Now that’s what I call bad breath

So. Game of Thrones. I don’t watch it, except the occasional bit when I can’t avoid it (my wife is a fan). Latest episode: dragon burns city. So I watched this short clip in a story about the Simpsons predicting it. Can someone explain to me how it is that the dragon’s fire doesn’t just burn stuff, but blows it up? As soon as it touches a house, the house just bursts apart. Rock-solid castles made of thick stone blow up at the merest hint of warm air. What’s in the fire? TNT?

It’s not the force of the fire, because it’s not coming out that fast, so… all right, it’s just fantasy, I could just as easily ask where the dragons get all the energy to produce the fire from in the first place (perhaps it’s magic). I’m just joking, but it did look kind of fake and silly, even if it’s expensive fake and silly.

Theresa May talks to the nation about her Withdrawal Agreement.

I assume, by the way, that Daenerys is a metaphor for Theresa May and her insane scorched Earth policy (with the dragon as her Withdrawal Agreement).

    Michael Bay-esque “visuals over logic” convenience. It’s worse than that, as the true main protagonist used a small piece of rubble to withstand a point-blank dragonfire attack a few episodes back. This after said dragon created said rubble with its fire breath about 20 minutes earlier.

    Exploring the depths of shit that this show has sunk to is far more entertaining than the show itself, so expect lots more talk on the subject for a while longer.
