As all of my friends know, I am not a math student! I barely passed Algebra in college and because of an oversight was never required to take any more math to graduate! (God's mercy at work!) This made me laugh hysterically since I've never had a day of physics in my life other than what they managed to sneak into my other math courses and whatever you may or may not use physics for in daily life! Honestly, I've been perplexed about some things lately, but quantum physics isn't one of them!
For instance yesterday I was perplexed when I decided to wear the 1 bra I have left that has both under-wires completely in tact. Frankly I was tired of being poked all day! I do rotate them so I'm never poked the same place for more than one day at a time--is that considered using physics? Anyway, I got dressed and walked to my car. Just as I plopped down on the driver's seat, I heard SNAP! Yep, you guessed it. I now have no bras with two totally intact under-wires. What perplexed me is that there is certainly not enough pressure on any of those under-wires to warrant them snapping! I am a charter member of the itty bitty club so why these things snap is a total mystery to me- probably because I don't understand quantum physics.
I'm perplexed about why my youngest son would paint his body all different colors from the waist up and adorn himself with an array of necklaces that glow that have been pushed through 5 inch Styrofoam cones and dance his way through the high school homecoming parade in front of the whole town. No, he wasn't part of a group, or on a float. This was just something he and a friend came up with because they got tired of tying each other to chairs in the garage and throwing balls in their stomachs to see how many or how hard a ball it takes to get them to ask for mercy. THAT perplexes me and probably is something I would understand if I understood quantum physics because quite frankly, no other subject that I studied anywhere, EVER can explain that to me.
There are many other things that perplex me-why two people with no children who work 60 hour work weeks need a million dollar house with 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms because they are never there to enjoy it. I doubt they even use all three bathroom in the space of a week but they pay a cleaning lady to clean them; the people who work within the beltway in Washington DC perplex and sometimes infuriate me; the stupid, senseless things that people blog about like overpriced items at garage sales, how many starbursts they ate in a day, or the price of toilet paper at Wal-mart--for heaven's sake, move on and get a life. Of course, I could include this blog in that list as well, but hey, we all should get one senseless rambling opportunity every now and then. I believe that must be part of what you learn in quantum physics. I've never been to a physics class, as I said, but there is an awful lot of mindless, illogical, senseless rambling that goes on in university classes and those people have all had quantum physics.
There are many, many things about God that perplex...and inspire...and cause me to stand in awe...and folks...that even quantum physics can't explain like His majesty, His perfection, His power, His wisdom, His mercy, His modes of operation- so why would I want to buy a book about quantum physics? I'm sure that if there is anything about quantum physics that I need to understand, God will reveal it to me in a way that won't perplex me.
Sorry Amazon, you didn't sell me anything today.
