Oh. That’s boring.

Saw this on my way to work today and was intrigued. Is this a dialogue between a die-hard feminist and a male? (My mother had the “if we can send one man to the moon, why not all of them?” bumpersticker). Or is it “men” as in “everyone” – but not today, thank you.

Googled it just now. They’re both Game of Thrones quotations.


We missed that one. Uncle B hates fantasy. We started watching it, but he was like, “if there are dragons, I’m out.” And you probably know how worked out.

We’re between serieses at the moment. Netflix sucks. We gave up on Amazon originals. I’ve got some stuff recorded, but meh.

I got a boxed set of Utopia for a birthday gift, but I can’t face it. It’s really well done (which is why I asked for a copy) but deeply violent and nasty.

It’s about a “Russian flu” being bioengineered and deliberately released for…purposes.

Yes. Quite.

But why, do you suppose, did they take off the “T” at the beginning of “To”?

The T probably wore off. Half the top bar is missing on WHAT too.

Game of Thrones – shame how they ended it. I’m hearing dreadful things about Amazon’s new Lord of the Rings show in the works. I’ve all but given up on watching television anymore.

If we’re going to talk inevitability I prefer this one

“Then out spake brave Horatius,
The Captain of the Gate:
To every man upon this earth
Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better
Than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers,
And the temples of his gods”

“And when grim Death appears
in a few but happy years
He’ll say oh won’t you come along with me
I’ll say begone ya knave
For King Bacchus gave me Leave (rhyme that with Knave…heh)
to take another Cruiscin Lan”

And Weasy – that means y’all missed all the penes according to the South Park Weiner song send up.

We like to think that we men have so much power
But we can bare move the minute hand and never the hour.
For forces like the moon that moves the tide
Take e’en a man’s best-rowed boat for a ride

Is Sci-Fi out for Uncle B, or is just Fantasy that he dislikes? Because The Expanse on Prime (was on SyFy until they gave up on it) is good watching. Also lots of engineers on YouTube geek out about how the depiction of physics in space is spot on.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
