Sesame Street thinks it has the answer to all of the problems depicted on HBO's Game of Thrones.


The wildly popular series about seven strained families vying for the Iron Throne returned last week and the first episode, titled "Winterfell," reminded us that none of these people get along.

A tense negotiation between Tyrion and Cersei Lannister is sidelined once Elmo shows up to preach about this little thing called "respect." Yes, it seems the Lannisters never even listened to that famous Aretha Franklin song.

"Elmo thinks that you two need to respect each other," says Elmo, who adds:

"When Elmo has a problem with his friends like Abby or Cookie Monster, Elmo doesn't get upset. Elmo listens and learns from what they have to say."

"If we stop fighting and work together, we can be stronger," realizes Tyrion, and before you know it, Tyrion and his sister are setting aside their differences faster than you can say Valar morghulis.

Who knew Elmo could succeed at what (now) eight seasons of television were utterly unable to achieve?

Seriously: Who knew?!






Thanks, Sesame Street. We'll just defer to you next time.

While starting a family and having children is a goal that many people have, some do not realize that it's not easy, fun, and loving one-hundred percent of the time. Rather, it's expensive, exhausting, and hard, though it might be worth it in the end.

With this in mind, people shared what they felt were the hardest hurdles of their parenting.

Positive emotions are high among people in the blossoming phase of relationships.

Everything seems more romanticized for people in love due to the amorous joy in their hearts–which also influences their desire to frequently get it on under the sheets–or any other daring location in the heat of the moment.

But for those who've declared "'til death do us part," devoted couples may find that they are not always on the same wavelength sexually compared to when they first met.

There are a number of things people partake in spite of the known possible ramifications they have on their health and safety.

Up to and including smoking, bungee-jumping, recreational drug use, or simply bike riding without a helmet.

Indeed, even though they know that doing any or all of these things could possibly lead to their death, they do it anyway.

Sadly, even though many people go out of their way to avoid doing these things for that very reason, that still doesn't mean they keep themselves completely out of danger.

Sadly, there are a surprisingly large number of things that lead to an even more surprising number of deaths each year.

Frighteningly, these are things that the majority of the world's population does on an almost daily basis.

When Americans visit a foreign country, they tend to notice immediate cultural differences from the minute they step off the plane.

Unique bathroom designs, how you might have to be more specific when ordering coffee in Australia, how many businesses in Spain tend to shut down for a few hours to take a siesta.

Needless to say, this goes both ways, as when people from all over the world visit the United States, they tend to be surprised and amazed by a number of things.

Ranging from the amusing, such as portion sizes and ineffective tea brewing (at least for the Brits) to the truly baffling (HEALTHCARE).
