At least the drivers stopped hitting people with their buses. BTW if you kill someone with your Metro bus by running a red light you can keep your job. Also if you get off your Metro bus and punch McGruff the Crime Dog in the head you can keep your job, because you didn't do it with malicious intent. Although I'm not sure how you can punch someone in the head without it being malicious intent.

I heard about this when I went to the bank during lunch and I laughed, then I felt a little bad, then I didn't.

Harry was inconsolable. He really should have learned some healing spells! An obvious lack in his education.

I know this not even remotely close to a snowy owl, but..

My buddy hit a seagull in consecutive days...in our downtown.  Bam, right into the car.

I noticed that too. Hermione, pretty much, carried Team Potter. It's not that Harry or Ron were slackers; they didn't really read anything outside of the required course material.

/ Besides that whole episode with dementors; and I suppose you could count Dumbledore's Army

He did by the end, right around the same time he realized he should have learned about healing. Doesn't that count for something?

The city is not a good place for a land-based, flying bird. We, in Ocean Shores, are a major stopping place on the Snowy Owl migration route. Snowy Owls twice a year. They usually stick to Damon Point state park, but can jump in front of your car and beat it. That, too, is not good for the Snowy Owl

/The birders are just as bad about jumping yer car.
//...but running them over isn't a $2k fine.

The owl suffered a head injury and survived, but details of the incident remain sketchy.

Hopefully, the owl will recover soon to provide a step by step account of what happened.

The problem lay with the undue emphasis on sports (quidditch) at an educational institution. If Harry and Ron had ever bothered to study instead of spending so much time practicing and playing a sport, they might have learned enough to keep poor Hedwig from being blasted by an Avada Kedavra... You know, critical thinking skills that would have made both of them sit up and say, "Wait, seven people who look like Harry on brooms? This convoluted cockamamie scheme is the best you idiots can come up with? How about somebody shrinks all of Harry's belongings and pockets them, then hands Harry a friggin' portkey?!?!? No, instead, let's put more than a dozen people at risk. That makes much more sense!"

/THANKS ROWLING!!!

How old is this owl?  Maybe he was trying to get to the snowy owl fields in the afterlife.  Why you got to give him the fail tag?

Don't hold back now, let it all out.

For fear of letting too much nerd out: (1) I don't remember seeing any shrinking spells, wasn't there a mass requirement for transfiguration? (2) Weren't they just kids anyway? Teen boys are prats in real life, shouldn't they be prats in books too? [Cue Akbar, "IT'S A PRAT!"] (3) Portkeys had trackers on them by Voldy supporters in the Ministry, and that was fairly advanced magic anyway.
