Calibrating computer monitors?

A couple of questions.

Why?  Are computer monitors that far off?  I have a Macbook Pro, and it sure looks correct to me. 
What do you calibrate it TOO?  And since your calibrating on your computer, how do you know when it's correct? 
Other than pros that require perfection for magazines like National Geographic editing using 5K monitors, who needs to have their monitor calibrated?

I take pictures like I play guitar. I will never be mistaken for Ansel Adams or Eric Clapton.
