George R R Martin hoping hackers can tell him what happens in Game of Thrones

GEORGE R R Martin is hoping hackers who stole Game of Thrones scripts can tell him how it all ends.

The author, who has been struggling to think of an ending for his fantasy epic, has asked the hackers threatening HBO if he could have a quick look at the scripts for the next season.

Martin said: “At the moment it’s all gotten very complicated, there are dragons here, knights there, those zombie things are kicking off plus there’s some other mystical stuff about ravens.

“I have no fucking idea what to put in the next book so I’d really like to see what happens in the telly series.

“I should really have been watching it but just hearing the word ‘dragon’ gives me a mild panic attack.”

Scottish teenagers get their weird, creepy exam results

SCOTTISH teenagers are receiving the results of their bizarre and unnatural ‘Higher’ exams.  

The exams, a twisted version of perfectly ordinary GCSEs and A-levels from an alternate timeline, are accepted by Scots as normal but shunned and feared by everyone else. 

Margaret Gerving, a retired headmistress from Guildford, said: “On her death bed in 1603, Elizabeth I cursed her hated Scotland never to have a functioning education system. 

“The desperate Caledonians made a diabolical bargain with ancient powers from outside our reality, and in return were given qualifications that would drive ordinary teenagers mad. 

“This warped system, in which schoolchildren are given incomprehensible certificates proclaiming them to have ‘Nationals’, ‘Highers’ or ‘Advanced Highers’, continues to this day. 

“To English employers and universities, these are the mark of the Beast. Any CVs which contain them should be burned in a basement at midnight.” 

18-year-old Will McKay of Stirling said: “Aw great, I got all As in my Highers. Now I can shift shape and jump between dimensions.”
