  2. Was he?? I don't know that talking 4 castles is how you rate the succes, Robb wasn't trying to take every castle in the Westerlands either, his wasn't a campaign of conquest. Numbers do mean much, Theon became the Prince of Winterfell with a dozen men and he was about to get kick out by Rodrik because he had far more than him. Having a map means they are going to know where to go, how big are the distances or whether they can find villages, people and food or just miles of nothing until they arrive, if thet arrive. Does the map points every danger of the inland?? And more inportantly, since where the IB are any good on foot?? Harwyn was the only exception to them. Aren't the armies of Westeros made almost entirely by smallfolk?? Wouldn't those snow drenched peasants perfectly know their lands and how to attack them?? Owning the Moat means the difference not very significant, they are still freezing their asses there, the Northeners wouldn't even have to do nothing to kick them out of the Moat, winter would make the job for them just fine. And the more people outside in the blizzard the more kamikazes.

    Is the hound Sansa's 'new direwolf'?

    It can happen when one fraternal twin "consumes" the other. It does happen in real life though it is very rare. Joanna already had one set of fraternal twins in Jaime and Cersei, and while tag teaming wouldn't be literally necessary, they'd probably have to have slept with her pretty close together time-wise. It would be an explanation for Tyrion's heterochromia and having both blonde and dark hair. There was a real-life instance where a woman was in the hospital for something and she found through testing that her children weren't biologically hers though she gave birth to them. Turns out she had the ovaries of her absorbed fraternal twin sister. Think the phenomena is called vanishing twins. https://time.com/3851843/twins-complications/ https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-4564494/Model-fused-twin-sister-womb.html Aerys' and Tywin's sons duking it out in Joanna's womb is especially appropriate given their rivalry for Joanna and their best buddies to frenemies backstory.

    Why does Balon Greyjoy want to attack the North?

    Nah, he only took one castle ( I said 2 but it was really Roose which was originally Whent, and it wasnt even Roose anyway it was Arya), for all of its glamor Robbs was wasnt successful, Balons was. You throw numbers around like they mean something, but Theon become the Prince of Winterfell with like a dozen men. Numbers dont mean much, castles do Im confused, the Ironborn dont know where they are? Theres no maps of inland of the North? And what? Peasants? Vs soldiers? Especially ironborn, fearsome lot. But really anyone who's dressed in armor with shiny swords, think, like practically the entire smallfolk population of Riverlands vs Rorge with a helmet. Id rather own the castles in the blizzard then being outside them

  9. Yeah but we never said Robb had or could take the whole Westerlands because of that with his 6k men did we?? Yep, given that those snow drenched peasants are the ones who regularly fight them and where are they heading?? Is not that they know where are they are. That and mainly because they'd have to guard a literal ruin in the worst winter ever, and even in a regular one, the plan is doomed to fail

    DCEU: Killer Clowns from Gotham City

    They should follow this up with a sequel called Jokers. Featuring all the iterations of the character fighting for control of Phoenix's mind, and whichever version takes control is how the character looks to the audience / Batman. (recast + CGI the dead ones, obviously. Keep the painted over mustache.)

  12. So, Ramsay's wet dream, without any reasoning behind it is an indicator that it can't be too difficult to do?? Is very clear that the Ryswells and Dustins didn't feel threatened by the IB, otherwise their host wouldn't be mediocre, nor do i know why the fact Barrowton is lead by a woman is anything significative. So Saying a hard truth is not the same as being a graven, neither is having brains. With how many men?? The IB have 20k men at the very best, being 13k a more believable guess, how would they go inland?? They suck at it, how would they even know where to go?? Taking and holding a place as big as the North, even half of it requires certain logistics and manpower the IB simply don't have and will never find in the locals. Well, if you ignore the blatant differences between the Riverlands and the North, the Rivermen and the Northmen and everything else, the comparation is on point. The Northmen tend to fight united against any invader, that's what they always have done, the idea that they wouldn't make a common cause to throw them out if the IB became a serious threat is just ludicrous. The adult Stark is even more ludicrous, almost every House in the North sent men to join Rodrik to retake Winterfell, they would act united sooner than later. I don't understand how and why what the Reach army does reflects in anything what the Northeners would do with the rope on their neck.

    Is the hound Sansa's 'new direwolf'?

    Yes, I agree, but what I am talking about is not just "one very attractive" and "one very ugly person" being "paired up", but the Hound's and Sansa's story arc/structure and overall themes, both as a pair and as individuals, resemble very closely the ones of the Beast's and the Beauty's in the original fairytale. And that is not the case for those other beauty and the beast characters. I have already seen some of the other posts and they are terrific

    US politics - When the Barr's so low.

    I don't know that poster, but I think Hillary has a ton of legitimate, upsetting issues surrounding her, and when people try to say it's sexism, it gives power to those on the other side who make outrageous claims like, "You can't criticize a woman in this society anymore." As problematic as the whole thing is, Hillary represents a level of corruption and elitism that has nothing to do with gender (not that you said it did).

    Why does Balon Greyjoy want to attack the North?

    Thats impressive man. Stannis only took 1 and Robb only took 2. (Stannis actually takes more then 1 but thats after war of 5) Yea, why not. Whos gonna stop them, some snow drenched peasants? Huh, interesting. (Not great at westeros history) And before them was a Riverland born Andal? Because of the snow drenched peasents? I know the general consensus is that the north is the weakest and hardly populated and Westeros is Great Britan, but frankly, none of thats the case. Doran admits Dorne is the weakest. Robert and Jojen respectively asked Ned and Bran why the North isnt populated, to which Stark replies it is. Westeros is Westeros. Nah man quotes for everything Breakfast Lunch and Dinner Ok, Ill agree to that (even without quotes lol) but still thats not really saying anything. Like Alaska (I totally do not have any statistic to back this up and am 100% assuming) probably by acre its the poorest state in the union in terms of natural resources. However its also like a third of America and largly inhospitable. However the parts that can support life is bursting with resources. No one would ever claim theyre poor in that, despite being the poorest by acre. Greyjoys not after money like some Dothraki rider, hes a great lord interested in starting a thriving kingdom. Sure the West is "jucier" as Balon claims but its also more protected, the Norths just sitting there seemingly with a sign saying free stuff. Ashas just dramatic. The real collection she started was highborn baby hostages. Thats really all ya need to conquer in the feuadal age. Lol jesus. No man, the wost king is fucking Joff. Maybe Renly. Certainly not the ones whove to date seen the most success and whos kingly dreams were only dashed by cold bloodied murder

    Why does Balon Greyjoy want to attack the North?

    We really don't know how Balon's campaign would have continued had he lived - but there was still time before winter started (months, in fact) and unlike the Northmen the Ironborn did had time to bring their harvest in and didn't have invaders who messed with their winter provisions. I guess the plan would have been to continue to take castles and keeps west of Winterfell - Torrhen's Square (which was taken ahead of schedule), whatever Ryswell keeps there are, eventually Barrowton, whatever there is to be had on Cape Kraken, etc. Taking on White Harbor would be very problematic early in the campaign - but Barrowton is a wooden town ruled by a woman from a wooden hall. If Ramsay dreams torching the place it cannot to be that difficult for experienced raiders like the Ironborn who know a thing or two how raid and torch places. The Dustins and Ryswells only raise a mediocre host to target the remnants of the Ironborn Vic left behind - and they only do so after they know Roose and the Freys are coming north in force. Perhaps Barbrey would have helped her brothers and cousins - and that could be the reason why Balon did not target the Rills first - but perhaps not. The North is spread so thin that raising any big army is going to completely deplete the lands of any defenders - and if the enemy outmaneuvers you then you lose everything. Asha is basically a craven. She wants to bury the old way and become like the greenlanders - which is not what the Ironborn want. Which is why they join Euron basically to a man. It would have been an ugly and long business for the Ironborn to conquer half or more of the North - but it is something that they could have done the central authority of the Iron Throne had permanently collapsed. Euron's dream is utter madness - but Balon's dream was something they could have done. I mean, regardless how Harwyn took the Riverlands - it is a fact that he could keep them after he took them. And his son and grandson could, too, despite the fact that the Hoares were not all that popular on the Iron Islands and despite the fact that the Riverlanders did definitely outnumber the Ironborn. Yet Harren had so much power over them that he could force them to build him Harrenhal. The idea that the Northmen would - in the absence of an adult Lord Stark - act as a unified bloc to throw out the Ironborn is actually laughable. There is no basis for this, nor any indication that any group of lords or noblemen lacking a clear leader would ever do that. The best example how shitty these people can be is the Hightower army in FaB after First Tumbleton. They do have a large army and they are all from the Reach, yet they cannot make common cause, nor even agree who should lead them. The idea that the Northmen could choose a supreme leader/general orchestrating their efforts against the Ironborn is ridiculous - it would not happen, and that would be Balon's advantage. He would take them down one castle at a time - like the Dothraki destroyed the Sarnori.

    How low are our aquifers? If we wanted a triple redundancy system, i.e. - 3 levels of aquifer, how deep would we have to go? By way of comparison, how deep would you have to go in Italy?

    Swimming pools in Florida

    Up my way we start adding sharks one per day after labor day and until Christmas. The rough action of sharkskin on sharkskin creates a friction that stabilizes the temperature around 72 F. Maybe Floridians can finally join the 21st century and implement this practical strategy.
