why when you divide fractions
you flip the second one
The following is a list of thing that have explanations that you might have learned in school or read about but are total bullshit. If you take one extra second to think, you will see that there is really nothing that supports the explanation of why these things work.
|As soon as you say|
the word "law"
everyone thinks it's true.
Gravity - no reason it's here and not in space, except magic.
Why humans are alive- closed system that just works with food and oxygen, which is created from trees.
Why records work - ridges and needle don't equal music.
Digital music recording - there's nothing there, it's pretend.
Radio - sound waves directed around the world into distinct sounds/words - no plausible explanation.
Telephone - same
Television - really? sound and light just floats around the world and reconfigures exactly how we want?
Anesthesia - trauma to your body doesn't kill you because you can't feel it? You're still being cut open.
Most Math - past addition/subtraction/multiplication/division, logic doesn't explain any of that stuff.
Earth Rotating - inexplicable
I know seeing this all spelled out is very disconcerting for some of you. But, I think once you accept that most of the world operates on magic and just embrace it, you will feel liberated. Being compelled to understand and grasp fake concepts is why many people do not do well in school. It's a proven fact. There have been studies (trust me).

way, the scientific explanation
for why the earth rotates.
Completely changing topics, but it just came to mind as something else that doesn't make sense; mechanical pencils. In my last post I listed some things that I just don't see the beauty of. Many of you were on board, but quite a few people felt compelled to tout the mechanical pencil. One person was The Party. He loves mechanical pencils and informed me they are used by smarty-types like accountants and engineers (both groups who probably think electricity isn't magic) and, in support of his statement, he said that you don't see too many people filling out unemployment forms with mechanical pencils. Giant Ev. And whistle.
Think outside the box - you will see you are being fooled.
Magic has created electricity but not calorie-free, yet delicious pizza
When I say things like electricity and the phone are magic, people like The Party get all rashy and worked up.
I still think mechanical pencils suck.
