What's the over/under on number of WILD CARDS books that are release before TWOW? "Infinite" even if it's the correct answer, doesn't make for a very fun game.
I'm sure it's not infinite. Even if it's easy work, it's work, and we know what the mountain thinks of working. Somewhere on the internet there's a thread full of wild cards fans angry about grrm's blog posts about this dumb TV show.

I can understand how Westeros is shaped vaguely like Britain, but it's so stupid when people start moving and turning landmasses around and then go "Look how similar they are!" If you're cramming landmasses together and rearranging them and spinning them around then anything looks like anything else.

I agree with this, but having said that, the bottom half of Westeros seems pretty decisively upside down Ireland, looking at that. Having said THAT, while Northern Westeros has the obvious Northern England/Scotland/Hadrian's Wall thing going on, the bottom half is nothing like Ireland so, erm, whatever. Just laziness on GRUM's part where he couldn't even be bothered to draw a random squiggly coastline.

Yes he is. Though it's not as funny/horrifying as the fact that Kingkiller Chronicles is also apparently going to get TV/Movie treatment.

Which is fitting, because Rothfuss is "the next GRRM" and like GRRM he's busy doing everything other than write the next book in his series.

2. While you are correct in saying that the society owns

3. You have not for a second demonstrated here why

4. I love the way that you equate "state" with "bureaucracy". Is that how you really feel about the state

The latest news that I saw regarding TWOW release date now mentions early 2017. I mean seriously, it always seems to be just 1 year away. Honestly guys, it's totally coming soon.

Never google TWOW release date because there are all of these websites that then populate your google news feed that always predict some random date in the future with headlines that make you think there has been an actual announcement.

Find out the release date for George R R Martin with this one weird trick. One Fan's reaction will amaze you.

When this one Fan found out the REAL release date, his reaction went viral.

The one thing the Game of Thrones author doesn't want you to know.

This Game of Thrones fan's response to the release date is absolutely perfect - You won't believe what happens next.

"don't like" as if you could grow accustomed to the genetic predisposition to tasting industrial soap on all your food.

according to some researchers, you can, so i dunno what to tell you: http://www.npr.org/sections/thesalt...be-in-your-head

Overall, Eriksson says these studies demonstrate that DNA does shape our opinion of cilantro, but probably not enough that we can't overcome it. "It isn't like your height, that you're stuck with. People can change it," he says.

One of her nipples found its way between his lips. It was pink and hard and when he sucked on it her milk filled his mouth, mingling with the taste of rum, and he had never tasted anything so fine and sweet and good.


I'm very much enjoying that every time HBO Now runs its ad on twitter and Facebook the comments are like "OMG you spoiled that Jon Snow isn't dead" and then 50 people reply to that "OMG you dick we didn't know that!" and apparently none of the fans of this show have seen this show before.

If you hate cilantro it's because you have a genetic disorder. Please keep reading bad fantasy novels about child molesters and incest instead of breeding.
