When it was first televised in 2011, no-one knew that it was going to be a global hit and what a show it is. The plot lines are thick with intrigue and the line between the goodies and the baddies becomes ever more blurred as time goes by.
Here at Epic, we have watched every single episode and laughed, cheered and (in the case of Julie) cried at the trials and tribulations of all involved.
From the Lannister gentry at Kingslanding to the rather more hardcore Starks of Winterfell and the hard life of Daenerys Targaryen thrown to Khal Drogo who was lets face it a single step away from Neanderthal man, you cannot fail to be caught up in the day to day lives of these characters. I for one was absolutely gutted when Sean Bean (Eddard Stark) was killed off but the gauntlet has definitely been taken up by his children.
My favourite character is Tyrrean Lannister (played by the incomparable Peter Dinklage) who is nothing short of spectacular with his acerbic wit and more recently his softer more approachable side, particularly when it comes to dealing with Sansa Stark who is at the moment being passed round like a cheese board for everyone to have a nibble at.
We have seen dragons born and take their first kill, heads, legs and hands lopped off and more naked flesh than a Saturday night in Barnsley but none of this takes away from the fascination and sheer brilliance of Game of Thrones.
We have just passed the halfway point for this season and are already starting to look for when the fourth season will get under way.
Whilst we acknowledge that this is not a programme for everyone, it is fascinating and very different to the ‘cops and robbers’ or ‘sci-fi terra forming’ genre of most productions at the moment.
We have created our own ‘Iron Throne’ made up of our own epic fireworks – let us know what you think
Now, many people have any number of recommended uses for rockets nowadays including celebrations, bird-scaring and occasionally for sending loved ones ashes into the sky but this is a new one on us.
In over 20 years we have never seen anyone use a rocket to remove a TOOTH!!!!
Some of you may be aware that the MD’s daughter is a dentist and she is staggered by this video clip.
The rockets is a US Army patriot M-106 model rocket kit which is available online from $14.99 (£9.60) so from a cost point of view – a great idea but come on …. Only in the USA.
The little boy was very brave and found his tooth for popping under his pillow for the tooth fairy visit later.
If you have heard of any other strange uses for fireworks or rockets, please let us know and we will give them a mention on the biggest and best fireworks blog in the world.
Did you know that some of the ingredients we find in common place foods are often there for different reasons that we just don’t think about.
Most of these are not additives we would associate with the food industry, delve a little deeper and a whole new world of chemical reactions on a microscopic level are happening right in your mouth.
Take for example the new black currant fisherman’s friend lozenges. One of the ingredients is Sorbitol, a natural sweetener also found in apples, peaches and prunes.
It is also widely used in mouthwash, hair gel, toothpaste and all sugar free chewing gums, but sorbitol is also commonly mixed with potassium nitrate, to make a solid rocket fuel, the sorbitol providing much of the hydrogen needed to make the exothermic chemical reaction, the formula being 19 C6H14O6 → 13 C6H14 + 36 CO2 + 42 H2O.
So the next time you brush your teeth, gel your hair or suck a fisherman’s friend, (careful now….) just think of the wonders of chemistry and your Bonfire night entertainment.
