  1. His point is that, whether from the book or not, it's a stretch of a scene that would be harrassed if it came out now. But, yes, the reality is that a drop of dirt in a sea of pure water becomes hard to care about. But shovel after shovel is aggravating. And, btw, which scene is more obnoxious? 1. Sam hiding poorly and not getting noticed anyway 2. Sam fighting an overwhelming number of undead beings that just walked on entire swaths of armies, getting knocked down and swarmed, living in that state for 20 minutes, then just lying down and crying while the battle continued? Degree matters. They're not even on remotely the same level. Comparing then is hilarious.
  2. I hadn't thought of it before, but a scooter that is maxed out at the speed of a bicycle is definitely a lot like a crotch rocket zig-zagging in and out of traffic at 120 mph. Good point.
  3. Clearly, your creative and meaningful insults of "coward" and "pussy" have left me so astounded and backfooted that I'm unable to muster a quality defense. Please take it easier on me going forward.
  4. They're all pretty small words, actually. You should read more, sweetheart.
  5. One grown ass man. Unless you're extra fat. I think 220.
  6. I saw that. Hilarious. Cars are totally safe.
  7. Hah. I have to cross the street two times. The risk is there if I walk or ride. And I'll probably walk it across those streets.
  8. Wait. Why am I not gonna last on a scooter? Come at me, bro.
  9. Before the draft in Nashville, I'd never considered one. But they're pretty fun and easy to use and can make your commute better or cheaper, depending on circumstance. Does anyone own a scooter? I just bought the new Ninebot Max because of its weather durability and range, combined with intro pricing through the indiegogo. I'm going to start parking a few miles from the office and save $80 per month. The scooter saves a good bit of time getting to and from the car. No year long indecision for me. I'm down for those savings. If anyone is interested, feel free to earn me crap using my referral code. They're almost sold out of the discounted model quantity, btw. https://igg.me/at/NinebotKickScooterMAX/x/21837578#/
  10. Longtime worried about the important things, I see. You know who else is really good at golf? Kim Jung Un. ANOTHER THING THEY HAVE IN COMMON!
  11. Nobody knows. But the author has said many of the characters are in generally the same positions, just that he'll get there differently.
  12. Jon coming back is happening in the books. That's been foreshadowed and basically confirmed. It's not a show invention.
  13. Yeah ... that wouldn't be in keeping with Arya or Sansa.
  14. They killed Jon as a "traitor." Why would they think that if him? Because he was inviting the invading army, that just killed their friends, comrades and (in some cases) family into the realm. You should watch the show some. Poor SK and his mental blocks.
  15. It's fascinating to see how incapable you are of putting yourself in another's shoes to see their perspective. In their minds, they were protecting people and Jon was betraying the Watch. They wouldn't agree that Wildlings are anything but the enemy. They said as much. It couldn't be more clear. And they betrayed their vows to protect the realm from that threat. Your combined views on the show are astounding. What are you watching?
  16. Greyworm let Tyrion become Hand with no fight. There's no reason to think Jon had to go North. And, even then, Greyworm left immediately. He didn't have to continue North after about five minutes of walking past Greyworm. And that's only addressing what would be consistent with what was presented in the scene they chose to write. In reality, they didn't have to choose to write it that way. That could have easily gone another way that had better symbolism and presentation without the wonky Greyworm BS and certainly without having the NW continue existing for no reason, which they acknowledged and they glossed over out of convenience. What's a better reason for Jon exile north? A. Greyworm demanded he join an order that had no reason to exist, then left, rendering it unenforceable, and they made him go anyway. B. He didn't want it, Targaryens and lines of succession aren't desired, he belongs in the North and he would need to be away so as not to be used as a pawn in future uprisings?
  17. Lol. No. Alliser Thorne and others thought they were saving the realm and innocents by betraying their vows and killing their leader. Especially Olly, who loved / respected Jon.
  18. One thing I haven't seen discussed much is that Jon didn't just love Dany and he didn't just want to honor his commitment. One of the biggest reasons he would struggle with that choice is that he's been on the other side. Jon was the leader making unpopular choices. Not just as King in the North when he was frustrated by Sansa & others after he knelt but, more importantly, Jon was the Lord Commander of the Nights Watch. He made unpopular decisions he thought were right. And he was killed for it. By killing Dany, Jon became Alliser Thorne. He became Olly. It's the ultimate reversal of fate and dramatic juxtaposition.
  19. More the mechanics and rationale presented. If Jon was free and said, again, "I don't want it, I never have" and he said he was going North because that's where he feels good and so he couldn't be used as a pawn to bring down Bran ... that's so much better than join the NW that exists for no reason so that we can placate Greyworm
