"Tywin Lannister is a different sort of character. No one would ever find him or his cause sympathetic. He is a model character for another deep misunderstanding that is widespread and does not stop with A Song of Ice and Fire, but extends to similar characters in other franchises and, most disturbingly, to reality as well. Let’s call this kind of character the “asshole who gets the job done.”"

Stefan Sasse of The Tower of the Hand takes Tywin Lannister and his fans to the woodshed. As I’ve said time and time again, I’m hard pressed to come up with a more baffling phenomenon than readers who take Martin’s depiction of a Hobbesian world that rewards amoral ruthlessness as an endorsement of amoral ruthlessness.

which fucking fedora wearing friendzoned nerd made this thing

yeah but notice that the seal’s intent is to eat those fish and the shark offers a mutually beneficial relationship for them
in which a dudebro unintentionally makes a really accurate analogy for the reason that they’re single forever

That’s a whale shark. They’re docile and in no way threatening to people or those fish depicted. Seals, by contrast, will attack people, possibly out of a frustrated sense of entitlement combined with poor socialization skills.

Well that backfired spectacularly.

Princess Morbucks serving some truth tea. 

how come she has fingers but none of the main characters of the show do?

She could afford to buy fingers

I think the stub arms are pretty specific to the PPGs. I remember one episode they were body switched with someone and there was confusion over how to work fingers/how to manipulate objects without them.

I find it really interesting that the historical men like Vincent Van Gogh, Winston Churchill and Richard Nixon portrayed in Moffat Who are always three dimensional and treated respectfully, while the historical women like Elizabeth the First and Nefertiti, are always love sick idiots drooling over the Doctor.

It almost seems like Moffat cannot take women seriously, even if they ruled nations.
