Actually, both subject and object can also be pronouns or numerals. And in special cases, even verbal infinitives (think of a sentence like "'To be' is a verb uttered by Hamlet together with 'not to be'.").

I was in your camp at one time. I am a conservative Christian and at my church Harry Potter is automatically "not done". But the thing is, when you ask them, no one has read a Harry Potter book or seen one of the movies. So I decided to watch a movie and I thought it was great fun! Thoroughly enjoyed it! No different from any other fantasy movie. Just sayin. Didn't get that question correct though.

I am sorry for you all for not giving the books a chance. I think it's one of the greatest series ever written for children. What in the world is wrong with teaching a child that it's not who you were born that matters, but the choices you make in life that count? I am also a Christian, and I saw nothing in the books that was offensive to my beliefs, just fantasy such as Grimm's Fairy Tales or The Wizard of Oz, only better. Good triumphs over evil in the end.

I started reading one of the books. Was bored immediately. Sat through I think seven of the awful movies. All but the last one which I vowed to near see. I consider this giving them a chance. They're better than Twilight. Still not very good.

I have no problem with you who have read the books and didn't find them to your taste. I have no problem with those who choose not to read them for whatever reason. I just don't understand those who choose not to read them, yet feel the need to criticize them. (And I think the books are way better than the movies.)

I read enough to know that I didn't care for them. That didn't take long. It's not about the narrative as woven through 7 overlong books, it's about the quality of the writing which you can pick up on very quickly. You could read a whole book and not realize you didn't like the story until you got to the last page; but you can pick up a book and figure out you don't like the writing style by scanning a single paragraph.

I saw 7/8 of the movies, didn't like any of them, I have no trouble believing that the books were better. But most of my specific criticisms about story/character/plot structure are based on the films.

Yeah, it's unfair to include questions that can only be answered by residents of a specific country. The two UK questions (wives of Henry VIII and the presidents) at least are general knowledge.

Check out Youtube for Secretariat winning the 1973 Belmont Stakes. One of the most incredible sporting events of the 20th Century. If you added a crippled goat to the race, the goat would've finished closer to the 2nd-place horse than the 2nd-place horse finished to Secretariat. Simply jaw-dropping.
