So I should probably wait on that email I was going to send the Senator about supporting high-speed rail.

How I Actually Left Work Today

  • 1: Are you really that concerned with beauty? Like, do you walk out your door and say "what an incredibly gorgeous hydrangea?"
  • 2: Well, I'm a poet, so if I don't roll around in the grass whispering lines of Whitman at least once a day I think I lose my ability to write.
  • 1: [Laughing] Wait, are you serious?
  • 2: [Opens door, walks outside, yells:] A CHILD SAID, WHAT IS THE GRASS? FETCHING IT TO ME WITH FULL HANDS; HOW COULD I ANSWER THE CHILD? I DO NOT KNOW WHAT IT IS ANY MORE THAN HE.

I’m about this close to dropping everything for a road trip. The nicer it is outside, the more time I want to spend with my windows down blasting albums I love,

Man lets bees sting his genitals for science
Michael Smith was studying honeybees at Cornell when one flew up his shorts and stung him in a delicate place, as National Geographic reports. Yet unlike most people, who would have screamed and sworn and maybe put on pants, Smith used the unexpected sting as inspiration to study where a bee could do the most damage in terms of sheer pain.

Scientists.

"What are you looking for in an apartment?"

oh, you know, the usual. I need a bathroom where the plug is close enough to the toilet so I can dry my hair while taking a dump, I need a living room roughly the size (but not necessarily the same shape) as a standard MMA octagon ring, I need enough windowless walls to set up a nauseating amount of bookshelves, and a kitchen made for someone who is under 4’ 11”. Oh, and it needs to be pet friendly. I have a capybara.

When I used to think about Voldemort’s horcruxes I imagined a soul divided in equal portions residing in the different horcruxes and Voldemort himself. I realised that this can’t be true in The Half-Blood Prince Slughorn describes making a horcrux as splitting ones soul in two. This means that when Riddle made his Diary into a horcrux he split his soul in half and physically removed one half from his body and placed it in the diary. This means that he only had half of his soul left when he made his next horcrux, Marvolo’s ring. This half would have been split in half leaving only a quarter in Voldemort’s body. This goes on and on the amount of soul remaining in Voldemort halving each time he makes a horcrux until he had only 1/128 or 0.78125% left in his body.  As shown in the graph above.  So next time you wonder why Voldemort could have done some of things he did, remember how little human he had left in him. I don’t know about you but I think that this is crazy.

Come on guys, I didn’t do maths for 14 notes

So are you telling me that Harry had more Voldemort than Voldemort had Voldemort? 

Also, Ginny took on way more of Voldemort’s soul than Harry and even Dumbledore ever did.

And yet Harry was still attracted most to Ginny so was that Voldemort’s ego talking or was it just Harry seeing someone as broken and involved as he was TELL ME JK I CAN’T EVEN.
