I guess I consider the time reading on the internet to be my "me" time. I check out a few sites every night after the kids go to bed. Mostly humor, photography and racing sites. Maybe I should divert some of that time to reading books.Originally posted by Shapley:

Fortunately, the wife is in Hawaii, so she doesn't notice.
Yes, I thought so too. I favor this alternative theory.Originally posted by Selma in Sandy Eggo:
It's true, we have had multiple appearances by dead people, throughout the series.
Didn't Dumbledore's picture appear in the Headmaster's office? With all the other dead headmasters? That, and the Phoenix's farewell song at the funeral, lead me to believe that he is really dead. Would Ffawkes deceive Harry? It seems un-Phoenixlike behavior.
Dumbledore has unswervingly trusted Snape, throughout the series and in the face of strong evidence that Snape is not a nice guy. But I have noticed that Dumbledore never says what he trusts Snape to do. I suspect that Dumbledore knew exactly what sort of person Snape is, and trusted him to act true to his nature and betray Dumbledore. It is possible that this treachery sets up a necessary plot twist that we won't find out about until Book 7 is published.
It just seems unlikely that someone as great as Dumbledore would a) have drunk the weakening potion without being more aware of it's capabilities than he let on, and more importantly, b)would be undone by Snape, when Voldemort was scared of him.Seems strange that Voldemort is mortally aftraid of Dumbledore and has been unable to kill him yet Snape can??
I simply think that Snape wanted to stop Harry performing an unforgiveable curse. Did anyone else notice that he never actually let Harry finish saying the curse? I bet it's because Harry has to be pure of heart/soul in order to kill Voldemort forever, or something like that. Also, notice how enraged Snape was when Harry called him a coward for not attacking - almost certainly because someone had ordered Snape not to attack: the question is, was it Dumbles or Voldo that issued the command...?Well, I've been thinking about it, and it occurs to me that the answer is right there in the book, and in book five as well. Professor Snape tells Harry, "No unforgivable spells from you - you're hearts not in it." In book five, I believe it is Bellatrix who tells him that unforgivable spells will not work unless your heart is in it.
In order for Snape to kill Dumbledore, he had to want to kill him. If his heart wasn't in it, it couldn't be done, unbreakable vow or not.
