  1. I was horrified to read Tyrion's speech about dany's past actions; has it been mentioned that this is a really bad, distorting version of a famous speech/ poem by Martin Niemöller? It goes roughly like this: When the nazis came for the communists, I said nothing; after all, I was not a communist. When they came for the social democrats, I said nothing; after all, I was not a social democrat. When they came for the unionists, I said nothing; after all, I was not a unionist. When they came for me, there was no one left to protest. (I think it begins with "When they came for the Jews"; there are many versions of it.) I can't even...Yeah right, when they came for the slavers... (Als die Nazis die Kommunisten holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Kommunist. Als sie die Sozialdemokraten einsperrten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Sozialdemokrat. Als sie die Gewerkschafter holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Gewerkschafter. Als sie mich holten, gab es keinen mehr, der protestieren konnte.)
  2. So, Bran is the YMBQ?
  3. I'm just sorry I didn't stop watching sooner. And I certainly will never read the books. I'm sure they are much better than the show but not that much better. Sorry, book fans. Of course I was only going to read them if, er, when the series was finished, so...
  4. Thank you! Doesn't reflect well on them if their English is even worse than mine,LOL! Ah, soon my watch will be ending... will end... It's going to end... Where's Stannis when you need him?! ETA: I'll probably still visit the politics threads in the General section, but I'm going to miss the R & R. Damn, now I'm getting sentimental.
  5. True. I'm still not watching but gleeefully looking forward to fan reactions. Meanwhile, I have a question for the native speaking folks. Don't judge me, but it's driving me nuts: Shouldn't it be "(as) cool as a cucumber"?

    Not my government, but I think it was in exchange for supposedly buying a newspaper, firing certain journalists, and writing propaganda to help with the election.

    To the OP, yes it is totally a silly event, and aside from the trashy music, I truly love it! Trashy music! Wind machines! Very gay culture! Drama! Zero points from Austria for Germany! Australia and Israel located in Europe now! Conspiracy theories after the contest! Haven't watched the semis-finales. This year, I only know the German song, which, as usual, is an embarrassment. Which will not stop people twittering that it's all a conspiracy because Merkel or whatever when the show is over. Let the fun begin! Will try the chatroomnow.

    Wait, I think Kurz is just ending the coalition. Damn. Now I might have a smidge of respect for him,which in turn makes me feel dirty.

    His speech was so, so embarrassing. 90 percent accusations, conspiracy theories, The Media, and he was totally set up... I share your hopes, Wolfgang. Press conference supposedly at 19.45 pm.
  13. Oops,I should have watched the vid first, thanks @kissedbyfire and @Demetri
  14. But wait...didn't they have a fan contest, and the winner will watch the episode together with Emilia?
  15. Alternately, cold open to Danaerys opening her eyes while under whatever passes for a shower in Westeros.. .a waterfall?
