Fun is Difficult: Difficult is Fun

I've managed to explain to my children (well the one old enough to understand anyway) that things that are difficult are fun because they are hard to do, the activity of attempting it is fun in itself... but then i came across python ;)

Things that are difficult to do well (like driving, pool, computer games that are not zelda/final fantasy, cooking) are fun because they are difficult, probably because there is a sense of achievement in them. With python though, i get the same sense of achievement without the blood dripping fingers.

Python ruined my moral tale!
