I was wondering, after watching the Harry Potter films several times earlier, the way the witches and wizards fly on brooms is quite impossible the way I see it.
- Sitting on such a thin broom is awfully uncomfortable and difficult, there’s no way one can prevent spinning and sliding off. How do they hold on it and on to it?
- The leg holders (or whatever they are called) are too far behind, and keeping your legs in such a position for too long will result in pain and more, at least the way shown in the films.
- When upside down or in a vertical position, there is no way a person could hold on to the broom without severe force, and the grip should be extra strong. Does magic help stay on the broom?
