I found an interesting short essay from HP Lexicon and it made me think about it even deeper than it goes.

First off; please don't get me wrong.
I love Dumbledore's character, I love Lockhart's character, I love Hogwarts, and I love, love, love the books and the HP universe. I'm just wondering and interested in what, if anything, is behind all this I'm about to discuss.
That if Rowling possibly actually planned this somehow and for some reason many parents in that universe are willing to over-look huge problems and risk their children's lives because of someone's status and previous reputation...OR if this is just unfortunate illogicness because of her coming up with awesome general storylines and interesting characters and not thinking some of them enough throroughly.

So, Hogwarts is supposed to be concidered "the finest wizarding schol" in the world I guess as there's only one in each country. And Dumbledore is supposedly concidered "the best Headmaster Hogwarts has ever seen".

I recently found a strange contradiction in the concept of wizarding money.I'd like to know if my idea is true or if there is a counter-argument against it.

In pg.65 of HP and the Chamber of Secrets,we learn that Muggle money can be exchanged into wizarding money.

We also know that potentially valuable(in a Muggle point of view) objects such as chairs can be Conjured by magic(eg:Dumbledore does this in the courtroom in HP and The Order of the Phoenix).

So any wizard who knows basic Transfiguration can Conjure objects such as chairs,sell them to Muggles to obtain Muggle money and then exchange this money into Galleons,thus obtaining an infinite amount of wealth.

Doesn't this contradict the whole point of wizarding money?

Thanks in advance for any help.

The whole Time Turner thing's always confused the heck out of me.

EDIT: Okay, problems solved. Please read the comments section, (too). Thans! :EDIT ENDS

First off; please don't get me wrong. I love the Prisoner of Azkaban book - it was the first book I ever read in the series, and it has always been one of my favourite parts of the series and still is. For everything else in it except this time travel aspect. Everything else in it is brilliant.

It's been many years since I last read the book, so I don't remember all the details...But going by the movie adaptation which I don't recall straying much from the book in this aspect...

1.) At the point when Harry and Hermione used the Time Turner, they'd already saved both Buckpeak and Sirius - so why didn't they remember that they'd just done that? And thus not use the Time Turner as there was no need to.

--> I know they were somehow devided into two different enbodiments of themselves at the moment of using the Time Tuener, but both enbodiments were pretty much at the same places at the same time just playing different roles, so when they were standing...
