Similarities to Harry Potter?

I've kinda noticed there's a lot. :O Here's only the ones I've noticed:

-Boy finds out he has awesome powers and so goes to a place where he can learn how to use them. (Raz and Harry, WR and Hogwarts)
-Angry, lanky redheaded boy from poor family who would probably attack everyone he hates if he could.(Ron and Bobby. I always got the feeling that Bobby and Raz would become friends if they'd had more time together.)
-Loveable loser-type who gets picked on. (Dogen and Neville)
-Eccentric but brilliant loveable old coot who mentors main character.(Ford and Dumbledore)
-Smart but very eccentric girl.(Chloe and Luna)
-Extremely paranoid "teacher" who isn't actually a teacher.(Boyd and Moody)
-Old building with towers set on the edge of a lake. (Thorney Towers and Hogwarts)
-Monster in lake.(Linda and Giant Squid)
-Teacher has underground classroom.(Sasha and Snape)
-Teacher has surname that connects to something large, monstrous and to do with him. (Sasha and Lupin, MegaCensor and Werewolf)
-Character that drones on and on and on and on... (Vernon and Prof. Binns)
-Important character thrown from high tower.(Loboto and Dumbledore)
-Fat, toadlike character who belittles the main character.(Jasper and Umbridge)
-Character who uses the muscle of others to get back at people.(Maloof and Draco)
-Main character is actually a bit of a jerk, but a decent jerk.(Raz and Harry)
-Guardian(s) of main character who didn't want him to go to place of learning.(Raz' Dad and Uncle Vernon)

Any others that I might have missed?

...you have too much time.

I never noticed it, but I'm not that big of a Harry Potter fan anyway.

Oh hush. 8D

I'm not a massive fan either, to be honest. I just tend to notice these things. XD

Pfft, if I wanted to be Japanese I'd start smoking and hating foreigners.

In hell. I'm happy as ever being single, nobody to tell me I don't pay attention to them, nobody to spend my monies on but me, nobody telling me they want to get knocked up.

I'm glad you are above peer pressure, young man. Now go and make a difference and star in your very own public service announcement!

You can have sex with anyone you want, even if they don't want to! Just remember to wear a condom!

That's misleading to today's youth, you can't get away with wearing that condom just anywhere...

Like in a Church, remember Al Sharpton wants you to knock up your girlfriend so that he may build an army of bastard children to do his bidding.

MATCHING FUNDS!!

Did you intend for Al Sharpton to point at Penn & Teller? That actually worked out quite nicely.

That reminds me of something: how does Thing (Addams Family) do it?

Gomez wants to know the very same thing.


I'm done putting links in my signature because every time I do it just links to some old crap I've long since stopped updating.

This is off-topic but since the thread's already derailed I feel less bad.
