My last complaint with the books is that his actual writing and pacing skills are not that good. Large chunks of the books are painfully boring to read.
no main characters in reality??? i'm main character in this thread... without me this thread has no viewers or traffic . in all seriousness i expected most of the main characters to die in GOT. i have already read by accident that my two favourite characters have already died in the books but alive in the tv series. anyways hema saying the books are boring than enough evidence for me to never read another overrated author.

in other news, federer got the most easiest draw ever . two challenger players and two weak french guys for his first four rounds than a vulture. roland garros tournament organizers should go to prison for such a disgusting fix.

Only because this mod hunger for permabans is a recent trend. Think of it this way- Gago and Mikey scale a similar level of trolldom and Gago is still around.

I thought the first two seasons did a good job of paring down the book effectively. Also, the really great casting helped. Seems like the third season is not going so well in the TV series.

i thought the first season was boring but i enjoyed seeing sean bean die. second season was excellent and fast paced. third season nothing is happening, it's going at snail pace.

danaerys is building her army, jon snow lost his virginity and theon being tortured for seven episodes straight. everyone else is being emo.... that sums up season three thus far. the dialogue has suffered the most with no bitchness at all .

First, Im way smarter.

Second, only in your parallel universe is my level of trolldom similar to his. He was the Mother of All Trolls.

Third, I won't be around for long and my permaban won't be reversed as his was once. That's a privilege only Federinass' lickers enjoy in this forum.

I should probably have said main characters remain main characters only for short periods of time.

have they changed a lot of things in the tv series?

I don't deny that but that is irrelevant to our current discussion.

He was characterized by a greater volume of posts but I believe you are/were more impactful- probably a result of your point#1. But I do acknowledge that you were absent for long periods of time over the last year and half.

Comparing pre-2008 MTF to post 2008 is as pointless as the weak era debates.

Re: The Attention Seekers - happy birthday, thread!

This does not mean I want you to be permabanned. I have the greatest affection for trolls of all shapes and sizes and especially mensa trolls.

Also, you haven't posted pics of your children as you originally promised.

Re: The Attention Seekers - happy birthday, thread!

Inspired by a popular guide to Understanding the British, I've put together a few entries in a Foreigners' Guide to Understanding Brazilians. Portuguese speakers and Brazilianists are invited to add more in the comments. Hat tip to Brazil-based journalists Andrew Downie and Dom Phillips, who contributed items, and Olivier Teboul, a Frenchman living in Belo Horizonte whose list of "Brazilian curiosities" (in Portuguese) has generated a huge response from amused, and sometimes bemused, locals.

What Brazilians say: Yes (Sim)
What foreigners hear: Yes
What Brazilians mean: Anything from yes through perhaps to no

What Brazilians say: Perhaps (Talvez)
What foreigners hear: Perhaps
What Brazilians mean: No

What Brazilians say: No (Năo)
What foreigners hear (on the very rare occasion a Brazilian says it): No
What Brazilians mean: Absolutely never, not in a million years, this is the craziest thing I've ever been asked

What Brazilians say: I'm nearly there (Tô chegando)
What foreigners hear: He's nearly here
What Brazilians mean: I've set out

What Brazilians say: I'll be there in ten minutes (Vou chegar em dez minutinhos)
What foreigners hear: He'll be here soon
What Brazilians mean: Some time in the next half-hour I'll get up off the sofa and start looking for my car keys

What Brazilians say: I'll show up later (Vou aparecer mais tarde)
What foreigners hear: He'll be here later
What Brazilians mean: I won't be coming

What Brazilians say: Let's stay in touch, ok? (A gente se vę, vamos combinar, ta?)
What foreigners hear: He'd like to stay in touch (though, puzzlingly, we don't seem to have swapped contact details)
What Brazilians mean: No more than a Briton means by: "Nice weather, isn't it?"

What Brazilians say: I'm going to tell you something/ Let me tell you something/ It's the following/ Just look and you'll see (Vou te falar uma coisa/ Deixa te falar uma coisa/ É o seguinte/ Olha só pra vocę ver)
What foreigners hear (especially after many repetitions): He thinks I'm totally inattentive or perhaps mentally deficient
What Brazilians mean: Ahem (it's just a verbal throat-clear)

What Brazilians say: A hug! A kiss! (Um abraço! Um beijo!)
What foreigners hear: I've clearly made quite an impression—we've just met but he/she really likes me!
Waht Brazilians mean: Take care, cheers, bye

What Brazilians say: You speak Portuguese really, really well! (Vocę fala portuguęs super-bem!)
What foreigners hear: How great! My grammar and accent must be coming on a lot better than I thought
What Brazilians mean: How great! A foreigner is trying to learn Portuguese! Admittedly, the grammar and accent are so awful I can barely understand a word... but anyway! A foreigner is trying to learn Portuguese!
