On House of the Dragon, Rhaenyra Gave Peace a Chance“I wasn’t ready to be Queen of the Seven Kingdoms,” Rhaenyra tells her young son Jacaerys, speaking about when Viserys first named her his heir, all those years ago. Queen Rhaenyra doesn’t even have a chance to breathe before a ship arrives — a ship bearing a flag of the Targaryen family sigil of a three-headed dragon, but in green. That’s when Otto hands her the page from Alicent’s book that Rhaenyra ripped out back when they were children. The smile Eve Best gives when she’s clearing the room so Rhaenyra and Daemon can argue is outstanding. If you’re wondering why Daemon went into the caves of the Dragonmont and sang a Valyrian lullaby to a dragon, that dragon was Vermithor.3 months ago Gizmodo Australia

Admittedly, many of Yarvin’s ideas seem like they could never happen, like the forced disbanding of private institutions like Harvard and the New York Times.3 months ago Gizmodo Australia

The announcement by Liz Truss that she would be resigning came after a mere 45 days in office. The sequence of events from the moment Truss entered Downing Street on 6 September is bound to induce vertigo. The paper poses the following question on the site: ‘Will Liz Truss be Prime Minister within the ten-day shelf life of a lettuce?’At lunchtime on 20 October, when Truss made her resignation statement, the lettuce received a plastic gold crown. The caption was one of triumph: ‘The lettuce outlasted Liz Truss.’ Then came the national anthem, accompanied by champagne.3 months ago Independent Australia
