    Should we lower the age of adulthood in the US to be 16?

    So are we discussing lowering the voting age to 16 or lowering the age of a legal adult to 16? Because it seems to have jumped straight into discussion about voting. As far as voting goes, I don't think the age should be lower than 18. You should at least be of an age to have graduated high school before being allowed to vote, granted some people don't even make it through high school, or some turn 18 when they're still in high school. Now what the cause of it might be is probably a whole other discussion but I feel like this day and age people aren't maturing as young as they use to say 50 years ago, more and more people are staying home not leaving the nest until a much later age. Of course it all depends on the person but I feel in general for the most part what 20 year old was in the 60s and 70s is more like what a 30 year old is today. So no, I don't think the legal age of an adult should be lowered to 16.

    Theon Greyjoy

    So it was only mentioned it wasn't shown? I guess that's why I was confused.

    Theon Greyjoy

    Did I miss something in Theon's storyline or is there a plothole in the show? Going back and rewatching the show, going back to when Theon took Winterfell, he was giving his men a speech and then they knocked him out. But then the next time we see him he is being tortured by what I assume are Bolton men. Did I miss something? Did his men hand him over, or did they just leave him there in Winterfell to be taken by Bolton men? I'm talking about the tv show not the books.

    Heartsbane

    Ok but still not much more than seeing him steal it from the House of Tarly. Do you think we'll ever see it again, or are the writers going to totally forget about it? If it does come back into play, what part do you think it will serve in the story? Jon already has his own valyrian steel sword. So who do you think will use it? The Hound maybe? That would be cool.

    Heartsbane

    Did I miss something on the show? The last we see of House Tarly's valyrian steel heirloom is Sam stealing it before he goes off to Oldtown to the Maesters correct? Has there been any mention of it since then? Is this some plotline that's just gonna fall into a blackhole?

    Why do book readers hate R+L=J?

    Careful you don't end up eating your words and you seem to have many of them. How are you gonna feel when Jon does turn out to be Rhaegar and Lyanna's child?

    Unpopular Opinions?

    But at this rate is GRRM gonna finish the series before he dies? We've yet to even get a release date for Winds of Winter and then we have A Dream of Spring that needs to come out to finish it all. All this and we hear he's working on a book that expands on the history of the House Targaryen that we got in The World of Ice and Fire. It's like come on GRRM, you're not gonna live forever, focus and please finish the main series we love so much.

    I don't hate it and I think it makes perfect sense, I think it's kind of obvious that is the way GRRM is going with it. I see a lot of people have these grasping theories, thinking way out of the box, who are probably still gonna believe their own crackpot theories even after GRRM completes the series. Granted that he freakin hurries up and completes the damn books before he dies, come on GRRM!
  9. Hahaha, oh my god I've just been reminded of the whole swallow carrying a coconut bit from Monty Python's Holy Grail.
  10. What I think is maybe even more unbelievable is Jon Snow not dying of hypothermia after going into that icy water. In the real world you would be so dead.
