    I understand why you don’t like GRRM now. I read the first 6 books of Wheel and had to quit because everything became so convoluted. I loved the first two books, but the next four felt like I was just reading to get through. No way I could get though all 14(?). To each his own.

    Do you disagree with me on how I rated GRRMs books? Outside of the GoT series have you read any GRRM that you consider good? In the GoT series, did you think Feast and Dance were good books, with the endless amount of trivial descriptions with very little plot advancement?

    The “trash” rating, yes I disagree. But overall, I agree. Feast was my least favorite. However, I enjoy descriptive writing and character development, so I look at 4&5 as more of a slow burn. I haven’t read any other GRRM books because the subject matter doesn’t seem very interesting to me.

    Chernobyl on HBO is really interesting.. I was barely born when that happened so it's cool to see the story told outside of a history book

    I have been watching it as well and it is unbelievable how badly they mismanaged the situation.

    Yeah, would have spread all the the heaviest populated part of the USSR and most of Northern Europe. Those guys who died are major heroes, like next level heroes.

    And how about that elephant foot. It is still generating heat over 30 years later lol

    The site is safe to tour now, as long as you do not go to the wrong place (need a guide) or stay too long.

    That would be something to see

    what is the "elephant foot" and why is that guy right next to it?

    and I think COD4 Ghillie mission is about as close as I'd want to get

    He is not actually next to it. He had to stand around the corner and use an angled mirror to get a picture of it. That is his reflection, not him next to it.

    The elephant's foot is a bunch of dense, molten, radioactive material that oozed out and fell to the basement, next to a post. making it look like an elephant foot.
