Things that make no sense (or very little)

You ever look at or listen to something or someone and think, 'That makes no sense!'? Well, maybe it's because we're in the midst of another presidential election cycle, but I've been thinking that a lot lately. So I've compiled a list of things that, to me, make no sense, or very little sense (listed in no particular order). Feel free to add your own things via the Comments.

Things that make no sense (or very little)....
  • Sarah Palin
  • Donald Trump
  • The electoral college
  • The Bachelor
  • Daylight Savings Time
  • Why some months have 31 days, others have 30, and February has only 28
  • What constitutes a catch in football
  • Most of football (though I still like watching)
  • What is considered a penalty in hockey (or why you can beat a guy up and it's not a penalty, but raising your hockey stick too high is)
  • What constitutes offsides in soccer
  • Why women volunteer for stuff only to complain how much they hate volunteering. (Do they not understand what "volunteer" means?)
  • People who smoke
  • The stock market
  • The real estate market
  • Why men still get paid so much more than women for doing the same or similar jobs
  • Why cats must rub up against everything, knock sh*t off counters, and sit in front of your computer monitor while you are trying to work or read. (OK, I kind of understand this one, but still.)
  • Why dog owners treat their dogs better than they do their spouse or children (most of the time)
  • Why people keep pythons as pets
  • Why it can be 70 degrees one day and snow the next
  • Why people continue to live in places that are known to repeatedly flood or be subject to tornadoes
  • Why people eat food that they know is bad for them. (OK, I kind of get this one, too, but....)
  • Why it costs so much to attend college
  • Why some people refuse to accept facts
  • Why you can do all the right things and still be wrong

I get The Bachelor. People love LOVE. And sometimes, we do actually get to see a couple fall in love. And, we might recognize in those crazy contestants behavior that are also a barrier to us finding love. But mostly it is the guilty pleasure on watching people implode.
