Want to Colonize an Alien Planet? Send 40,000 People
If humanity ever wants to colonize a planet beyond the solar system, it’s going to need a really big spaceship.

I DHOULDNT BE LAUGHING THIS HARD.
I love playing Brienne of Tarth because, when I was growing up, I didn’t really see people on television that I felt that I could identify with. Women all looked kind of a particular way, women characters that were popular, anyway. And when I had the opportunity to play this part, it made me explore the parts of myself I had hidden from.

But, all kidding aside, I love Make-a-Wish. I support it at every opportunity.
Will you stand with me, one last time?
