Game of Thrones as a reality show
If anyone is destined to kill Petyr, I want it to be Sansa. But not because she hates him, wants revenge etc., but as a part of her own game of thrones. That would show us that she has learnt Littlefinger’s lessons and is capable of continuing the game, partly His game.
But, of course, I’d prefer if they just rule together. 😀
OK – my favorite characters on Game of Thrones are the strong women – Dernarys (sp?), Arya, even Cat (before, well, we all know what happened, right?), Brianne. Sansa is a bit of a victim. But maybe she will grow and learn. Maybe she will get in touch with her inner shield-maiden and stop thinking about “what’s a good catch” and “who can I marry?” Heck – I think it would be awesome if she realised how gentle Tyrion really is – and fell in love with him.

The Moon is Now a Wi-Fi Hotspot
Complimentary Wi-Fi is so commonplace that a business advertising its “hotspot” in the window seems somewhat passé. But a new hotspot location should impress even the most jaded among us: For the first time, scientists have demonstrated it’s possible to beam a wireless Internet signal across the 238,900 miles separating Earth from the moon. The demonstration, done by researchers at NASA and MIT, means that future moon explorers could theoretically check in at Mare Imbrium and post lunar selfies with greater speed than you do from your home network. The team will present its findings June 9 at the CLEO laser technology conference in California. (via The Moon is Now a Wi-Fi Hotspot – D-brief | DiscoverMagazine.com)
Wi-Fi on the MOON? So why is my home network so slow?
More parallels between Game of Thrones and real history.
The following is a list of all the Classic and New Who Episodes available on DVD. In general, Classic Stories are available as single title release DVDs, though some of the individual titles are available in box sets. Episodes made prior to 1970 were filmed in black and white. In general, the New Who (2005 – ) stories are available in season box sets and in DVD or Blu-Ray format. Some of the New Who stories were also released individually (such as the specials) and the Matt Smith stories are available in half-season sets as well. Please note “season” and “series” are used interchangably to describe a single year of the series (even an academic year). Quick note on my personal short hand – these lists originally came from Excel, and to save space a / symbol denotes “of the”, as in “Day / Daleks” means “Day of the Daleks”.
Yes, I assembled this list and posted it to tumblr myself. I did not make the “Quote-cloud” pics, I found those on Facebook, I think, but I do think they are awesome!
