    The books were pretty good up to number 5. They went downhill after that.

    The movies were meh.

    I wonder if the Ministry of Magic was either Pro-Wand or Pro-Wand Control.

    Um, hon... you are familiar with the male half of Homo Sapiens, right?

    Regardless of our age, most of us will "drool" over any attractive female substantially beyond puberty.

    Now, bear in mind, "drool over" is NOT necessarily the same as "would bang her given the chance". But we definitely like to look. I'm fairly sure it is instinctive, since it is darn near universal.
