Tax brackets. People refuse to understand that you don’t lose money by making more money.

Why the bread dries out in the toaster oven if you don’t remove it as soon as the toasting is done.

@Call_Me_Jay LOL. In my experience they understand it when it’s explained, they just don’t believe it. Or, if they do believe it, they spent a lot of years not understanding it.

A guy I know is into physics research for a hobby and it was pretty crazy when he was describing “gravitational echo”. He said that researchers have measured the gravitational echo of 2 black holes colliding that happens many millions of years ago. They have a sound recording of it and it sounds like a “whoop, whoop, whoop, whoop”. Also they are now trying the measure the gravitational echo of the big bang.

One time I tried to tell a friend the difference between exactness and precision. I gave up when I saw the eyes glaze over.

The fact that erections, orgasms, “squirt”, and active sperm delivery are not directly tied to each other. Men can have one, or any combination of them.
