Why no other plan could have worked for Harry’s kidnapping.

March 29, 2020

I’m sick of hearing people asking why Harry had to be kidnapped via participating in  the Triwizard Tournament.  I thought about it long and hard..  This is some of my thoughts about why some others ideas weren’t have worked out

 

Theory 1-Nighttime Kidnapping (ie: his bed sheets were enchanted)

Let’s say any of the 4 other boys in the room -Seamus, Neville, Dean or Ron-needed to go to the bathroom at 4 or 5 in the morning.. wouldn’t they (especially if its Ron) notice something’s wrong with Harry’s bed? Regards of when it might have been (when Ron wasn’t speaking to him in 4th or after they started to speak again)-even if Ron wasn’t speaking to Harry at that time.. I think Ron would have tried raising the alarm if he noticed Harry wasn’t in bed.. and if (after using the bathroom) he checked the common room to see if Harry was there and he wasn’t.. I don’t know.. would he bother to check Harry’s trunk about Invisibility cloak at least?

 

Theory 2:-During the Day (Part 1)

we know that Moody’s lesson is right after lunch on Thursday and it goes straight to almost supper time. So let’s say Moody asked Harry to stay to talk w/ him a bit.. wouldn’t Hermione and Ron have wait outside the door for Harry? (since Harry + one of the others have waited for the 3rd person).. or even if Harry had told them to “go ahead” to supper.. they would have notice eventually Harry never showed up at supper or he wasn’t back in the common room by a 9.. especially if they checked the dorm. They would have definitely raised the alarm.

 

Theory 3- During the day Part 2:  Hogesmede’s 

Same thing goes for a Hogsemede visit..a bunch of students in the town 3 and above… someone would have notice.. and once again Ron and Hermione would have notice if he never showed up at Three Broomsticks or at supper.

If a modder isn’t around who do I ask for permission to have updated CC traits because I CAN’T DO IT MYSELF?

November 18, 2019

I want to know that if a modder isn’t around to create their traits and EA is a bit busy to care about simmers’ 3rd party content who do I ask permission from to update 3rd party CC traits because even with the video Zerbu’s mod constructor is WAY to complicated for me.  I mean for instance what would be the correct buffs for schiz, Aspger’s, ADHD?

 

Someone is claiming its illegal to ask other simmers to make CC traits of old traits from others with out the formers’ permission but if they aren’t around  to ask permission FROM  what am I going to do to GET new versions of these traits unless someone would take pity on me and make versions for me and give credit to the former creators.

 

I really home TMN sees the thread AND this post and helpful …

Enough isn’t Enough

January 13, 2018

I was reading the Toronto Star  today this article: Enough is Enough  and I was really ticked off by the FEMALE columnist’s attitude towards the women who have stepped forward and mentioned that men like Harvey Weienstien, Kevin Spacey, Albert Schultz among other men whom basically treated women like an object or property they owned-  who says that those women should “get over” with being touched/felt/etc and get on with their work.  But these men presumably have a mix of the 50’s and 60s ideas. (The 60s idea is that women go to college to get an MRS degree while the 50s idea is that women should be “barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen”).

 

The PBS News hour on Thursday night, economists were discussing a study  an undergraduate  has done about words used to describe young women on the economist job market vs. young men.  The words for women were “breast”, “whore”  and “hot”  “bitch” among others like pregnant, dating, marry/marrying, rape/dating,  “attractive”  not one thing about how good their mind is or their ability to do the work while men were describe with words like  “empirical” “Data” “Monetary”  and “fiscal”.

 

We need to do two things 1)teach boys from a young age the oppiste sex aren’t objects to be their toys but are fellow human beings  2)We also need to teach girls that they should speak out if someone even a RELATIVE touches them in a way that is “wrong”.

Jerks suggest that people with food allergies never have a social life

December 14, 2017

Why do jerks always suggest people w/  food allergies just should never go out for a nice meal and make all their meals at home?  What if the allergic person is on a trip wether it’s a business trip or vacation? Like if you have a gluten issue don’t eat at Cinderella’s Castle Royal Table since it has a a small kitchen. But you can eat at Tony’s.  A person with an allergy if they’re on a business or vacation trip doesn’t have the option of making their own food not unless they buy a suite with a kitchen.  Also allergic people, like everyone else, do deserve a social life with their friends.
