Harry Potter, Money, and Shit: What are the biggest plot holes and errors in Harry Potter? Hannah Yang 75.3k Views Here's one of my favorites, and it doesn't even involve magic... According to Hagrid, there are 17 Sickles to a Galleon. Sickles are made of silver, Galleons are made of gold. Simple enouglh But here's the thing about silver and gold in the Muggle economy: the ratio fluctuates. The price of gold and the price of silver are constantly changing. In fact, the gold-to- silver ratio is a tool many people use to determine when to buy these metals. Before 1900, the ratio averaged around 16:1, which seems to reasonably parallel wizarding standards. Throughout the twentieth century, though, the ratio has averaged around 45:1 So if you're a wizard in need of money, here's what you'd want to do. Wait for a time when the gold to silver ratio is really, really high. Take all of your gold Galleons, melt them down into lumps of pure gold, and sell them in the Muggle economy. Use that Iuggle money to buy as much pure silver as you can - you'll get an enormous bund of it, since the gold to silver ratio is so high. Finally, take that silver back to Gringotts and get it all minted into Sickles. If you want, you can even exchange them back to Galleons at the fixed 17:1 rate, and feel smug over the fact that you now have over twice as many Galleons as you started with Profit. It's a sweet, sweet thing iamtheaardvark: aboutreciprocation: …holy shit None of the characters ever figure this out because they stop taking math at age 11

Beer, Confused, and Drinking: a tripad...r.co.uk SHARE HOTOS REVIEWS If im honest the food is ok ' but only if u drink a couple of their flat pints first. l ordered the steak and i did get a tony piece with the lump of fat i got served I went to the bar to order a pint and never got served until i said 'please' i'm 28 years not 28 months Also my friends got ordered off of the table because the food was finished and they didnt have space for people only drinking when they needed the tables for food. We were ordered to stand at the bar only to be told we were clogging the place up and then told to leave. Im laughing typing this as i am so confused as to how the place was so busy with such terrible, angry staff I asked to speak to the manager who spoke and looked like she lived under a bridge Worst bar in Glasgow. But a cracking bit if u order the steak ul get a cracking bit of fat for the dug when u get home Helpful? 70 trípad..r.co.uk SHARE PHOTOS REVIEWS NEARBY Public Relations Manager at responded to this review Having spoken to our staff and watched CCTV we remember the day well Let's start with the "flat pints", our beer selection is pulled through the taps each morning and checked that it is "tap kwality". On the day you mentioned, we had no other complaints about the beer being flat, in fact, we had compliments. Let's move onto the steak. The steak you were served is the same 6oz sirloin that we use on our main meal “Trash Steak" which is one of our top sellers in The ratio of fat to meat is in favour of the meat and when you say "tony" we assume you mean "tiny". Size is a subjective thing and it is encouraging that you think something of a decent a tripad...r.co.uk SHARE PHOTOS REVIEWS NEARBY that you think something of a decent size points more towards the smaller end of the scale. Furthermore, on the day, your party advised that the food was good and you enjoyed it. Your next point regarding saying the word "please" is an interesting one. It's disappointing that you don't feel you need to be polite when requesting something. If you speak to most people, if not all in hospitality, then indeed the customer service industry, you will find that everyone likes to hear the words please" and "thank you". It's this revolutionary thing called manners and has been around for quite some time You should try it With regards to being ordered off the table, Steak Wednesday is one of our busiest days of the week and we have a very large turn over. We therefore want to make sure as many customers get to a tripad...r.co.uk SHARE HOTOS REVIEWS to make sure as many customers get to experience it as possible!Up until 9pm we like to allocate tables for food first and foremost so that people can enjoy their meal and we have the bar area available for drinkers. To recount what happened, you were not ordered to stand at the bar. It was explained that the table was needed for other customers after you had been dining on it for around 2 hours whichi what we feel it ample time to enjoy a meal. Whilst standing at the bar people in your party started to swear and make inappropriate comments about our staff It was also overheard that one of your party threatened violence towards our duty manager. Whilst we understand that there might be the odd comment from customers if something isn't up to scratch or something has affected service, this is not behaviour we will tolerate. Our staff are NOT here to be threatened or abused. They are here to tolerate. Our staff are NOT here to be threatened or abused. They are here to serve you, be spoken to politely and offer a good service As for you comment on our staff member's appearance Paddy, anyone seeing your comment or reading your review will be able to tell more about you as a person than our manager. Take care A long(ish) but satisfying read. When restaurants call out shitty customers.

Anaconda, Complex, and Doge: Damn, hope that isn't true nickcasey21 20min What if every sperm you ejaculate via masturbating ends up fusing together to face one mega sperm cell, and in the afterlife you must fight it to reach your ideal heaven? Reply + 920 Points 62 Comments SHARE the_lawyer_doge What kind of drugs do you...175 i rape_sheep it sound like a the binding of...32 coffee drinker Damn, mine will be bigger... On Average a guy releases 400 million (400,000,000) sperms/ ejaculation If a man masturbates every day of his 100 year life he would masturbate roughly 311046 times by his death if he starts at 15 years... By his death he would have released 400 million x 311046 sperms 1.244184 x 1014 sperms The length of the tail of a single sperm is 50 micrometers with a diameter of 1 micrometer that tapers down to 0.5 micrometer at the end Dimensions of sperm head are 3.1 x 5.1 x 1 micrometer. Using complex calculations of volume I calculated the volume of a single sperm to be 38.7 x 104-18 m3 (of which 59.17 % is the volume of the tail) Now, the total volume of all the sperms ejaculated in a lifetime is V 1.244 x 1014 x 38.7 x 10A-18 m3 V 48.15 x 104-4 m3 Assuming that the final form of the sperms is same as a single sperm, the volume of the tail will be 59.17 % of the total.. Hence the volume of the tail of the monster sperm is 28.5 x 10A-4 m3 Or 28.5 x 1014 micrometer3 As the sperm has grown proportionally the ratio of the thickness and length of the tail will remain the same... Reverse calculating the magnitude of enlargement I found that the sperm becomes 49920 times it's original dimensions to give the monster sperm Thus the length of the monster sperm is L-49920 x 55.1 micrometers Therefore, L 2570585 micrometer Or 2.7506 metres.... Or 9 feet (in retard units) Or 3 yards (more retard units) Hans, get ze spermenwerfer! Sorry for the long calculations... Here's a Spermtato. So I saw this.I wasted an hour on this shityes I study both math and biology
