Game of Thrones

Why won't I be watching any more of game of thrones.  I'm glad to say I didn't pay to watch.  I don't have HBO so my money in no way supported this show and Im glad to have not supported it.  I haven't read the books.  So it's not that I compairing the books to the series.  Its not all the nudity or the language.  It's not the confusing nature of the show.  It all came down to the last 3 minutes of the show.  The rape of a 14 year old girl and the murder of a 10 year old boy.
Some one might say the story requires the two acts.  But I don't like programs where children are hurt.  I have stoped watching programs in the past because of children being hurt. 
Most recently I stopped watching Sons of Anarchy after Jax's son was kidnapped.  But there are other times I've stopped watching show, walked out of movies, and quit reading books because they have decided the only way to get ratings is to hurt children.

I can't prove that videos and movies of children getting hurt have increased the number of children getting hurt, but I have decided that I don't want to watch it.  So that is the end of Me watching Game of Thrones.

Its AV club all over again.

I'm really not sure what to think. I said I would be the president of the Home and school (read pta) at nick's school if they couldn't find anyone one else. No one else offered to do it. So I'm president of the H&S next year. So should I be proud that i'm president or should I just think that this is a continuation of when I was in school and I got picked last for everything.
Foot ball- last
Basket ball- last
the school play- Last
The pie eating contest -First

I got a lot of congratulations today and it felt kind of hollow.  I mean it's not like I ran against someone and won.  I was the only person willing to do it.  And I chose to do it only to keep the program from being closed.   I hadn't wanted to be the guy in charge, I really prefer to be the guy helping the guy in charge. 

Well I took the job of AV in highschool and made a real job of it.  I'll do the same thing again with this.  To quote the Joker  "Wait til they get a load of me."
