One Monopoly game piece is facing retirement, and Hasbro wants the public to decide which iconic piece will be scrapped. Players are being encouraged to go to a dedicated Facebook page to vote for their favorite piece. The one with the fewest votes will be discarded. Fans can also vote on a new piece — either a robot, a helicopter, a cat, a diamond ring or a guitar — to replace the loser

I don't like FaceBook or Twitter or any of those so called social sites simply because there ain't nuthin' social about them. I mean...you don't dis on a complete stranger when you pass him or her on the street simply because you don't like the sound of the way they look. Same analogy for the web. Words typed on a page rarely say anything about the person doing the writing. How do you convey a feeling or a view without visually expressing it? To see the person behind the words not over the internet. Might make a big difference in attitudes. Imagine......your life mate, lover, whatever, someone you love and care about in the real world turns out to be your nemesis on the net, one you wish all kinds of destruction on. And you'd never know it.

I'm thinking the car in favor of the robot. If they replace the  iron it should be with an ironing board or a hanger or something related to clothes. Cars are tech, robots are tech, robots make cars, robots take cars out.

Uvah, I would have thought you were the shoe, sneaking around and leaving a trail where you been. Did they have Monopoly when you were a kid, was it stone pieces and a wooden board with dice made from dino bone!

When I was a kid me and my oldest sister would fight over the car until my dad took it and that was that.

Yeah, I bet you could have melted down the horse to make a ball for your muskett!

It wasn't a muskett. It was a stick with a big rubber band.

When I was eight my dad made a slingshot using a 1/4 inch steel rod, a strip of rubber from a tire and a heavy piece of leather. You had to mount it because you couldn't pull it back with one hand. In our backyard my uncle had a pidgeon coop that used to attract rats. Standing on the small balcony outside his bedroom we spotted one coming out of the hole in the wall separating us from a neighbors junk yard. He put a steel ball bearing in the leather, pulled back and took aim. I watched as the rat's head exploded! Yuck!

Perhaps it was a musket? [so Jafo can enjoy his coffee in peace].
