This image seems fitting.
I'm going to ask to have this thread sent off to the retirement home in a little bit.

Quote from: Chishio Kunrin on 2013 Jun 12, 08:25:28Okay, everyone, listen up and read this here and now because I'm getting tired of seeing this happen.
The lesson for you all today is: JK Rowling did not come up with mandrakes. They do not originate from Harry Potter.
The moment that people see a mandrake, they're all "Harry Potter reference! XD"
And I'm just sitting here like "Are you bucking serious? "
I mean, I suppose everything else in Harry Potter is completely original ideas by JK Rowling, right?
Werewolves? Unicorns? Centaurs? Hippogriffs? Merpeople? Giant three-headed dogs? Giant spider monsters? Dragons? Trolls? Giants? Phoenixes?
I can let it slide for things like
1. The basilisk. I only knew that basilisks are already-established mythological creatures because of D&D.
2. Hippogriffs, kind of. Then again, I first heard of hippogriffs from D&D, as well.
3. Boggarts. Didn't know they're established myths until I looked it up.
True, there are some things that she did apparently come up with herself, like the thestrals. But still, why assume that something is an original idea from her and not inspired by myths and folklore?
The first place I heard of mandrakes was from Harry Potter. Did I assume that JK Rowling made it up? No. No, I actually didn't. Because I could tell that she drew a ton of inspiration from mythology and folklore.
I mean, this isn't like Full Metal Alchemist where myth references are so obscure that you don't even realize it's a myth reference. Example: Philosopher's stone and homunculus, as well as the origin of Von Hohenheim's name. References to alchemy myths.
Unlike that situation, with Harry Potter, everybody knows about unicorns, werewolves, dragons, blablablablablablah.

1. What colors we were allowed to have in shirts, pants, shorts, and skirts.
2. Always tuck your shirt in and wear a belt. Your belt must be brown or black and must be plain.
3. Shirts must be plain. The largest that an image can be is the size of a quarter coin. This goes for jackets, as well.
4. Shirts must have a collar.
5. Shorts/skirts cannot end more than 3 inches above the knees.
6. No unnatural hair colors because they can be distracting. For African Americans, this included blonde.
7. No open-toe shoes. Pretty much no shoes that people can see your toes in, like sandles and flipflops.
8. No excessive jewelry.
9. No jeans. Nope. You can't wear jeans. Not even jean shorts.
10. Pants can't have more than the normal amount of pockets, so no cargo pants/shorts.
11. Tanktop straps can't be less than two-fingers wide. They do this to avoid spaghetti strap shirts being worn.
I can't remember their policy on piercings, but I'm pretty sure they don't accept visible piercings anywhere other than your ears.
Like I said before, my high school was a lot more lax about dress-code.
Of course, there were people who didn't like the rule of no visible piercings anywhere other than the ears.
There were also people who didn't like that we couldn't wear hats unless it was less than 40 degrees out. It especially sucked for the freshman guys who got tee'd because the seniors shaved their heads, and they usually scheduled it near winter.
