You'll only get like three copper plus you run the risk of being attacked by the guards.

Sansa is still in The Vale in the books, it's another character (Jeyne Poole) that is with Theon in the books.

Ah, yes. Wait though, didn't Ramsey write a letter to John Snow saying he wanted Reek and his bride back after defeating Stannis's army? I could probably just go find my copy of the book and look it up.

Yeah, the "The Pink Letter". There is a lot of speculation and tinfoil surrounding the question of whether Ramsey actually wrote the letter or not, though. Most people believe he didn't write it but there are tons of fan-theories on who they think actually did.

I love this guy's YouTube theory videos. Some of his episode guide episodes are a little too whiny but his theories are pretty fun:

I'm always amazed at the minutia from the books that you guys seem to remember and really care about.  When you were reading them, were you making notes in the margins to keep track of all these hundreds of characters mentioned in 2 sentences each?  I read all the books, but have only the vaguest recollections of most of the minor characters you guys go on about.

So my question to you OCD walking wikis is... Why the hell is everyone so terrified of the swallows group?  Why not just send in the Kings guard or lannister army or Tyrell army and kick the crap out of them?

Also, I like Amy Schumer a lot.  Her Milk Milk Lemonade song was awesome.
Glad I'm not the only one who wonders this

Basically in the show the city guard is crappy and wouldn't act without orders and the Lannister forces wouldn't act without Tommen's approval since he's the only one left in KL who could act on the Lannister's authority. Since Cersei did such a great job convincing Tommen to respect their authority about them taking his hot new wife and him being a giant pussy who doesn't want anybody to get hurt, he's not giving that order. Kevan's on the way so he could, but the Faith Militant is a little better armed then they appear. At least in the books, anyways, they've got some knights and better weapons and so forth. Also they have pretty excellent hostages for leverage. Whoever stormed in would have to be able to get to them before the Sparrows do and that's unlikely. Stannis talked to Sam about his father Randyll who's a Tyrell bannerman so he may appear. I think in the show we're going to see Olenna's adversaries get rekt.

Go to an Alamo Drafthouse if they have them up there. Teenagers can't even get in without a guardian because they serve alcohol.

Oooh I can finally be smug and say something to the effect of "yeah I totally already knew that like a decade ago." A number of years ago people were trying to get them banned as gambling machines.

I work in the trucking industry but even I look forward to automated trucking. It will put us out of business but will be so much safer for long haul trucking. Actually I'm looking forward to driverless traffic as a mainstream thing. People are awful. Also there are tons of Mexican/South American truck drivers. The industry seems split almost 50/50 when it comes to intermodal trucking.

I think its reasonable for people to fear the loss of jobs due to automation. Once we've replaced all of these people in all of these industries what do we do with them? Realistically speaking on a long enough timeline how many jobs couldn't be done by automation? Or wouldn't be necessary because of automation in adjacent industry? People are amazingly callous about people in those situations. We could live in a post-scarcity world with wide swaths of crushing poverty just because other people wouldn't believe they deserved anything more.

Glenn beck is still a thing? I thought he went to jail for raping and murdering a girl in 1999?

This kind of misinformation and speculation is anathema to the healthy working of political media. I'm personally disappointed in you.

It was in 1991 that he raped and murdered that girl.

I'm not a big Cruise fan but I bought like five or six tickets to Jack Reacher. Didn't even watch it. I'm just hoping my funding partially helps Scientology go full death ray.

I don't really especially dislike Bieber any more than any other random pop-star/boy-band type. Don't get me wrong if you were asking 16 year old me he would absolutely hate Bieber with a passion. But 30 year old me doesn't have to complete with him for the attention of 16 year old girls because 30 year old me has access to both ether and a van.

Yeah I mean I get the whole body issue empowerment thing but we don't need to see her naked like half of every episode. I'm a fat guy with no shame who would have no problem being naked all the time but I realize that nobody wants their eyes to set sail on the seas of my pasty rolls so I wear clothes like a normal human being.

Watched Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Enjoyed it. Its basically like a recycled 30 Rock-lite but its a fun show. I look forward to the second season whenever that will be.

Started watching Girls. All caught up now. This is one that I honestly didn't expect to like at all but I have to admit it has a certain charm I can't shake. I'm honestly conflicted about the show. Its one of the rare times where I can acknowledge a show is really good but still be on the fence about it. The biggest universal complaint is that all of the characters are awful, selfish hipsters without real problems and that is 100% correct. As a matter of fact that seems exactly like the intention. I kind of liken it as a far more dramatic cross between Its Always Sunny (with a group of characters that are honestly awful people) and Curb Your Enthusiasm (cringe-porn) But its genuinely very very funny at times. You just can't go into it expecting to really root for any of these people. Kind of like Breaking Bad (just making sure I cover the spectrum of different's show's fans who would be offended by these comparisons) It probably doesn't sound very funny based on this review but it is. I won't go into a rambling diatribe about it but I do really like the characterizations. The characters are generally rather complex and will have a certain decent core about them, but so much awful fluff as to drown it out. Marnie is literally the worst. Although to be honest the show just seems to kind of exist at this point and literally nothing has really happened since the beginning of the show until now but that also kind of seems like a part of its genius. Its hard to explain, really. I could write walls of text about it and not really reach it.

If its artificial calves they should call them gamplants.

If its an artificial bladder sphincter it should be called damnplants.

If its an artificial vagina being installed they should call it ma'amplants

If its a pop infusion of George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley they should call them Whamplants

If its an adopted child they should call them famplants.

Im backpacking around Mexico

Have a fun kidnapping.

A Norwegian friend of mine actually lived in Mexico City for a little bit. His little sister and two dumb-as-fuck white boys defied security's orders and drove around looking for clubs in their daddy's Mercedes Benz. While she was very fortunately in the bathroom some gangsters straight up came into the club and kidnapped the two boys and made them shit and piss themselves for like a week while tied up in some basement somewhere. Teenagers are literally the stupidest people imaginable.

I just wanted an excuse to tell that story.
