It would be kind of amazing if this fizzled and the statue stayed standing. :D
That's what I was thinking as well, actually. How many fans will want it left up because the fact that New Zealand has a full sized statue from GoT is absolutely fantastic? Not only that, but the statue actually seems like something that would exist in-universe as well, unlike that Robocop statue they're putting up in Detroit.

OT: Come to think of it, has that Robocop statue been put in place yet? Last I checked they had it more or less ready, but that was almost a year ago.
I'd love to see it stay up, but since there's no way to hashtag for that and only the haters get to vote it's pretty inevitable it'll come down.

Is it me or they are really spoiling the show? It's not the first Joffrey centric publicity I've seen too. His death will be less of a surprise like the one for Rob.
It may be spoiling (although Joff getting his comeuppance is long overdue for most fans), but some people will think that it's just riding on the wave of Joffrey Hate. Since the first season they've been happy to milk that cow for all it's worth.

OT: Man, that website is awful. From Camera 1, you can barely see the statue behind the Twitter feed showing the latest tweet, the unnecessary cog.gif, the "Voices of the People" (a duplicate twitter feed showing the past two tweets), the social media buttons, the "switch camera" button, and the "Live from Auckland" burned into the footage. It's a neat idea, but they really need a web designer fast before this catches on.
I've read the books and am watching the TV show - they are sort of bleeding into each other, with truncated story lines from the show mixing with the longer book material!

Not really, that's considered low-rez. Most PC enthusiasts have a 1920x1080 resolution on something 20+inch screens (and that's low balling it). Yes, I think you do have website issues with your personal view as mine sees the square perfectly fine, statue and all (and by "all" I mean the man to the left on the bench eating lunch and the couple on the bench behind to the right). The Twitter feed is to the far right of all that, the cog counter above that and the camera embed link to left-upper from the bench eating guy. So, there's really no issue on my end, or the website for that matter. It's a matter of the use (i.e. you) having a small monitor and low rez screen. Sorry, but true.
People who spend 400+dollars on a monitor are not the standard.
Oh, really? Took me all of less than 30sec to find http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824254112 ($140 for a 23inch monitor).

The 'myth' that gaming PC's or quality PC parts are expensive is beyond old and has been proven wrong many times. No, you don't need $5,000 to get a good gaming PC (contrary to whatever Gametrailers.com is spewing).

I guess it is standard that people are completely uneducated in electronics and their peripherals.

Eh. I don't know how to feel about this... since..

It makes it a little obvious to those who haven't read the books that Joffrey's going to get shanked this season, lol. My friend saw this and then guessed it "That probably means Joffrey's going to get sacked".
