One brave Potterhead said,
[My friend] is constantly astonished by how bad the Harry Potter world-building is so please drop your favorite nugget of completely nonsensical ‘Potter’ lore here…

1. The Lack Of Regulation
Polyjuice lets you turn into another person. Felix Felices gives you the uncanny ability to do the exact right thing. Veritaserum forces someone to only speak the truth. None of these potions are regulated in any way, because they're a bit hard to make right.— Neil S. (@Usoki) February 1, 2023
But not so hard that some 12-year-olds (two of whom just found out potions exist a year ago) can't pull it off in secret in a toilet— Ducker Trucker (@inveteratelurk1) February 2, 2023
2. The Lack Of Awareness
It's not lore but I could never get my head around the fact that they can't really decide if wizards are completely segregated from the rest of the world or are hidden among them. Like they live in london brownstones but have zero clue what cars are? What?— David, Post-Cartilage (@kidhaggard) February 1, 2023
3. The Lack Of Wizard Lasik
They can regrow all the bones in your arm in 24 hours but half the wizards have glasses bc there’s no wizard lasik— Katie MacBride (@msmacb) February 2, 2023
4. The Justice System
Also never think too hard about the British wizarding system of justice, where if you’re wrongly convicted there’s so recourse and you’re sent to an island where monsters suck out your soul— it's gita time (@xoxogossipgita) February 1, 2023
5. The House Elves
6. The Ghosts
