 7 kingdoms besides Dorne just stop. Yet almost immediately after it happens he knows Euron won the kingsmoot and I think the only way he could know that quickly is via glass candle. The only actors we can be reasonably sure are using a glass candle are Sarella Sand / Marwyn, and Quaithe, and I don't see any reason to think Quaithe would be working with Qyburn.
  23. Bakker XLVI: Make Eärwa Great Again

    "Black holes" reminds me that we/I discussed that chorae were possibly singularities, but I can't remember why
  24. Just got finished listening to the new podcast. Question. Is a "green sea dragon" a green comet or a piece of black meteor that falls into the ocean? If the latter, why is it green? I understand that it symbolizes a greenseer, but I'm wondering what it literally represents.
  25. US politics: Donny, you're out of your element

    They only have themselves to blame at this point. First off for backing this moron, and secondly for allowing their ambassador to ask Flynn questions that they had to know were inappropriate while being recorded or monitored.. Perhaps their spycraft isn't everything its' cut out to be.
  26. Bakker XLVI: Make Eärwa Great Again

    I think the more important bit is that the missing sranc brain matter is discussed in the context of their being unable to capture a cunoroi and make a comparison to them--which is implying to the reader that nonmen who look a lot like sranc, may also lack a soul. Which is intriguing.
