Why women fancy Russell Brand was the fourth most befuddling issue on a list of 50 things that people today find confusing, according to a survey of 2,000 people carried out by Puzzler World 2012.

it is the offside rule, credit card interest rates, politics or crop
circles, these are things which baffle us and take us time to

'sometimes' ask for help when we can't figure something out.'
