3. Tiger is back and wins the Masters!! - what an exciting win for Tiger... and me!!!!
4. And GOT S8 premiere still to come!!!!!!!

-On and on

I am so pumped! LFG!!!

I'm looking forward to seeing how Bran has affected this whole series in ways that haven't been revealed yet. The Mad King saying Burn Them All has to be Bran back in time trying to fix things. Was he trying to tell him that they need to burn all the dead knowing the NK was coming and could raise everyone up for his army? Did he get stuck in the original Stark who was turned into the NK and actually is not coming to destroy everything but has another motive for coming south of the wall?


I know this is the common theory/thought right now, but I really hope this isn't the case. Bran being more involved than telling John who he is and how to defeat the WW just isn't where I want this to go.

This. That is such a garbage theory that reeks of pathetic fanboy projection.

You have too much of that crap, and it takes all the agency and responsibility for their actions away from the characters, as their actions would have been preordained and directed.

It would ruin the outcome of the story since it was all fated regardless of their actions.

It's going to be interesting. This seems like it could go 2 ways still.

1. all the myths, legends, visions and prophecies play a large part in the end game here
or
2. they were nothing but myths, legends and prophecies and it plays out straightforward perhaps even ending the era of magic in effect.

I'm definitely more prone toward them playing a large part - because it is fantasy in it's nature and origin - and I think it can be done without too much time spent on Bran visions or flashbacks, etc. (or even without explaining how it fits into those but still happening). And we have seen magic already - Jon, Beric, Dany, other visions, and the dragons, etc. It is hard for me to believe none of the rest of it plays a part. That and the groundwork has been laid with - Azor Ahai explained, other prophecies that have come true (Cersei's) and a lot of the history and backstory for the north and WW legends, etc.

And there is a danger I suppose - too much fantasy and magic could turn some off. Too little and book readers will be disappointed. That's why I still think at least some of it happens and matters but they don't spend too much time on it. Gotta find that sweetspot.

I'm new to this, but I agree that Bran being any more of the past than has already been revealed is a little too much for my liking. I hope he's just the new raven and everything that happens is due to present time and present happenings. Sure there will he references and things happening because of the past. But any more time warp bran affecting things of huge significance is not how I want things to go down

I don't disagree, but I guess that means GRRM wont ever be returning to A&M for his "honorary degree"

Anyone know a good recap video? It's for my parents. They love the show but can barely keep characters straight, they will be really lost after the hiatus.

It might be a little too late, but I think it was Spilner who posted this one a while back. Just watched it, and it's a quick, really great recap...

No they aren't.


Encyclopedia Britannica says:


Quote:

Although Australia is sometimes called an "island continent," most geographers consider islands and continents to be separate things. According to Britannica, an island is a mass of land that is both "entirely surrounded by water" and also "smaller than a continent." By that definition, Australia can't be an island because it's already a continent.
and

Quote:

Island, any area of land smaller than a continent and entirely surrounded by water. Islands may occur in oceans, seas, lakes, or rivers. A group of islands is called an archipelago. Islands may be classified as either continental or oceanic. Oceanic islands are those that rise to the surface from the floors of the ocean basins. Continental islands are simply unsubmerged parts of the continental shelf that are entirely surrounded by water. Many of the larger islands of the world are of the continental type.


So islands may be "continental" islands (part of a continent in that they are part of that continental plate) or oceanic if they are not.

But islands are defined as something smaller than continents and distinguished by their tectonic plate location.

For example Greenland is an island because it is on the same continental plate as North America.

Whereas Australia (4x larger) is a continent not purely by it's size but because it is on it's own continental plate.

https://www.britannica.com/story/is-australia-an-island

And in the world of GRRM we defer to him - it is one of the main land masses of their known world and HE defines it as a continent.


Anyway.....we need some new material for sure it's been too long....lol. 47 minutes and counting.....

got these at the store the other day and it is not just packaging they are stamped for the 4 major "houses" left if you include the NK as a house.

I'm eating them during the show based on who is kicking ass at the moment - I expect the NK ones to be gone first.
