If you didn't see Game of Thrones last week, we don't want to spoil things for you. So, how about we just insert a buffer in the form of a paragraph break here.
Hell, here's another one, just to be safe.
We cool? Great.
It's been a whirlwind week for the Game of Thrones. On TV, King Joffrey was murdered (to the rue of some and the delight of many more). And, in print, Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin finally explained just how large the ancient species of dragons grows in an excerpt from his forthcoming history of Westeros, The World of Ice and Fire.
With the text, he included an image of Aegon Targaryen, ancestor of the spitfire Daenerys, riding one massive beast. Careful readers of Martin's novels will note that the scaly dude depicted is most likely Balerion, the largest and fiercest of the Targaryens' dragons. Whether or not Dany's trio of scaly children — Drogon, Viserion, and Rhaegal — will eventually reach 747 size remains to be seen.
This concludes your nerd alert of the day. (HuffPo)
