I already foreshadowed this sequel in this post and now the time is ripe for another list of 10 mind-boggling mind buggers a. k. a. things I don't get.
- Deodorants that are supposed to prevent you from sweating up to 8, 24, 48, 72 hours. What's next? Sweat free for life? Besides, who doesn't wash themselves for 72 hours?! If you do get lost in the middle of a jungle and you aren't able to wash yourself for 3 days, I'm sure you won't be concerned about braking a sweat.
- That all babies are cute. No, they aren't. Yes, every life is precious but, please, don't confuse that with being cute. Don't give the title of cuteness just to everybody and set them up for disappointment.
- All thongs that aren't a g-string. You know, the ones that have a wide strip of fabric instead of just a string. Imagine that a thong is an intruder and your butt crack is your house. Would you want Fat Bastard to come and invade your privacy or Miranda Kerr? Just saying.
- Grown women wearing Hello Kitty clothes in public. If your shirt says HELLO KITTY in a 110 point font, you shouldn't be wearing that after the age of 7. Ok, maybe 11, but definitely no later than 15.
- The Twilight Saga.
- So many people loosing their mind because of the Twilight Saga.
- A smiley face on my tube of mayo. The text says: "Mayonnaise with olive oil - with added virgin olive oil :)" Is it meant as a joke? "Mayo with added olive oil. Not." But since when is mayo supposed to be a funny item? Or is that a sadistic smiley face: "Mayo - slowly killing you with cholesterol. Ha."
- This next one might offend some of you but if you have a reasonable explanation, please, shed some light on this because I just don't get why some people publish 20 pictures per outfit-of-the-day post - the outfit is the same, the location is the same and most often the pose is the frigging same. I think there are actual Victoria's Secret angels that don't get 20 good pictures per shoot! I have to get physical therapy for my finger or at least take a break before I can scroll through all of those THE SAME photos.
- This one needs a bit of background. Not long ago, I saw some tweets floating around: "What was the farmer doing to the cow to discover milk?" or "How did man discover milk?" People retweeted that like crazy. Some even made YouTube videos about the mysterious discovery of milk and how sick that first farmer was. Really? You can't figure that one out, Sherlock? I don't get how people aren't able to connect the dots on this one: Just as a baby human sucks on a female human's nipple to get milk, a baby cow sucks on a female cow's udder. People saw that and thought why not try it, just like they tried goat milk and sheep milk and probably other animals' milk too but I don't want to think about that too much. It's not that the farmer started squeezing random cow parts to see what would happen: "Let see what this does," tugging on a tail. Na-a.
- Why you have to remove all of your earrings, rings and piercings if you're going to give birth or have an operation. When you get your wisdom tooth extracted, nobody asks you to take your oral piercings out, but while you're squeezing something through your vaginal canal, god forbid you have earrings on or your nose piercing in. I asked a doctor what's the reason for it and the answer was: "That's the protocol." No other reason. The sole purpose of the protocol is the protocol itself. If you're thinking about bacteria, don't: Even if you remove the piercing, the hole is where the bacteria is and you can't remove that. And as far as safety reasons in case they have to revive you with electroshocks are concerned: In the 9th episode of the first season, Mythbusters proved that it takes a piercing a size of a DOORKNOB for lightning to be attracted to it. Busted.
People say money makes the world go round, but it seems that stupidity does a pretty good job too. Since there's a growing shortage of money in the world, thank god the economy isn't sucking the resources of stupidity dry as well so our world keeps on turning.
Don't forget to follow via Twitter and/or share if some of these things make you go "huh??" as well. There are new posts coming up every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, so you are more than welcome to drop by this Wednesday.
