Going out to play is so overrated. I mean, what's the whole point. The sweat, the dirt, the risk of getting injured. Why would you want any of this? Why can't we all just stay indoors and play on our laptops or watch something on our televisions instead? Here are 23 reasons to support my point:

In case you did not get it, this is a sarcastic article. Going outdoors to play is very healthy and important. Kids these days have already missed out on so much with video games and TV shows taking over. There was a time when we couldn't wait to go outside and play. Sweating it out, getting tired and scraping our knees made it all the more fun. It was necessary for our survival. It still is, because how else will you enjoy life?
