  thegoodanarchist: <offramp: offramp: <catlover: "Don't mess with Texas" was once a publicity campaign to keep people in Texas from throwing trash on the side of the road. I'm told the campaign was quite successful.>

It was, AYPK, a hugely successful campaign.

In 1985 the Texas Street/Highways Interstate Tidying Service collected 286,994,034 items of "non-scheduled human-interfaced trash" from the streets of Texas.

In 1990 they collected just a single piece: a copy of Anatoly Karpov's <Learn From Your Defeats>.>

I heard it wasn't autographed.

  ColeTrane: <chesshighercat> thanks for calling out offramp he says a lot of garbage but just so anyone learning spanish knows the "teja" or plural form only refers to tiles or bricks on the roof/ceiling not the floor.

Let me refer you to this page:

Shirov vs Gelfand, 1993 (kibitz #13)

Aug-06-17  mrknightly: <ChessHigherCat> The definition of pun can also include a play on words.

"The humorous use of a word or phrase so as to emphasize or suggest its different meanings or applications, or the use of words that are alike or nearly alike in sound but different in meaning; a play on words."

In any case, CG does not seem to have a strict policy that every game title must be a perfect pun.

That would make sense because Texas is right above Mexico.

"The humorous use of a word or phrase so as to emphasize or suggest <its different meanings> or applications, or the use of words that are alike or nearly alike in sound <but different in meaning>;

The point is that Tejas and Texas have exactly <the same meaning>, and it doesn't strike me as funny but de gustibus non disputandum est and I never said it should be censured. If memory serves I said "wuddevuh", meaning "wuddevuh floats your boat"

Aug-06-17  catlover: <offramp> <That would make sense because Texas is right above Mexico.>

Lol!

By the way, I'm still looking for my missing copy of Karpov's "Learning from Your Defeats".

Aug-06-17  catlover: The irony of all the posts about "tejas" is that the player in question, Tejas Bakre, is not even Hispanic. In fact, he's not even Texan. He's from India (at least, according to posts on his CG page).

  offramp: <ChessHigherCat> & <catlover> I suppose you two cool cats know that you are only 1000km apart, as the chachalaca flies.

  ChessHigherCat: Aha, I stand corrected:
तेजस्, tejas, n. prestige.

In that case it's pronounced with an English j so it doesn't sound much like Texas but close enough. Well, I'll be horn-swaggled, aHiiilk, aHiiilk!

That chacalaca bird do some fancy flying then coz according to Mr Google Man dey be 2,663.8 km both twixt AND tween Mexico City and Costa Rica.

Aug-06-17  catlover: Actually, I currently live in Guatemala. So the chacalaca bird would be flying a bit closer to 1000 km.

So if you guys come to Guatemala, let me know and I'll take on a hike up an active volcano.

  ChessHigherCat: Well I have a profile page on another website that says I live in Panama City because of their troglodyte IP-locator and when I went back to the States I told my father's friend I was in CR and he said: No, your profile page says you live in Panama City! Aha, I said, you could have fooled me, they certainly disguise everything very well because I know Panama City and it doesn't look remotely similar!

That said, <catlover> mentioned he was a Chilango, but maybe now he lives in Guatemala. Let's try to figure out his exact address and blow his cover!

Okay, great, we're on our way!

Aug-06-17  catlover: <ChessHigherCat>, I remember that conversation...sorry about the misunderstanding. We were talking about a Mexican grandmaster and I was trying to say that he was a Chilango. I'm just a north American currently living in Guatemala.

<Let's try to figure out his exact address and blow his cover!> Lol! Use Google Earth and look for a house with lots of cats.

Aug-07-17  paavoh: <... Texas is right above Mexico>

ABOVE?? That's why the border wall will be so expensive, "covering" the entire state!

Aug-07-17  mrknightly: <ChessHighCat> De gustibus aut bene, aut nihil. Or, Alice may prefer,"If you don't know where you want to go, then it doesn't matter which road you take."

  ChessHigherCat: <mrknightly:> Don't try to milk it for more than it's worth, you were just as wrong as I was:

<ChessHigherCat:Less so if you know that Tejas is just the Spanish spelling of Texas.>

<mrknightly:>
<Think that's the point, amigo.>
