The world is full of mysteries. There are things about our home planet that we do not understand and may never will. Sometimes, I think about these mysteries and wonder about the things that I do not understand. Some of them are serious. Some of them are absurd. Some of them can be found in the middle.
Tonight, I do not understand why:
airplanes stay in the sky.
some foods are only prepared during the holidays.
people wonder which came first – the chicken or the egg.
Bigfoot has never been found.
men hit women.
people think they have to choose between science and religion.
silent movies look like that are going in fast forward.
we have to fall back and spring ahead.
people need alcohol to relax or have a good time.
I am addicted to my iPhone.
many people find history boring.
Led Zeppelin will not reunite.
people choose not to vote.
fast food restaurants do not live up to their name.
we buy water in bottles when we already pay for it to come through the tap.
There you have it. On this night, those are the things I do not understand.
