THIS! Also I wish Rowling would have explored Hermione’s motivations more, because damn, these tags did a better job at explaining her motivations than the actual books. I mean, seriously, we get to know all about Ron, get to learn all his deepest fears and his greatest motivations, get to meet each member of his family, get to see where he lives, get to know him outside the context of being one of Harry’s best friends… but Hermione? Well, we don’t even get to know half of that.
Hermione is one of my favorite characters, but we don’t get to know Hermione like we do Ron. In fact, this can be said of most of the women in the series when you think about it.Since everyone’s already talking about Hermione, I’d like to bring this back. I have a lot of feelings about the women in Harry Potter.
A critically ill Maltese terrier has been saved from near certain death by getting blind drunk.
Charlie was rushed to pet A&E by his owner after he licked up some anti-freeze from her garage floor in Melbourne, Australia.
Realising he was suffering from Ethylene Glycol poisoning, quick thinking vets began giving Charlie vodka through tubes into his nose a stomach.
The ethanol in vodka alters the chemical reaction that the coolant triggers when broken down in the liver preventing kidney failure, vets atMelbourne’s’ Animal and Accident Emergency said.
“In Australia, the only antidote we have is alcohol…In fact for the whole weekend, Charlie had a huge party with us in the Pet ICU,” the team said in a blogpost.
The small terrier was given 70cl - an entire bottle - of vodka over two days, after which he showed no signs of kidney failure. He was however left nursing a big hangover.
“He just slept and slept and slept,” owner Jacinta Rosewarne toldThe Herald Sun.
“He was definitely drunk,” she added. “He was stumbling around, I’d go to pat him and he’d push me away like a normal drunk person, he was vomiting a little, whining like a drunk.”
“I thought it was hilarious … It was distressing but funny at the same time.”
