    Heresy 211 Eight Cairns

    Yes. of course he will dribble out information from various POV's. No doubt in an ambiguous manner but I will be looking specifically at Bran's POV... if we ever see another book. At this stage, I think Howland has already made an appearance on the page, as the High Sparrow.

    Yes, he's obtuse and it amuses him to say things that will send readers down a thousand different rabbit holes. I was curious about the reference. All I take from it is that whatever information we get about Howland will come from Bran's POV. We shall see.

    I think there is a difference between the history of pizza and the Shadow character. One of them, I don't take very seriously; the other is rather suggestive.

    Some interesting wiki stuff about The Shadow. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Shadow GRRM's use of the Shadow meme, might refer to Bran. A Clash of Kings - Jon VII

    I can't help thinking that Ned's dream of the ToJ transitions to Lyanna because she is also encased in stone, beneath a tower long fallen. The First Keep with it's litchyard and presiding wierwood. In a reversal, three are buried there as well - Lyanna, Brandon and Rickard. Perhaps this is another 3 against 7. Although I don't know who the 7 might be unless it's the KG or symbolically, the seven kingdoms.
  6. Curiously, Ned asks himself the same question:

    Heresy 210 and the Babes in the Wood

    It's possible. Coldhands needs someone to go through the Black Gate to retrieve Bran. The horn, the dragonglass and Gilly's babe have to get t the other side as well.

    Specifically, Gilly says the Others are drawn to the 'stink of life' and it's Small Paul who shows up: Gilly makes no distinction between the wights and Craster's boys. Or at least she makes no distinction between what attracts them. I've wondered who Small Paul was actually tracking... the stink of life or Samwell (and the small horn). I'm also reminded that the Faceless Men value a newborn over all other 'sacrifices' as well.
  9. Ontario pays a billion a month in interest. How many hospitals would that build? All Wynne could manage was $120,000 for a rubber duck. It does make me wonder what Doug Ford can manage. I'll bet he can do better than a rubber duck.
  10. Oh, I get your virtue signalling. What 'values' again?
  11. You're being evasive on those values and fuck off yourself.
  12. Nobody is waving a wand around. But neither will Ford be spending money on a giant rubber duck either.
  13. But you are not open to a compelling argument. As far as I'm concerned, it's pretensious to say that he is like Trump. The argument is that he won by populist vote. I would argue that Trudeau did the same. And yes, I am more qualified to discuss Canadian politics than those who don't live in Canada or follow Canadian politics. I expect that the few people on this thread from Canada didn't expect to be called on their BS when they trot out the Trump-meme and apply it to Canadian politicians they don't like.
  14. Don't you mean what have the liberals done to health care in the last 15 years? http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/doctors-ontario-1.3550454 https://beta.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/top-bureaucrat-says-ehealth-brass-failed-to-follow-his-advice/article4215058/?ref=http://www.theglobeandmail.com& https://nationalpost.com/news/politics/over-16000-children-on-ontario-wait-lists-for-autism-services-some-families-are-waiting-years-for-help There's more if you want it. But yes; it's quite the fucking mess the new government will have to deal with.
  15. What values are you talking about? The liberal record on governance is enough to kick them to the curb. Look up scandals, there are reams of them. They don't get another pass for 'values'. Rose Knight doesn't need to do anything. The point is she confronted him at the time and she is credible. As the self-professed feminist prime-minister he has to answer for the standards he applies to everyone else. What will stop the next person from using Trudeau's defence: I have reflected on my behavior and I didn't do anything wrong. The complainant's recollection is completely different from mine. It's Trudeau's hypocrisy and complete BS that is getting him into trouble now that he is being asked about. I think his reaction is very revealing. It says a lot to me about his character and judgement whether this is a MeToo moment or not. I also recall an article in the National Post years ago; where a women recounted seeing him at some celebrity event and approached him only to hear him say to they guy next to him "all we need now are a couple of beavers". She was stunned and turned around without meeting him.
