A guy is taking his girlfriend to prom. He waits in the ticket line for a really long time but gets them. He goes to rent a limo. The rental line is really long but he eventually does it. He goes to buy her flowers. The line at the florist is really long but eventually he gets the flowers. At prom, she asks him to go get punch. He goes to the refreshment table and there’s no punchline.
you’ve got to be kidding me
I am in physical pain
… If you’re a Harry Potter fan, this is wonderful news. [The study] provides some experimental backing for J.K. Rowling’s opinion that, “The Potter books in general are a prolonged argument for tolerance, a prolonged plea for an end to bigotry.”
More importantly, it shows that conveying messages of tolerance through literature actually works. Potter’s journey of self-discovery, then, might some day be immortalized in projects that aim to teach tolerance to young children.
Friendly reminder that this deleted scene in Deathly Hallows Part 2 exists. When Voldemort asks him to choose sides, he goes to the Death Eaters because the Dark Lord has already won and his duties lie as always, with his family. And yet as soon as Harry reveals he’s still alive, Draco knows there’s still a chance that Voldemort will be defeated and he takes it. And throws Harry his wand! The Boy Who Made All the Wrong Choices finally makes the right choice!
It always annoys me when they left out IMPORTANT scenes like this.
