** Anyways, IMO JK herself never really smoothed out the details of wizarding economy. Remember that one Galleon that the Weasleys had in their vault in CoS ? Now compare that to Goblet of Fire, where Ron managed to save up more than ten Galleons from his pocket money over the summer vacation, & the twins managed to save some thirty seven Galleons ( and this was before the twins were shown selling their products to the students).

** LawOfCoservationOfDetail. Wizards probably have front companies that buy food from No-Majes, we just never get to see them because why would we? Also, contact may be limited, but at the very least No-Maj currence is excahngeable for Wizard one, so there must be at least some trade.

[[folder: Trusting Mundungus]]
* Why does the Order put so much faith in Mundungus Fletcher that they see fit to involve him in so many of their plans? The guy has a lot in common with Peter Pettigrew, whom they were similarly mistaken to have trusted, and he stole artifacts from Sirius's house, went AWOL and nearly got Harry expelled because of a good deal, and his cowardice in the final book was what got Mad-Eye killed...I'm fine with them keeping him around for intel, but why let in him in on so many of their operations when he's known to be extremely untrustworthy?

** To the OP: If you don't find a biting book funny, then maybe this are not the books for you. Rowling is doing fanservice, we the readers want to see magic everywhere and want to see wizards using magic for everything, even if is sometimes silly. That's why we bought a fantasy book about wizards. If the reaction about some of this world's gimmicks is "OMG kids shouldn't be eating this kind of stuffs, OMG this book is endangering these kids' lives, OMG someone please think in the safety of this children, this is outrageous!" then, again, maybe you are not the intended audience. That said, I don't think this is a headscratcher as headscratchers are define, is more a complaint.

*** "No, I most certainly wouldn't put enchants that rendered food gross, or made tools impractical and even dangerous." Well I most certainly would.[[note]]For the record, they don't put mucus or earwax in their food either, they just enchant something to taste like that as a joke, actually similar stuffs do exist in real life[[note/]]. And yes, it is said in the books that Hagrid himself enchanted the bitting books.

*** Merchants do want customer want, if there is a market for this food is because people buy in the first place. We actually have examples of that in real life, why would someone buy poison for personal consume (nicotine)? why would someone buy cards with children puking, shitting and doing gross and horrible stuffs (Garbage Pail Kids cards)? why would someone would buy movies about torture and horrible bloody deaths (gore movies)?

*** No, I most certainly wouldn't put enchants that rendered food gross, or made tools impractical and even dangerous. In real life, apps exist to either make things more convenient (the opposite of what the aforementioned enchants do), or provide publicity. They aren't created just because. We don't put gross things like mucus or earwax in our food, even though we could. Also, the book wasn't made by Hagrid, and there was no disclaimer or instructions on how to tame it; the students only found out about that trick because Hagrid (who is an expert on monsters and magical creatures) told them. Before that, they had to restrain the books to prevent them from biting them, and were unable to read it until Hagrid told them how to handle them.
