Around  a hundred and fifty years ago, the gleaming Hogwarts Express sets off on its very first journey, ferrying hundreds of bright young witches and wizards to school

A hundred and twenty two years ago, Albus Dumbledore sits humming merrily, while little Elphias Doge knocks nervously on the compartment door

Seventy-seven years ago, Tom Riddle sits quietly at a window on the Hogwarts Express, wondering about what lay ahead

Fifty years ago, a beaming Arthur Weasley explains the workings of this amazing muggle invention called the television to a giggling Molly Weasley while the train chugs along

Forty-seven years ago, Lucius Malfoy rests his head on Narcissa Black’s lap in their private compartment as she strokes his golden hair, smiling

Forty-three years ago, Lily Evans decides that she doesn’t like that smirking bespectacled twit who just insulted her best friend and storms out of the compartment

Twenty-five years ago, Fred and George Weasley grin at each other as they plot their very first Welcome Feast prank

Twenty-three years ago, Harry Potter smiles at Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger tell her future husband that he’s got a smudge on his nose

Three years later, Albus Severus Potter will step onto the gleaming Hogwarts Express with his James Sirius and Rose as their parents and little Lily Luna wave them goodbye and the circle of life continues

Daniel Dennett called Darwin’s principle of natural selection “the single best idea anyone has ever had.”

Obviously Dennett never encountered a Snuggie.

My pysch homework is actually really interesting and I would (maybe) be enjoying this except there is so much of it that I want to jump out a window



Our Pope, ladies and gentlemen ♥

He is so amazing! It took us 2,000 years to find a pope like him but now he’s here! God Bless Pope Francis!

i want a relationship but i want them to be like a friend to me, i dont want the relationship to be all about kissing, making out and sex i just wanna hang out with them, and go places, and just have fun wherever we go

This post is surreal because that is exactly how a healthy relationship should be yet we’re convinced this is a weird and unusual thing to ask of our partners.

Who needs sleep when you have adrenaline and caffeine

A questionable noise just came from my closet and I’m pretty sure that something just fell over but it could also be a monster coming to eat me so if I don’t survive the night y’all were awesome
