Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

On Playing Monopoly

I have done it wrong all my life.

You have done it wrong all your life.

By "wrong" I mean not in accordance with the rules.

"Oh - of course," you say, "everybody does that."

But not in the way you imagine.  I'm not talking about house rules.  I'm talking about ignorance.  You have always played it wrong because you don't know how to play it right.

When I saw the title of this post, I thought you were going to start talking about Wal-Mart. Huh. Who woulda thunk it.
