Don't Read This: Harry Potter Spoilers!

As we all know, the final book of Harry Potter series "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" is coming out this Saturday, and there have been wild speculations about the ending by fans throughout the world. However, those speculations are all over the place, and it makes everything so hard to find. So, to put all of them in one place, I present to you: the 13 most interesting "spoilers" out there about Harry Potter!

Warning: If you haven't read the previous six books and intend to read them in the future, then this really is NOT for you. If you have read the previous six books, then it's fine. I will hide the following list so that nobody would read it by accident. To read it, just click on the link below.

Show the spoilers!
  1. Snape kills Dumbledore
  3. Hermione is a DUDE
  4. Bush declares war on Hogwarts!
  5. Trinity dies.
  6. Snape dies
  7. Syrius Black dies. Oh wait....that's what happened in the movie.
  8. Everyone dies.
  9. The series ends.
  10. Harry Potter almost dies at the end, but realizes that the whole story was a bad dream. He wakes up back in the house of the horrible family, father banging on the closet door.
  11. 299 died
  12. Gollum falls into fires of Mordor with the ring.
  13. Darth Vader is Harry's father.

Hah, I know some of them are rather lame, but many did crack me up. :)

By the way, this is a gentle warning to all Harry Potter fans: if you want to avoid spoilers, please avoid all form of human contacts from the time you get the book until you finish the last page. Spoilers are going to be all over the place, in your email, comment in every unrelated blog article, friends' conversations, phone calls, online chat etc. There are just way too many sadistic people who enjoy seeing people agonise over spoilers. When the last book came out, someone witnessed a crazy guy who went into the bookstore lines, read the last few pages, and yelled the ending. Another person heard people yelling out the window when he was in the bookstore's parking lot. Crazee people.

For me, the sixth book got spoiled last time because I overheard people commiserating with each other over the event. Arrgh. This Saturday I am going to join the line, cover up my ear, get the book quickly, go offline, ignore SMS and avoid friends. Nobody's going to spoil it this time.
