    It's not actually a billion, it's just a lot. I'm not really good with numbers over a thousand. Or letters past N. That tail end of the alphabet can be tricky. Any letters hanging around Q, V and Z aren't to be trusted in my book. Keep going for the video, but skip to 1:20... / Continue →

    This is a video of Spanish cello club Cellocyl performing the Game of Thrones theme. It's very beautiful. The Game of Thrones theme really moves me. Usually to run outside and start swinging a stick around and challenging neighbors to duels. UNFAIR FACT: Some neighbors will... / Continue →
