There are plenty of amazing places to visit in Westeros but let's face it: if you haven't found time to see them during the decade-long summer that just took place, you're not making time for it now. What with winter about to set in, the world on the brink of war, and danger lurking at every corner? The Hand of the King just got murdered in cold blood for crying out loud, right after someone poisoned the King himself. Who could vacation at a time like this?

Farmers probably never made much bank in Game of Thrones to begin with but between the changing seasons, the thieving hoards of nomads and/or wildlings, and the sudden resurgence of livestock-devouring real life fucking DRAGONS, being a farmer today is pretty much just waiting to die. Granted that also describes about 90% of the universe's entire population right now, but still, definitely not the best time to be in the business of maintaining and defending food supplies in isolated locations.

Sure, every time there's a war some cities will inevitably need rebuilt, but beyond that there really isn't a whole lot going on in the way of property development when it comes to Game of Thrones. Have you looked around this place? Every building in the universe is like a thousand years old. Unless of course you count the shacks and huts lowly peasants live in, but it's not like any of THEM are going to upgrade anytime soon. Who would pay for it? Rich people? What do they care? Anyone who has enough money to buy a house ALREADY LIVES IN ONE.

For centuries, dragon insurance must have been the gift that kept on giving for insurance companies, but not anymore. Add to that the fact you've now got groups of wildling cannibals wiping out entire villages for the fuck of it in the north plus a wandering herd of Dothraki and Unsullied armies pillaging every city they encounter Across the Narrow Sea, and suddenly the idea of selling damage control isn't nearly as profitable as it once seemed. Oh well, surely by the end of next season all the current crises will be resolved and everything will be back to normal, right? What could possibly go wrong?

Slaves are great, from an economic standpoint, that is, but if you're in an industry that uses their labor to turn a profit in Game of Thrones, it might be time to consider a new line of work. For one thing, there's a Dothraki queen with an army of thousands of trained killers and three fire-breathing dragons whose stated goal in life is to free every slave and bring justice to their masters and for another thing, DID YOU HEAR WHAT THE FIRST THING WAS? Yeah, might be time to open a brothel or become a fisherman or something. Ooh, maybe a poison maker? Seems like there's probably a HUGE need for people like that right now. Speaking of which...

There probably used to be a time when citizens of Westeros couldn't WAIT to plan a big extravagant wedding for all their friends and family but in this day and age? Probably not so much. Sure, it seems like a good idea at first but then you have to deal with the invitations and coordinating everyone's schedules then the caterer drops the ball then your chief political rival murders you and your entire family in cold blood before the ceremony even starts then by the end of it you're just like, you know what? Who needs that kind of hassle?
