DrCurmudgeon: <Ladolcevita> Gosh, I nope not. That would mean that the peoples of the United States and New Zealand are all part of the human race, and we're bashing each other over the head for nothing.

DrCurmudgeon: The fact they have avoided contacting us shows there is intelligent life in the universe.

DrCurmudgeon: I see "It's a Wonderful Life" is on tonight. Interesting film. A banker is about to go under, but the taxpayers chip in to save him from the consequences of his actions. Truly a story for out times.

DrCurmudgeon: <WhiteRook48> You have got to be joking. Here's the position after 26...Qd7 27.Qxf5 Rf8: [DIAGRAM] Perhaps if you actually look at the position instead of spewing out another mindless twitter, you might be able to see the mate in two. With a mighty effort, you might ...

DrCurmudgeon: <mistreaver: yeah Nigel loses to 13 year old girl.> Yeah, if it had been a 13 year old boy he wouldn't have been upset. But a girl? Why, he should give up chess! P.S. I'm being sarcastic. But don't mind me. I'm old, I'm tired, and my feet hurt.

DrCurmudgeon: Well, if we're going back in history, Euwe-Alekhine I was (15.5-14.5). And Lasker-Schlechter was kind of close too. But I think the statement referred to a series of matches. If that's correct, I think that the three Smyslov-Botvinnik matches, added together, were even closer ...
