Jorah has been spotted filming in the pits, so I am assuming Jorah and Tyrion have found employment/been sold to Loraq at this point. I think Jorah is going to be a pit fighter and Tyrion some kind of aid to Loraq. Jorah wins in the pits and Loraq is going to release the lions on him, but Dany stops him via advice from Tyrion.
I'm confused. So if everyone has the virus, why would eating Bob (if bitten) turn them? I thought you had to die for the virus to activate? Maybe I'm starting to confuse zombie lore here
Furthermore, I have done a full 180 on Bob and this show. Love love love this season so far
It was a subject approached in the comics, kinda. Some of the hunters just assumed they would turn, or get infected, or whatever because they had eaten the flesh of someone who had been bitten. That's why they freaked out a little. At that point in the comics, I am not sure if everyone (meaning everyone outside of Rick's group) realized that everyone is already infected anyway. Heck, there are probably still survivors out there in the comics that still don't know it.
They (the hunters) weren't around long enoug to find out... heh...
Also, remember in season 1 that Jim got bit and lived for several days with the fever and infection symptoms before they left him beside the road to turn on his own. It just moves faster in different people, especially if the bite wound you get isn't an immediately mortal wound. My understanding is that a bite alone is very deadly and will kill you eventually, it just works faster if it is a particularly nasty bite.
Enlighten me on this a bit... I haven't read the comics...
If you want to know the spoiler deets, here you go...
Basically, Dale (the RV guy with Andrea and her sister in the show) was the guy in the comics that is going through what Bob is going through on the show. He gets kidnapped by the Hunters (Terminus folk from TV) and taken away like Bob did. He wakes up missing a leg, and starts laughing hilariously after the leader of the Hunters (Chris in the books, Gareth on the show) gives him a similar speech that he gave him at the end of last night's show. When asked why he is laughing, Dale starts shouting "TAINTED MEAT!!!" over and over and laughing because, unbeknownst to all (even most of Rick's group) Dale was bitten. The Hunters, some of them, start freaking out and wanting to cut out their own tongues thinking they've been infected when they find out. Others tell them to chill out because the meat was probably okay because it was cooked, etc. The Hunters then decide to take Dale back and lay him in the yard in front of the church to use him as bait to lure out other victims. Some of Rick's group sees him out there, and wants to run out to get him. Rick realizes that Dale's being used as bait and makes everyone wait a sec and regroup. He starts laying cover fire into the woods and the Hunters start firing back (IIRC, Glenn even gets a bullet through the leg that isn't a mortal wound or anything.) They pull Dale back into the church and the Hunters retreat. Dale gives his story and describes where he was at. Father Gabriel recognizes the area by the description, and Rick takes a small group back to the Hunters' camp, where they brutally murder and mutilate everyone they find.
I figure that might be a good general synopsis of the next episode, minus the Daryl/Carol arc.
FWIW, and sorry to keep discussing the buying aspect, but you can piss away a lot of money by buying all the time too. I know from experience. We've bought and sold cars outright for like the past 5 years.
Depreciation is a bitch, and at least with leasing you're not going to have to worry about resale value because you aren't the end user for that part of a car's life. We learned the hard way that you have to get a lot of use out of a car if you buy it outright.
You're talking about a voucher...not the curriculum. Curriculum and testing still has to meet state education guidelines. I think that's pretty clear right now except to religious bigots that use this as a way of mocking believers or the racists they believe to be behind every door.
I read the article... granted that's the only thing I've seen about this guy.
I don't really disagree with his stances... he seems to be mostly anti-war, which is fine...
My main issue in the past for voting third party is taking a vote away from someone who, although not ideal, is not as bad as the other candidate. In this particular race, both Hagan and Tillis are nothing but party shills who I want nothing to do with, so I guess it doesn't matter.
To me, that is another reason why it is important to vote for this guy.
If we all keep with the mentality that either of them (Hagan or Tillis) is going to win anyway, then you're not voting for what you want to begin with. That is a failed democracy.
If third party candidates can legitimately get a chunk of the vote, it will either increase their popularity and shed more light on them or, at the very least, make the other two parties realize that the people aren't happy with either of them.
I've found it kind of hard not to agree with a lot Haugh has to say and believes in. He'll definitely get my vote, and I won't relegate it to as simple of a statment as "because I don't like either of the other choices."
That's a big part of it, but everything I've seen out of Haugh makes me want to see more people like him in the political spectrum.
I'm a registered independent that usually votes mostly democrat or third party, but he has definitely earned my vote the old fashioned "represent the people" way.
It isn't exotic or anything, but my suggestion would be:
Somewhere with a historical context as being "frontier" in the western US.
You could draw on the historical aspects of expansion and the displacement and oppression of indigenous peoples. Not only that, but you could draw parallels and differences between frontier living and the lifestyle that technology has afforded us today. You could then compare your lifestyle as a European American in typical American society to that of Native Americans' lives on reservations.
Again, it isn't the most exotic, but I think it would be really interesting. You could really rough it for the full experience on most of the trip, and you'd probably save a lot of money too.
