What are somethings that are really popular, but you just don't get it?
One for me is NASCAR. All around here folks got Nascar flags flying. I never understood that s**t. Almost as boring as golf.

Racing videogames are so much more fun to play than to watch the real thing. 
Daytona USA, the Cruisin' games and San Francisco Rush were so awesome!

I don't get how America became so spineless and Politically Correct.  Or how the lazy and "entitled" get whatever they want from the government.  Or how protesters feel it's okay to hold up traffic for any piddly cause.  Or how people want to jump all over cops whenever they shoot someone.

I really don't think anybody on planet Earth will ever really know that.
Can anybody seriously ever-EVER- answer that question?

Except when they shoot people who shouldn't have been shot.

Celebrity worship. NASCAR. Overeating. Speeding. The Appeal of socialism. Patrilineal reckoning. Astrology. (Why we live in a poetical dark age.) Why people think a sugar high feels good. The appeal of tattoos. Eating and going straight to sleep.

I have to be up for a bit yet, so let me see if I can clear up some of these mysteries...

For Indy:
Woody Allen movies. (Some people think there's too little tawking in this world, so they turn to Woody to fix that.)
How anyone can NOT believe there is a God. (Because fervent prayers haven't resulted in many lottery wins, ergo, no God.)
The appeal of Donald Trump. (People wanted to prove The Simpsons' prediction true.)
Being vegetarian. (Because it never gets tiring at social gatherings listening to people tell us they have a cousin who is a vegetarian.)

RC:
Doctor Who: (An ever-renewing faith that the show will get really good one of these days.)
NASCAR: (At any second there might be a crash, which keeps it fresh.)
Golf: (Your guess is as a good as mine, sorry.)

retrorussell:
Spineless America: (We're pre-WALL-E, so our bones are weakening.)
PC Culture: (Satire waiting thirty years for someone to yell "Cut!" so we can go back to normal.)
Protesters holding up traffic: (It's the cars fault for not getting out of the way of protesters' tantrums.)
Jumping on cops: (Cops have killed millions of donuts and it's time they were held accountable.)

God: (You have to pray to something when you buy a lottery ticket.)
Flat Earth: (Could ten billion pre-1492 people really be that wrong?)
Twilight: (It has Anna Kendrick in it, and her teeth are impressive.)

Oh sure, it does happen.  But in (common) instances when someone raises their voice at a cop, doesn't listen to their instructions and advances towards them and after getting shot people cry that "they should have known he had such-and-such condition" or "they should have done more to de-escalate the situation" or whatever b.s... sounds like they deserved to be ventilated.

I also don't get when a passenger gets on a public bus and has to stand next to the driver and talk to them rather than sit down LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE.

Or why people bring their dogs into public business establishments and grocery stores.  And on that note, why people have to claim PTSD just so they can bring their pets everywhere.  I know it's a real thing but many people who say they have it don't.

I use the bus often in Pretoria and there's one guy who did that until the driver slammed on the brakes and the guy landed on his head.  Buggedout Wink

Most adults who don't know me well find me a bit intense and angry - I've been told this many times - yet, children who are the most perceptive of all human beings don't find me scary at all. They're not scared of me, they have no reason to be and they like me for some unknown reason.  Question

I've never understood this.

Trolls. I don't understand the appeal of pretending to believe something obnoxious just to watch people's reactions. Best I can come up with is it's an unsophisticated form of the prank, but some of these people's dedication to the "craft" is probably a mild form of mental illness.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
