Fans have some strong opinions about a newly revealed Hogwarts fact
Some questions don't need asking. And definitely don't need answering.
Well. Here we are. We never expecto-d to be discussing the bowel movements of fictional wizards and witches, but here we are.
As part of National Trivia Day, the Twitter account Pottermore - aka the digital heart of J.K. Rowling's World Of Wizarding - decided to drop this revelation:
Hogwarts didn't always have bathrooms. Before adopting Muggle plumbing methods in the eighteenth century, witches and wizards simply relieved themselves wherever they stood, and vanished the evidence. #NationalTriviaDay

When they say they "vanished" it, does that mean they sent it somewhere else? Is someone about to stand in a suddenly appearing pile of poo? Or does it mean they simply made it invisible, so someone might still stand in the poo, they just won't see where the smell is coming from? There are so many questions here, and yet we kind of don't want ANY of them answered.
Regardless, fans had some pointed reactions about having to even think about this whole subject:
I heard there's a whole chapter cut out of the Deathly Hallows about Hermione crying at the smell in the tent because Ron refuses to go in the woods. https://t.co/NgBkCax7QP

Wizards went *backwards* for some reason.

Regardless, one thing we can all agree on is that we're very excited for the new Hogwarts adventure...
