  1. ABD has never looked better, to be honest. I feel for him though - he makes such a killing at the IPL, wants to win a world cup, and is also his country's best Test batter at a time when the batting is looking pretty frail. Where does he cut down on his workload? Hopefully the sabbatical took care of those feelings but it's clear that test cricket is always going to be the first to go for him.
  2. It felt a bit arrogant, like they weren't taking it seriously.No way they don't learn from this. This really sets up the Aus series though - a fit-again Steyn doesn't necessarily have a guaranteed spot in this team.
  3. What was particularly satisfying is that we won on a pitch that wasn't a tailored, green, fast bowlers paradise.
  4. to be fair, it was more 'Wow India', that was great bowling. This is going to be a thrilling finish; you're never in on this wicket.
  5. I'm pretty sure it will be an alrounder, most likely Morris on his home ground.
  6. I'd be sure to steer clear of Loras, he seems the jealous type.
  7. Sisters feel that way about brothers though, especially twins. There's still a bridge to cross to get to incest. Ned got there very quickly, didn't even consider other suitors. Went' straight to incest. It's interesting, probably just a logic flaw from GRRM, but if it's not, I have to wonder why?
  8. A more interesting question: why did Eddard jump straight to Jaime as the father?
  9. Will you be citing the forum when you hand in your assignment?
  10. Agree 100%.
  11. The problem with this argument is that it assumes there are men out there who will only give unwanted attention if the clothing/lack thereof the woman is wearing falls under some threshold. As in "I won't grab a butt in jeans but I will if it's in a mini skirt." That argument doesn't hold up to scrutiny. It's also, still, very subtly, turning the blame on the victim.
  12. This has always felt like a misconception to me. The monarchy was deposed, but Robert was chosen as king because he had Targaryen blood, not because he won.
  13. 5 Kings were fighting each other. 2 were in rebellion against the crown, with 3 claiming the crown. The 2 in rebellion were actively at war as well. None were allied with the other. The War of 5 Kings. QED.
  14. He didn't engage with any of the other kings until after the war essentially ended (only Stannis was left). There were 6 kings, but only 5 were fighting each other.
  15. Bad wording; I mean she can't trust the loyalty of all three dragons. Drogon is the only one that is 100% hers. The other two could go to anyone, even her enemies.
