* In all likeliness, I imagine the Wizard Council implemented the competition to prevent siblings from the off chance of getting power-hungry and turning on each other. It's essentially the same reason why the Siths have the RuleOfTwo--because before then, the Siths got too consumed with power, which created infighting, and led to the rule being implemented. In the same vein, the Wizards would not want to risk a similar incident of fighting over power. After all, power does corrupt.

New question
Added DiffLines:
[[WMG:The number of children]] *Why did Jerry and Theresa have three children if they knew there was a possibility of a family feud involving wizard powers? Why would they want their kids to compete like that, when they could just have one child keeping the powers, especially since Jerry saw first hand what happens, with his own siblings?

** Laritate explains it as "I fit the punishment to the person, not the crime." [[RaveMaster So basically, Hitler can steal a stapler and be put on death row, but if Greta Goody-Goody (the nicest and brownnose-iest person ever) murders everyone in her grade, she gets let off with a warning.]]

**** It was just pure luck in the movie. They ''had'' to make obvious the fact that Selena Gomez is their chosen {{Disney}} star.

* They do use them every now and then, but they're just as likely to just wave their wands and get the results.

[[WMG: The Ending]] Getting stuck working a shitty restaurant for the rest of your life while your siblings zoom off to a magical, exciting future is a happy ending in what way? Seriously, the ending of the series was really frustrating, because why on Earth would ANYONE be satisfied with essentially being stuck as a loser for the rest of their life?

**** I always thought that there was a simple reason why (a.) Justin was the last to disappear and (b.) Alex was still there - ''with her memory fully intact and undamaged'' - after the spell fully took hold (as Jerry said, after Alex tried to reverse it): '''Alex is''' ''not'' '''a Russo'''. Consider what the exact words of her wish spell were, and what she did was alter reality in a manner so that in the past, Jerry and Theresa never met (and therefore never married, had kids, etc.). Jerry explained the effects of the spell Alex cast; both Max and Justin experienced those effects almost immediately, ''but Alex'' '''never''' ''did''. There's only one reason why that would occur: ''Alex is not'' biologically ''Jerry and Theresa's child'', so the alteration of reality that kept Jerry and Theresa from becoming a couple and having a family never affected her birth - and because she was the originator of the spell, she was protected from its affects (otherwise, she'd have ''an entirely new set of memories'', and none of the Russo family). Just a few ideas...

Answering why ctrl-alt-del is a reboot
to:
*** Back in the days of DOS and early Windows (Pre 3.1) Ctrl-Alt-Del would forcibly reboot the computer. Now it is used to access the Task Manager and security features. It's a legacy thing, there isn't generally a key combination to reboot anymore so this is the closest thing they could use.

* I can offer up an explanation for two of the heirlooms: Considering [[RetGone the disaster]] that nearly happened to the family the ''last'' time Alex handled the Family Wand and the Book of Forbidden Spells, it'd be understandable if she was a little gun-shy about handling them again. Perhaps she is keeping them somewhere safe for emergencies. As for the Robe, maybe she just doesn't want to wear it in public? (They are in Italy during "Alex vs. Alex", after all. There are {{Muggles}} around.)

What on earth happened with Alex and Mason? Recently, they were forced to break up due to the Wizard Council's rule about humans dating werewolves. In order for them to get back together, Alex gets back in the Wizard Competition. However, in "Wizards of Apartment 13B", Mason returns as Alex and Harper's new neighbor [[PlotHole asking for them to get back together.]] Did the writers forget what story they set up? Apparently, because now Alex doesn't want to get back together with Mason. Why? Because she's trying to be independent and can't have a boyfriend right now. Perhaps she should have brought up the LAW against them being together instead. This is a {{Headscratcher}}, WallBanger, and Enormous PlotHole all in one. What's the deal!?

*BadWriting? Retcon? Every time we are show the competition is a different way. Either each family gets a different competition or the competition itself is random every time is used, so the families can't cheat.

In the episode where Alex and Justin get trapped in the horror movie it was said that wizards have the ability to create their own spell if they are in a emergency situation. Why did they never do this after this episode? Alex, Justin and Max were ALWAYS getting in some sort of trouble with magic and the ability to create your own spell could really come in handy when it came to fixing their magical problems in a snap.
