Things you don't understand

Could you make a list? A list of things that you probably could understand if you put your mind to it, but don't.

Things like:

  • How the Federal Reserve works
  • Why things from China are so inexpensive
  • How Google Analytics works
  • Why kids like using FaceBook
  • How the guys in the factory make the widgets you sell
  • Six ways to make your web browser work better
  • How to make a great spaghetti sauce
  • Editing a wikipedia entry
  • Selling stuff on eBay

Has there ever been a better time to learn what you don't know? It's faster, easier and cheaper now than ever before (and, of course, there's way more stuff now that we don't understand). If I don't learn it now, when will I?
