    Dell XPS13. It's widely regarded as one of the world's best notebooks. It's a total knockout.

    I'm not going to say I'm now a walking PUBG encyclopedia, but I have read every article on the first five pages of Google, plus every tips megathread on Reddit. Multiple times.

    Want to know how to rangefind with a 4x ACOG? I can help. No ACOG? I still gotchu, fam. Need to know where to drive, or what gun shoots the farthest? Yeah, I can help with that. Does a level 3 vest confer higher AC, or more HP?

    Find me on Discord. Let's talk PUBG. Then let's play PUBG until our wives are mad at us.

    There's nothing weird about three dudes in a small bathroom. Don't judge.

    The goal is the Iron Throne. Take the seat, rule the world. All characters contribute to this struggle in ways that may not be immediately evident. They all matter somehow, even if in a Butterfly Effect sort of way.

    Some have said GoT is the story of the Starks. Some might call it the story of the Targaryens. Others still might call it the story of Jon Snow. All of them are right. There is no clear protagonist because that's a matter of perspective, especially in the bloody game of thrones. That's real life: one man's conqueror is another man's hero. One man's savior is another man's villain. Even a beloved king is never without fear of the knife.

    GoT is a story of power. Power and the pursuit is not straightforward. Many of us find the moral ambiguity, the machinations and the complexity very appealing. We enjoy that this is not another cut-and-dry protagonist vs. antagonist story with a predictable trajectory that wraps up with a neat conclusion. But we DO know that every thread will collide in the end and that no detail is incidental.

    None of this can be understood by committing to a scattered handful of episodes. Limited knowledge begets limited conclusions.
