Remember the four railroads companies in the Monopoly game? Remember how one of them is called Reading Railroad? Well, the name is actually pronounced Redding Railroad, not Reading (as in reading a book).
I learned this today, and I still can’t get over it. REDDING!!! What?!
It’s like when you first learn that the Emancipation Proclamation never actually freed any slaves or that Christopher Columbus wasn’t really the first person to discover the Americas. Makes me wonder what else from my childhood is completely inaccurate.
My life has been irrevocably altered.
