Human beings eventually remove the fun from every activity. It’s in our nature. The Olympics are a great example of this phenomenon. Pretty much every Olympic event started out as some sort of fun, or maybe some form of productive activity, like killing people that looked at you funny, but they all eventually turned into a thousand pages of rules with Bulgarian judges deciding who wins.
Somewhere in the dawn of antiquity, a couple of guys dragging their crap around on sledges looked at each other and said, “You know, Grok, it might be fun to slide down the hill on our travois, and see who gets to the bottom first. Last one down has to gut the mammoth!”
Humans can ruin anything if you give them long enough.
