I Don’t Understand…..

There are things in life that baffle me.

Perplex, flummox, nonplus me!

I don’t understand how the internet/cabling works – I mean how does my email blast across the world to someone 1000’s of miles away?  Instantly.

If birds fly, why can’t I?  Actually the whole flight thing is baffling.

If a dog’s owner speaks German to it will that dog understand when I speak English to it?

Puzzling right?

And here are my bewildering questions when it comes to the world of design.

Why do cushions have different backs?  “Look at my lovely 1/2-only cushion!”    Mongolian fur cushion

To me the 1/2 cushion is akin to someone dressed nicely in the front and naked in the back.  Right?                                                                 naked man

Next on the list are Pot Filler Faucets.  Very convenient to fill a pot right on the stove but how the heck do you get that very full, heavy, boiling pot to the sink afterwards?    Delta Pot Filler

Any why did it take almost 100 years for manufactures of refrigerators to design them counter depth?                                                                            fridge

And duvet covers that are sized ‘Full/Queen’.  A queen mattress is 6 inches wider than a full (double) mattress so that silly duvet cover is too large for a double and too small for a queen. Dumb!                                                                

But on a serious note I want to comment on the baffling recent world event of the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.  To date over 2.24 million square nautical miles have been searched looking for the plane and the missing 239 people aboard and nothing has been found.  My thoughts and heartfelt concern go out for those people and I pray they all be found alive and safe.
