Incest in Game of Thrones - why Jon and Daenerys shouldn't have children

Warning: contains spoilers   If you had to sum up Game of Thrones to a newcomer, two words would immediately spring to mind: “dragons” and “incest”. The latter has been a key plot point since the very first episode. Without Jaime and Cersei’s scandalous rutting, Bran Stark might still be climbing the walls of Winterfell, and Ned would still have a head. At the end of season 7, Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow's simmering romantic tension had bubbled over into full-blown sex and, judging by th...

Meet the Maker of Middle-Earth: The Magic in Tolkien’s Story

Tolkien, a biopic by Finnish director Dome Karukoski, focuses on the early life of famed author J.R.R. Tolkien. Heavily intercut, chronologically it begins with his late childhood in the idyllic village of Sarehole, and ends with his undergraduate years at Oxford and his experiences as a newly commissioned officer in the horror and mud of the Battle of the Somme.

Walmart rises after posting its best first quarter in nine years

Are We Sincere about Biblical Authority?

In my previous post, I noted that the right context for interpreting the Bible accurately isn’t the history of Christianity in any of its creedal distillations or denominational forms. But I went even further—I said that the biblical context isn’t any modern world context, period. The right context for understanding the Bible is the context that produced the Bible. That seems simple, but experience has taught me that commitment to this patently obvious truth isn’t easy. The biblical context ...

Federal tax reform slashed corporate taxes, but some state levies bump business rates back up

Monet Phone Wallet/Stand/Ring Review: I Hate How Much I Love This Thing

Cameron Summerson You know those wallets you stick to the back of your phone? How about the rings that also work as kickstands? Well, Monet is both of those things in one. And I hate how much I love it. For the majority of my time as a smartphone user, I’ve been totally opposed to cases. In recent years, I’ve come to accept them as a necessary evil—as phones become more “premium,” they also become more slippery and fragile. So cases are pretty much a must. I also refused to stick any of th...

Sunday Afternoon Hockey Thoughts

from Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet, - from what I’m hearing, there is some consensus developing around the top four or five. Jack Hughes and Kaapo Kakko are one-two, with Kaako widening eyes in the early days of the world championships. (Thumbs up to New Jersey’s social media team for lusting after both players on its Twitter feed. Very good.) The Rangers at number two can relax and be happy with whatever they get. A few teams I spoke with believe WHL Vancouver defenceman Bowen Byram...

How a Laguna Niguel merchant hatched a plan to nab thieves who stole $1.2 million in jewels from him

Brian Hassine’s heart raced as he stood alone in the dark behind the Nuggets & Carets jewelry store in Mission Viejo he co-owns with his brother.

Your Funniest, Bloodiest Period Sex Stories

We’re constantly told that periods shouldn’t stop us from getting on with our everyday lives. Aside from the widespread misinformation surrounding menstruation and PMS (no, guys, it’s not just a tummy ache), regularly feature women dancing in pristine white dresses, biking up mountains and even jumping out of airplanes (which is great, if that’s the sort of thing you usually do). But the one activity yet to be acknowledged by advertising and indeed the mainstream narrative is – whisper it –pe...

The journey of sourdough Submitted by Rustic Rye on May 10, 2019 - 7:39am. IMG_0835.JPG  I began baking bread when I was unemployed and feeling pretty down and out in life.
