    Have no clue.

    Daenery’s Diaherrea?

    She was high on whatever she took, and those were her side effects.

    Joffrey Was Justified in Beheading Ned Stark.

    So Tywin, Bloodraven (not kings but very influental Hands, and VERY harsh men) were stupid to let people live after they rebelled and confessed. If one rebels and confesses and submits, I don't think it's that dumb to send him to the Wall, or reducing his power and lands. It's still a punishment, not a pardon.

    Joffrey Was Justified in Beheading Ned Stark.

    After Tywin arrived in the city, it was him who ruled. And let's not forget, Joffrey did not capture Stannis. It's not the same situation at all. Of course he won't pardon someone who is in an open rebellion and on the loose. Ned was humbled, captured and confessed.

    Joffrey Was Justified in Beheading Ned Stark.

    Revealing his plot, leaving him without a single bodyguard in the capital, and sending him to the Wall AFTER one has admitted his treason, well, that sounds quite enough to me. And executing Ned didn't stop others from plotting against Joff, on the contrary. If you practice only one approach while ruling, which would be a mixture of ruthlessness, harshness, and even sadism, you won't last long. If anything, for the sake of not having a discord with other people at court, including his mother, and for the sake of Sansa, who was his betrothed at the time, letting Ned to the Wall was a very practical solution. The late advice Tywin gave Joff about letting people live after they submit was spot on.

    Was it that way? Well, might've mixed things up with the thing we should not speak of here. However, I think my points still stand. A harmless Ned on the Wall wouldn't have hurt anybody.

    Joffrey Was Justified in Beheading Ned Stark.

    Joffrey broke his word, that he would be merciful. That's the problem. After Ned was obviously defeated, sending him to the Wall could've bought Joff even some sympathy. After Ned's plot failed and his men killed, that could've been counted as the ruthless part of king Joffrey, if he was wise. Letting Ned to join the Night's Watch would've shown the merciful part of Joff. After all, sending a nobleman to the Wall is a very practical solution, and is done very often. The trick in ruling is to show mercy after being ruthless.

    Melisandre and Thoros of Myr

    The way I see it: Moqorro-More accurate visions, is heading to Daenerys, the more likely person to have a key role defeating the others. Melisandre, less accurate visions, helps Stannis who will reach certain point, but maybe not fighting or defeating the others, more likely setting the terrain for it. Daenerys-representing the Fire Family, Stannis, representing the Partially-Fire family. Seems like Moqorro is in better touch with his religion, so I think that this is telling.

    Thought on Theon Stark, The Hungry Wolf

    If it wasn't for him Andals would've conquered the North, destroy the weirwoods and infect the region with their nonsense customs. Theon Stark is a legend.

    Would Runestone be in danger if Yohn marched with Robb?

    Yes LF would've convinced Lysa to punish Royce.

    Football: Remain in Europe

    I am an Inter supporter so I watched only the game vs PSV, but viewed the highlights afterwards however, what a football night. A shame that one of Napoli, PSG and Liverpool must go home after groups. I have a soft spot for Liverpool so I hope they go through. Although tonight they obviously got outplayed by Napoli, at least from what I grasped from highlights and stats. Liverpool has a good opportunity to beat Red Star two games in a row while PSG/Napoli having a tough fight.

    Would a family therapist help the Greyjoys out?

    Vic: "My brother had sex with my wife and I killed her and fed her to the crabs". Therapist: "Now how does that make you feel"?

    Do people actually believe Bolt-on?

    Not the worst and illogical theory because we have already the Mance is Rhaegar one, but plot wise it would be disastrous if it's true. A thousands of years old non-human who likes to wander around humans and to be evil. If it is true, I hope at least is made to look better. I think that his connection with the Others is very symbolical, because, as a man who likes to leech humanity out of life, is helping the others indirectly, reducing the men power, being ignorant of Others' existence. I think he'll die before he gets to know they're back. Blood means life, and Roose leeches it from himself. He dehumanizes himself, voluntarily. He leeches the northern army on the red wedding, the army which can help fighting the others, just before the same army reaches the north again, and probably learn about the threat from beyond the wall. He whispers, people struggle to hear his words. The Others are described to communicate in a somewhat strange way, just at the beginning of the series. His motto is "a peaceful land, a quiet people", which can be interpreted as some sort of an Other-utopia, where people don't talk (quiet/dead people), so the land would be peaceful, since no one would be left to speak. Likes to cut tongues, well this just fits with the above. "A quiet people".

    Does GRRM hate heroism or avoid it?

    Just read medieval history and tell me how "heroes" were ending. Or, not medieval, but only 20th century, when people, being heroes or being just ordinary people, suffered way, way, way worse deaths than ASOIAF heroes or smallfolk. Or today, when people who try to fight corruption and injustice are tapped on the shoulder or being laughed at, IF they are lucky. If they're not, they get blown up while driving on a bridge, found in pieces in a car, or assassinated on a daylight. So no, I don't think that George Martin hates heroism. He is merely advising the heroes to use their brains. Naivete, stupidity, egoism, all can undone any hero. On Ramsay: He gets away with as much as many serial killers/criminals managed to get away with, even in this era of fingerprints, DNA, cameras, wiretaps, law enforcement, courts of law, police dogs, and what not.

    Why didn't Littlefinger try the Bronn approach in dueling?

    Because Bronn is a professional killer, and Petyr isn't.

    Tender side of Tywin, Roose, And Walder.

    Tywin loved his wife. According to everyone. Roose is a weirdo, and a rapist. I don't know. Walder probably not so bad. Most likely he's cracking dirty jokes about women.

    Poll: The Southron Ambitions

    This. A whole conspiracy theory based on Barbrey Dustin's blabbering, a petty woman with who knows what kind of intentions.
