i dont get this picture
obviously some sloppy fuck left their orange peels on the ground and Hillary Clinton happened to be skating by and slipped on them. Not to hard to understand. She still smilin doe
Imagine if people’s hair color matched their eye color
/every person who has brown hair and brown eyes sighs deeply
i’ll take my chance with aliens before i mess w/ whatever is at the bottom of the ocean
and I would walk 500 dogs and I would walk 500 more
are you Daniel Radcliffe?
yes i am
THERE IS SO MUCH GOOD FANFICTION IN THIS WORLD
SO GOD DAMN MUCH
SO MANY FICS THAT I WOULD CUT OFF MY LEFT ARM TO SEE PLAYED OUT
AND PEOPLE CHOSE FIFTY SHADES OF GREY
The scientific method. Use. Use the scientific method. “We may never know.” Bologna. Use the scientific method.
They don’t have that. They have MAGIC.
Where there are patterns of cause and effect, the scientific method has insight. But if they’d started using it we’d all be aparating on fucking Mars by now.
The scientific method isn’t really a great way to determine “hmm how did this baby not die when all those other people did” because what are you gonna do to prove whatever your hypothesis is? Avada Kedavra at a bunch of babies whose parents love them very much? Good luck finding your test subjects, dude.
They could have done autopsies on the victims of the Avada Kedavra curse, compared to autopsies on people who died of natural causes, eventually isolating the true cause-of-death in the bodies of the victims, and then use this new understanding to create an effective counter-curse without anyone needing to sacrifice their life for their child.
The scientific method could also be used to isolate the composition of Phoenix tears, the process by which they spark perfect cellular regeneration, and then synthesize an artificial version with the same effects, essentially rendering all of medical science obsolete.
The “can’t be done” and “we may never know” attitude of the wizarding world has seriously limited their ability to progress as a society.
look okay they’re still using medieval quills over pencils, I think cellular regeneration is still many innovations away in the wizarding world
Yeah but they could make all of those leaps in like a week if they used the scientific method. Bring in like, ten muggle scientists, get them to analyze the shit out of everything, then send them home with some extra spending money and fabricated memories of a science conference out-of-town
Don’t get it mixed up. I’m not just advocating science for the sake of better understanding. I’m a slytherin, so I’m looking for practical applications for the knowledge gained through use of the scientific method.
For example, why is the wizarding world still effectively using carrier pigeons? Sirius Black demonstrated that instantaneous communication is possible via the floo network, so why not fill cigarette lighters with floo powder? This would not only be the wizarding equivalent of a cell phone, but would also allow streamline the process of creating entryways into the floo network.
There are people, like Tonks, who can rewrite their own genetic code with a thought. There are people, like McGonagall, who can completely change species and retain human cognition. There are potions, like Polyjuice, that rewrite your genetic code temporarily, replicating both a person’s nature and nurture. They’ve naturally perfected genetic engineering, but their understanding of how these processes work has left them completely unable to apply it practically.
For example, if they did a little bit of research and development, they could isolate the genes that allow for magical abilities, replicate the process by which Polyjuice Potion works, and synthesize a new potion that allows people like Filch, who were born squibs but desperately want to be wizards, to drink a little bit of potion every day so they’re able to use magic.
Or, if they isolate the genes that allow Tonks and Teddy to rewrite their genetic code at will, as well as the process by which animagi are able to retain their human consciousness while in an animal body, they could easily create an effective treatment for lycanthropy that allows werewolves like Lupin to control the shift between man and wolf and retain control of themselves while in wolf form.
Additionally, if they did research on what contagion causes lycanthropy, they would be so much closer to creating a vaccine that makes it significantly less communicable.

these are incredible

Muggleborns create their own Quidditch team and have an unusual teammate….
the Purebloods can’t understand why they keep chanting…
"WHAT TEAM?" "WILDCATS" "WHAT TEAM?" "WILDCATS" "WILDCATS!"
*Muggleborns use nearly Headless Nick’s now decapitated head as the Quaffle.*
"GET YOUR HEAD IN THE GAME!"
IMAGINE IF SIMON COWELL WAS YOUR DAD AND YOU WERE SINGING IN THE SHOWER AND HE KNOCKED ON THE DOOR AND SAID “ITS A NO FROM ME”
The sexual tension between Ted and Archie at the nintendogs competitions
guYS IM FUCKING CRYING I RAN OUT OF PADS SO I WENT INTO MY MOMS ROOM AND I FOUND ONE BUT I WAS LIKE “OMG THIS IS HUGE MAYBE ITS JUST THE PACKAGING” AND THEN I OPENED IT AND ITS LIKE MORE THAN HALF THE LENGTH OF MY ARM AND ITS BIGGER THAN IT TOO OMG I CANT CLOSE MY LEGS. SEND HELP.
ON THE BRIGHT SIDE I WONT LEAK NOW RIGHT?
lady gets mugged by motorcyclist while driving
is it just me
or does this dog look like leonardo dicaprio
