Do you know why there weren’t any Slytherins joining the D.A.? Because they were already studying and doing DADA spells in the privacy of their own dorms and common room. Do you really think for one second that a Slytherin was going to take Umbridge seriously with her theories-only teaching method? Not on your life. They were going to smile and agree with the ugly toad, and then practice behind her back WITHOUT having to risk breaking curfew and bringing down Umbridge’s wrath on them. Easier time at school and still learning.

Potter could have learned a thing or two from them.

"I met my wife at a Star Trek convention. She was study abroad from France and spoke little English, and I didn’t know a lick of French. So, for the first few months of our relationship, we communicated by speaking Klingon."

Hear more tales of nerdery in this week’s Pwn Up! (via dorkly)

Okay I’m not even a Star Trek fan but that’s beautiful.

Actress comes on show and I immediately have an irrational dislike for her for no apparent reason.

Oh.  Meryl Streep’s daughter.

Meryl, how is it that your children are so horribly untalented?

Dragons are awe-inspiring patchwork creatures found in the myths and legends of cultures all around the world.

In Europe, they are nightmarish fire-spewing reptiles, large and lizard-like, with the forked tongue of a snake and wings like a bat. In the legends, they are reviled and feared because they liked to imprison maidens, destroy villages and hoard over mountains of gold.

In the ancient cultures of Mexico and South America, a divine feathered serpent known by various names was believed to renew the world after each cycle of destruction.

In China, dragons are amphibious creatures that dwell in oceans, lakes, rivers and even raindrops. They are revered as life-giving symbols of fortune and fertility, capable of unleashing rain in times of drought. They are animal mosaics, possessing the body of a snake, the scales of a fish, the talons of an eagle, the antlers of a stag, and the face of a gilin—another mythical creature that resembles a deer but whose body is wreathed in flames.

I always figured it was Richard’s decision and she didn’t have a good way of talking him out of it.  She couldn’t very well say “no we can’t name her after your mother, I hate that woman”.
