The Golden Snitch, the third type of Quidditch ball, replaced the Snidget in matches. The Snidget is a small golden/yellow bird that was known for its quick movements and was difficult to catch. Snidgets were kept in the pitch by wizards posted around the boundary with repelling spells. Since Snidgets were often crushed when caught by the seeker, the species began going extinct and was replaced by the metal Snitch. Not only can Snitches be used multiple times, but they are enchanted to stay in the pitch boundaries.

I just turned 18 and my first tattoo is going to be the Harry Potter stars on my wrists. My mom and boyfriend occasionally make fun of me (jokingly, of course). But neither of them realize what Harry and JK Rowling mean to me. I had the first book on my shelf for a while, but I could never get past the first chapter. Then one day, my parents had to go out, so a family friend watched my brother and I. He brought over the first three movies (as they were the only ones released at that point). We watched the first one and most of the second, and after that, I was hooked. Since 3rd grade, Harry has gotten me through everything. My parents divorce, depression, break ups, bad grades, family drama, friendship related drama. Everything. When I thought I'd be better off dead, nope, just read Harry Potter and I felt better. People don't realize what Harry means to me, what he's been for me. Without him, I don't know if I'd be who I am today. Harry saved the Wizarding World and he saved this poor ol' Muggle too.

Why doesn't Voldemort have a nose? Personally I think it is because it makes him look more snake like. Also because he seems like a person who would be vain enough to be addicted to plastic surgery, and we all know that doesn't mix well with pretty faces. This explanation works well too though.

This is amazing. You can actually look at Diagon Alley as seen in the movie using Google Street view in the Warner Bros. studio in London. The address is Diagon Alley at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London, Studio Tour Drive, Leavesden. You can go to this web site and click the Google Maps link or just type the address into Google Maps yourself. So awesome.
