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.

Ilkka Salonen: Sure, we all love MC here at FIDE zone 1.3. However, he maybe wouldn't want to comment on our expressions of affection.

Ilkka Salonen: Good choice of pun, Chessgames, I feel, because it is good time to remind of the tragedy and insanity of poor Morphy, who lost his love, Dixie and will to play chess. This time the world champion contender seems quite sane, but naturally the US does not.

Ilkka Salonen: I saw you, Walt Whitman, childless, lonely old grubber, poking among the meats in the refrigerator and eyeing the grocery boys. I heard you asking questions of each: Who killed the pork chops? What price bananas? Are you my Angel?

Ilkka Salonen: 26. ...Bh7 comes to mind. But after 27.Bd3 black is still in trouble.

Ilkka Salonen: I am just making this comment to create a link to my own profile, because it looks like took away games of Jorma Äijälä, possibly due to my speculation of infanticide among ambulance drives and US air force.

Ilkka Salonen: "There ought to be a law against you coming around." C'mon he hasn't done that bad at Wijk aan Zee, has he?

Ilkka Salonen: Anniversary of the death of Bobby Fischer is coming soon and I thought I could mention some facts about him, since lots of people like to label him crazy. I don't mean I would agree with everything he said. It's just there are some things to consider. Fischer was a person, who

Ilkka Salonen: A player who gets a mediocre result from a tournament can still usually expect further invitations. But if a player is last of close to that often, there's chance that top level invitations become more scarce. For players this can be quite a big financial issue. If one just ...
