HIV microchipping in Papua?

I cant believe this news. The Papua's Government are nuts. How on earth do they come up with such stupid ideas of tattooing/microchipping people with HIV/AIDS?? It's against human right to do that. It also reminds me of what the Nazi did during WWII.

If some people wants to spread the virus to others, no microchip can stop them. They are just going to do that with and with out the chip.

Harry Potter

I was aware about the Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows leak for days before I decided to check it out. First, I read the (photographed) epilogue which I found too sugary, with no mentioned of professions, practically only about who has how many kids. So I thought it couldn't be the real book.

Then came Saturday, boy was I wrong! I had the real book all along. It took me about 18 hours to read through, longer than my usual 10 hours because I still read some other things in between, plus cooking, plus packing. It was an interesting read, full of actions, joy, laughter, and sadness. Until the epilogue, that is. She could have spent more pages on a better epilogue. So what, 20-30 more pages won't kill you if you already have been through more than 500 pages anyway. Such an anticlimax. It's like JK reminds me again that HP is a children's book, where a story has to end happily ever after. Gosh, I still couldn't believe she did that. I felt cheated in the end. So, my advice is: don't read the epilogue.

While I am glad my hunch on Snape & Dumbledore came true, JK didn't mention anything about how the wizarding world see both figures after the events. Was there any exoneration? I wonder what happen to the Dursleys, JK hinted that we would know more about them in this book, but she failed to let us know what Petunia did to Dudley (remember Dumbledore said something about it in the previous book?). I wish she said more about the transformation of some of the characters (e.g. Neville, Draco), what happened in Hogwarts while the trio were away and why didn't Harry/Ron/Hermione use their DA coins. Lots of questions to answer, leaving room for (a) spin-off(s).
