12 Reasons It's Harder to be a Dad Than a Mom

This is quite funny. Matthew Archbold notes that mommyblogging is a far more prolific field than daddyblogging, and that this is unfair. After all, it's harder to be a dad than a mom:

1) When we gain weight we can’t blame the pregnancies.

2) When one of your daughters gets in a fight at school and your other daughter yells, “Sweep the leg Johnny” everyone blames you.[...]

5) “Wait until your Mommy gets home” just doesn’t sound as scary. It just doesn’t.[...]

10) When women see Dads out with kids they assume we’re sensitive people who like to chit chat. We’re guys. We don’t chit or chat. When we see people we know we say “hey” but we don’t stop moving. We never stop moving. We’re like sharks in that way.

@Regina -- yes, the way that he grips it to his chest was a nice touch. As Kevin R says, Stewart was the best actor in Trek.

@steph -- yes, that one's really good. Especially the scene when Gul Madred talks to his young daughter in front of the suffering Picard.

@vonskippy -- ugh. A Barclay episode. 1 was too many.

@KatieK777 -- oooh, yeah. And that incident with Yar would later saved Data's life in "Measure of a Man."

@JohnnyCat -- yes, the opening, with the repeated destructions of the Enterprise was a great way to grab the audience.

@Kevin R -- "Tapestry" is a good choice. I really liked the way that Picard woke up laughing at the end.

@Lex -- everyone on board hated Q, but he always seemed like good guy to go barhopping with.

@Jeff the Baptist -- I liked "Frame of Mind", too. The only thing that bothered me about the episode was that it illustrated that Starfleet officers have way too much free time on their hands.

@Anonymous Prime -- "Darmok" was actually required viewing for me in grad school. It was a good choice.
