Game of Thrones: Why I planned to read the books

Few days back one of my friend came over. We were talking about GoT TV series and what might happen to the characters in the seasons to come. Suddenly he dropped a big spoiler on me from the books. I knew I he was not a book reader. How do you know that?, I asked. I was going through a bunch a online articles, he said, and I just couldn’t resist. I had to read it. (Which spoiler? “Lady Stoneheart” don’t even Google it)

For the internet is dark and full of spoilers

Honest Trailers – Game of Thrones, at the end of the video it says, “And to my fellow book bros R+L=J right lol if you know what I mean.” Famous theory, heard the names few times before. It didn’t take me long to crack this one.

These are innocent spoilers where you also get part of the blame. Cause no one made you go through online articles to know what R did to L to cause J.

You haven’t the books? People at 9gag.com doesn’t care. This user here tells everyone what happens at the end of season 4.

Cliffhangers

I will have to wait a year more to know what happens after last episode. A year!! Since I can’t control myself from reading online articles that contains vague spoilers from the books. Reading the books are the way to go.

The average ASOIAF book is 1000 pages long. Never been a bookworm. Don’t think it will work for me but will give it a try.

Wish me luck 😛

MCC vs ROW

With the Football World Cup going on. I don’t thing many will bother about this match. But for a die hard cricket fan watching cricket legends play again, means a lot. Read this to know more about the Marylebone Cricket Club vs Rest of the World XI match.

As a Bangladeshi, I’m really concerned about Tamim’s form. I’m pasting Mohammad Isam’s words. He is EspnCricinfo’s Bangladesh correspondent. He wrote this on article on June 12th.

The Bangladesh opener has now played 13 innings in 2014, averaging 12.53 and has not made more than 31 in any of them.His last fifty came in the second ODI against New Zealand last October. He was just as poor in the World T20 at home, scoring just 83 runs from seven innings; a fruitless run which eventually led to his place in the line-up being questioned at least once.

Five years ago when he went through 25 innings without scoring a fifty, there were very few people who doubted Tamim’s ability. A comeback was not anticipated as he kept giving good starts with the bat, enough to keep everyone satisfied.  – source

It was written prior to the India series, and unfortunately he couldn’t make a come back in that series either.

Who will you be supporting? I’m not sure yet, both team has my favorite players. I think I will just sit there and enjoy the action 😛

Wrong Turns

Just started my high school. It was in 2006. My mother was worried about my results so she found me a tutor. He was to teach me Math and Science. My new tutors place wasn’t that far from where we lived.

First day mother came with me to the tutors place. I didn’t know, by then, that she was not going to come with me the next day. Long story short, the following day I got lost on my way to the tutor’s place.

The neighborhood was different than ours. There were all types of houses there, from tin-shed to high rising buildings. The way the house number, road number and blocked numbers were sorted, freaked me out. It wasn’t straightforward. For example you are in Block C road number 5 then you take you a few turns here are there and you are suddenly in Block B road number 4.

I strolled through the neighborhood for half an hour. I had mixed feelings. Scared, frustrated, was a bit excited about not having to attend that days class, fear of being too late in the very second day, if I suddenly find the place.

Then I saw a guy I meet the other day at the tutor place, walking there. It was such a relief.
