Men play for keeps. Plus dead man wins a seat.

Those of you who are Family orientated may be aware that a Monopoly game becomes a battle when dad is playing. My research reveals fathers are more likely to go all out to win when they play board games with their children- or grand children.
Mum's in the main are quite happy to see their children enjoy the thrill of victory if it makes life more easier, it seems most dads enjoy a 'school of hard knocks' approach either because they themselves  can't stand losing, or to teach their child how it feels to taste defeat. However, this usually creates a problem for most kids who  in most cases throw a wobbly if they don't win.
Wives too become annoyed when they mostly lose when playing card games, to keep the peace it is best to create a winning opportunity from time to time  for  madame although it tends to go against the grain of my superior  male ego.

Read this the other day.  Recently a Dead man has been elected to the Texas State Senate, a few weeks after he died.
Mario Gallegos posthumously beat a Republican candidate after his family and friends continued to work on his behalf until the last vote was counted.
This sort of stupidity could only happen in The United States of  Uncle Sam land, or could some of those back benchers in our parliament be deceased and mummified to make up the numbers. wouldn't surprise  me.

Remember  He who does not hope to win has already lost, and to be trod on you have to be lying down.....back soon ..Vest.

Most politions promise the world but give nothing.they are there to promote themselves, and help themselves most are or were practicing ambo chasers, greedy conniving sleazy liars and thieving charlatons. the percentage of these white collar crooks winding up in jail is five times higher than the national average.

CA: No one can be so calculatedly rude as the British, which amazes Americans, who do not understand studied insult and can only offer abuse as a substitute, as in your case C A.

CA is a mortary worker by trade or definition.

There may be some hiccups or two, but your description of monopoly is accurate. I feel that fathers just hate losing.
