20 Things I’ll never understand…Part 1 :)


Ok, so we all know there are things you’ll never understand….Paris Hilton, why on earth people eat toilet paper or their couch and don’t think anything is wrong with themselves…Sarah Palin. You get the picture.  Well, for me here is a not-so-comprehensive list that I just feel the need to get on paper tonight after some pretty stupid local news stories that made me want to stop watching news (again…) and will probably succeed!  here we go:

  1. Why people watched Jerry Springer for so long
  2. How on God’s green earth Jersey Shore came to being
  3. Why Firefly was taken off the air…and Farscape too for that matter
  4. That Coconut milk ice cream doesn’t really seem to melt appropriately.  Doesn’t stop me from eating it (vegan, remember), but sort of disturbs me.
  5. How people can actually enjoy doing dishes.
  6. Sarah Palin and her rise to “fame” or is it infamy? Time will tell I suppose.
  7. The need to develop a widget just because…sigh. Story of my life.
  8. People who think the easiest way is the best way – like using tables to develop a site
  9. Music or videos that autoplay – Ack! Or worse…have NO controls for you to stop the insanity
  10. Why people insist that Flash intros are the way to go
  11. Rich media ads that automatically expand when you got to a page (ESPNCNN – I’m talking to you!)
  12. Why Microsoft had to buy Skype – I’m terrified of what it is going to become…
  13. Why people think putting EVERYTHING on their homepage is a must. Seriously people, less is more.
  14. Anderson Coopers hair – is it real, really? Doubtful
  15. Fox News (even typing it made me throw up a little…)
  16. Men
  17. How someone could think remaking “buffy” (tv version) without Geller and Whedon would EVER fly
  18. Why Sookie makes money on being…herself
  19. Why we can’t take after CBC and have some positive nationwide news more often – so depressing (tied to above, i know)
  20. The Tea Party – really? The fact that my friend referred to them as TP (which made me think of toilet paper) really only ads to this
While this is not an exhaustive list, it is only an installment, I am sure there will be more.  What are some things you’ll never understand! Inquiring minds want to know!  Bring it.
