|Jul-28-17|| ||ChessHigherCat: 43...g4 looks like a blunder, since it allows (or even forces) the trade of queens, but in fact there were no good moves: |
Good doomsday puzzle: 43... Black to play and lose no matter what.

You left out one.
|Jul-28-17|| ||Ironmanth: Intriguing game!|
|Jul-28-17|| ||morfishine: <thegoodanarchist> There's more than one that <offramp> left out: Spain & Canada|
and of course, there's a Toledo, Texas, but that one doesn't count since every city ever municipalized in the history of mankind has been duplicated in Texas...
|Jul-28-17|| ||offramp: Not Paris, surely. Not <ChessHigherCat>'s beautiful Paris?|
|Jul-28-17|| ||ChessHigherCat: <Offramp> Wim Wenders is rumored to have spawned a bastard child by that name in the Lone Star State.|

|Jul-28-17|| ||ChessHigherCat: <offramp: It looks like I was todelly wrong!>
Toledoly! Anyway, Paris Texas doesn't really exist (despite what the residents may say to the contrary), the film title is really just a anagram of "Tax is rape!", which Wenders couldn't get by the censors otherwise.|
|Jul-28-17|| ||morfishine: <ChessHigherCat> Of course, Paris, Tx exists: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paris...|
Coming from Abilene, Tx, I know my Texas cities, all 1,216 of'm lol
The funniest thing in Paris, Tx is the 70-foot tall replica Eiffel Tower with the giant red cowboy hat bolted on top lol
|Jul-28-17|| ||ColeTrane: Obvio guerra a Paris TX and a Tomato Ohio.... Damn auto correct. Toledo OH. Personally, spent a day getting drunk on red wine in the Toledo Espaņa... Lots of Texans here these days. San Antonio and Austin are modern day Boom Towns according to Forbes|
|Jul-28-17|| ||ColeTrane: To Morph: I knew a guy in Austin at the chess club/store on N. Lamar St. who represented FL gators...learned some gambits from him too. That you?|
|Jul-28-17|| ||takchess: A rather famous sign in Maine leading to Maine towns.

The main difference in the bible-belt Paris is that the girls probably dance the can't-can't instead of the can-can.
I just remember visiting some drive-through "safari park" near El Paso as a kid with my parents, where an ostrich tried to reproduce with our rental car and we found some nice mechanic to fix the dents for only $50.
|Jul-28-17|| ||thegoodanarchist: I am QUITE CERTAIN (quite certain) that we ALL must give <offramp> recognition for writing something.|
Indeed, hearty recognition. For at least writing <something> about numerous geographical locations.
Well done, <offramp>!!!!!

Ah, yes! You've reminded me of my lovely visit to Phuket, Texas. Those were the days....
Unfortunately, the car broke down in Dniepropetrovsk, Texas. We got stuck in this darn bed & breakfast that you wouldn't believe...
