When I used to think about Voldemort’s horcruxes I imagined a soul divided in equal portions residing in the different horcruxes and Voldemort himself. I realised that this can’t be true in The Half-Blood Prince Slughorn describes making a horcrux as splitting ones soul in two. This means that when Riddle made his Diary into a horcrux he split his soul in half and physically removed one half from his body and placed it in the diary. This means that he only had half of his soul left when he made his next horcrux, Marvolo’s ring. This half would have been split in half leaving only a quarter in Voldemort’s body. This goes on and on the amount of soul remaining in Voldemort halving each time he makes a horcrux until he had only 1/128 or 0.78125% left in his body. As shown in the graph above. So next time you wonder why Voldemort could have done some of things he did, remember how little human he had left in him. I don’t know about you but I think that this is crazy.
Come on guys, I didn’t do maths for 14 notes

Harry has more Voldemort in him than Voldemort
Diagon Alley won’t officially open until July 8, but the first photos of Universal’s new expansion of the Harry Potter Wizarding World show details that may as well put you inside the Leaky Cauldron. The theme park’s Diagon Alley features the pub — yep, there’s Butterbeer — Ollivander’s wand shop, Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlour, Weasleys’ Wizarding Wheezes and the Hogwarts Express. But the real highlight of the new addition is “Harry Potter and the Escape of Gringotts,” a ride featuring animatronic goblins, 3D projection systems, fog blasts, a deep dive into the bank and an encounter with Bill Weasley. The new ride sits under a fire-breathing Ukranian Ironbelly dragon used to guard the bank from the likes of Mr. Harry Potter himself. Take a look at the the first photos of Diagon Alley. [ X ]
This is a legitimate reason to withdraw my 401k early, right?
