TwitterFacebook

Just like almost everyone else in the United States, Google is amped about the total solar eclipse sweeping the nation on Monday. 

An adorable new doodle reimagines the solar eclipse not as the result of the orbital motion of heavenly bodies, but as the product of a game between two aliens tossing the moon in front of the sun. 

It’s pretty cute.

Killian Burns was on his way to Dublin to watch the Kerry versus Mayo Gaelic football match on Saturday when he hit a wall of traffic. A camel of all things was munching away at grass with its body smack in the middle of on-coming traffic.

Yep, just chilling in the middle of the road completely unconcerned with the long line of cars piling up behind it.

Burns took out his phone to record the peculiar sight. In the video, a man runs over and leads the camel out of harm’s way.

‘Game of Thrones’ creators break down Jon and Dany’s possible romance in epic analysis video

TwitterFacebook

Last night’s episode of Game of Thrones was undeniably a shocker, but among the appalling moments was a really intense scene featuring Dany and Jon. 

Following the death of Viserion, Daenerys is heartbroken, but when she sees Jon Snow returning on the back of Coldhands’ horse she looks visibly relieved.  

“I think it’s a big moment for her in terms of the way she feels about him,” David Benioff, GoT executive producer and writer says during the “Inside the Episode video”. “I think neither of them really knew exactly how powerful their feelings were towards each other until this moment.”

It’s incredibly sad, as Jon and Daenerys’ mutual attraction develops as the Mother of Dragons suffers the loss of one of her children. She’s in a lot of pain. And Jon Snow clearly feels responsible for that. “I’m sorry,” he says, holding her hand.  Read more…
