For Some Quidditch Players, The Magic Wears Off As Injury Risks Grow Clearer.

Did you know Quidditch is being actually played in the real world? Well, played sans the flying brooms, but including all the injuries…


U.S. Quidditch is the governing body for the sport.

According to the official rules, the Snitch is, "… a runner dressed in yellow with a velcro tail attached to their shorts."

Quaffles are volleyballs (of course) and Bludgers are dodgeballs. Players run about the field holding a length of plastic pipe between their legs for the broomstick.

Rusted Neuron – an Intentional Community

Rusted Neuron is an invitation-only 'Intentional Community'. It is not intended to represent a specific focus, although the people you find here are generally intelligent, creative, and witty. Content and conduct rules are set by the community, not by fiat. The one thing we will not tolerate here is intolerance; you can agree to disagree, but you must treat others with respect.

Currently the membership limit is 100 people and there are plenty of slots available. The goal is to try to replicate real-world community interaction and norms enforcement online. Keeping it small is intended to create a village atmosphere by staying well under Dunbar's Number.
