I don’t know if this is true, but it’s hysterical

It is, and I am so happy.

So my first thought was, “Why did you bring a cat onto your plane?”, but then I read the excellent link from jump-suit, and learned that

the crew found (the cat) ‘more useful than any barometer. You must never cross the Atlantic in an airship without a cat,’ as Murray Simon put it.

Never cross the Atlantic in an airship without a cat - advice that we should all remember and take to heart.

This post just keeps getting better and better.

Holy crap this is awesome.

my friend saw this. My name is Kat. She is now insisting that I smuggle myself into a bag and go with her on her trip to Germany. I don’t understand why a ticket isn’t enough, she’s actually telling me to get into yoga so I can fit in a bag. Why tumblr.

When Steve Kloves (who wrote the majority of the Potter screenplays) met J.K. Rowling for the first time, he told her straight up that Hermione was his favorite character. Rowling admitted to being relieved, and who could blame her? It was more likely for Hermione to end up disrespected on screen—she wouldn’t be the first female hero to get butchered in the reels.

But this resulted in an undercutting of Ron’s entire character from the first movie. Don’t believe it? When the trio go after the Philosopher’s Stone, they face a series of tests that demand each of their skills in turn. Time likely demanded that this sequence be cut down, and so Hermione’s test—solving Professor Snape’s potion riddle—was removed entirely. To make up for this, she gets them out of the Devil’s Snare, Professor Sprout’s deadly plant. Hermione shouts to Harry and Ron to relax so the foliage will release them—but Ron continues to panic and moan (in campiest fashion possible because he’s played by a child actor and these things are always requested of them), requiring Hermione to blast the thing with a sunlight spell.

In the book, Hermione is the one who panics. She remembers what her lessons taught her—that the Devil’s Snare will recoil at fire—but balks at their lack of matches while they are being strangled to death. Ron immediately shrieks to the rescue YOU ARE A WITCH YOU HAVE A WAND YOU KNOW SPELLS WHAT ARE MATCHES.

It’s a simple change, but it makes such a marked difference in how both characters come off to an audience. Rather than a near-infant, incapable of following the clearest directions, Ron is the even-keeled nitty-gritty one. He’s a tactician, the one who will find the simplest answer to a problem provided that the situation is dire enough to ensure his clear head. Ron is good under pressure and brave to boot. He’s also hilarious.

It is easy to write this off as an actor problem; Emma Watson matured and improved much faster than her costars in terms of talent—and Steve Kloves liked her portrayal so much that he started giving her many of Ron’s important lines. During The Prisoner of Azkaban, Sirius Black is trying to get to Peter Pettigrew (currently disguised as Scabbers the Rat), but Ron and Hermione are convinced he’s after Harry. In the book, Ron stares up defiantly from his mangled, broken leg and tells Sirius Black that if he wants Harry, he’ll have to get through his friends first.

Yeah, my leg hurts way too much, Hermione. You take this one. But say it’s from me. And in the film, it’s Hermione who boldly steps in the line of fire while Ron sobs in pain and babbles incoherently.

These rewrites not only depict Ron as an idiot coward—they also make him an outright jerk. When Professor Snape snaps at Hermione yet again for being an insufferable know-it-all, movie-Ron gives her a look and drawls, “He’s right, you know.” Wait, what?! Harry, why are you friends with this prick? Well, maybe because the Ron Weasley that J.K. Rowling put on paper was in that exact same situation, and immediately leapt to Hermione’s defense when she was being abused by a teacher—“You asked us a question and she knows the answer! Why ask if you don’t want to be told?”

This is my little cat Angelina.

A little under 2 years ago, she was taken from my front garden by two men in Irvine, Scotland. She was used as a game at their drunken party, where they apparently drugged her and then proceeded to cut off her ears, and her tail whilst taking pictures and videoing the whole thing.

She was then left in a bedroom over night as they waited for her to bleed out, so they could throw her out dead somewhere in the morning. When they found her alive in the morning, they put her in a polythene bag inside a dog-mess bin.

In the early hours of the next morning, she was mieowing on our doorstep and flipping open the letterbox after making her way back home, where we rushed her to the nearest emergency vet in the mindset she would have to get put down. 

After 22 long months, Angelina is still alive today. Yesterday, 3rd of April 2014 - Owen McCullagh got sentenced 15 months (after pleading guilty at Kilmarnock Sherriff Court, claiming it was just a laugh) imprisonment for causing unnecessary suffering to wee Angelina and the other charged (Craig Higgins) plea of not guilty got accepted.

For those of you on my blog, who wouldn’t normally reblog things like this. I’m asking you please just to reblog, share on facebook, twitter, whatever you like to raise awareness for animal cruelty. The justice system does not do enough for animal cruelty situations and it’s honestly disgusting the fact that they’d need to do anything! Cruelty to animals should not even be a thing, it is sick, vile and pathetic, and quite frankly if it was left to me, he would have been on death row and not just in jail for 15 months.

It’s about time we stood up against animal cruelty.

What in the holy hell?!
