Look, I made a gif of this most awesome wizard at the Leaky Cauldron!
DUDE IS READING ‘A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME’ BY STEPHEN HAWKING
I NEVER REALIZED
are you serious
I always assumed wizards just ignored science, because the fact that “magic” exists, can explain anything. But there are MuggleBorn wizards, ones who, until they were eleven, lived in the real world and learned science and things. Did they all just abandon that normal, muggle knowledge, like Harry did? It’s always been there, itching in the back of my mind.
FOUR FOR YOU SCIENCE WIZARD
YOU GO SCIENCE WIZARD
can we point out that he’s doing wandless magic too

molly fuckin weasley couldnt fuckin do that
who are you
my guess is an eccentric avoiding being a hero, or the next wizarding villain waiting to happen
Dude, this is the most awesome, WHO IS THIS GUY? And what is he saying? One, two? Buckle my shoe?
Also, I feel like this Tumblr thread would be an excellent time to point out the existence of an 87-chapter, 500,000-word (and counting!) fanfic titled "Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality". It’s on my to-read list right after I finish the original series and has the following summary:
Petunia married a biochemist, and Harry grew up reading science and science fiction. Then came the Hogwarts letter, revealing a world of intriguing new possibilities to exploit. And new friends, like Hermione, and Professor McGonagall, and Professor Quirrell…
So, the-fandoms-are-cool, not only does such a recasting of the story exist, but none other than Harry Potter is that effectively muggle-born wizard that grew up a science geek. You’re welcome.
