UC Berkeley Now Offers Course On The Language of Dothraki From ‘Game Of Thrones’

It costs $29,572 (In state) or $52,450 (Out of state) to attend University of California at Berkeley for one year. That's quite a lot of money and one would want to be sure to take classes that would actually help to one day foster a career. Oddly enough, UC Berkeley is now offering a course that will teach students Dothraki, the fantasy language from Game of Thrones.
                         
David J. Peterson, the linguist that developed the make believe Dothraki language used by the nomadic horse-mounted warriors in Essos, will be teaching students how to speak like Khal Drogo.
“[The class is] best understood as an art course, the same way a figure drawing course might include a fairly rigorous component on human anatomy,” Peterson justifies his six-week course and Berkeley salary.

Students will learn important sayings such as:

Ifas maisi yeri. – Go walk with your mother.
Anha zalak asshekhqoyi vezhvena yeraan! – I wish you a happy birthday!
Ezas eshna gech ahilee! – Find another hole to dig!

New Issue of ‘Batman’ Will Explore His Catholic Upbringing & Why He’s Not a Christian Anymore

The recent run of Batman comics by red-hot comic book writer Tom King has really leaned into Batman’s human side, exploring his loneliness, mental health and doomed romantic life more profoundly than any in recent memory. And now, it appears, the series is going to tackle yet another of the Dark Knight’s all-too-human experiences: lost faith.In a preview of an upcoming issue illustrated by Lee Weeks and released to Inverse, Bruce Wayne reveals that his father raised him as a Christian. Wayne’s father, as you may be aware, is no longer in the picture, and when he died, he took Bruce’s fledgling faith with him. No word on whether or not Bruce is going to rediscover his faith as part of this story, but he’s not in a great place, generally. His bride-to-be, Catwoman, stood him up at the altar and he’s in trouble with the law for possibly botching a case. So, if ever there was a time for Batman to turn to a higher power, it might be now.You can read the full preview here.
