There are many things we humans still haven't figured out. Like, what came before the big bang, will AI eventually overtake us, and why do all dads grunt when they sit down. Or why they take grilling so seriously. In fact, there are probably more mysteries about dads than the universe. To try and get to the bottom of them, people have started Tweeting them, and the questions perfectly describe every dad in the history of dadness. The sad part, however, is that even with all that attention, most of them remain unanswered. Science is one way we make sense of the world around us, but it appears that even rationality can't explain everything.

They think sleep is for the weak and they don't wanna be weak OR they know falling asleep in front of a loved one is rude and they don't want to be rude to their loved one

Well I'm not a dad but I do take grilling or any kind of meat cooking seriously. I mean the animal had to die so you can eat it, the least you can do to respect that, is being really focused on making it really delicious :D

If they're like my ex, then it's because they don't spend their money. He would walk around a store, give me a list of things to buy for him, and then complain that I never had any money.

Dumb question. Answer - Easier to get out, easier to load/ unload the trunk when it isn't facing traffic, Dads don't see it as a special showy thing, just an obvious thing to do.
