This Overlooked Game of Thrones Character May Hold a Major Key to the Series' End

If our Bran turns out to be the Bran who built the Wall, he may also play a role in other aspects of Westerosi history that are essential to the survival of mankind in the impending war against the White Walkers. His time traveling abilities may even be the key to their defeat, making him one of — if not the — most important characters in the series.

Hi all! Here's just a short inquiry. Which is your fave sport to watch? Was it someone who inspired you to watch it, or was it a specific event related to that sport that got you interested? How often do you watch events from that sport?



And which is the biggest sports event you have been to?



What about practicing a sport? Which is the one you have practiced the most? Do you practice one at the moment, and how frequently? Have you competed professionally?

I liked that one!

My fave "theory":

Lyanna Mormont made the Mad King mad
Ever since Bran’s Hodorrific powers came to light, fans have been eager to gobble up the all-bran breakfast cereal, i.e. blame Bran for all that happens, happened and will happen. As part of that, some fans claim that Bran showed the Mad King something that made him mad. But what was it that Bran showed him? White Walkers? Ice spiders as big as hounds? Maybe, just maybe, it was the sheer awesomeness of Lyanna Mormont. That’s more than enough to turn anyone batshit crazy, don’t you think?

Measles outbreak kills 17 unvaccinated children in Romania

A measles outbreak in Romania has killed 17 children and infected thousands more since September due to poverty and an anti-vaccination movement.

Romanian health minister Florian Bodog said that none of the children who died from the highly contagious virus had been vaccinated, adding that the last victim was a one-year-old girl from the northern city of Satu Mare.

More than 3,400 people have been infected since February 2016 compared with the year before when the country registered seven cases but no deaths, Mr Bodog said, according to the Hotnews.ro site.


...I suppose the Church is happy now? Presumably getting autism is impossible when you die of measles!?

Predictably, the CIA is shifting the focus on the leakers rather than the content of the leaks. They are now saying the purpose of WikiLeaks is to undermine the intelligence services' capacity to defend the US from its enemies.

What about the intelligence services' undermining of their own citizens' civil freedoms?

A crater formed in Siberia's permafrost is growing at an alarming rate

Near the Yana river basin, in a vast area of permafrost, there is a dramatic tadpole-shaped hole in the ground: the Batagaika crater.

The crater is also known as a "megaslump" and it is the largest of its kind: almost 0.6 miles (1km) long and 282ft (86m) deep. But these figures will soon change, because it is growing quickly.

Poor lass.

‘Black Mirror’ Creator Predicts Trump Will Be President: ‘I Find It F*cking Terrifying’

Charlie Brooker, the showrunner of the acclaimed dystopian sci-fi series, is convinced that Donald Trump will win the presidential election. God help us all.

...And he was right. Even if he didn't take his own prediction seriously at the time. I watched that Black Mirror episode the other day, The Waldo Moment. The similarities are eery. And that one did not end so well.
