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.
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).
