Voldemort and Michael Jackson

I've been re-reading the Harry Potter books and have come to a startling conclusion: Voldemort and Michael Jackson have a lot in common.

- both had troubled childhood marked by an absence of normal parenting.
- both were identified as "special" at a young age.
- both sought immortality, and the pursuit thereof turned their skin pale and eliminated their noses.

[too soon? nah.]

I'm currently re-reading the books, as well.

And...yes, what an odd parallel.
