  1. North is Forbidden

As Game of Throne shows, the North in the fictional world of the Seven Kingdoms is a harsh terrain full of the usual daily grind; snow, ice, the walking undead. Tough as old boots, some of our determined, straight-talking northern characters might not fare well, but there’s no refuting that the likes of Jon Snow, Ygritte, and the living Stark family members are some of the most likable. And you’d probably get a decently priced beer up that way too.

  1. Sometimes it’s best to leave well alone

“Take Winterfell”, they said, “It’ll be a cinch.” Oh, Theon. Readers of the George RR Martin novels shook their heads appallingly as Alfie Allen’s character, Theon Greyjoy, determinedly set out to “conquer the north” to gain some gratitude from his father, knowing just what lay in store for the poor chap. One failed uprising later; Greyjoy is enduring the screaming torture and butchery usually reserved for those alighting at Oxford Circus in rush hour. We won’t dwell over the disgusting particulars of his detainment at the rightly named Dread fort, but (spoiler alert) suffice to say Theon will not be joining the #cockinasock viral social media campaign any time soon.

Justin Bieber could do worse than note the warning tale of King Joffrey, Game of Throne’s masochistic arch-villain, who in spite of not being old enough for his first Gillette has developed quite the flair for torture, murder and starting wars. The little tyke.
