HPN Snarkive ~ Cavalcade of Captions
[Image: HPNTikiBar-1.jpg]

Snarkive
The Harry Potter Photo Caption Contest
"A Cavalcade of Snark"

This archive is a work-in-progress. Most of these pictures were taken from cached copies on Google, so the quality isn't always perfect. If anyone has a better version, send it to me or to Olwen, or simply post it in this thread and we will add it to the gallery asap. Also, I want you all to know what a pleasure it is to read all the witty captions, and look how many winners there have been over the years going back to 2007! Bravo, HPN!

RE: HPN Snarkive ~ Cavalcade of Captions
Thanks for saving all the winning captions, SIP and Olwen! There really are some priceless little gems there... I've had a great time re-reading them all Big Grin
Speaking of captions; wouldn't it be fun with a new contest? Wink

Lo que puede el sentimiento no lo ha podido el saber, 

ni el más claro proceder, ni el más ancho pensamiento 

Todo lo cambia el momento cual mago condescendiente 

nos aleja dulcemente de rencores y violencias 

Solo el amor con su ciencia nos vuelve tan inocentes

Star RE: HPN Snarkive ~ Cavalcade of Captions
We're getting ready for summer vacation in my school so things are a little hectic until mid June. But, sharpen your wits and a new era of Caption Contests will be up and running before you know it!

I actually have all these captions on Photobucket. If anyone wants his or her banner/tiki bar, please let me know.

Thanks, Malevolent_Bat. This was my baby back in the days of the old HPN. There were certainly a lot of great captions, both the winners and the runners up which, unfortunately, were lost.

Oh no! Sad I didn't realize the runners up were lost! Are you sure Ianus didn't find them somewhere?

Unfortunately, they were on my laptop right up until a month before HPN crashed. I deleted them to make space on the drive. :/

Olwen: Don't you hate technology sometimes? When my daughter graduated last year I wanted to take lots of pictures, so I cleared my camera. I had downloaded all the other pics into my desktop computer anyway - so no problem, right?

About a month later the compressor went out on that computer, and a tech guy told us it wasn't worth fixing.

So I have a hard drive with most of my pics trapped on it sitting here in a box, waiting for me to pay someone to shift them over to an external hard drive or whatever. I had many of them saved to disc though, and it's possible some of the runner's up pics were on there too because I saved some of them. I'll try to dig through my scattered archives.

RE: HPN Snarkive ~ Cavalcade of Captions
I remember a quote from Robin Williams (after he's played his share of sci-fi films like The Bicentennial Man), saying something about Technology is truly marvalous these days, you can store an enourmous load of data on a chip no larger than your fingernail... and yet it takes only one magnet to ruin it all.

Y'all have my deepest sympaphy.

I've been translationg a fic to Engligh for a long time, one night I forgot the time, and the universitiy's computer room cut the power. I nearly cried. 3000+ words lost. I went back to my dorm and wrote it all out by hand before I totally forgot. I was very careful to save multiple copies on different places after that.



« L'homme n'est qu'un roseau, le plus faible de la nature, mais c'est un roseau *pensant*. Il ne faut pas que l'univers entier s'arme pour l'écraser; une vapeur, une goutte d'eau suffit pour le tuer. Mais quand l'univers l'écraserait, l'homme serait encore plus noble que ce qui le tue, parce qu'il sait qu'il meurt et l'avantage que l'univers a sur lui; l'univers n'en sait rien. »

( “Man is but a reed, the most feeble thing in nature; but he is a *thinking* reed. The entire universe need not arm itself to crush him: a vapour, a drop of water suffices to kill him. But, if the universe were to crush him, man would still be more noble than that which killed him, because he knows that he dies and the advantage which the universe has over him; the universe knows nothing of this.” )

— Blaise Pascal



“如果你此生有幸,可以得到他的一个承诺。”

( “If you are truly blessed in this life, you might get a promise out of him.” )

— Caption on a Severus Snape splash-page from MovieView magazine, issue #412
