If you watched December 26th’s post wishing you a “Poor 2014” then you may remember how fixing the game of Monopoly, i.e. giving one player more money at the start of the game as well as doubling what they pick up each time they pass “Go” did not make the advantaged player anymore compassionate. In fact, it seemed to do just the opposite. The advantaged player seemed more impressed with what they did to “deserve” their status as winner and seemed to forget they were given a significant edge over their opponent. Today’s post shows what can happen when you start out disadvantaged. I warn you though, if you react anything like me, you’ll not only laugh with Maysoon Zayid, you’ll cry with tears of amazement.
