I must confess…please explain?
I consider myself to be relatively smart and savvy. I’ve completed an honours degree at university, a certificate IV at TAFE and countless academic and vocational training courses over the years.
In fact, I’d go out on a limb and say that I’m pretty damn intelligent.
But, despite 40 years worth of experience on this earth, and all the intelligence at my disposal, there are still many things that I just don’t understand.
…the national obsession with the Melbourne Cup, “the race that stops the nation.” Why? I just don’t understand.
…why beauty pageants are still a thing and why parents enter their kids just to complain when they happen to win?
…why people are threatened by appearance diversity and resort to violence & intimidation to push their point?
…the reason why albinism is still so misunderstood and feared around the world?
…the hype around Game of Thrones? I’ve tried watching it but I just don’t get the appeal?
…how US coins work. Why is there a $1 coin AND $1 note? And what does a nickel, dime & quarter actually mean in terms of cent value?
…why people still believe that vaccinations cause autism?
…why we just can’t all get along?
…the rules of AFL. And while you’re at it, why teams in the NFL require different people to play different parts of the game?
But my biggest “please explain/I don’t understand” issue has been reserved for this week’s video below…
Are there issues that force you to scratch your head and wonder “what the?” Is there anything that you truly just don’t understand?
