No body wants to play quidditch. First you play to get the girls.....

Harry Potter's parents were killed when he was a baby and he had to live with an uncle, aunt, cousin that mistreated him. It was only when he was eleven that he went to Hogwarts and had a family and friends. Even there he was taunted for not having parents, Ron was made fun of because his family were poor and Hermione because she was a "mudblood", that is too say of non-wizarding family.

Most of us can identify with the characters in the book and the troubles they have. I think we would also like to have a Dumbledore in our lives as well as a Hagrid. (Rowling named him that because she imagined him humming all the time and dumbledore is German for bumblebee.)

I'm afraid I am completely out of touch with this. I'm bossing out with the super dope rain storms. Quidditch? Is it anything like soccer?

Flying brooms and parachutes so you dont die when you fall off. HP quiddich? Definitely. But "muggle quiddich"... it is the saddest thing I have seen in my life when college students do it. No you're not flying. No you're not living in a fantasy world. I'm picturing a fully grown man/woman going WHEEE on their broom while walking on two legs. How is that cool?

On flying brooms? Hell yes. NOT on flying brooms? No. The point of Quidditch is flying brooms.

I'd also love to be able to wave a wand and shoot a spell out of it, but I'd not get all that excited about waving a lit roman candle around and shouting "Expelliarmus!" either.

Personal flying device - awesome. Playing a game - don't care.

Emily must have been living under a rock during the whole Harry Potter phase. Even if you have never read the books or seen the movies, how do you not know what it is? I can understand older folks not knowing, but she seems pretty young.

Skyler you were supposed to say, "All I need are some tasty waves, a cool buzz, and I'm fine."

As long as we are talking about the Harry Potter fantasy version ... absolutely. "Bossing out on a Firebolt..."
