magic shorts out the circut boards and wires of electronic devices bear with me here magic is a form of elecromagnetic radiation, so a strol around hogwarts is basicaly like walking through a mri machine

Bat1701: Hey, I removed the following WMG:

Ron and the rest of his family cannot make Horcruxes
Why? Because they're gingers, and gingers don't have souls! Thus, they could never tear up their soul to create a Horcux.
  • The reason the Weasleys are "gingers" is to counter negative stereotypes. This, just... Gah.
    • Shh. If you don't poke at it, it will go away. Eventually.
  • This ginger resents that theory.

Speaking as yet another ginger, I resent this theory as well. There's fun and then there's mean-spiritedness. Since emotion is so hard to read through just printed words without some very solid pointers, the original poster could have meant it all in good fun or been more serious than I am comfortable with. If the original poster (or someone else) wants to tweek it so it doesn't come across as ginger bashing, they are welcome to do so.

It's a south park reference, probably not a personal statement by the original poster.

Fai-Mommy: Are we allowed to put page quotes on WMG pages? Because I think this quote from HBP might work:

Dumbledore: "From this point forth, we shall be leaving the firm foundation of fact and journeying together through the murky marshes of memory into thickets of wildest guesswork."

Taken out of it's original context, I thought it was funnily appropriate (Except the part about memory might be kind of confusing).

Okay, I looked around for any rules against it and couldn't find any like that, so I added the page quote. Still don't know if it's totally okay because no other WMG pages seem to have page quotes, but I really liked this quote, so...*shrug* If it turns out to be against the rules, then sorry for the trouble and I'll gladly remove it.

Though, as it is, I'm a little unsure of the formatting on the quote. I think it looks kinda funny where it is. Is that just me?

I would've put it on the actual WMG main page. Or, barring that, the Literature Sub-page.
