“In the Finder, make sure the Path Bar is visible (View > Show Path Bar). The current path is then displayed at the bottom of each Finder window. As with any other folder icon in the Finder, Command-double-clicking on any icon in the Path Bar will open a new window to that folder.”
Oh this is super useful. I must have turned off my Path Bar in favor of the screen real estate it takes up, assuming it didn’t do anything. Normal double clicking the icons moves you to that directory in the same folder, so you can easily go ‘Up’ from where you are currently. I’ve never known how to to go Up in Finder until just now :)
(In Emacs dired-mode, going up is easier! Just press ^ :D (don’t press the smiley face, just make a smiley face after you do it) )
….You realize, of course, that Hermione Granger lit a teacher on fire when she was eleven, and kept a person alive in a jar for a year when she was fourteen, and studies dark and forbidden magics for kicks, and is one of the brightest and strongest witches of her era. If she came at me, even wandless, I would aparate to Neptune to get away from her.
Hermione Granger also:
punched Draco Malfoy in the nose for being an idiot
purposefully performed a confundus charm on whatshsface WHILE HE WAS FLYING just so Ron would win (omfg that is so fucking dangerous)
literally pulled a fucking Bourne Identity on her parents and managed to set them up in fucking Australia (jesus christ she literally made it so that she NEVER EXISTED wtf that’s so fucking 007)
Convinced the Ministry of Magic to give her an incredibly dangerous and volatile device that allowed her to ALTER TIMELINES COMPLETELY (just because she was so smart, literally, that is the reason, her “potential”)
Has enough basic survival skills and badass magic to literally disappear to the middle of nowhere and flourish AND figure out Voldemort’s plot with Harry
Hermione also figures out not only what Voldemort’s plan is, but generally how to beat it, WAY BEFORE VOLDEMORT EVER DOES. Why? because she is just that much smarter and better at magic than everybody else
in conclusion: Voldemort wishes he could be as awesome as Hermione, that’s why he wants to kill her so bad.
Can we rehave this series with hermione as the protagonist.
Hermione Granger and “That Time I Used the Power of Research and Deductive Reasoning to Make Sure Harry Didn’t Die”
Hermione Granger and “That time I figured shit out and literally ended up petrified for the cause and it took my friends weeks to figure out that I had the research on me”
Hermione Granger and “That Time I Was a Time Lord”
Hermione Granger and “That Time I Realized I was Hot and Smart and Saved Harry’s Ass with Research. Again. All the Time. Really, He Would Have Died Without Me.”
Hermione Granger and “That time Harry was too emo to actually do shit so I did shit in his name because I am the power behind the throne clearly also PS fought evil deatheaters and won”
Hermione Granger and “That Time I told Harry about the Dangers of Copying off Somebody’s else’s work that wasn’t mine and OH LOOK I WAS RIGHT”
Hermione Granger and “That Time I let Harry Decide Where to Go and What To do and we ended up wandering the forests of dean for like 5 months before saving his ass at Hogwarts”
When you put it that way, Hermione is pretty much super awesome. And a lot of her actions were deliberate, with full knowledge of the consequences; meanwhile Ron and Harry just stumbled into their actions blindly more often than not. :D
No matter how good you are at something (let’s use Ultimate for this example), if you’re having a bad game, it won’t matter how much you know you’re good at it (or at least better than you are that game) or how much you tell yourself you’re good at it, it still won’t pull you out of your rut.
Well, at least it’s that way for me.
Yeah, I also have a really bad habit of getting stuck in my own head when I’ve made a few bad plays. I remember recently, in a silly Spring league game, having a horrible day because I messed up a few throws. I’m actually still apprehensive about my throws (oh god my flick hucks) a month or two later, and I’m supposed to be a D-line handler! Granted, I screwed ‘em up prettttty badly, but still, the internal punishment to external actions ratio is wacked out.
It reminds me of being ‘on tilt,’ a phrase that people use in League of Legends when they’ve made one or two mistakes early game and inexplicably continue making bad decisions the rest of the game that aren’t in line with their normal playing. For LoL anyway, I just stop playing when I go on tilt, but in Ultimate that’s not always an option, especially in an extended tournament when everyone is tired.
I still have to figure out how to get out of my own head in situations like that. =/
