The sigil of house Lannister shouldn’t be a lion; it should be a cheetah, because cheetahs are seriously inbred.

Edit: Never mind. Redditor beat me to it.

So I just started watching Game of Thrones and I think I’ve found a serious plot hole

Waaaaaay too many candles. Everywhere. Where are all these candles coming from? Are they lit individually by servants who anticipate where the drama will take place next? Do they replace them constantly? I feel like this would get expensive.

Also, torches.

"Ancient DNA sequencing has recently provided high-coverage archaic human genomes. However, the evolution of epigenetic regulation along the human lineage remains largely unexplored. We reconstructed the full DNA methylation maps of the Neandertal and the Denisovan by harnessing the natural degradation processes of methylated and unmethylated cytosines. Comparing these ancient methylation maps to those of present-day humans, we identified ~2000 differentially methylated regions (DMRs). Particularly, we found substantial methylation changes in the HOXD cluster that may explain anatomical differences between archaic and present-day humans. Additionally, we found that DMRs are significantly more likely to be associated with diseases. This study provides insight into the epigenetic landscape of our closest evolutionary relatives and opens a window to explore the epigenomes of extinct species."

Hah, sure, I’ll take that. Thank you. I appreciate it. Cheers.

Oh my me.

Has anyone ever called you a horny aeglefinus?

Well, it was hard to pin down what he stood for… but, it’s certainly not what he died for!"
