23 Things You Didn’t Think About When You Said You Want To Live In The Harry Potter Universe

22. Not exactly horrifying, or even of any real consequence, but one thing that constantly bothers me is the complete disregard for Muggle “technology” that has improved.
• They still use a steam engine train. Perhaps it runs on magic, but there has to be some unused First Great Western coach that they can jerry rig to run on magic.

• Gas lamps and candles. They’re lighting an entire castle with hundreds of thousands — if not millions — of candles and gas lamps. Even in the time Harry Potter was set, incandescent light bulbs existed. Don’t get me started on the fact that their wands can produce an LED-type light that “floods” a room with light. But no. Candles.

• This is the one that bothers me the most: QUILLS. They’re constantly buying bottles of ink, snapping their quills, and spilling ink all over their parchment (OH YEAH. PARCHMENT SCROLLS.) while Bic creates a perfectly good ball-point for 50p.

23. I don’t want to live in a world where a full grown man can’t defeat a one-year-old infant. Why on earth didn’t Voldemort just walk over and oh, I don’t know, push him out the window? TC mark
