It's like suggesting to go to the beach and instead of someone objecting with "I think it's too cold today... have you checked the weather?" you get a 5 minute tirade about much it sucks to get sand in your clothes, how swallowing seawater is bad for you, that UV radiation is bad for the skin, that driving to the beach costs money and creates pollution, that people die in tsunamis on beaches, that you can be eaten by sharks, etc... which all boil down to the objector really saying "I haven't left the house in ages and I don't wanna.".
It's like mailing a mini clone of myself to China with a letter I want to write in mind and having him write the letter there, rather than just writing the letter myself and putting that in the mail instead.
Plus he's not as smart as me, so he will take longer to write it and might make some mistakes that I wouldn't.
