didn’t the goblet of fire cover this

because how else would Ireland win but krum catch the snitch

actually in prisoner of Azkaban, didn’t Gryffindor need a certain amount of points to proceed to the finals, and that’s why Oliver Wood told Harry to wait until they had scored a certain amount of points before he caught the snitch?

Catching the snitch ends the game and is worth the most points, but it doesn’t guarantee a win. Just like tumblr user samuel-vimes said, Krum caught the snitch at the World Cup Finals, but Ireland still won in the end because they still had more points.

Also the way the ranking system works in the international quidditch league, and I assume at Hogwarts, according to JK Rowlings new reveal, is that teams are awarded a certain amount of points based on the amount of points a team wins by and thats how they are ranked against each other. Rowling said that a win by 150 points = 5 points, 100 points = 3 points, 50 points = 1 point, and a winner of a tie is whoever caught the snitch the quickest. So theoretically a team that only catches the snitch but wins by a margin of less than 50 points is awarded no points and might as well of not caught thats why Wood told Harry to wait until they were up a certain number of points in order to increase their overall ranking and win the cup.

And gosh, a good chunk of you people claim to hate sports.

We do hate sports. All the ones that don’t involve flying broomsticks and slightly murderous balls that try to knock you off them.

How come you get mad about Sam pepper prank, but then other youtubers do it, and it isn't a problem?

gracehelbl0g answered:

I’m not sure which YouTubers you’re referring to because the ones I watch raise $500,000 for LGBT youth, support pledges against sexual assault and violence, organize food drives to help the homeless, and raise over $145,000 to provide clean water to those in need.

The YouTubers I watch are starring in movies and writing books and creating original content. The YouTubers I watch are making podcasts, traveling the world, doing live shows, writing music, starring on television, designing clothing lines. The YouTubers I watch are allowed to attend Vidcon, Playlist Live, and Summer In The City. The YouTubers I watch are making a difference, not making women feel uncomfortable.






Malcolm X: Our History Was Destroyed By Slavery 

on March 17, 1963 in Chicago.

see how little we get taught about history - I never had any idea why Malcolm X used the ‘X’. 

How come I didn’t know this

Also that crusty old white man called the named ‘gifted’. Jesus.

I remember being in American History in high school and wondering why they never taught us about Malcolm X as much as Martin Luther King Jr. so I went home that day and bought the DVD and watched it. I learned way more from that than I did from anything in high school.

My english teacher will go on rants sometimes about why we should all be like Malcolm X and not Martin Luther king Jr cause Malcolm X got shit done
