25 Things That Are Easier to Understand Than Politics
I consider myself to be at least averagely intelligent; however, I'm able to understand politics just about as well as I can speak German (I only know how to say “sabberst du oder hast du spass machen?” which I think means “Can we go snorkeling?” or “Do you have rabies?”).
Trying to understand politics – and I mean REALLY understand, not just read the articles from your favorite sources that only reinforce your personal beliefs – is practically impossible. I’m talking about listening to each side and trying to fact-check each individual story you hear because as most of us know, the Internet tends to make up whatever the heck it wants.
Sometimes it’s just easier to think about other things. Maybe we don't totally understand those things either, but they're at least less complicated than comprehending the intricate details of Obamacare or Romney’s latest skin tone. So with the election today and all, try relaxing your brain with this list of things that are still challenging but DEFINITELY easier to understand than politics.
