The image of Ginny sitting there next to Rita Skeeter for almost 3 hours, grinding her teeth to keep herself from hexing Rita into a pulp, willing herself to be professional, and finally losing it at the end of the game gives me life.
THIS never gets old.
PETER JACKSON DID NOT USE PIPPIN’S SONG FOR THAT TRAILER. NO HE DIDN’T. MY HEART DID NOT BREAK. NOPE NOPE NOPE.

Harry is the best hope we have. Trust him.
Harry Potter Challenge: Favorite Weasley twin moment/quote:
“Give her hell from us, Peeves.”
And Peeves, whom Harry had never seen take an order from a student before, swept his belled hat from his head and sprang to a salute as Fred and George wheeled about to tumultuous applause from the students below and sped out of the open front doors into the glorious sunset.
“People can come back, right? As ghosts. They don’t have to disappear completely.”

Alan Turing is the father of computer science. He is largely responsible for development of the Turing-Welchman bombe, which effectively cracked Enigma-encoded messages during WWII. He created a formal definition of the algorithm and created the Turing machine. Without him, we may not have computers as we know them to be today.
In 1952, Turing was arrested in the UK for being gay. Instead of serving prison time, he chose the alternative– chemical castration through estrogen therapy. He lost all of his security clearance and could no longer work on his life career of cryptology as a result.
Turing’s favorite children’s tale was Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. In 1954, he was discovered dead in his bedroom. He had committed suicide by eating an apple soaked in cyanide. A memorial for Turing depicts him holding an apple- a symbol for forbidden love. In 2011, a petition was made asking the British Government to pardon Turing’s conviction of gross-indecency. It was rejected by Lord MacNally, who summarily stated Turing knew his actions would result in a criminal offense and therefore should have been prosecuted.
Mr. Turing, I’m sorry. The world can be a cruel place. You are respected and won’t be forgotten. The same can’t be said of many.
