Things That Keep Me Up At Night

Why is Eric Clapton playing a Percy Mayfield song with a wedding band? Also, why is it that when you dial a wrong number, you never get a busy signal? And why is it if you tell people that the sun is a fiery furnace of hydrogen, constantly exploding in a fury of fusion energy, they just shrug and believe you; but if you tell them you just painted a doorframe, they touch it to see if it's sticky?

They shrug because they can't touch the sun to test your statement.
