When I was a kid, I had an argument with another kid named Christian about whether or not the first Harry Potter book described the crest as having an eagle or a raven in it when Harry first opens the mail from Hogwarts. Having an incredibly sticky memory for this kind of stuff, I remembered it because it clearly stood out to me as weird. Eventually we bet 200 dollars on whether or not that was true (A ludicrous amount, considering that we were 8), and then each went home to check. My mom was already pre-emptively assuming that I was wrong, and saying how I'd have to go to school and tell him that it was just a joke and I didn't really mean it, but guess what, I was fucking right
. In the Danish translation, it clearly fucking states that it's an eagle. I dunno about the English one, because I didn't know English then and I haven't felt a need to re-read the books before the 6th, which are the ones I read in Danish, but it didn't matter. Suck on that mom, and suck on that Christian.
I never did get my 200 dollars.
