The wars that inspired Game of Thrones

From the video:

Beginning around 1377, medieval England was shaken by a power struggle between two noble families, which spanned generations and involved a massive cast of characters, complex motives and shifting loyalties. Sound familiar? Alex Gendler illustrates how the historical conflict known as the Wars of the Roses served as the basis for much of the drama in Game of Thrones.

Creative nut feeder makes Cybermen out of squirrels

Squirrels have now been upgraded to Cybermen, it’s a whole new challenging world for the Doctor now. The Cyberman head used to be a shower radio, but once that gave way, Doctor Who fan Emma Young very creatively converted it into a nut feeder. The mask is packed with nuts and hangs a small distance above the ground. Scavenging squirrels inevitably must stand to reach those nuts, and inadvertently become Cybermen. That’s so much more efficient than the usual tricks Cybermen employ. Watch a video of the mask in action.

Weeping Angel Mask

The weeping angels are the scariest of Doctor Who antagonists. There are Daleks and Cybermen, but they can hardly compare with the sheer terror of being taken out in the blink of an eye. I’d say Blink ranks pretty close to the best episodes of the new Doctor Who series. That, and The Empty Child. The mask is available on Amazon for $15.

“Don’t Blink
Blink and you’re dead.
Don’t turn your back.
Don’t look away.
And DON’T blink.”
