It's Shakespeare's (possible, but conjecturally extrapolated) birthday! Let's take a moment to celebrate the works of one of the world's greatest and most sensationalist storytellers.
Part of the reason I enjoy Game of Thrones so much is that so much of its plot resembles a Shakespearean history play... but on steroids, with more magic and less complicated family trees. If you think Shakespeare is boring, just think of it as Game of Thrones: Elizabethan-Style. It's just as entertaining.
Happy Birthday, Shakespeare!
