whenever I see these things on the show i think okay robb is in a tent somewhere in the middle of the riverlands why do you have these? did you just have them at winterfell pre-made for the off chance that a huge war started and you’d need them to strategize? if not: you’re in the middle of the war, who has time to make these fancy little perfectly carved house pieces just for your big map?
Maybe every holdfast has, like, a “war kit” that gets brought out when necessary
They could maybe use them as teaching aids for battles and things, to show how different units moved around the battle field and what house they were under?
Everyone has like, logical explanations for these. All I can think about that these are all the pieces from Robb’s ‘RISK’ game that he snagged before he left Winterfell.
“Every year there are more than 400,000 American children who are torn away from their friends, schools and homes to pick the food we all eat. Zulema, Perla and Victor labor as migrant farm workers, sacrificing their own childhoods to help their families survive. The Harvest / La Cosecha profiles these three as they journey from the scorching heat of Texas’ onion fields to the winter snows of the Michigan apple orchards and back south to the humidity of Florida’s tomato fields to follow the harvest and provides an intimate glimpse into the lives of these children who struggle to dream while working 12 – 14 hours a day, 7 days a week to feed America.”
just goes to show you that not consuming animals does not mean you are supporting a system that is cruelty free
Bombardier beetles are ground beetles most notable for the defense mechanism that gives them their name: when disturbed, they eject a hot noxious chemical spray from the tip of their abdomen, with a popping sound. The spray is produced by a reaction between two chemical compounds, hydroquinone and hydrogen peroxide, stored in separate reservoirs in the beetle’s abdomen and mixed when needed in a third chamber with water and catalytic enzymes. Heat from the reaction brings the mixture to near the boiling point of water and produces gas that drives the ejection. The damage caused can be fatal to attacking insects and small creatures and is painful to human skin.
