  1. Emma Watson Delivers A Feminist Rallying Cry To The United Nations

    100 points to Gryffindor.

    Forgive the mediocre video quality, and don't be scared off by the twelve minute time-stamp. This is one of the most eloquent speeches on gender equality I've ever heard.

    This puts my "cat unicorn" to shame, not gonna lie.

    With all this recent talk of patronuses (patroni? patronees?) lately, it only stands to reason that someone would think to ask the Harry Potter creator about what her own happy thoughts would eventually conjure.
