    By Everam’s will; a re-read of the Demon cycle:

    Later in the books it becomes even worse. I mean, they find some metal that can be used to enhance demon bones thingies (didn't read it in English so I don't know original names for them) and it's supposed to be extremely rare, they even say there's estimated something like one cubic foot of that material in the whole world only to have god damn everything plated with it a few chapters later. If I remember correctly, they mention something like: "Oh, we found another source" and that's it. I mean, such a gamechanger should definitely be covered "on screen".

    Do the people of Westeros understand money

    I recall Dunk discussing prices of transport by a ferry through the Gods Eye with an innkeeper. He remembered that some years ago a price for a person had been X pennies and for a horse Y pennies and since then the prices increased to Z and W (he even thought to himself something like "everything is more expensive nowadays"). Dunk is an illiterate commoner, so it seems people of Westeros understand prices pretty well.
  5. Yeah, it was so predictable that Jon could end up on the IT in season 1, and 2, and 3, and 4, and 5...
  6. He's a troll who keeps spamming how Harry Strickland is "Aegon" and that he's gonna end up on the throne, don't waste your time.

    That would be very worrying ... and now that I think about it, if they win and she dies in the battle -or after-, it's just as problematic. I would not like to live in Westeros with 100 thousand Dothrakis loose on their own, without anyone to control them. The dragons loose on their own are another threat; I'm not so confident that the very recent bond with Rhaegal would allow Jon to control them if Dany dies. And for sure nobody would be able to control the Dothrakis.

    Their hairs aren't that blonde anymore because it's winter and sun is not bleaching them.

    Rant and Rave Thread

    Oh my god, the hair discussion. Tyrion hasn't been blonde for a while because he looks terrible as a blonde. Jaime has had shorter hair which doesn't look as blonde as his longer hair. The quick look at him we had this episode was heavily color corrected to give the typical Northern look - it's heavily blue and dark. I remember the same issue with Melisandre and I saw a few reactors be confused that her hair wasn't red anymore. It was - it was just color corrected to hell and back. Between this and the spiral symbol of the White Walkers and WHAT IT ALL MEANS! I'm so ready for this season to be done so I don't have to watch people running down rabbit holes that the show introduces because the show is sloppy.
  14. The ref thinks it didn't hit his arm. It did. Next season it is explicitly stated that use of the arm/hand in scoring a goal must be disallowed. Irrelevant, no? Had it not hit his arm the ball is unlikely to have ricocheted on target. Ah Walton, responsible for some of the worst refereed games I've ever watched and appears to have sided with every controversial decision against City in the CL this season. And yes, it did hit his arm. That said, I understand that in the heat of the moment and the replay video the ref looked at, it was pretty difficult to judge well enough to make such a big call as to disallow it.

    Missing things in FaB

    Agreed, but not as much as you want. So what? Who knows in story? The Valyrians died in Doom, and there is no guarantee they knew why. Far out of scope. That´s what World should have been for. But look at the starting cutoff at Conquest. We get a bit of the Targaryens of Dragonstone... the succession from Aenar to Aerion. And then... tidbits. We have the birthdates. The actual landing was 2 BC, so at that time, Visenya, Aegon and Rhaenys were 27, 24 and 22 respectively, married and childless. We see it asserted that all three "became dragonriders" before marrying, which was before conquest - but not dates. We hear that Aegon commissioned Painted Table "years before" his Conquest - as Lord of Dragonstone. We hear it asserted that common opinion says Aegon had never set foot in Westeros before, and we hear that opinion denied - that "in their youth" Visenya and Aegon visited Oldtown, Arbor, possibly Lannisport. Well, considering it... Before Conquest, Aegon was a low profile lordling. So he could have visited Oldtown and Lannisport without attracting attention there, and his attendants from Dragonstone may not have told much either. But what should have been public information, and highly relevant: Precisely at what age did Aegon become Lord of Dragonstone with death of Aerion? Was Aerion a dragonrider? If so, of which dragon? Did Valaena survive Aerion?

    Bad shows and movies you enjoy watching.

    I should also probably admit that i'll watch most anything with werewolves and/or vampires so yeah I watched all of the True Blood shows as well as the Twilights also loved the Werewolf in London/Paris, Bram Stokers Dracula, all the Omens, im guilty of all of it and more

    Rickon is destined to be new Lord of Winterfell

    What? No! The direwolves were sent by someone or something behind the Wall, and all the children of Winterfell bonded successfully. Whatever the Stark gift is, the current generation has it, just as the old lords and kings did. I'd not heard a Harrenhal anti-magic theory - sounds interesting? But I've always thought Cat's heritage strengthens the Starks, because of time being a river and all that. She's not in opposition: in many ways, Cat had more empathy with the direwolves than Ned ever had, maybe Robb too. I don't see Rickon dying soon - the black wolf balances the white one. Probably he'll live as long as Jon does.

    UK Politics: The Edge of Destruction

    The D'Hondt system works well if used in an appropriate context. As with any electoral system. In fact, it's used also to allocate posts in the NI executive, where it has been a key part of the foundation of a peace process that now appears to be taking some heavy blows. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-47985469 In case anyone was thinking that the Irish border issue was not as serious as we all make out, this is a sad reminder that peace in NI is still fragile.

    You guys are confused. If Daenerys dies before the battle (especially if she's killed by someone in WF), her army leaves. They're there because they are loyal to her, not her title as queen. (*insert Missandei-quote*) If her army leaves, the north is screwed and the NK wins.

    Is death good? Why fight the Others?

    Interesting parallel. Craster was just buying his own safety though; no other benefit that I can see.

    PR should be simple, but mad geniuses have invented all sorts of complicated versions.

    Samwell Tarly stole the spotlight.

    She doesn't. She's been callous and ruthless against her perceived enemies since season 2. Nothing has changed up to this point, other than that her obsession with the crown has increased. Her callous and ruthless streak against people she perceive as evil has always been a part of her persona, even if Dany-haters are grasping at every straw they can in order to make her suddenly appear evil and cruel. The show already has an evil and cruel Queen who get's aroused by killing and torturing. She's currently in Kings Landing.
