  1. If you haven't seen it ... don't open the thread. Reactions? Bran is getting creepy. Wouldn't bother me to see him get knocked off. And why is he telling Samuel to tell John all this stuff? Not like he didnt just find out his dad and brother were burned to a crisp ... oh wait. Speaking of that ... that puts an interesting dynamic into the Jon/Denarius relationship. Forgot Jon wasn't privy to that information. It was a pretty tame episode. The most disappointing thing ... I cannot believe Cersei slept with that dirtbag.
  2. Unfortunately ... I'm at the age where I have to look at stuff like that. Soy sauce is extremely high in sodium. Even the low sodium stuff is really high. You can use regular
  3. Simple chicken marinade 1/3 cup honey 1/3 cup olive oil 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce Salt and pepper if desired Simple recipe of stuff most everyone has that gives chicken a little something extra when grilling. You can let it marinade for an hour or even 8+. I made chicken shish kabobs for mothers day. Cubed the chicken and let it sit for a few hours.
  4. I was hoping as Cersei went downstairs in the keep that she passed a dungeon with a still chained up Ellaria Sand with decomposed body directly across. Or as she passed another dungeon, she muttered the words shame to one of the figures jailed up. Just to show how bad ass she was.
  5. She can't die in with fire, right? She's survived a ton of fires without a scratch. That would be cool though
  6. Edit ... changed text color in the spoiler tag. Las - can we get it to default to black?
  7. ‘Game of Thrones’ Creators Plan to Be ‘Very Drunk and Far From the Internet’ When Series Finale Airs Not sure what to make of that.
  8. Not sure why the cup was a surprise:
  9. Certainly looks like they are setting that up. Her closest friend/adviser is dead. Her lover revealed he was her nephew and has a better claim to the throne. She has 1 child (dragon) left. Her advisers are questioning her. Sansa is working to undermine her. And it appears Cersai is winning. The problem is ... its coming too fast. They built Joffrey over time and we grew to hate him. They spent years building up Danny into being something different.
  10. Which lover has gotten crazier ... Brienne or Gendry? Which shocked you more ... Rhaegal or Missandei? Who seems to be going off the deep end more ... Sansa or Daenerys? Are Bronn and Jamie just trying to pick the winning side? Why have the writers turned Jon into a complete dipshit? He was worthless in the last battle. Now he's blabbing to everyone about his heritage yet says he doesn't want the power that comes with it. No wildlings, no targaryens, very few unsullied ... what does Daenerys have left? Seems like a lot to wrap up in 2 episodes. Just unfortunate they couldn't take the time and do it right.
  11. So ... Current cell + internet < unlimited data plan cell? What's the cost difference? 4g speeds are really good and would blow away your current access. Add mobile hot spot and you'd be golden. Unless you have 0 signal and can't tap into it.
  12. Have you investigated cell repeaters and/or boosters?
  13. Browns got OBJ and a good D end for the 17th pick, a safety and a guard, beyond thrilled. Rest were cover guys and lbs. Hopefully a couple of starters. Couldn't be happier!
  14. I rewatched last night via HBO Go stream. Picture was much better. During a high demand broadcast like that, television providers compress the shit out of their signals. Complete bs, but whatever. Second thing, any display is going to struggle with that many blacks and greys. Wish the director (and video game designers) would keep that in mind.
  15. I saw both yesterday ... about as entertaining of a day as I can imagine. The cool thing was both lived up to the hype. Only minor complaint was the picture quality of HBO seemed to be lacking.
  16. 2 down ... 4 left. Some cool scenes. I liked Brienne being knighted. I'm a sucker for stuff like that. Aria taking control and having her coming out party. Liked seeing everyone sitting around the fire BSing. No action or anything of significance other than setting up the battle.
  17. Its making money for everyone, right? So why not take the time and do it right. Unless the folks involved are just sick of doing it. Lot of them have gotten big time now.
  18. The last season could have been 4 seasons. Remember, only 5 episodes left
  19. I am VERY glad they changed the release back to Christmas.
  20. Don't get me started on the Force. I have no idea what the Force can/can't do now. We are entering the third film and Rey's skills are off the charts. Consider it took 2.5 movies for Luke to acquire his skills ... he couldn't even defend against that droid on the Falcon the first time. Anakin trained while growing up with Obi Wan. Kylo Ren was trained by Luke, then later by Snoke. Part of what made Star Wars so great was the natural progression of the characters. You could see their growth and maturity. Especially with Luke and his skills. In SW, he had 0 skills, in ESB, Vader toyed with him, and finally in Jedi, he matured and was Vader's equal. In this story, Rey figured it out for herself to the point where she was able to beat KR ... Luke and Snokes prize apprentice ... from the get go.
  21. For me, it was a bucket list thing. It was THE reason I started in the north and worked my way south. We were very lucky to see them. In fact, we happened to be at the best spot of the trip (on a farm away from any cities) with the clearest evening of the trip. So we were extremely lucky that all of that coincided. Also saw them a bit on the flight out there. But something about seeing them from the ground with the stars. I wouldn't go there just to see the lights because its not something you can schedule.
  22. Spent last week in Iceland with the family for a spring break trip. This was our itinerary: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1SjQuaECbjIruRluTr6IjZRVzlygLAz75&usp=sharing We stayed in a different location every night, except the last 2 that were spent in the capital. Rented a car (4 wheel drive with studded tires) and drove around the island. Went to the Blue Lagoon: Spent time in the 2nd largest city of Akureyri: Rode horses at a farm and happened to catch the Northern Lights (my photography skills aren't great and it wasn't the strongest aurora): Went to the Myvatn Nature baths: Saw the Joklusarlon Iceberg Lagoon and Diamond beach: Saw a billion waterfalls, some of which we could get very close and even walked behind 1: Walked between the continental plates at Thingvellir National Park: Walked along their black sand beaches: Saw some turf roofed churches: Saw the main church Hallgrimskirkja in Reykjavik and even got a view from the top: My impressions: Absolutely beautiful country. No matter where we were, the views were amazing. Food is off the charts expensive. They can't grow chicken food on the island, so chicken is just as expensive as steak and salmon. But it didn't seem to matter, everything was very expensive. The weather, and driving in the weather, at the time we were there (maybe its different in the Summer) is very unpredictable. I drove in 0 visibility blizzards, massive wind gusts, ice sheets, and some very questionable "roads". Road closures are quite common. Speaking of wind ... it is the 3rd windiest place in the world. The first 2 are uninhabited. I wouldn't call native Icelanders the friendliest people in the world ... or any Europeans I met. A percentage of people everywhere are tourists. From the capital to the smallest of fishing villages, there are tourists everywhere. It can make driving that much more of an adventure. I never knew there were no clothes dryers in Europe. That went over well with the Wife. All and all, I had a fantastic experience. There is so much more to see and do and there are parts of the island I would love to explore in-depth. Would I go back ... maybe. The only reason I wouldn't is because the cost of food is so expensive ... but I am so glad we went.
  23. No idea how the locals afford it. However, every native Icelander was thin. Not a fat person in site. Wherever we ate, dinner was north of $150. No appetizers, maybe a beer. Breakfast was over $60. And it was pastries and coffee. Not a typical bacon and eggs denny's breakfast. Grocery store runs were $100 for a few snacks and stuff. Our beer run at the national store for a 10 pack and another 6 pack was $58 http://www.sjavarpakkhusid.is/menu/1 This was a very typical typical menu. Not a fancy restaurant by any means. 1000kr=$8.36=£6.39 I'll put it like this, our food bill was greater than the lodging cost for the trip and my family aren't big eaters.
