Which "Harry Potter" Plot Hole Can You Never, Ever Unsee?

If Harry can regrow all of his arm bones in one night why can't he gain 20/20 vision instead of wearing glasses?!

Alright, Potterheads. It's your time to shine. I know you have figured out some tiny plot hole from the books that still bothers you to this day.

Warner Bros.

For instance, in the first book Dumbledore banned the third floor where Fluffy was guarding a trap door, but Harry, Ron, and Hermione fell through the trap door in the end. But how do you fall through a trap door that's on the THIRD floor? Does the chute go through the rest of the castle somewhere?!

Or maybe you've wondered why the heck Harry didn't get to fix his eyesight with magic and instead had to go about wearing glasses in all of the books. In Chamber of Secrets, they're able to regrow his arm bones overnight. Why not 20/20 vision!

Warner Bros.

And if Hogwarts is supposedly the safest, most secure place, then why in the world did Dumbledore not provide more thorough background checks for incoming professors? Especially after Professor Quirrell! I mean, Lockhart was a fraud and Moody was someone else entirely.
