Things picked up re-reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone:

When a cat, McGonagal’s glasses become rectangular fur pattern around her eyes.

At the beginning of the first book, Sirius is still a free and innocent man.

Dumbledore has a scar shaped exactly like the map of London Underground (subway) above his left knee. p 15.

Dudley looks like a pig in a wig or alternatively a blonde gorilla.

Aunt Marge eats whelk (snails). p 35

Things that Hagrid keeps in his coat pockets: copper kettles, package of sausages, a teapot, several chipped mugs, bottle of alcohol (p. 48), an owl, a long quill, a roll of parchment (p 52), dormice (p 60), bunches of keys, slug pellets, balls of string, peppermint humbugs, teabags, money (62), moldy dog biscuits (p 73).

According to Hagrid, the main job of Ministry of Magic is  “to keep it from the muggles that there’s still witches an’ wizards  up an’ down the country.” p 65 That’s right, not to govern over the Wizarding World, but to keep Muggles from finding them.

The difference between stalagmite and stalactite is that stalagmite has an ‘m’ on it. p 74

Harry instantly doesn’t like Draco (before knowing who he is) because upon first impression he reminds him of Dudley. p 77-8

In Flourish and Blotts, the first book that Harry gets interested in is Curses and Counter-curses by Professor Vindictus Viridian, to the point that Hagrid has to drag him away. He was looking for a spell to curse Dudley with. p 80

By the time Harry buys his wand, he isn’t sure whether he likes Olivander. p 85

When Ron gets embarrassed by not being able to afford a pet, Harry tells him about his childhood to make him feel better: how he had to always wear hand-me downs and never getting proper birthday presents. p 100

At Hogwarts there are places on walls that pretend to be doors. Some need to be tickled to open in just the right place. p 132

Charlie Weasley was one of the best Quidditch players in Hogwarts, and could have played professionally for England’s team, but chose to go work with Dragons instead. p 170

There are 700 ways to commit a Quidditch foul. p 181

During Christmas, Dumbledore swapped his pointed wizard’s hat for a flowered bonnet. p 203

Unicorns have no trouble taking on werewolves, or at least out running them.

Harry sees the entire Potter family, not just his Mom and Dad in the Mirror of Erised.

Apparently, it’s completely logical to punish 11 year old children who snuck out of bed by giving them all night detention hunting something worse than a werewolf in a forest were other murderous creatures roam, with only a half-giant armed with a crossbow to protect them. Then again, so is keeping a potential-killer dog inside a school.

*I have the new American covers paperback editions. I only have page numbers when I remembered to take them down.

anonymous asked:

Unkar Plutt is definitely a sleaze. He's more subtle about it in the movie, but you clearly get the vibe he's willing to offer Rey more portions if she puts out. In his mind, he pretty much owns her and every other scavenger in Niima. He's basically TFA's version of Jabba the Hut, except he's a blowfish, rather than a giant slug. Personally, I'd love to see a scene in Episode VIII where Kylo visits Jakku wanting more info on Rey, meets Unkar, hears his perverts thoughts, and slice him in half.


Filing this under: things I didn’t know I needed, but now I can’t go without.

The habenero slug produces a hot ‘n spicy slime coating sufficient to deter most predators. Unfortunately, in recent years, the habenero slug has become highly prized as a spice, and are kept in small terrariums and ‘milked’ regularly. Since the slugs require highly specific mating conditions, (proper phase of the moon, great heat, and a suitable chili bog) they are nearly impossible to breed in captivity and are growing increasingly rare in the wild. - Ursula Vernon
