OMG.


There's a pivotal scene from "Winterfell," the first episode from the final season of HBO's Game of Thrones, when Jon Snow (played by actor Kit Harington) rides a dragon for the first time.

It's a thrilling scene, and one of the highlights from an already exciting episode that sets up much of what's to come during what's sure to be the most talked about television events of 2019.


But Harington had an unpleasant time filming that scene, which was achieved by filming the actors atop a giant mechanical bull–type machine in front of a green screen.

Harington recalled that his right testicle became trapped as he was bucked around on the machine––and it all happened so quickly that he didn't have time to tell the crew that he wanted to stop.

He recalled thinking:

"This is how it ends, on this buck, swinging me around. Literally."

Harington's fans feel for him, because OUCH, but they were also good humored about the whole thing.

Indeed he did.

Ha!

Can you imagine?!

It's a big "NOPE" from us.

Very likely.

Harington was a good sport about the whole thing and even cracked a smile by the end of the segment. The camera crew had a good laugh, too, but we're sorry guys... that sounds like straight up nightmare fuel for the nether region.

Manipulation is designed to be stealthy. We hardly recognize it when it's happening to us because our abuser has forced it to appear under wraps.

But when we recognize it for what it really is, we really feel like we've been smacked across the face. There is no other descriptor for it. Usually we've trusted and loved those that manipulated us.

Just as new mothers encounter the sudden, influential developments of powerful hormone changes, protective instincts, and milk production, so new fathers undergo some key changes of their own.

Their socks become exclusively white, climbing higher up the calf than ever before. All their shorts sprout cargo pockets and clunky belt loop cell phone holders. They start to really lean in to their old records.

Cleaning up is hard enough when it's just clearing a month of dust bunnies. Can you imagine cleaning the debris left by murder, suicide and violence? I have a really great friend who used to do crime scene clean-up for a living. The pay is incredible; it starts at $55 an hour. But there is a much higher cost in mental well being. Death affects you in ways you don't always feel immediately. My friend has stories of nightmares, depression and pain after leaving scenes of horror. Why make all that money just to spend it on therapy? It takes a certain type of person.

***TRIGGER WARNING. CONTENTS ARE SENSITIVE ***

Redditor u/MemegodDave wanted to hear from the people who have the stomach to come in after crime and tragedy

to try to bring back some form of normalcy to the location by asking... People who make their living out of cleaning murder scenes, accidents and the like, what is the worst thing you have experienced in your career?

We all know the telltale signs that something is making us uncomfortable. Suddenly, we begin shaking, either in our hands or knees or toes. Then, usually, sweat starts pouring out of every part of our body, making it look like we just ran through a rainstorm underneath a waterfall. Finally, we lose our regular speech functions. Everything goes out of sync and our words don't match up to what's in our minds.

What's interesting is that what usually brings about these fits of uncomfortableness differs from person to person, as evidenced by the stories below.
