Even though I am a college grad (with an average gpa) and relatively smart, and well read…there are still relatively simple, well understood things that boggle my mind and impress me because I cannot wrap my mind around. The most astounding example is songwriting. Even a simple, three minute craptastic pop song is somewhat impressive to me because I just can’t even believe how difficult it must be to WRITE THE MUSIC FOR A SONG. To come up with something original and new and know the notes and chords and how other instruments should play, and then put lyrics to it? Seriously amazing.
What are some things that utterly amaze you that your fellow dopers may find easy?
