Warning: There are spoilers for those who haven't seen the series finale of "Game of Thrones."

After eight epic seasons, you would think HBO's tent pole fantasy phenomenon Game of Thrones would go out in a blaze of glory.

It did not.

Reactions to the final episode are very mixed.

Devoted fans felt swindled by what they thought was a rushed season while others were satisfied overall and bemoaned the ending of an era.


So how does one describe the epic plot of the series in one concise tweet? Is it even possible?

Social psychologist Amy Cuddy wanted to find out and posed the challenge on Sunday, just before the airing of the final showdown in Winterfell.

"Can someone please explain the plot/story of the entire #GOT series in a single tweet?"

The results are both hilarious and accurate.

Let's start with the ones that read like liner notes on the back of a GoT blu-ray boxed set.



These are fair and general descriptions.




Can we get more specific? The answer is a resounding "yes."





Here are honorable mentions for the most succinct summaries.





This sounds about right.


Wouldn't this be something? I'm on board for computers rendering mashup scripts.




There you have it.

With Game of Thrones finally over, the buzz about the poor finish is still ongoing on various social media platforms. The main consensus seems to side with the journey being better than the destination.

Was the adventure still worth following?

They say that some of the greatest comedy springs from the greatest tragedy.

And that sentiment is most certainly true when it comes to Stephen Colbert.

While many know the comedian as a smart, funny, and charismatic late night personality from critically acclaimed shows like The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, and The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, it may come as a surprise that Colbert has dealt with an incredible amount of loss in his life.

Let's be honest, divorce sucks pretty bad in the traditional sense. There's a lot of heartache and paperwork involved - and that's if it's an amicable divorce. If there's some animosity, the process can be straight up traumatizing - but it's 2018 and we're all about making the best out of the worst, so let's find those silver linings, shall we? Divorce isn't all bad. Turns out, it's gone some pretty sweet bonuses attached.

Full confession, my closest friends often tell me I'm the dumbest genius they know. I breezed through school, handle advanced concepts with ease - and I spent ten minutes looking for my phone in the dark by using the flashlight app on my phone. The saddest part is I didn't even realize how dumb I was being on my own.

I'm not a people person...

Some of us are gregarious, loud, thrill seeking (often obnoxious) introverts. We love everything and anything social. Are opposite friends are introverts. We look at them and can't help but feel... they just need a little friendly shove into the fun. Not so. Often they are perfectly content in their quiet company of one. Many do have a crippling social anxiety that can drive them to some interesting predicaments when they are thrust into a public situation.
