I think "magic" would be the answer to these issues more times than Hanson is comfortable with, but it's still a fun exercise. Also, this video is totally worth it for deciding the planet upon which Westeros rests is named Hodor. Let's all pray to the great god Grrm that this becomes official sooner rather than later.
