the known world: THE QUEENS THAT NEVER WERE  

        For forty-six years, the Old King and Good Queen Alysanne were wed, and for the most part it was a happy marriage, with children and grandchildren aplenty.
        Two estrangements are recorded, but they did not last more than a year or two before the pair resumed their customary friendship. The Second Quarrel, however, is of note, as it was due to Jaehaerys’s decision in 92 AC to pass over his granddaughter Rhaenysthe daughter of his deceased eldest son and heir, Prince Aemonin favor of bestowing Dragonstone and the place of heir apparent on his next eldest son, Baelon the Brave.        
        
Alysanne saw no reason why a man should be favored over a woman…and if Jaehaerys thought women of less use, then he would have no need of her. They reconciled in time, but the Old King outlived his beloved queen, and in his last years it was said that the grief of their parting hung over his court like a pall.

Carded a man when he bought cigarettes and he starts ranting that 'he's been buying cigarettes since before I was born he shouldn't have to show ID'. He was born in '92. He's 24. ONE year older than me. Dude when I was born you were still shitting in diapers, sit down and stop making a damn fool of yourself.
