I thought he said you get a snowball effect in that any small change from the books in earlier seasons would make a bigger difference in later seasons, so season 5 might be somewhat different from the books but I don't think we'll see a "split." Still I think knowing the books can count as a leak because they shouldn't be *too* different.

>The frame rates have increased a long with the resolution for a lot of 4k TV's. Nope. If anything 4K has set framerate (resfresh rate) back due to bandwidth constraints, you can get 120+ hertz with relatively old 1080p sets but even the most bleeding edge sets can only do 60 at 4K.

Seriously do you know how expensive crap fast food is? I'll buy that poor people need to work more and don't have time to prepare food so they eat crap, but anyone that says good food is unaffordable compared to fast food is just plain wrong. I was at McDonald's and got food for 3 people one of which was a kid and the total was about 19 dollars. "The price of a pound of ground beef has hit $3.55 a pound, a record high even when adjusted for inflation, according to government readings for February. That's up 56% since 2010. The average for round steak is at $5.28, among the highest prices seen in the last 20 years" $3.55 + $4 for a big bag of chips + $2 for a 2 liter of pop = about $10 bucks for a hell of a lot more meat, more pop, and more sides (chips vs fries).
