The Rules of Calvinball

Several people have sent this to me now, and as a true fan, I must post it: The Rules of Calvinball

My own experience with the game has been tumultuous. One game I was involved with ended abruptly two minutes into playing when someone questioned the masks. According to the rules, no one is allowed to question the masks. I tried to declare them questionable by way of a new rule, but the damage had been done. Although the game is defined by ever-changing rules, there are some hard and fast principles that always apply. Just like life.

For more Calvinball rule theory and zone declaration studies, consult the above link. Why there is no institute for this at major universities, I have NO idea.
