We clear up confusing situations

What makes us Brits Well, we polled 2,000 people to find out. And it seems that the obsession with the Kardashians is what perplexes us most.

So - through a series of videos on's YouTube channel Confuseddotcomonline - we’ve decided to clear things up for the perennially puzzled.

So what does confuse Brits?

Here’s the top ten situations which befuddled Brits find it difficult to get their heads around:

1. The obsession with the Kardashians
2. Which came first – the chicken or the egg?
3. The big bang theory
4. Why a freephone number isn’t free from a mobile.
5. How we know goldfish have short memories.
6. Why there’s no naturally-occurring blue food.
7. Why people pout (doing the ‘duck face’) in Instagram photos.
8. What blind people see when they dream.
9. Why we yawn, and why it’s contagious.
10. How Google really works.
