Welcome to The Cirque du Boomie where the dancers will kick your teeth out and you have unlimited credit in the casino.


Feb-05-2010 - The Don said so long ago that in 5 years The Cirque would be totally legitimate. Today I see a thriving casino business and fan dancers from Yonkers. Good times!



This is the forum.
The Cirque,
On an average day, people go about their business.
When they get out of line I go to work.
I carry a badge.

We were working out of Tactics and Swindles. My partner's name is Jessie. My name's Boomie.

Given that a thought dies shortly after birth, the writer is a mortician whose job is to make it smile.

The unexamined position is not worth playing.

Play ideas not moves.

A beautiful solution for which there is no problem.

Boomie: I was walking down the sidewalk at Lone Pine and saw GM Shamkovich walking toward me. He may have had an adjourned game because he was absorbed in thought. He was so absorbed, in fact, that he walked into a lamp post. Almost without losing a step, he proceeded as before.

"In Italy, for thirty years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love. They had five hundred years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock."

Indeed it is. The answer has already been given by the great geneticist. A bear claw is in the mail.

<Teem> I'm impressed. This <Gregor> is no slouch, that's for sure. I had heard that quote before, and I've seen the movie twice, but I would never have made the connection.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Boomie: <Jesharoo>

Gregor is indeed up to whatever gawd forsaken task we give him. Curiously, the geneticist's name was Gregor Johann Mendel, so this must be his younger, smarter brother.

  OhioChessFan: You need not chase down the Zapruder film was altered silliness. For starters, 8 spectators identified by name were filming in Dealey Plaza that day, along with 4 newsmen in the motorcade who were jumping in and out of their cars throughout the parade. I won't even lead you by the hand down that pathway, but a reasonable person should be able to see the insurmountable problems therein for the alterationists.

As much as everyone would like some explanation that would make sense, I'm afraid that narcissistic SOB acted alone. I was hoping they would trace it back to Marcello but no such luck. At least he had some semblance of a motive. Oh, well.

Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Yes, it was Oswald alone. All kinds of people had a motive. That comes with being the President. As for the conspiracy nuts,they point to the head snap in the Zapruder film as the single most important reason to think there was a conspiracy, and then point to other less significant matters as proof it was altered. Apparently, these sophisticated plotters altered the film, but didn't change <the single most important> part!
