|Jan-26-09|| ||WannaBe: <Benzol: Just found out that actor Ricardo Montalban died earlier this month.
Yes, <Benzol>, us trekkies/trekkers have been in sorrow over the Trek's 'Superman'...
|Jan-26-09|| ||M.D. Wilson: Thanks, A.G. Argent, I have seen this game before, and it's a beauty.|
|Jan-26-09|| ||WannaBe: The probability of <technical draw> getting 'bonked' on the head by an asteroid is now 1.34231^18 to 1.|
The probability of anyone actually understanding statistics is 5 to 1, (but it's closer to 5,000,000,000 to 1 if you are a reporter, and never taken any math class higher than 8th grade math...)
|Jan-26-09|| ||Travis Bickle: <WannaBe> Just wondering... did you take into consideration in your mathematical calculations of the size of Technical draw's huge cranium? You know size x flatness x girth?|
|Jan-26-09|| ||A.G. Argent: <WannaBe><...Khhhhhhaaaaaannnnn!!!!> Dude, why leave off <,you bloodsucker!!!!> ? Yep, Ricardo's signature role.|
|Jan-26-09|| ||Simonkaser: happy new yeaaar !!!!!!!!!|
|Jan-26-09|| ||WannaBe: Time to set off some of 'em fireworks!! Happy New Year!!|
|Jan-26-09|| ||technical draw: Is today the Chinese New Year or the bash TD day? So then the probability of TD hitting the lottery and sharing it with his "friends" is nil, zero, nada.|
|Jan-26-09|| ||Jim Bartle: Don't be silly. EVERY day is "Bash TD day."|
|Jan-26-09|| ||technical draw: Well you're all lucky I'm not smart enough to know how the ignore function works because you would then be deprived of my wit and wisdom.|
|Jan-26-09|| ||Travis Bickle: <technical draw: Is today the Chinese New Year or the bash TD day? So then the probability of TD hitting the lottery and sharing it with his "friends" is nil, zero, nada.> You got it all wrong TD. I was suggesting that your cranium was large because it has to be to support such large brain matter, equals a very very smart fellow!|
|Jan-26-09|| ||technical draw: <Travis> Ok, you're back on my lottery list. I'm close to perfecting my lottery system that will bring me untold wealth and fame. Somehow the numbers don't want to cooperate with me for now but they'll get in line soon enough.|
|Jan-26-09|| ||benjinathan: Is Chinese New Year's Day more important or is Chinese New Year's Eve more important?|
|Jan-26-09|| ||benjinathan: I am a minor leonard cohen fan, but I really like to listen to him speak.|
Once I was on a long drive in the middle of the night and I heard an interview with some guy on what I thought was NPR, but may not have been. It was great.
Anyway, I looked for it, couldn't find it, but found this:
It was on the same promotional tours and touches on the same themes as the one I heard.
|Jan-26-09|| ||Jim Bartle: I could say the same about Jethro Tull. The music is nice, but I just love listening to Ian Anderson.|
The first time I saw them, at Fillmore West, I kept waiting for the songs to end so Anderson could continue his hilarious story of why they'd missed their scheduled performance the night before. (He had an intestinal bug.)
|Jan-26-09|| ||technical draw: Well just like thousands of others I got my pink slip today and.... it goes just great with my red dress!...wait a minute what site is this,..oops!|
|Jan-26-09|| ||eightbyeight: Hey guys, check this out. You won't find the game in the database, but it's still very interesting.|

|Jan-26-09|| ||Phony Benoni: <Travis Bickle: <Phony Benoni...could you give me a high rated GM for each type of player, defensive, positional, and strategical.>|
Can't do it. I never generalize.

|Jan-26-09|| ||WhiteRook48: from page 3222 <patzerofpatzers> I don't know the answer to that. I'm not a positional player. I'm a patzer myself but I like the game very much.|
|Jan-26-09|| ||A.G. Argent: <Travis Bickle>< Mr. Finger-on the-pulse-of-culture> Dear Mr. Pulse, I have a question that has haunted and vexed me for years. Nobody has been able to help me. You are my last resort. The question is: what is another name for Thesaurus? Yer pal, A.G.|

|Jan-26-09|| ||technical draw: <what is another name for Thesaurus?>|
