The Night’s Watch Cloaks On Game Of Thrones Are Rugs From IKEA
Any individual who’s purchased anything from IKEA knows it’s best to unload stuff with a few Allen torques and a solid drink primed and ready. Since no one’s at any point recommended that the affix’s guidelines are anything but difficult to take after, the outfit planners for Game Of Thrones chose to disregard them totally and denounce any kind of authority with some shearling carpets, transforming them into shrouds for the siblings of the Night’s Watch. The truth is out, Jon Snow’s been circling with an IKEA floor covering around his shoulders like some extravagant Swedish beggar.
“The tangle that watches the floors of men …”
Amid a discussion in 2016, GOT outfit architect Michele Clapton copped to purchasing the shrouds at IKEA and stated, “We cut and we shaved them, and afterward we included solid calfskin lashes and after that [distressed them] … I need the crowd to nearly notice the ensembles.” The floor coverings were additionally “waxed and iced” to give them that wet, snowed-on, I-see-undead-individuals look.
After finding out about this, IKEA grabbed the minute and not just posted photographs of their representatives wearing the floor coverings as capes, yet additionally shared guidelines on the best way to make your own.
You may skirt the “confer inbreeding” step on the off chance that you wish.
The people at People.com verified whether you can even now get a genuine Night’s Watch hide for yourself, and you’re in good fortune! IKEA’s “TEJN” floor covering is accessible at the dealer cost of $14.99, while the somewhat bigger “RENS” mat is $29.99. Presently, the carpets just come in white, so in case you’re intending to utilize one for an outfit or something, be set up to rub it in some soil, spill stuff on it, let your pooch crap on it, and toss some color at it before it’s even near being the correct shading. On the off chance that that appears like excessively work, an unattended little child can presumably make them look right in a couple of hours.
With the Star Trek universe being loaded with substances like dilithium precious stones and tritanium composites, it’s legitimate to accept they aren’t, in any case, making dress from a cotton/poly mix. Ecological suits, for instance, are likely created from some ultra-germ-separating super material that shields the wearer from everything and covers a shrouded Cheeto distributor.
While we can just envision what science fiction substance the suits should be made of, actually something of a buzzkill. The outfit creators for the first Star Trek arrangement were somewhere close to sharp tightwads and ingenious driving forces. You know those exemplary orange EV suits our legends would at times use to investigate bizarre outsider planets? No doubt, they were repurposed sh
Funny Weirdo Haircuts Drive Us Nuts!
The problem with young people today is that they have crazy haircuts.
In my day, a lad had two choices for a haircut – a crew cut or a flat top and both cost 50 cents. You went to the barber every Saturday morning with your old dad, had your ears raised and were grateful to look like every other kid on your block.
But these young people today. They all want to “express themselves” with their weirdo hairdos!
They walk around with their spiky bangs, corn rows, streaky uplifts, mohawks, faux hawks and wigged out sideburns. It’s a carnival freak show but without the popcorn.
If I had ever come home with a multi-colored mullet and a bum fluff goatee my old dad would have used me as a stump and split a cord of wood on my back.
It’s showy and disrespectful. Plumped and preening like a bunch of randy roosters let loose in a hen house. Disgraceful. I say they should round those damned young people up and sheer them down like the sheep they’re supposed to be.
It’s dangerous I tell you and it leads to anarchy and loose morals. It won’t be long before willy nilly hair styles aren’t enough for them anymore and they start frothing at the mouth, burning down post offices, practicing communism and forcing seniors to sport dreadlocks, rattails, moptops and worse.
And mark my god damned words, when that day comes we are all going to be well and truly sorry.
They have crazy haircuts. That’s the problem with young people today.
Oh God! Young People Need to Toughen the Hell Up
The problem with young people today is that they’re too damned soft.
In my day, young people were tough, damn it. We were gristly, sinewy and hard as nails. My generation was forged in a furnace of fiery parents, sweltering outhouses, creamed chip beef and the type of childhood diseases that either killed you or put some damned hair on your chest.
We had to be hard – conditions demanded it. There was no room for mollycoddling and teenaged slackassery. We couldn’t lie around in our underpants all day levelling up in Donkey Kong and text messaging our idiot friends. We were too busy rendering sheep fat, toting ice blocks and extracting our own teeth for that kind of foolishness. Our “down time” was getting dressed up in flour sack suits and attending the funerals of siblings who had died of dust pneumonia.
But these young people today? They’re marshmallows. And the similarity extends beyond their squishy plumpness and incredible lack of taste. Most have never done a lick of honest work and wouldn’t recognized a calloused palm if you clapped them across the ear with one.
They don’t understand what it means to sacrifice or to go without. For them, sacrifice is eating an unfrosted pop tart, fornicating with an unflavored condom or settling for less than an unlimited phone plan. Take away their cushy duvets, parental fawning and Junior Shopper credit cards and they wouldn’t last 5 damned minutes in the cold hard world.
And they’re emotionally soft too. Call a young person a worthless ninnyhammer and he’ll whinge, cry and fold up like a house of cards just to prove you right. Criticism’s considered some form of abuse instead of what it’s supposed to be – a practical assessment of your obvious limitations and some damned motivation to prove me wrong.
Face facts, this country is deep in the toilet and one flush away from becoming “Runningdoghai” the 23rd Province of the People’s Republic of China. If we ever want to return our nation to its former glory we need to stop raising a generation of spongy cry-babies and get back to work on hardening our resolve, our bodies and our minds.
They’re too damned soft. That’s the problem with young people today.
Sensible Careers – A Joke!
It’s high time we brought back good old fashioned jobs like costermongers, spittleman, wheeltappers, pettifoggers, pig jobbers, quarrel pickers and knock knobblers.
American Barbershop Idol
Surely to God we’ve exhausted this nation’s supply of caterwauling nancy boys and are ready to bring some damned decent singing back to the national stage. Four part harmonies plus straw boaters equals toe-tapping, good clean family fun.
And I don’t mean swearing. I mean putting pen to paper. They may be able to text 80 words a minute but ask them write a sentence longhand and it comes out looking like something a chimp would produce with a pointed stick and mitt full of mashed blackberries.
The Power of Positive Gumption
All this new age, positive-thinking hokum smacks me as being the worst kind of bumph since Clark Stanley sold his first bottle of snake oil elixir back in 1893.
Positive thinking as a means to an end is like the American Dream – it’s fine in theory but really only helpful to those with good genes, rich families and access to a decent education. For everyone else – it’s sleight of hand and empty platitudes.
For 2012, instead of folks assuming they can set their life right with little more than a combination of visualizations, affirmations and positive mental brainwaves, I’d like to see people attempting to set reasonable goals and then achieving them through a combination of hard work, determination and the power of positive gumption.
Enjoy your New Year’s Eve but keep the damned noise down. I’ll be in bed by 9:30.
