Aliens Might Be Real And It Seems Like People Are Too Busy To Care

Over the weekend, The New York Times released an exhaustive report on a secret and not fully declassified government program that studied U.F.O sightings within the Department of Defense that seems to indicate there have been documented alien visits to our planet. 

The reports says there have been many sighting of aircraft, as well as recovered materials that include alloys that don’t exist on earth and which had “strange effects” on the people who handled them. Whatever.

Perhaps this would be big news literally any other year, but with the pressing and overwhelming issues in politics, culture, and abroad, the most anyone seems to be mustering for aliens being real is a “meh.” Folks are responding with less fervor than they do to a Trump tweet, perhaps because a tweet from Trump is more likely to start a nuclear war. If aliens have been visiting, that’s fine. But did they vote third party?!

Until a space ship literally lands on the White House and crushes the entire Trump administration, I don’t think anyone will really get as excited about this as they should be. We want to see them, if you know what I mean.

'Game Of Thrones' Might Have Revealed The Cure For Greyscale Last Night

(Spoilers ahead, obviously!)

If you watched the season premiere of Game of Thrones last night, you know that Sam Tarly is currently studying to be a maester, though most of his duties involve taking care of people with greyscale and cleaning up feces.

You also would have noticed that Jorah Mormont is one of Sam’s patients.

But possibly what you didn’t notice is that Sam might have totally found a way to cure Jorah’s greyscale in one of the books he was reading about dragonglass. 

REALLY. Reddit user Beastmodekait took a screenshot of one of Sam’s books at just the right moment to capture half a page about the medicinal uses of dragonglass.

Obviously, the screenshot doesn’t reveal the entire passage, but it does appear that the page talks about ingesting (presumably ground) dragonglass as cures for diseases. The author apparently dismisses this claim, saying that it could hurt “gullible” people by having them waste time and money eating dragonglass instead of  using “practical treatments.”

As Beastmodekait pointed out, Shireen’s greyscale was restricted just to her face (though not cured entirely), and she grew up in Dragonstone—which we now know has large stores of dragonglass with which she could have come into contact. It fits! And it also happens to be a great excuse to get Jon and Dany to finally have a Targaryen family reunion.
