The games are real, and "Odd Lie" is a real person's name (which presumably doesn't mean anything funny in the native Norwegian).

TouchÚ, my dear <valiant>.

That was indeed a brave and daring attack (No Odd Lie).

  Count Wedgemore: <beatgiant: (which presumably doesn't mean anything funny in the native Norwegian).>

'Odd' is a common name in Norway. Its original meaning is 'sharp edge'.

'Lie' is a very common Norwegian surname. It is a variation of the word 'li' which means a sloping grassy or forested hillside.

So yes, not particularly funny :)

Suggests most Norwegians, would believe, the "grassy" knoll gunman, a lie.

They're still "leftist leaders" just happen to head, corporations and media.

What English letter (or group of letters) would it sound like?

The only reason I ask, I've seen it in Carlsen's middle name.

Like the vowels in heard, burn, turd, her, etc.

  valiant: "Count Wedgemore: I think 'Swedish War Heroes' is even thinner."

<Georg Carl von D÷beln (29 April 1758 ľ 16 February 1820) was a Swedish friherre (baron), Lieutenant General and war hero.

As a lieutenant, D÷beln took part in Gustav III's Russian War and was shot in the head at the Battle of Porrassalmi. The wound did not heal properly and he was forced to wear a black silken bandanna for the rest of his life. During the operation he stayed awake and wrote about it while looking at the whole process with the help of a mirror.

He then rapidly advanced to colonel and took part in the Finnish War. On 13 September 1808, he led the Swedish troops in the Battle of Jutas. For this, he would become legendary as the main hero of the war. His reputation was further enhanced when Johan Ludvig Runeberg wrote his epic D÷beln at Jutas in the Finnish National Poem Fńnrik Stňls Sńgner (in Swedish).

He successfully led the Swedish retreat from the ┼land islands over the frozen Baltic sea. Having re-organized his troops, he engaged Russian forces which ultimately stopped a planned attack on the Swedish capital, Stockholm.> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georg...

  Diademas: Hi there <valiant>

I don't think you should take the <Count>'s remark as anything else than some friendly banter between two (usually) good neighbors.
When I and the <Count> grew up, there were a hole range of stupid jokes poking fun of our neighbors. Including the one about the Swedish War Heroes. And as I noted:
<I'm afraid the 1939 book "500 Years of Norwegian War Heroes" didn't take up much space in the shelf.>

You shouldn't take it personal, or as an attack on your national pride. This is after all the <Odd Lie> page.
On the other hand: I kind of like it that you do, and to a certain extent you probably should.

<"For Norway!" said the Tr°nder and threw the Bergenser off the cliff.>

Threw the Bergenser off the cliff?
Now it's personal! :)

  Count Wedgemore: <"For Norway!" said the Tr°nder and threw the Bergenser off the cliff.>

It's a good start, but there's so many of them.

Dear <valiant>, I second what <Diademas> said. That silly joke about Swedish War Heroes was probably something that emerged during, or in the aftermath of WW2. If the joke was about the thin book called 'Swedish WW2 Heroes' it would at least have some sense (even though an entire chapter should be dedicated to the magnificent Raoul Wallenberg).

The irony is, and you've already provided some links, there are a lot more Swedish War Heroes than Norwegian throughout History. After all, Sweden was a major European power back in the day, and involved in major military campaigns and battles, much more so than we Norwegians were. For each 'Tordenskiold', I'm sure you could find three 'von D÷beln'..(no Odd Lie) :=

I grew up not far from the border, and have close ties to your country. I love Sweden and the Swedish people. I dislike the way your political leadership has run things over the last few years, but hey, that's politics. Sweden is one of the most wonderful countries in the world (again, no Odd Lie, and my apologies for so much seriousness on the Odd Lie page).

All the best from me to you, <valiant>.

Sep-15-19  technical draw: <wtpy> < Huey is as close as we've come. So far.>

I own this page <w>. You have to pay a $20 user fee to, uh, use my page.

However since you posted correctly about Huey Long I will deem your user fee paid.

All others on this page better cough up that 20 or else.

Sep-23-19  technical draw: I haven't been wasting my time since I left chessgames. In fact I have been doing good things. Why just last February I donated a kidney. Of course the person I took it from fought tooth and nail but I managed to rip it out and take it to the hospital just in time.

I might donate a liver next. But everyone I know is a boozer so I probably won't get a good one. The altruistic life is a lonely one.
