[play]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxI8aPISq8I[/play]

HBO simply released for Game of Thrones season six. However there's the ultimate tease. “They don't know what’s going to occur,” the voiceover says, a intelligent wink, nod,

 You (they) know nothing.

The teaser additionally doubles as a best hits assortment of Sport of Thrones‘ most memorable deaths and accidents. There’s Ned Stark, in fact, in addition to Jaime dropping his hand, the Pink Marriage ceremony, and Bran (he’s again!) going to city on some Wights. Plus, this Jon Snow fellow you might need examine.

As for the id of the trolling narrator: It sounds like the legendary Max Von Sydow, who was solid as Bran’s tree-dwelling tutor, the Three-Eyed Raven. He and Gwendoline Christie most likely swapped tales about engaged on Star Wars: The Pressure Awakens, whereas the remainder of the forged begged for spoilers. Emilia Clarke even supplied to provide away your entire plot of Terminator Genisys, however nobody was .

game of Thrones returns for season six in April 2016.

‘The Walking Dead’ May Have Cast A ‘Deadwood’ Actor As The Villainous Negan

(Some spoilers ahead for comic and TV fans)

This should be considered as just a rumor for now, but it’s a convincing one. Let’s just get what you came here for out of the way, and not bury the lede: Garret Dillahunt (Justified, Deadwood) may have been cast as the terrible, no-good, murderous Negan in AMC’s The Walking Dead. The general consensus is that Negan’s arrival is imminent, and it wouldn’t be shocking at all if the barbed wire bat-swinging baddie finally made his appearance this season during the finale.

Negan The Walking Dead

In Robert Kirkman’s comic book, he’s the man who ultimately kills (SPOILER) Glenn, crushing his skull with his weapon of choice: Lucille. Since Glenn may already be dead (but, then again, he may not), we might not see that scene in the TV series, which is a shame, because it would have intensified Negan’s threat. Maybe, he’ll just have to kill someone else. (I’m looking at you, Carl.)

So, why the belief that Dillahunt has been cast in the role? Well, there’s this tweet that went out earlier this week, for starters:

That’s the collection of The Walking Dead that introduces Negan — it’s not much to go on, but then, as The Spoiling Dead Fans pointed out, there’s the fact that TWD stars John Carroll Lynch (Eastman) and Alanna Masterson (Tara) began following Dillahunt on Twitter. Perhaps the most convincing Twitter evidence comes in the form of Scott M. Gimple — TWD showrunner — following Dillahunt, when he only follows a little over 300 people. If none of that has convinced you, then take a gander at the halo emoticon that the actor tweeted out after a coy response to whether Lucille has any significance to him:

Dillahunt plays up the comedy on Raising Hope, but on Deadwood and Justified, he showed the kind of villainous chops that would suit Negan just fine.

What do you think? Would he be a convincing Negan?

Lucasfilm is Pissed About These Amy Schumer Star Wars Photos

Lucasfilm is Pissed About These Amy Schumer Star Wars Photos

Thursday afternoon, GQ Magazine revealed photos from their latest issue featuring Trainwreckstar Amy Schumer in joking, sexual situations with Star Wars characters like C-3PO and R2-D2. Friday, Lucasfilm responded and not in kind.

In a post on Twitter by the official Star Wars account, they said the following: “Lucasfilm & Disney didn’t approve, participate in or condone the inappropriate use of our characters in this manner.” What “manner” do they mean? Well, the photo above, as well as these.

Obviously, GQ and Schumer didn’t mean to disrespect Lucasfilm with these photos. They’re just supposed to be funny, weird and provocative. Like Schumer and her comedy.

In fact, that they chose to use these characters at all is a testament to their cultural significance. It’s kind of a compliment. But Star Wars is owned by Disney.

Disney is a family company and they obviously wouldn’t be cool with anyone, even the biggest comedienne in the world, fellating a lightsaber. At least in public.

New Condom Will Change Colors If Someone Has An STI

The fact that someone has created a condom that can detect sexually transmitted infections (STIs) is amazing on its own, but the fact that it was invented by a team of 13- and 14-year-old students is even more impressive! Muaz Nawaz, Daanyaal Ali and Chirag Shah from the Isaac Newton Academy in London came up with the concept, calling it the ‘S.T.EYE.’

The condom glows faintly in different colors depending on what STIs it has encountered; green for chlamydia, yellow for herpes, purple for human papillomavirus, and blue for syphilis. They won the first prize (£1,000) for Health at TeenTech Awards, a competition that encourages 11-to-16-year-olds to create inventions that will help the world.

Wondered What Happened To The Dwarves After The Hobbit Ended

  You've Already Seen A Few Of Them In The Fellowship Of The Ring!

The Hobbit

Whether you’re in the group that loves or in the group that hates the Hobbitmovies, there’s no denying that these were pretty big films that made A LOT of money! Even though the movie was called The Hobbit, most of the attention was focused on the dwarves and their epic quest to retake the Lonely Mountain from the dragon, Smaug. We spent three movies watching these dwarves fight for what was rightfully theirs, so it’s hard not to get attached to some of them. But have you ever wondered what happened to the dwarves after all was said and done? Dwarves live for a while, so where were these characters during The Lord of the Rings trilogy? The answers for some of them might not be exactly what you wanted to hear! Let’s dig in!

The Fate Of The Dwarves

Oin

Forty-eight years after being settled in the Lonely Mountain, Oin made his way back to Moria to reclaim the realm for the Dwarves. It was five years later that the orcs attacked, and when he could not escape over the Bridge of Khazad-dûm, Oin tried to exit through the Hollin Gate. It was there he was killed by the Watcher in the Water, a creature that Frodo and the rest of the Fellowship would later encounter.
UNLEASH THE KRAKEN!
UNLEASH THE KRAKEN!
            

Gloin

Ah yes! Gimli’s father. His life was much longer and more peaceful than his brother’s. He remained at the kingdom under the mountain and was also sent at the Council of Elrond when the Fellowship was formed. He would later die naturally at the age of 253.

Dwalin

Dwalin was a smart one. He decided to stay at the Lonely Mountain where he lived out the rest of his life, dying at the ripe, old age of 340. He lived through the war of the ring, but it was never revealed if he or Gloin ever took part in it.

Balin

Good ol' Balin. In the Hobbitmovies he was always one of the most liked Dwarves. In fact, he ended up leading an expedition to Moria where he later became The Lord of Moria for some time – until the orcs attacked and he was killed by one of their archers. Remember that Tomb in Fellowship of the Ring? Yup. That was Balin’s tomb.
Poor, old Balin :(
Poor, old Balin 🙁

Bifur & Bofur

Bifur has an axe in his skull, I think he’s had to deal with enough stuff in his life to be bothered with anymore violence. He also stayed back in the Lonely Mountain and lived out his life. His age at death is unknown. Ditto for Bofur. He also lived out his life in the mountain. You know, for a place called the Lonely Mountain, it doesn’t seem quite so lonely there, does it?

Bombur

Bombur, like many of the others stay behind in the Lonely Mountain and enjoyed the rest of his life…a little too much. Bombur had grown SO FAT that it eventually took the strength of six dwarves to lift him to the dinner table.

Dori & Nori

Dori and Nori also stayed in the mountain where they grew their wealth and lived rich, and happy, for the rest of their lives.

Ori

Like Dori and Nori, Ori – the lovable idiot – also stayed in the mountain where he lived out his life peacefully with a wife and children. EXCEPT THAT DIDN’T HAPPEN! Ori actually joined the expedition to Moria and after burying Balin he was killed by the onslaught of orcs that attacked. Remember that morbid diary entry Gandalf read in the Fellowship of the ring? That was Ori’s diary.
And that’s Ori...
And that’s Ori...

BONUS ROUND

Bard Bowman

NOT Will Turner
NOT Will Turner
Bard rebuilt his ancestral town of Dale at the foot of the Lonely Mountain. He eventually became its king, establishing and maintaining good relations with the dwarves, where he lived peacefully and his son Bain succeeded him after his death.

Tauriel

I should save this for when I do my Hobbit 'Based On' video eventually, but I need to vent it here. Kili never fell in love with an Elf, much less meet Tauriel because she wasn’t even a character in the book. Peter Jackson created her just for the movie so he could force in an awful dwarf/elf forbidden relationship to emotionally manipulate the audience (it didn't work). Evangeline Lily was great in her role, but her character felt unnecessary and only weakened the story in my opinion. -- So there you have it, the fate of the dwarves! The adventures that happened inThe Hobbit definitely impacted what would eventually take place in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, mainly due to it being how Bilbo found the ring of power. While, at times, there were unnecessary moments in the films, there were also moments that captured the magic of Middle-Earth and made you want to be part of it!

will Russia sell its entire space program?

” …immediately after spacecraft separation, a series of telemetry problems were detected… “


maxresdefault


 In recent weeks some at the Russian Federal Space Agency – Roscosmos (re-branded in 1992)  have seriously started to doubt their ability to conduct even the simplest of tasks in the ever commercializing space

industry.  The agency’s loss of Progress 44 in 2011, and now the same for Progress 59 in April of 2015 to a similar incident, have been costly.

This is added to the fact that Roscosmos has also lost six Proton

rockets in the last three and a half years at $55.5 million a piece (not counting contents/cargo). These setbacks have pushed some Russian physicists, engineers, and even program managers to question the very existence of their jobs.  

progress-soyuz-russian-spacecraft-110824d-02


 “Almost immediately after spacecraft separation, a series of telemetry problems were detected with Progress 59,”

“After the rocket exploded all I could think was, not again.”

– Russian scientists told a NASA spokesman

   

 The Russian Federation’s Proton-M rocket is the primary competitor of SpaceX’s Falcon-9 rocket. Both of these delivery systems can transport approx. four and a half tons into geostationary orbits and have the ability to dock with the ISS. These

are huge loads for today’s standards. The problem the Proton-M has repeatedly faced is its ability to successfully escape the Earth’s gravitational pull. This is key for space operations and a problem Russian scientists have battled for decades.

“Everything appears to be working correctly and then, bam, – it is a fireball!” – Systems control specialist Dimitri Matviyenko told one reporter.

In 2001 Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX traveled to the Russian capital of Moscow to discuss purchasing a couple of ICMB’s –

Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (minus the ballistics hopefully). This is how SpaceX was really born. Before him there were others as well.


The general consensus of the International Space Community has been overwhelmingly similar.  When will Russia sell it’s space program? It wouldn’t be the first time the former communist

The totalitarian state sold its rockets to the highest bidders. It’s all simple economics. In the world of technology and transportation, it’s sink or swim. Russia had a good run and helped pave the

way as a pioneer in the industry of space exploration. Bankrupting yourself twice in half a century doesn’t seem like the best economical decision though.

In the words of Neil Young, “it’s better to burn out than to fade away,”.. and the Russian Space Program is certainly pulling this one off.
