The internet is blowing up (eg, mashable, twitter, buzzfeed, and this blog) with the fact that the princess Myrcella Baratheon, has been replaced. It was Aimee Richardson now it is Nell Tiger Free.
Most people being replaced would be sad about it not Aimee, oh no, she took to vine and vined about it. “Well, this is embarrassing.”
If your not following Aimee you ought to. She is a master at her craft of being funny on twitter.

Cancel your tickets.
On Thursday, us health officials canceled all non-essential travel to Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. They advise against going do to the Ebola outbreak there. The outbreak in West Africa has killed more than 700 people since March.
The last time a warning like this one was issued was in 2003 because of SARS in Asia. Ebola is defined as: “noun
1. an infectious and generally fatal disease marked by fever and severe internal bleeding, spread through contact with infected body fluids by a filovirus were Ebola virus (, whose normal host species is unknown.” (google, 2014.)
I was on google and I came across this promotional video that I have never seen before.
The video has Bella Thorne learning to drive and Shaq (goldbond spokes person) telling her all about distracted driving.
It is a must watch if you have a teen who wants to drive, or let us be honest you should watch because you could be a distracted driver. Thank goodness I don’t drive.
This is a yummy gift to North Korea.
A group of South Korean activists and North Korean defectors filled 50 large helium balloons with Choco Pie.
These pies are so popular with people in the north that the country band them because they felt it was like capitalism.
They were distributed to the northerners in factories in the Kaesong Industrial Complex where both South and North Koreans work. The protesters will continue sending the pie to the north.
How popular are these snacks? When the factories closed a few years ago, the price for a single pie went up to $23.00 (a days wage in the north.) What is a Choco pie?
The Choco pie or Choco Pie is a snack cake consisting of two small round layers of cake with marshmallow filling with chocolate covering, similar to a pie. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Choco_pie

I must admit that I have just started reading the books and I find them delightful.
However, many people are annoyed that the book series and the tv show don’t follow the same path.
If you ask Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark in the franchise, what will happen in the show she will tell you that she has no idea. She also has a message to those who give spoilers away: don’t be a book snob.
She tells tvline (http://tvline.com/2014/07/29/game-of-thrones-season-5-arya-lady-
stoneheart/#) “I’m so sick of going on the internet and seeing all the book readers being snobby, spoiling it for other people, then saying, ‘Well, it’s not a spoiler. The books have been out for years.’
Like, couldn’t you just stop being mad for a second and let other people enjoy the show?
They feel they have a claim on the series because they read the books first, and I understand that, but they don’t need to be mean about it. I liked moments like this, because book readers think they know what’s coming, then we change it and it’s really funny to watch their reactions.
They’re always like, ‘That’s not what happened in the books, so the show’s really bad now.’ But really, they just feel insecure because they’re used to knowing what’s coming next.” oooooo burn! That burn is third degree!
Me and my readers love you Arya e.g, Maisie Williams. Information via tvline: http://www.tvline.com
