The Harry Potter global phenomenon - do you class it as a part of your life?
Harry Potter has since became such an a global phenomenon that it’s hard to see the full scope what it accomplished over the years. J.K. Rowling was an unknown single mom when she first got the idea for her story while stuck on a train; the small UK children’s press that ultimately took a chance on it undoubtedly couldn’t have predicted that it would have a measurable effect on everything it touched.

Do you think Fleur Delacour should've won against Harry Potter in the Triwizard Tournament?
In the 1st task we know Dragons are incredibly resistant to make and in the first task Fleur Delacour did amazingly, so the fact that she was able to single-handedly enchant one into sleep was very impressive indeed.

Fan Theory: Dumbledore used a time turner to arrive at Harry's trial in Order Of The Phoenix
Harry was put on trial at the start of the book and film for discharging his Patronus to defeat a Dementor – but did Dumbledore travel back in time to get the hearing?

When the trial begins, Dumbledore shows up unannounced to defend Harry to the surprise of Cornelius Fudge (and Harry alike). Fudge makes a remark that they had changed the time and moved the location of the trial, to which Dumbledore says (not verbatim, mind you) that he had ‘by some luck arrived at the Ministry three hours early’.

What One Object from The Wizarding World Would You Bring to the Muggle World?
Hey Wizarding Community.
 
I hope we're all coping as best as we can, and staying as safe as possible.
 
I got myself thinking about magical objects and inventions from the Wizarding World. And I wondered what object you would bring over from the Wizarding World to use in the Muggle World. It could be anything ever mentioned in the Wizarding World (yes, even a wand!).

Winky, dear old Winky; Crouch's House elf. Important as she is, especially with Crouch Senior to the dark mark cast at the Quidditch Cup in The Goblet of Fire film, plus the whole 'drunk winky' fiasco.

Did Neville have a memory charm placed on him?
Neville is portrayed as a very forgetful child. He's always losing things and forgetting the password to the Gryffindor common room. When we first meet Neville it's hard to imagine why the Sorting Hat put him into Gryffindor in the first place.

Time Turners
I'm not sure if the rest of the world has this, but in the UK the clocks change twice a year. They went back today. 
 
I had a random thought: What would happen if someone used a time turner at the exact moment the clocks turned back? And I mean just one turn, not the three like Hermione did. Would they go back two hours or just one with the rest of the world? Would it be the same if clocks went forwards? Would they be catching up two hours rather than one? 
 
It makes me want to know more of the mechanics and science behind time turners, but I thought it would be an interesting set of questions to share with the forum.

What annoyed you most about the Harry Potter films?
Me personally, it's the fact that they didn't use a single director for the entire series was perhaps the most annoying part of it for me. Alfonso Cuarón - Got it in my eyes.

      Keep an eye on your family just like Mrs. Weasley.   Sometimes fiction inspires reality—such is the case here with Bryn Dole's Weasley Family clock replica. It uses a Raspberry Pi to replicate the general functionality, going as far as to update in real-time based on your family's actual location data. If you aren't familiar with the Harry Potter franchise, the clock is found in the home of the Weasley family. Each section of the clock represents a location rather than a point in time. There is a hand for each member of the family which moves magically into position based on where they are at a given moment. If you aren't sure where they are, you can find out in a glance using the clock. (Image credit: Bryn Dole)   In this project, the location information is gathered and processed using an application called Life 360. This data determines where each individual hand should dial in on the clock. Dole decided to use a grandfather clock found in a thrift store, fitted with a poster of the original clock artwork from the movie.   The clock face is divided into eight sections: Home, Work, School, Garden, Lost, In Transit, Quidditch, and Mortal Peril. Most of these are self-explanatory, with the two most puzzling options being Quidditch and Mortal Peril. Quidditch is used to represent bicycling. It's triggered when the individual is found travelling slower than a car but faster than a running pace. Mortal Peril represents a person travelling faster than 75 mph (ca. 121 km/h).     Dole was kind enough to share plenty of details about the project and documented the complete creation process. If you want to replicate this project for yourself, that's definitely an option. Check out all the notes and source code on GitHub to get started. Be sure to follow Bryn Dole on his official website for more cool projects.    News Source: Bryn Dole + Tom's Hardware
