Re: A Game of ... THEY KILLED WHO?!?!? (hbo spoilers)

My 3 picks for the iron throne were Gendry, Robin, or Podrick. I threw out Bran as my safety why the fuck not pick. I am still upset with being even that little bit right.

Re: Home $weet Home

Yo. Anyone have any thoughts on foreclosures in nicer areas? Are people still smashing everything to bits like supposedly happened in 08'?

Re: Home $weet Home

Day 2 of looking into homes and potentially making an offer will begin shortly. Traveller isn't happy with just making a lowball offer but we looked at a few more houses and the only potential purchase was a bi-level idiot homeowner that bricked in their garage. So no garage and it's a bi-level. I w...

No dice on the house. They won't budge on the price despite it being a fixer upper*. I talked to the realtor guy. He said no one but investors were looking at the property anyway.

Re: Iran (so far away)

I can’t imagine it will be effective. Wars are popular when they get people to rally around the flag because they feel under attack. Who the fuck has sympathy for the Saudis or is scared of the Iranians that isn’t already in Team Red? Especially when we’re pulling money from warfighting to build po...

Well, I guess War with Iran is the 2020 re-election strategy. Amazing how the “don’t trust anonymous sources” crowd is all in on one random DC anonymous source that admitted didn’t have direct info, but yet firmly blamed Iran for attacking the oil tankers.
That is my fear.

My condolences to everyone who has been watching GoT since the beginning. I'm not being snarky. It sucks when a show you've put a lot of time into goes off the rails. It really shouldn't be a surprise to most though. Ever since season 6 the show was substituting tight writing and character pieces f...
