I have made the song Stop the War for Opium, and I was in kind of @#$% list by the finnish police already. And then I did also some street art about a weed smoking social worker, after which the security threats against my person reached such levels that I decided to declare being 718 mentioned in the manuscript Liber AL. I wanted to know a little bit about quantum physics in my youth, and I did, and then I was like of, whatever, I don't feel like knowing more. Now I am trying to dig into the concept of scientific truth because there is something deeply wrong with modern medicine, and economics too.

I have also developed my own chess variation which I call Ichess or Ishakki. It has two rule alternations, basically.

1. Player can take his own pieces or pawns. That is a square occupied by players own pieces (not the King, naturally) can be occupied in players turn by another of his pieces when it would have the right to move there and the piece previously in that square is removed from the board.

2. Provided a player has less than 16 pieces and less than 8 pawns and the rank in question has a vacant square, he can use his move to create a new pawn to either first or eight rank depending on color. The first move of the new pawn is one step forward (when a player uses another move for that) and from second and seventh rank the normal exceptions apply.

   Sep-18-17 Blackburne vs A Crowley, 1894 (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: After reading from Crowley's Confessions his description of Blackburn, for example symptoms of alcoholism, I thought that maybe the maternalny named Beast was unkind on purpose. However, after I later read about an incident or a series of incidents of violence between ...
   Sep-16-17 O Seuss vs H Hurme, 1969 (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: I'll explain the pun to non finnish speakers. "Voi vainolaisen hurmehella peittää maan" goes the known military tune Porilaisten marssi. There hurme means blood, but it is a word not used often now.

Ilkka Salonen: Yeah, ok. I was looking at the board the wrong way. As in g6 is not a legal move, obviously. I am somewhat worried of the possibility of fake chess though, and thus my feeling of embarrassment is mixed with that of relief too.

Ilkka Salonen: United States is more and more copying the faults of late Soviet Union? This time a chess player can leave the country for an important tournament. Does anybody know the details?
   Aug-21-17 E Korchmar vs A Poliak, 1931 (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: I think black just fails to play c5 in the opening. (after white's move 9 for example)
   Jul-27-17 Milner-Barry vs M Haygarth, 1959 (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: I suspect 11. Bc4 might be better than c4. White of course has some awkwardness in his king placement, a price to pay for his king's gambit, I suppose.
   Jul-01-17 Le Quang Liem (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: Le's current rating is higher than the one the article erroneously claims as his best. He's playing in the World Open in Philadelphia right now against Andrew Tang. How come Chessgames isn't covering World Open by the way? Has it lost so much in prestige, reaching the 45th ...
   Jul-01-17 FIDE Grand Prix Geneva (2017) (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: Well, where are all the statistical computing interested people? Maybe creating a statistical model for each players possibilities for qualification to the two top spots and to the Candidates is already possible? Or, it would be more than a guess at this point. Mamedyarov has ...
   Jun-07-17 London vs Paris, 1834 (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: Is this the same London Chess Club with whom Staunton had differences during the tournament in 1851?
   May-15-17 FIDE Grand Prix Moscow (2017) (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: When are the games coming to I am at my downstairs bar, which has a pretty crappy computer, but still works. Waiting for the results to come? I wonder how much impotence plays part in capitalist decission making other wise too.
