Spoiler Alert

I was talking to an eleven year old this morning about the release of Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince. She explained that she'd already seen it, even though she hasn't read the books -- she'd rather watch a film than read the original source material.

She then told me that somebody important dies in the film.

I responded, "Yeah, that's a rather pivotal point."

"What?"

"It's rather pivotal."

"It's not Pivotal -- it's Dumbledore!"
