    If you want to choose ONE thing you think is over-rated, what will it be? Also, if you want to choose ONE thing you think is under-rated, what will it be? There is no need to explain your reasons, if of course you want to offend football or home theater fans! [​IMG]

    My choices:

    Over-rated: baseball
    Under-rated: reading

    I am child-free, so I won't address the issue personally, but an Ann Landers poll done years ago, and periodically updated, found that more than 50% of parents would not have children again if they started over.

    Unscientific for sure, and the polling might be statistically abberrant, but food for thought nonetheless.
