  1. Haha, hilarious. But yeah, I suppose one thread is enough. Thanks for providing the link, Imagine.
  2. A few people freaked out about the face licking, but they're dogs after all! A very cute clip.
  3. Aaaaactually... Antimatter was "discovered" quite some time ago (1928 in theory and 1932 in practice). Antimatter atoms, that is atoms made up of antimatter, were first seen at CERN in 1995. So the new discovery this article talks about is that recently the people at CERN managed to not only produce antimatter atoms, but also to keep them alive for more than the tenth of a second. This opens up possibilities to do some closer examinations, because previously, those atoms were so short-lived that you could do little more than detect the presence before they found a matter partner and were an
  4. The old series come on DVD as well. I had never heard of Doctor Who before the relaunch in 2005, but it quickly became my all-time favourite series. I'm not quite through with the fifth series though, because the box set came out only a few days ago. I might sound like a fan boy, but I can't imagine a better Doctor than the tenth. David Tennant and the Doctor were made for each other (or maybe I'm just in love with David Tennant in general). Having said that, I think Matt Smith does a fabulous job. He's smart (and stupid) and funny and mad and handsome and has managed to find his very own
  5. Yes, I think it's "Here Emma Watson breaks down."

    Oh, I thought no one knew them. In fact, I barely do. Someone posted a video of Sæglópur on Facebook and I thought that would be a great background music for a video I was making, so I went ahead and bought the mp3. And although I read up on them a bit during the process, I haven't listened to any other songs from them yet. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zgEGVKwURKc

    Well, I don't doubt it works in Rowling's world, she invented the rules. Maybe I really should have a look at "Quidditch through the ages", I haven't read it either. But I think what you said about the points makes a lot of sense: Catching the Snitch is worth 15 goals, so if it's all about points at the end of the year, it absolutely makes sense to catch the Snitch and take 150 points for yourself and not risk the opposing team getting them. Yes, I suppose it's natural for the seeker to "at least catch the Snitch", but as yorkshire said: Maybe the other team members aren't always thrilled

    Actually, I would have expected this to be considered a blunder by the team's seeker. In football, there's the time limit, so all you can do is try to score as many goals as possible before time runs out. In Quidditch, it's the seekers who decide when the game ends, and ending the game while your team is losing doesn't seem like a wise move. So I suppose it would have to be about not having a chance anyway and trying to end it quickly, maybe to not exhaust your players in a game they cannot win.
  9. Yay for Sebastian Vettel. http://www.smilies.4-user.de/include/Flaggen/deutschland_3.gif

    So, I'm currently reading the fifth book and Ginny just caught the Snitch at a Quidditch game. Gryffindor still lost, because the other side had enough goals. So I can't help thinking: Why, as a seeker, would you want to catch the Snitch if your team is that far behind? You'd want to keep the other seeker from catching it, but catch it yourself? If they catch it, you've lost. If you catch it, you've lost. If neither catches it, you've got a fighting chance. Also, in most cases, the chasers are just there to entertain the crowd while the seekers do their jobs, as it's usually the team that catc
  11. If I remember correctly, I was quite late reading the Half Blood Prince, so I couldn't expect to avoid all spoilers. Luckily enough, "Snape kills Dumbledore" was pretty much all I knew before I read it. And that's not too bad, actually, as the real mistery is why Snape kills him. I suspected all along there may be more to this incident than meets the eye. Obviously, Snape would want to uphold his disguise as a death eater, but killing Dumbledore seemed like too much of a price to pay. I lacked one piece of information to fully understand what was going on: Dumbledore was going to die anyway,
  12. If you're looking for a transcript, here's what I understand. They're talking very fast, though, so it may not all be accurate. Ron: So where do we go from here? Leaky Cauldron? Hermione: It's too dangerous. If Voldemort really has taken over the ministry then none of the old places are safe. Everyone from the wedding will have gone underground, into hiding. Harry: God, my rucksack with all my things, I've left it at the burrow! Harry: You joking? Hermione: I've had all the essentials packed for days, just in case. Ron: By the way: These jeans - not my favourite. Harry: Down! Harry: Stupefy!
  13. I gave it a try after I read your post and then spent hours playing it. Pity there isn't that much to do yet and there's no true goal. After having survived your first night, it's coming up with "I could build this or that" ideas. I found these tutorials to be very entertaining: http://www.youtube.c...er/paulsoaresjr
  14. IBR, and yes, the banner did influence that decision.
  15. I've also seen you go by the name of Daxalicious. When I joined the old forums, I was Antares_GD. I dropped the suffix after one of the restarts when it didn't allow underscores in usernames. I was the only Antares around, so I figured that was alright.
  16. I request an applause smiley. Until that arrives, I'll resort to *clap* *clap* *clap* Thank you, BoMa.
  17. Welcome, Fred. I'm from Germany, too.

    Hi Darlene. Welcome to the forum.
  19. Erm... she's been in Ballet Shoes. And that was no small part.
  20. emma-watson.net and emmawatson.net are actually different sites with different owners. emma-watson.net is the fan site and emmwatson.net only hosts the forums. For several years, both sites cooperated and e-w.net linked to ew.net as its "official" forum. Now, e-w.net got its own forum, on the same server as the fan site.
  21. I remember I was completely amazed about the resolution of PoA, didn't see that coming. It may not be that astonishing compared to your average detective novel, but I certainly didn't expect that from a Harry Potter book at that time.
  22. Haha, no need to be sorry. And welcome to the forums! :wave: I request a :wave: smi... ouch!
  23. Indeed, even though we're growing rapidly right now, we're still a pretty small group, so I think everyone can have a welcome thread of their own.
  24. Haha, so are we! http://www.smilies.4-user.de/include/Froehlich/smilie_happy_249.gif Welcome!
  25. Well, I won't. People would call me a nutter (not that that kept me from doing things like that before. )
