Humans have been telling each other stories for thousands of years, and for a long time, all sorts of tales involving heroism and villainy could only be passed down through the generations through oration alone. That all changed though when humanity started to learn to use the written word, with some of the earliest great stories coming from Ancient Greece and Rome, stories which involved war and the presence of mythological creatures and powerful deities. We now live in the 21st century, and there are currently thousands of books available for people to read, books which contain stories from every kind of genre imaginable, and one of the most popular genres in all of storytelling is fantasy, primarily because this genre almost always includes stories with complex and interesting plots, great characters, and immersive and vibrant worlds.
There are a number of great fantasy book series out there, like A Song of Ice and Fire, the Wheel of Time series, and The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and the Harry Potter series is definitely a part of that list as well. The story, which spans a total of seven books and eight feature length movies, was written by J.K. Rowling, and deals with a young male wizard named Harry who, together with his friends Ron and Hermione, try to defeat an evil wizard bent on ruling the world. The series has sold millions of books worldwide, and contains a fanbase which is incredibly loyal and knowledgeable, but even the most hardcore Potter fans can agree that some things within the series just do not make much sense, and the purpose of this list, is to point out 15 of these nonsensical things.
15. Every House In Hogwarts Somehow Has The Same Number Of Students
In each and every school, students tend to split off into smaller social groups, which is completely normal as people tend to want to spend their time with individuals who they have a lot in common with, which is why jocks usually hang out with other athletes, and why “nerds” can usually be seen with other intellectuals. Hogwarts may be a school of witchcraft and wizardry, but it is just like every other school in terms of its students splitting off, but in Hogwarts’ case, the school is responsible for placing the students into specific groups thanks to its house system. Each year, new students come to Hogwarts, and these kids get placed into either Ravenclaw, Slytherin, Hufflepuff or Gryffindor by the Sorting Hat, and what is interesting is the fact that all of these houses somehow have the exact same number of students in them. When the Sorting Hat sorts someone into a house, it takes into account that person’s personality and preference, and seeing as everyone is not smart enough to get into Ravenclaw, and more kids would rather be in Gryffindor than Slytherin, then each house should not be equally filled to the brim.
