Five ways in which people take Harry Potter way too seriously.Five ways in which people take Harry Potter way too seriously.

Unfortunately, humanity's ability to simply enjoy the Harry Potter books and get on with their lives ended the very second two computers were connected together. These days, the rule of fandom is anything worth doing, is worth overdoing, often to a terrifying degree.

Pretty funny writeup by the folks over at Giz but what manages to be funnier is Best Buy's quick response to it, which you can read right here. Not too shabby, Best Buy. Not too shabby at all.

Through a combination of terrible aim, superhuman jumping ability, and impossibly reliable parachutes, every combatant escaped even the most dire of situations without so much as the angle of his beret askew.

Thirteen year old swaps an iPod  with original Sony Walkman for a week.Thirteen year old swaps an iPod with original Sony Walkman for a week.

It took me three days to figure out that there was another side to the tape. That was not the only naive mistake that I made; I mistook the metal/normal switch on the Walkman for a genre-specific equaliser, but later I discovered that it was in fact used to switch between two different types of cassette.
