  1. Past hour
  2. Mike McCoy just got shitcanned in Denver. Poor guy, he probably misses Timmy Tebow.
  3. Completely off topic: does Serbian use the Cyrillic or Roman Alphabet?
  4. I, too, like to balance my intake of healthy food by eating hallucinogenic mushrooms.
  5. Yes, you just didn't explain how to prove it wasn't consummated. Sansa's word? Both Sansa and Tyrion's word? Mind you, I'm sure it will be annulled eventually. One of several wrenches in the works is the when. Rickon may not turn up until a bit later, when the north already will have had to unite under one leader. I agree that Jon would never usurp any of his cousins' birthrights.
  6. I'm so sorry Ty, it started so fun!
  7. I watched this movie hungover on Sunday just because of this thread. My god was it terrible. Worst thing I’ve seen since Zardoz, and I intentionally watch a lot of bad movies.
  8. I think this lack of empathy, on men's part, is a big part of the problem.
  9. I'm sorry about your cat Lany
  10. I have gone over all the differences between the kindle versions I mentioned. All nontrivial mistakes I found are listed in my reddit post. Most punctuation differences are something like , <-> . and a missing quotation mark at the end of a conversation. Now that I remember, there are two or three cases of ! <->? , which might be somewhat nontrivial. For instance: But in fact, v3.1_r17 contain 500 or so more typos than v3.1_r2, really weird. I almost suspect the texts in v3.1_r17 was from OCR. In one case they mistake something like Dorne for Dome... The mistakes fixed in v3.1_r17 are "The lion's dead" , Jeyne Westerling's hips, and a third one I missed in the reddit post. And some trivia: GRRM misspelled Valar Morghulis for Valor Morghulis in one book, just as in this chat in 2002. GRRM misspelled colossal for collossal twice.
  11. I don't think China would have necessarily ended up dominating Europe but it would've curtailed its expansion and influence to large degree. It might have also prevented the Europe Slave Trade in Africa . Very likely, China have would end up colonizing Australia and very possibly South America and a good part of North America. In such an alternate timeline , history might have been rendered less bloody.
  12. Are there any good movies with Selena Kyle? I'm not a complicated woman.
  13. Far be it from me to correct an officer of the law, but... under the criminal law, I believe you're correct, but under employment and equality law, it can be a single incident.
  14. It's extremely easy to call that a dirty play because it was. And we will never know what was going on in Zaza's head, but we could assume the gist of his thoughts were, "hmmm, one unnecessary step closer and Kawhi lands on my foot." Popovich wouldn't condemn the man without reason. He should have taken it a step further and went all John Chaney, send out a GOON! But he didn't because he's a professional. And John Chaney is special, in a good way.
  15. Actually I think ya'Boyz are delivering.
  16. I’ve already explained that if a marriage isn’t consummated it can be legally annulled, in fact according to asoiaf wiki that’s the only way a marriage can be broken. Seeing as Littlefinger has already made the engagement public I’m going to assume that’s his plan. Actually they’re more likely to crown Eddard Stark’s trueborn son Rickon, and Jon would make sure they do because he’s not going to steal what rightfully belongs to his brother.
  17. A whole lot of insubstantiated claims here. The marriage wouldn't be considered valid on the basis of non-consumption, though.
  18. I think this is true, but mainly because were the situation reversed then it’s unlikely the man would be worried for their safety or think of negative consequences. It’s difficult for men to put themselves in a woman’s shoes like that, especially if they do not consider themselves threatening, even if other men sometimes are.
  19. Anyone who thinks there's going to be an additional reveal on this is going to be disappointed: as is anyone who imagines they're going to be satisfied with the solution to every mystery in the series.
  20. I'm right next door to you, in Serbia, and there aren't that many unfinished series. The sales must be pretty good to have our publishers sticking with the authors for so long. On the other hand, it might be the case of only the top authors being translated to Serbian.
  21. Actually, that is a great point. What we (men) see as offhand and innocent can be taken very differently by someone we don't know.
  22. Could this cause Merkel to lose her chancellorship? And if so, what then?
  23. As motives go, Joffrey trying to emulate Robert (in his own mind at least) isn't all that unbelievable. The wretched little shit did worship his royal father, sort of. No. Far from "only plausible". Actually, far from "plausible", given that no such mystical-employer-of-common-thugs has been even hinted at. Oh, the solution is badly written, few people argue that. GRRM is perfectly capable of delivering material of questionable quality, the Meereeneese (the correct amount of 'e's, I hope?) Knot can be the ultimate proof of that. For example, why the obvious, inevitable question, "why at all give the assassin a dagger?", asked many a time on this forum alone, is carefully avoided by all characters in the books? Because GRRM hasn't invented a passably good reason, and prefers us not to think about it too much. But the solution he decided on at least works, without inventing too much additional elements, unlike the forum-made alternatives.
  24. We can say they generally/always married brides of first men origin. A few stark women married to people from other regions though; besides marrying Royces and that one time Arryn marriage immediately after conquest, one married house Willum from the reach for example.
  25. True. But proving it wasn't might be tricky. No, Robb excluded Sansa because legally Sansa is a Lannister. “Young, and a king,” he said. “A king must have an heir. If I should die in my next battle, the kingdom must not die with me. By law Sansa is next in line of succession, so Winterfell and the north would pass to her.” His mouth tightened. “To her, and her lord husband. Tyrion Lannister. I cannot allow that. I will not allow that. That dwarf must never have the north.” “One more matter. Lord Balon has left chaos in his wake, we hope. I would not do the same. Yet I have no son as yet, my brothers Bran and Rickon are dead, and my sister is wed to a Lannister. I’ve thought long and hard about who might follow me. I command you now as my true and loyal lords to fix your seals to this document as witnesses to my decision.” Could be. Or not. We don't have enough info at this point to be sure of any of this. I agree. But it's a step in the right direction, so to speak. The northmen are more likely to crown someone they trust than someone they don't. Not his legitimacy but whether he is in the line of succession or not. There's been a lot of discussion on his possible legitimacy but that's a separate issue. And irt his legitimacy, again, there's simply no way of knowing w/ what we know so far. As @Lyanna<3Rhaegar said above, it's certainly possible.
  26. I never thought about about this, but YES! Gor in Gregor's, same as in mine, comes from Slavic word gora which means mountain. It stands for someone who is big and strong. Also, it is first part of words for bitter, burn and proud in some Slavic languages I will do some research to see if I could find anything about name Sandor. It probably is from old Slavic, because I remember some similarities with old Slavic names I read in literature EDIT: All Slavic names I found that have dor are from Byzantine or Latin, so I don't know. Also, san means dream
