A woman can move a lot faster with her skirt up than a man can with his pants down.
^ Don't the Aurors and Death Eaters fly around all the time in their mist form without brooms?
Honestly we've actually heard the instructions for teleporting. It's pretty much "spin around and concentrate really hard".
I can't recall any mentions of wands at all during that scene.
Suffering is a fact of life. You survive if you find a reason to endure it.
Yes but the context of the conversation moved to Book Voldemort for a moment so I wanted to clarify.

Transient just likes to do that.
Why he keeps picking up ridiculous arguments and then try to defend them, I will never know.
To add a point to Siriel's comment:
I'm almost certain that Apparating did NOT require a wand in the books, neither during training nor when DD side-along'd Harry. I even remember being kind of surprised by it, since it seemed like powerful magic to get for "free."
Harry performs some fairly massive magic without a wand (vanishing the glass separating the snake-pit at the zoo, for example), and Tom Riddle does off-screen and on-screen as a child as well (Legilimency and mind-rape tries that fail against Dumbledore on-page and those same things against students and administration at his pre-Hogwarts "school" as well. Dumbledore has a fair number of feats, and it's expressly mentioned early-on in the books that powerful wizards just don't need wands to do many things.
