In a poison pen contest, George R.R. Martin has a pretty worthy adversary in Taylor Swift, but she's no match for the Game of Thrones author, whose kill count has now exceeded 5,000.

[YOUTUBE "snm6qnezv0Q"] Did you know that HBO's Game of Thrones is based on a literary saga?
Kidding, kidding. But seriously, in his GoT DVD audio commentaries, author George R.R. Martin has a tendency to point out how a certain plot point went down "in the books."
One enterprising fan put together a supercut of every time Martin refers to "the books" during his commentaries. From season 1 to season 4, no "book" was left unturned.

[YOUTUBE "y6B2ssor0wQ"] Game of Thrones may be serious, but its actors are decidedly not.
We dare you not to laugh along with the stars of the HBO series in this newly released blooper reel, which highlights season 4's biggest flubs – and falls. Because, when it comes to Westeros, stairs are apparently more dangerous than any dragon ever will be.
Among the highlights? Gwendoline Christie's laugh, Ser Pounce's on-set antics (one word: diva!) and that time Pedro Pascal almost took his own head off before the Mountain (Hafthór Júlíus Björnsson) crushed it for him.

If only each episode of Game of Thrones were longer than an hour.

Because completing one game of Monopoly will take roughly as long as reading one of the Game of Thrones books, this seems like a logical pairing.
The game's locations have been updated with examples from the monolithic fantasy franchise, such as King's Landing, Winterfell and Castle Black. Meanwhile, players can choose from a white walker, direwolf, three-eyed raven, dragon egg, crown and, of course, the Iron Throne to use as pieces. Green houses have become villages and red hotels are now keeps.

[YOUTUBE "JpUrXJNcS_8"] If you were in disbelief watching Gregor Clegane (a.k.a. The Mountain) crush a human skull in season 4 of Game of Thrones, we have now learned that the actor, Hafthór Júlíus Björnsson, could probably do the same in real life.
Icelandic-born Björnsson, 26, just broke a 1,000-year-old viking record.
A strongman competitor as well as an actor, Björnsson carried a 1,433-lb. log on his back for five steps. Check it out in the video above – it's truly something to behold.
