to tie a tie.

i was asking my father about tying ties the other day.
and realized that its not that simple.
there are many ways to tie one.
a four-in-hand, half-windsor, full-windsor, etc.
i decided to look it up and stumbled (via wikipedia) upon this:
the 85 ways to tie a tie by thomas fink & yong mao.
thats a little excessive no?
i mean in the end it looks pretty similar to me.
why do they make this seemingly simple task so complicated and confusing?

ps. i like the plain ole windsor knot.
