With the new season of Game of Thrones around the corner, it seems like a good time to look back on some fun facts about the show, no?

This collection of trivia by BuzzFeedVideo spans both the show and the books, and includes stuff like:

  • Where George R.R. Martin got the idea for the books
  • How popular certain names from the show became in real life
  • How someone on the show adopted a direwolf
  • What George R. R. Martin has done in case he dies before finishing the books
  • How a lost best affected the show
  • A toilet incident with Emilia Clarke
  • Some fun particulars about Dothraki

And more. And just in case you knew all of that, here are ten more facts from Alltime10s—a couple are repeats from the first video, but there are a bunch of fresh facts, too, ranging from former porn stars on the show to theories about Westero's peculiar winter seasons.

Hype! Are y'all ready for the new season? Did you know all this trivia? I'm particularly amused by the gummy bear heart + toilet incident—makes me wonder what some of the other stuff in the show is made out of.
