    I still make frequent use of CD-RWs and DVD-Rs for data storage and music mixes.

    Each year, hundreds of baby hummingbirds are killed by tree trimmers but there are hummingbird rescuers in several cities who will nurse them back to health if you deliver them in time. Also, hummingbirds don't eat ants; they'll die because they can't digest the exoskeleton of some insects.

    Your Online Manic Pixie Dream Girl

    What is a manic pixie dream girl?

    It refers to "that bubbly, shallow cinematic creature that exists solely in the fevered imaginations of sensitive writer-directors to teach broodingly soulful young men to embrace life and its infinite mysteries and adventures." A pretty, outgoing, whacky romantic lead whose sole purpose is to help broody male characters lighten up and enjoy their lives.

    If you find a bird's nest that's infested with mites, you can kill the bugs by dusting the birds and the nest with diatomateous earth; it's some sort of swimming pool product.

    He was a TV writer for many years. He wrote GoT intentionally as unfilmable because he was fed up with Hollywood after some failed pilots....
