Pottermore Sorting - a Slytherin

^ J.K. Rowling, via Pottermore, affirms what I've known since the first time I read Philosopher's Stone: I'm pretty sure I'd be in Slytherin ... Oh, yes, I definitely would be ... And, yes. I'm still bitter about the house cup.

comment How to recover photos from an iPhone 3G?
Thank you for this info -- I use a Dell laptop and to access my iPhone 5 I typically just go down through the OS (C:) drive to access the phone. It shows up as a plug in drive. I'll definitely check the Photo Gallery -- I'm using Windows 7. :)

Thanks very much! Yes, Tyson helped me to understand that what I have is actually a 3G, not a 1.0, and I'm going to edit the post to reflect that. I received it in May 2009, so a full month before the 3GS. I appreciate your advice and will check that number via Google. :) PS - so, do you mean my iPhone 5 should be called that: iPhone 5, without the 5.0?

@SachinShekhar -- If you go to the link I provided, each entry is annotated with which book the entry is from, or whether it's from Pottermore (pm). :)

@Tyson -- I think you're right; my mistake. I received it for my birthday at the end of May 2009. Assuming it's a 3G, any assistance on getting the photos off it would be very much appreciated. Should I edit this post to reflect 3G instead of 1.0? Thanks.

comment In Harry Potter, do witches and wizards use toilet paper, tampons, toothpaste, etc?
@DVK - Honeydukes sells something called "Toothflossing Stringmints", which Hermione says her parents (the dentists) would approve of. Do you think that would count as wizarding floss? The reference is in PoA.

Harry Potter is for all ages, which is what makes it extra special. It's not just for children, movies or books.

Minor canon correction; a bit of rephrasing to narrow the scope of the question.
