Bethesda turned down Game of Thrones because they wanted to make Skyrim instead.
Now I know there's a reason you shouldn't blame others when you do something wrong, and that reason is: you might get caught and have to apologize to a bunch of dumb peasants.

"Brunette" can refer to a person with brown or black hair. I thought it was just brown hair.

On a ceremonial cruise aboard the USS Princeton hosting president John Tyler and much of his cabinet, a gun malfunctioned and exploded, killing six people, including Representative David Gardiner of New York. Gardiner's daughter Julia fainted into President Tyler's arms. Tyler later married her.
