Joe Hanson Creates ‘The Science of Game of Thrones’ Video

Have you ever pondered about the complexities in the world that George R.R. Martin created in the Song of Ice & Fire series? Joe Hanson, the founder and curator of the “It’s Okay To Be Smart” YouTube channel, has decided to try and provide some clarity with a video called “The Science of Game of Thrones.”

In the video embedded above, Hanson tackles two questions: “Why are the seasons so crazy?” and “What are the secrets behind Valyrian steel?” He also talks about The Wall, wildfire, milk of the poppy, and dire wolves. Fair warning, viewers may encounter spoilers so proceed with caution. (via The Huffington Post)
