Some questions about Harry Potter
If truth potions exist, why was Sirus Black convicted of the murders he didn’t commit? Wouldn’t interrogation under the effects of a truth potion reveal his innocence?
If Voldemort could curse the Defense Against the Dark Arts professorship, why didn’t he just also curse the position of headmaster? Why not curse the position of Auror? Why not use that ability to try and stop everyone who opposed him? Furthermore, if Dumbledore knew that the position was cursed, why didn’t he try to do anything about it?
If Voldemort is the result of being conceived under the effect of a love potion, wouldn’t that mean there are a lot more Voldemorts running around in the world? Or is date rape and loveless marriages just not a thing for wizards?
If the power to travel through time exists, why do they only use this power to let a 13 year old girl take extra classes? Why not use it to stop Voldemort? Why not use it to solve crimes by revisiting the scene when it took place?
How did Dumbledore not know about the Marauder’s Map and its users in general? Why didn’t Dumbledore do anything about James bullying the shit out of Snape? Shouldn’t he have learned by that point that bullying wizards never ends well? Is Dumbledore some kind of secret asshole?
Why are young wizards-in-training not allowed to use magic outside of school, even if they’re in a household where their parents use magic all the time? Wouldn’t it make sense for them to practice their skills rather than risk them getting sloppy and lazy over the summer?
Why is the age of majority in the wizarding world 17? Do wizards biologically mature faster than ordinary people?
Does Hogwarts offer classes outside of magic-related stuff? Is there a single wizard who understands basic algebra? What about political science? Is that offered? Do they study muggle literature, or only wizarding literature?
How did literally no one know that Harry and Voldemort had sister wands? Why didn’t Ollivander think to try and tell anyone about this?
Why would anyone agree to participate in the Triwizard Tournament if they didn’t know what the competitions were? What if the contests involved a gangbang?
If Nicholas Flamel invented the Philosopher’s stone and discovered the elixer of life, why wouldn’t he share that elixer with anyone? Wouldn’t that have saved countless lives?
Why is capital punishment forbidden in the wizarding world, but the Dementor’s Kiss, which is objectively worse in every conceivable way, accepted without question?
What was that black goo?
