17 Internet Users Who Unraveled the Mysteries of Our World by Chance

Every day of our life is another reason to learn something new and expand our horizons, as there are so many secrets and surprises in our world. At the same time, access to the internet allows you to do it without leaving the comfort of your own home. You just have to be curious and attentive enough.

At Bright Side, we are convinced that social networks are the inexhaustible source of useful and interesting information, and a lot of discoveries are made by regular internet users.

8. The only person who really liked Harry Potter was Draco Malfoy.

During their first meeting at Madam Malkin’s shop, Draco was the only one who didn’t know that Harry was that famous boy he had heard so much about. He just saw a skinny boy in a Muggle’s old clothes, and immediately realized that they were not equal and that his father wouldn’t approve of such an acquaintance. Still, Draco began to talk to Harry and sympathized with him. He was the only one who saw just a simple boy in him, and he liked Harry.
