stacks vs. queues

Why do nested function calls feel clean, but cascaded event
propagation feel like Rube Goldberg machines?

Beacause there are so many individual players?  For nested calls,
there is a single CPU.  For communicating processes, there is just a
lot more going on, and some intermediates could simply not be there.

Is there a way to think differently about this?
