If you need another reminder that time's flat circle will eventually roll over and crush you, it might as well be in the form of Harry Potter news.

Today marks the 15th anniversary of the public's introduction to Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint as the three precocious, magical children who found adventure, friendship and eventually love in the halls of Hogwarts.

Seriously, 15 years.



You probably have memories of this, don't you? Meaning you are even older than old.

Here's part of the original press release that preceded the filming of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone:

ATTENTION ALL MUGGLES! Director Chris Columbus and producer David Heyman have discovered their Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger from the thousands of children who cast their names into the hat to play the roles. Young actor Daniel Radcliffe will be the film's Harry, with newcomers Rupert Grint and Emma Watson taking on the roles of Ron and Hermione, Harry's best friends at Hogwarts, in Warner Bros. Pictures' upcoming adaptation of the first in the best-selling series of Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling.



The hashtag #15yearsofDanEmmaRupert has sprung up around the anniversary with people sharing their memories and their appreciation for the wizarding trio.

By the by, this is what they look like now:



And you're probably older. Much older.

Sorry about the reminder that death is hurtling towards you at lightning speed.

Artist herrimanjoe put together this infographic on the rising price of tuition at Hogwarts. He may have been The Chosen One, but could Harry Potter have gone to the wizarding school without all that priviledge? J.K. Rowling says yes...

The hashtag #NewHarryPotterBooks trended last night, and left a lot of people hopeful, bewildered, confused and then very, very angry.

It was all part of an @Midnight hashtag game meant to come up with humorous (fake) Harry Potter books.

But Harry Potter fans didn't take it as a joke. And they let everyone feel their anger.

For the third time, Simon Pegg flexes his nerd muscles to appear on The Tonight Show as a sloppy drunk Ron Weasley.

The schtick is the same as it ever was: poor Ron Weasley has turned to drink after the world only cares about the exploits of the Boy Who Lived.

His heart's at least in the right place as he shows up on late night to wish his best friends a happy 35th birthday.

Things even have taken a turn for the worse as it appears Hermione left the penniless ginger (again) for someone, probably a Slytherin, else.

Jimmy Fallon tries to both cheer up the soused wizard and protect his talk show audience from Weasley's desire to show his junk.

Humor ensues.

The last time Drunk Ron Weasley appeared on The Tonight Show, it went just about as well.
