        They talk about this in the Barry Trotter books. Barry visits one of the "Muddle" liaison offices and one of the workers there tells him how much paperwork it is dealing with shit that gets teleported randomly. A toothpick or whatever isn't a huge deal, but a car is - especially if someone's driving the car when it happens.
        It becomes a running joke through the book, someone conjures a calculator and some kid in China gets yelled at for losing his calculator again.

          Well you're assuming your spell doen't take pathogens directly on and inside the fruits with them (which isn't how teleportation works based on its use in the books) and also ignore the condition of the berry bush which you aren't tendidng to.
          Alos what lever of control over the typeof berry do you have?
          It's not like we are told Malfoy chose the speices of snake he magiced out with Serpensortia. What if you get poisonous berries or simply ones you don't want to eat?

        This always confused me because it's called the "summoning charm", but it doesn't seem to teleport stuff. But we do see people teleport stuff from nowhere too.

      Never watched the movies, they feel incredibly rushed. Stuff that happens over dozens of pages condensed in a 20 second scene.

      Silly stuff for kids that doesn't make sense but i still sometimes listen to the audiobooks when i'm out for groceries and shit, i just like them.

        Also, JK Rowling turned out to be extemely based so listening to the half blood prince or some shit always makes me feel like supporting her. Even though the last time i paid for any of her works was like 22 years ago

          I mean i never completely watched one, except the first one when it came out because i was a dumb child then.

          But i did try to watch the fifth and third movies and never made it past 20 minutes. I actually think lotr was a much better attempt when it comes to pacing and what to include and what not

          Scarcity still shouldn't be a problem for wizards
          >something breaks? reparo, good as new you don't have to buy a new whatever you just broke
          >need to travel? you can instantly teleport or fly there on your broom that doesn't require any fuel, frick road trips and traffic jams and planes and trains
          >busy waging all the time? you can have a slave to do all your housework for you so you come home to a nice house and even if you don't have a slave most chores are just a flick of the wrist with the right spell

          Any movie based on a book is going to feel rushed compared to the book because it's just not possible to show everything from hundreds of pages in a couple hours. This doesn't mean book movies are necessarily bad or they shouldn't be made, just a fact that they will never feel the same as the source material.

            I never understood the difference between foo powder, portkeys and apparation. Especially the last two like why'd they travel half a day to a port key in the middle of nowhere (how did that even end up there) that will take them to the quidditch wc instead of apparating.

              Apparition could be blocked in some places by charms. Also if somebody couldn't apparate or didn't know where to go a port key could still get them there.

    not really because even if "food" can't be "created out of thin air", along with some other things it can still be enlarged or probably even multiplied if you have a sample so no real scarciry as long as you have a single grain of wheat. also you can transfigure stuff into different more edible stuff. or you can make an Apple magically grow to 80 tons.

      When the curse multiplied the horcrux in the bank voult the copies weren't horcruxes. Copies of food might have 0 actual calories/nutrition just like the copy horcrux has 0 special magic

        I think that's mentioned in the books somewhere iirc. Food can be enlarged and all but it won't magically get more calories.

          This implies they can't create energy. What are spells then? How many calories in the Avada Kedavra curse?

    The fact that JK retconned Hermione into being black is 100 times funnier when you remember there's a subplot in the books that there's a literal slave race and Hermione's the only one who cares about it, and she's treated like a nagging b***h to point it out

        Investing this much effort and time in to the lore and world building of a mediocre children's book is pathetic and should be shamed publicly. Its like digging in to the lore of Percy Jackson or Winnie-the-Pooh or some shit. I put you on the same level as bronys.

            i think genre fiction in general is a waste of time. The only exception are truly innovative genre fiction like LOTR or do androids dream of electric sheep, which either are original enough to distinguish themselves or create new genres/precidents that other writers follow. It at this point trancends being genre fiction and becomes literature.
