Harry Potter Tragedy (No Spoilers)

I've been so careful!

When I heard that the last Harry Potter book had been leaked online I didn't visit anyplace that I thought might be suspect. No Wikipedia or Google for me. And I wasn't going anywhere near the reviews at the New York Times or the Baltimore Sun.

But this morning! This morning! Damn you Publishers Weekly! There was a YouTube video up on a book blog this morning showing a person spoiling the end of HP Book SIX for people waiting in line at a Barnes and Noble at the book release party in 2005. A guy was driving by in a car while screaming out the window "Snape kills Dumbledore!" at the top of his lungs. I realize now that I was damning myself the moment I laughed at this video but I thought, what the hell.

I figured I'd send this to my old boss, she'd think this was funny. I copied the link into my email (which I will not be linking to here, although you can find it under "Snape Kills Dumbledore").

Now pay attention because here is the key moment.

I clicked on the link in my email to confirm that the link worked and immediately up popped the YouTube window. However, before the video showed the comments became clear. And in the comments was THE LIST OF ALL THE CHARACTERS WHO DIE IN THE SEVENTH BOOK!!!


Fortunately I only saw two names, and in a discussion yesterday with Frinklin ("name three characters you think are going to die") I had already guessed one of them.

I know this is silly and not a big deal in the grand scheme, but I'd like not to know the ending going into this. I'm not a big mystery reader, in fact, I hate mysteries normally. But I do enjoy the Harry Potter books, and would like to have it be a surprise the first time around.

That will teach me not to laugh at other people's misfortune.

I only have one non-obvious character I suspect and that's Lucius. No one agrees w/ me though.

I've noticed that credit restoration activity should be conducted with techniques. If not, you could possibly find yourself endangering your rank. In order to realize your aspirations in fixing your credit rating it's important to confirm that from this moment in time you pay all within your monthly dues promptly in advance of their planned date. It is significant on the grounds that by not accomplishing that, all other steps that you can decide to try to improve your credit positioning will not be effective. Many thanks for expressing your ideas.
