Things You Just Can't Understand

    I can't understand why a guy I know at work is so invested in climate change denial, that he thinks the outside temperature has been at least 10 degrees cooler than any thermometer or weather report that I've seen. He says it's been in the 60's at night lately. Tonight will be cooler than it's been in quite a while and it might get down to 69F if we're lucky.

    You really can convince yourself that it's cool, when it's hot? I'd like some of that, please.

    What I can't understand is how intelligent adults are confused by the American political system and how little impact the average citizen has assuming they aren't just totally apathetic already.

    Yeah, let's hold politicians and other government officials accountable for all the horrible things they've done wrong. Good idea. How are we going to do it in a way they haven't already covered?

    They're in the business of maintaining power. And they've very good at it. Not so good at running countries or prioritizing needs or using money or avoiding gay sex cravings in airport restrooms.

    The current federal administration has had more major scandals in the last few years than I can remember in a long time and absolutely nobody has even gone to a federal country club for any of it.

    So, yeah, I don't understand how you don't understand that part while I don't understand any of it.

    Apparently there is a hell of a market for them and the you don't get put in jail as long for bones.

    Don't let them get out of the room until understand what they are talking about.
    You are paying for this, they have an obligation, legally and morally, to make sure you are clear on what's happening.
    Don't be afraid of looking dumb, they are paid to know this stuff not you.
    Make it clear you don't want to be a mushroom and insist on having it explained in terms that make sense.
    Don't let them just hand you reams of paper and say "Just read this,."
    You can be in control and the first thing to lock down is the doctors even if that means being a bit of a dick in your own defense.

    My mother-in-law loves her dogs more than her grand children.
    It is a highly disturbing reality.

    How sad.

    - Why the Glock pistol is still so popular in a world where there are guns actually designed for the human hand.

    - Why "nighties" still exist. Fit women make them look like vintage jammies and fat women make them look like sausage casing.

    - How you can pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for a new house and end up with something that has light switches on the wrong friggin' walls.

    - How it is that you get into a relationship and prioritize the shit out of the other person to the point that you live like a college kid, they live like a spoiled child. That's love.

    - Why breast implants are so popular. I've never played with a girl that has implants thus I don't really get it but the fake thing is a huge turn-off and apparently it's a bucket of money to get good ones.

    - How the hell a bunch of illiterate goat-fuckers in black pajamas took over 2/3rds of the country I spent my early 20s "liberating" in the name of non-existent weapons of mass destruction. Seriously, it's like the worst joke ever.

    - Why police departments think it's a good idea to roll around in armored vehicles, wearing camo and pointing assault rifles at civilians as a default response to civil unrest instead of addressing crowd control in a more traditional civilian manner.

    We dealt with a urologist who is a very highly respected surgeon, but getting him to stay in the exam room and explain anything in laymans terms required way too much effort.

    I will never understand why car drivers—some, not all—get so triggered by being stuck behind a cyclist for 7 seconds, god forbid, and go to stupid, unsafe lengths to assert their dominance over said cyclist by whipping around them with barely adequate clearance when it's completely unnecessary to do so.

    Contrarians. In particular the ones who know they are wrong, know they will pay a price for being wrong, and don't care. Usually they can be avoided, but they became a tour de force in 2016.

    I can't understand why on weekdays I have to drag my kids out of bed for school, but on weekends they're up at 4:30 acting like they just snorted cocaine.

    I can't understand why most people don't understand that Jesus was a socialist. I mean, it's pretty damn obvious.
