18 Things That Don't Quite Make Sense In "Harry Potter"

If you haven’t been living under a rock for the past few decades, then you might have heard of a lil’ ol’ franchise called Harry Potter. Heck, you might even be a fan!

Harry Potter dazzled us with the dope-ass wizarding world that we all wanted — and still want — to be a part of.

But, for as many fantasies that Harry Potter inspired, it also left us with a lot of questions that went answered.

Recently, Reddit user r/GreendayG11 asked the Potterheads of Reddit, “What just doesn’t make sense about the Harry Potter universe?” These responses will have you scratching the ol’ noggin.
