What is mysterious to you?

I think people from other countries are mysterious because they don't talk about their feelings and their life like Americans do (Americans talk about EVERYTHING.) and I never know what they're thinking.

What is mysterious to me is how my magnificant brother and myself come come from the same genetic pool. I mean, my brother is happy, successful (and every sense of the word)...and perfectly normally...then there is myself...who is unsuccessful (in every sense of the word), a freak...and not normal...oh, well, whatever.

love remains very mysterious to me. I can't figure it out for the life of me...the mind of the toddler remains pretty murky to me as well... if I could just figure out what the heck compels my son to want to play with his dirty diapers and watch the same movies 145 times in a row my life would be much less frustrating!

People who buy retail mass-marketed computers buy/download all kinds of crap and install it and expect the manufacturer of their PC to be able to not only help them fix every single issue but also explain how every tiny detail works and why.

It's a mystery as to when we lose our "innocence" growing up....and turn into the jaded cynical assholes we are now.

Why people are so irresponsible. Like drinking and driving--no good can come of that, but people do it anyway.

I can't think of anything that is mysterious in the sense of mystery novel type mystery. There are many things about my faith in God that are mysterious -- in the mystical sense. But that feels much too private to share.

Why people can be so heartless. Yesterday I was driving my new car and i see a man throw something at my car turned out to be a box full of rocks. What would make someone want to do this? For fun? for anger? I never knew this person nor did i do anything to him, wrong place at the wrong time i suppose but it doesnt answer my questions.....

Life is mysterious to me. How we were brought here, how we came to live and thrive, the stars and other places. There are so many questions and so few answers.

certain people's thoughts


Not to be morbid, but the whole dying thing is quite mysterious to me. I want, with all my heart and soul to believe that there has to be "something" after this. But I'm not sure I want to buy into coming back as a bug or a leaf. I'd like to think there's just another type of existence beyond the one we already know. When I think of mystery, death comes to mind first and foremost.

Much of the world is mysterious--but I'm very fond of solving puzzles.

Mysterious to me is how the body functions and is made.

Why do the actors in soap operas use their cell phones in the hospital?

There are a lot of things I find mysterious. One thing is outer space.All of those planets and things, and just exactly how far does it go? And how many forms of life are out there? Another thing is people. People are mysterious. You never know what they're gonna do. Or what they're thinking. Animals are mysterious. Are they smarter than we take them for? Just how much smarter are they? Are they thinking about us? My cat sits and stares at me a lot, sometimes for 15 minutes at a time. And she'll look me right in the eyes. I've learned she doesn't want anything. And she doesn't really want me to pet her, so what is she staring at me for? I don't even have to go into details on the mysteriousness of God. The afterlife is mysterious. I could go on and on....but I won't.
