    I assume you are aware that they didn't actually castrate the actors so they could perform these roles, right? You are just going to have to live with that reality.

    Does rosebud have some significance in Citizen Kane? I've never seen it before.

    It's a simple matter to change the frequency of the voice. Again, I think it's just ignorance on the part of the author. He got Varys right, but the unsullied are completely wrong.

    Another interesting fact. Castrated males don't get male pattern baldness. They can't grow back lost hair, but they don't loose any more if they are done up before acquiring that trait.

    I've never seen the movie, but I read a plot summary and it sounds like trying to track down rosebud is the entire premise of the movie. Knowing it would probably ruin it quite a bit.

    Yes, it's interesting. It didn't answer a question of mine.

    Why does the animation show "Dorne" instead of "Sunspear"?

    Dorne is the region, Sunspear is the capital. All other locations are identified with the name of the city. Dorne is the only one identified by the name of the region.

    If I had to guess, it's because they refer to the city as Dorne...Heck, I don't even recall hearing the name Sunspear, but I certainly heard of Dorn.

    If you go to Egypt, no Egyptian calls Cairo "Cairo", they call the city Egypt! so it's not without precendent in my world.

    I'm not sure if the name came up last season with Oberyn or not. I definitely knew the name, but I might just have picked it up form looking at the map. But this season it definitely came up in episode 1, when Loras and his lover were talking about the birthmark that was shaped like Dorne.

    Edit: just did a closed caption search of the whole series

    S4 E1 - When oberyn first arrives: "The prince's health forces him to remain at Sunspear."
    S4 E5 - Whey oberyn is talking to cercei about getting that ship to myrcella: "I will have it sailed down to Sunspear for her."

    They aren't in Sunspear, they're in Water Garden.

    And yet there are dragons and white walkers and blackish ghosty things. So, science and biology must be the same, right?

    Hey. Yo. If we can't discuss the lack of reality in fantasy and comic books then what?

    This is in the category of "Get over it". The cost to deal with whatever effects you (and only you) care about are costs the show doesn't need to bear. I'd rather they spent that money on dragons than worrying about the vocal tones of the Unsullied.

    I'm curious, though, how did you become the worlds foremost expert on this practice?

    Not an expert. I know how to google, don't you? I can't be an expert on everything like you, I have to look things up.

    I agree. Heck the show is obviously very cost conscious. Sometimes they'll have entire scenes where they didn't even bother to buy clothes for half the cast! :eek:

    Wait now that I think about it, maybe they should spend more money on Unsullied voices if they'd have to cut the costume money even more...

    I'd been wondering how you find episode references so fast.
