  Richard Taylor: Well the pun was totally lost on me. I did do two papers in Spanish in the 90s but I didn't keep up with it and I don't know the reference...

[Some minutes later]...But with the aid of Wikipedia all is clear! I had seen an indirect reference to Juarez and Maximillian in the book 'Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee' [which I had for 47 years but hadn't read until this month I started it, inter alia] where Dee Brown gives short "what is happening in 1862" (or some similar date) and so on at the start of each chapter.

In the 1860s in NZ the King Movement united or started to unite Maori under a King. This was called 'The King Movement'. This alarmed the [land hungry and often racist] settlers and local Governor and the new Parliament, and the British Government who sent troops who built a road from Auckland south and the Waikato Land wars began in about 1870. And in the mid 1850s I think the first actual NZ Government in the form of a Parliament happened in that time. In 1865 Lincoln was assassinated by the (quite popular) stage actor Booth the actor in a bizarre fashion. He shot Lincoln, then jumped down and delivered an oration on tyranny or something, as if he were Hamlet, then he fled...

All these events happening around the world all the time...Including Gulko beating or "cinking" a woman called Maia, although this took place some time later.

I knew the 'thinko' 'cinco' difference (pronunciation of the c in Spanish) between Spanish in Europe and the South Americas although I suppose that varies from place to place. Amazing the trivia the, or my, mind tends tediously to amass...

The game of course is irrelevant.

  offramp: White actually built a WALL. But at the last minute he tore down his WALL and overran the unsuspecting black pieces, leading to a massacre of all the pieces on the other side of the WALL.

  HeMateMe: B-f6##. Great pun. Looks like it was also used four years ago.

Gulko must have defected a year or two later. He was competing in the USA championship in the early 80s.

People don't always remember that they posted on a game years ago.

May-05-17  catlover: <offramp><White actually built a WALL.>

:-) So what you're saying is, that white built a wall and black paid for it.

  WannaBe: <thegoodanarchist> I can't remember what I posted in 2013, I have to use google translate to interpret myself.

Gotta be a first.

May-05-17  Caissanist: < In Europe of course we say theenko for 5 so I didn't get it at first.>

So, when Europeans write English do they still spell words like "color" and "hiccup" wrong? Perhaps you guys will stop that two years from now.

  AylerKupp: <WannaBe> No, I have the same problem and do the same thing. But every time I use Google Translate to try to interpret what I said, it crashes.

Of course, as I get older my short term memory gets worse, so it's hard to remember 2013, much less what I said.

Well, I remember 2013. It's the number that follows 2011, right? That reminds me when I was a kid smoking dubious substances in the park one night with some friends, there was a swim meet at the near-by pool, where they kept announcing the number of laps on the PA system every minute or so. I suggested it was a local math competition to see who could count the highest: 35!...... 36! (BRAVO!!!!)...........37! (don't give up now!)

And while it was going down, the band played "mayonnaise have seen the glory of the coming of the lord..."

  Domdaniel: <Richard> - < He shot Lincoln, then jumped down and delivered an oration on tyranny or something>

... he said "Sic semper tyrannis":
not Latin for "Sick of simpering tyrants".

  Domdaniel: The puns, the references, the trivia are fine... but this is also a beautiful game.

Exquis!

I kinda like it when I come across a post I made from 7~12 or so years ago. It's like the reverse of future me visiting present me.

Gak! I cannot remember 2013 AT ALL!!

2011 - I hated my boss and my job.
2012 - I hated my boss and wanted him to have a car wreck.
2014 - I moved for work. My new boss made my old boss look like a saint.

2013 - What the heck happened???

Oh wait, I finally remember two things from 2013. Now four things. Now six. It is gradually coming back to me. It was a pretty good year, actually.

May-05-17  catlover: It's no big deal to forget and post something similar to what you posted a few years ago. What's embarrassing would be to post something that contracts your earlier post.

  morfishine: Well <35...Be6> was obviously an horrendous slip

So, are all the GOTD based on horrific bloopers?

Or pathetic attempts at humor emanating from sub-par games?

Or senseless and infantile rhyme that leaves our diverse community shaking their heads?

Or graspless word-play that leaves all of humanity gasping for air?

The world would like to know

That wouldn't be so bad, on the contrary, it would show that we're capable of evolving instead of being stuck in the same mental rut forever and ever (gee, I wonder what made me think of that?)

You mean, like when you write <will not> in 2005 and in 2017 you write <won't>?

Yeah, that *would* be embarrassing!
