    Our prime minister, mr. Balkenende, also looks a lot like Harry Potter, at least they have the same hair dress. There are a lot of fun pictures with mr. Balkenende as Harry Potter. Here's one of them.
    Dutch seems very similar to German. Let me try and translate (I've never spoken a word of Dutch in my life):

    "Waar hebben ze die nou weer vandaan getoverd?" = "Where have they that now (again?) from (here/there/then?) *getoverd*?"

    That's as best I can do, don't have a clue what 'getoverd' means, but I can see it's the past participle of some verb.

    How near am I?

    Yep, almost correct. "Getoverd" is the past of "toveren", in German "toveren" would be "zaubern".

    My point is, I didn't like the whole idea of the story, so I won't bother read the book!

    And I love reading...
    none...

    I hate Harry Potter, mind you I have read the first two books, and watched both films, which both were pityful.

    Mmm. . . looks like there's a lot of love and hate going on here.

    Personally, I think the books are great. The movies don't do them justice, unfortunately.

    So for all you Harry-haters out there, do you hate Harry Potter because:
    1. there's no technology in the books?
    or
    2. you think you're too cool and on the edge to like anything that is popular?
    or
    3. you secretly wish that you received as much attention as the books and the title character, but sadly, you don't and are consequently jealous?

    No, I just find the whole damn concept extremely childish and stupid.

    Fascinating. . . out of curiosity, what part of the concept is "extremely childish and stupid?" Please don't say "the whole thing". I'm sure your intelligence is above that (as you, I'm sure, are no longer childish).

    Civix is the least childish person on the boards. Check his past posting history for details.

    Nice. It would be interesting to hear a more detailed argument from civix, however, so that I can see where he is coming from.
