Because it's fun!

Seriously, analyses=opinions. Different ways to look at things. That's what a forum is about - and what keeps things spicy.

I mean, you just offered your analysis. So it's all good.

BTW - My expert analysis is that these people should TAKE their young kids on a circ - not push them away from the dock and party for a year while their "mature"-yet-very-minor spawn battle the elements alone. Convenient for the partying parent? Sure. Responsible, mature custodianship? Not so much. (At least that's what the "experts" in the Dutch courts said).
