    No. To sire a child is to start a new life at the expense of my own. I like my life to much to throw it away like that. I'd sooner commit suicide than have a child.

    No. I don't want to give birth.

    Gross.
    For some, "how", not "why", is the fundamental unit of measure for curiosity. This divergence is neither parallel, nor straight. Where one might have a "why?-5" problem, it might only be a "how?-2" question. But then, there are also many things where the "why?" is immediately obvious but the "how?" is best measured in centuries of perpetual wonder. Both approaches have their drawbacks.

    If one is superior, the other is unaware of it.

    Nope but it happened anyway. I enjoy every little step towards independence though because it brings me that much closer towards not having to do it anymore.

    I've got a 3rd one on the way. I love being a dad. I also love developmental psychology. I'm sure those are related.

    So you are becoming a dad as a matter of experimenting?
