    $2300 hot dog
    So what dog do you get for your dough? Well, the chef starts with a foot long dog "made of richly marbled wagyu beef dry aged for 60 days by DeBragga" and lace it with black truffles. Then they put it on a brioche bun toasted with white truffle butter and slathered with organic W Ketchup that has been "seasoned with saffron to make it even more precious" as well as with Mustarde de Charroux imported from France. And that's not all! "The accoutrements continue with Vidalia onions caramelized in Dom Perignon Champagne and 100 year old balsamic vinegar" not to mention "house made organic sauerkraut braised in Louis Roederer Cristal and inflected with rare platinum oscetra caviar" and THEN, the dog is topped with house made relish from Gordy’s Pickle Jar. Oh, and some gold leaf for good measure.

    http://gothamist.com/2012/07/23/2300_hot_dog_is_absurd_real.php

    The thought of buying one, holding it up, and then just slathering it with Heinz ketchup fills me with mirth.

    I like that you have to give them 48 hours notice in order to make it.

    It's a fucking hot dog.

    That's how long it takes them to stop laughing about someone paying $2300 for a hot dog.

    Okay, so I'm reading A Storm of Swords on the subway this morning and I get to an incest scene and GRRM actually takes the time to go through the motions of what happens. Jesus Fucking Christ I don't need to read incest fantasy porn.

    Seriously, GRRM, who is The Father Christmas of Nerdery, is a really perverted dude.

    There's joy in his food descriptions but none in the incest or rape that goes on. That's enough restraint, I feel.

    I don't love reading that shit, but I appreciate that he doesn't shy away. It's part of the appeal of the series.

    the book version of the lotr movies is so insanely boring

    why did they even write the books when the movies were clearly better

    We had to read almost all of those books in 5th grade. I was bored out of my tiny little mind, and basically faked my way through all the assignments.

    5th.... grade?

    I mean, I read them when I was young, but I sure as shit didn't "get" them until a few years later. Your school was weird.

    It was the gifted/talented program in one of the better public schools in town, so we got to do a lot of stuff that was weird. I was one of like...two not-rich kids there, something I didn't really realize until a decade later.

    I'm a little ashamed to admit that I didn't care for them at the time. I would hide in the computer lab and play Oregon Trail and Myst.

    Hi5

    It is the best game I've played for people actually interested in roleplaying. It does require a pretty solid commitment from the players though.

    It's worse when it is read to you by Roy Dotrice (the creeper who played the pyromancer in season 2, amongst other things).

    Every time he gets to describe Greyjoy sexings, he just seems a bit too happy about the whole thing. It's horrifying.

    I didn't read LoTR till I was a Junior in high school. I was captivated by them then. I read the Hobbit a year before. I think I would of missed a lot of the books if I read them earlier.

    And no one should give the cartoon Hobbit shit. That thing was great. Now the LotR cartoon is pure shite.

    "Hurry," she was whispering now, "quickly, quickly, now, do it now, do me now. Jaime Jaime Jaime." Her hands helped guide him. "Yes," Cersei said as he thrust, "my brother, sweet brother, yes, like that, yes, I have you, you're home now, you're home now, you're home." She kissed his ear and stroked his short bristly hair. Jaime lost himself in her flesh. He could feel Cersei's heart beating in time with his own, and the wetness of blood and seed where they were joined.

    I am not going to put this in spoilers because I am going to simply give the inspiration for the series.

    He bases his work heavily off of the Wars of the Roses (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wars_of_the_Roses), and as such is filled with the political intrigue, vying for the throne, noble houses at each others throats, and incest that was super prolific amongst the nobles of the time.

    He also does not shy away from describing raw and unsettling things; where others would end a scene on a suggestion, he will linger on a moment and leave you feeling a little sick to your stomach.
