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: I wonder if there is relation to famous (relatively) finnish occultist Vilho Kallio, whose group took action against extreme right movements in the 30s by placing body parts to a spring near Helsinki, and might have saved Finland from dictatorship, or from more crude such ...

Ilkka Salonen: "There ought to be a law against you coming around". Yeah, ok your pun is better I guess. (That's from Ballad of a thin man) I guess I'm just sad no finns made it to the World Cup this time, or weren't even close.

Ilkka Salonen: Can you do an anarchist pun about the anti-marshall sometime?
   Sep-08-19 Edinburgh vs London, 1824 (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: The English don't even have a legal body that could declare them independent in the event of the Brexit negotiations rendering the UK governance de facto tyranny upon them. I wonder how come such internationally exceptional underrepresentation can go unnoticed.

Ilkka Salonen: The timecontrol scheme seems to favor Nepomniatchi's swindle chess.

Ilkka Salonen: Do you mean to deprive Ahmed of any rational alternative and turn him into an extreme islamist with subsidizes too?
   Jun-20-19 M Matlakov vs Eljanov, 2013 (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: Yeah, for a finnish speaker it is easy to confuse kudos with kiitos, which means thank you. The effect of the communication is somewhat similar, but it has a different meaning, maybe something like "glory goes to".

Ilkka Salonen: I agree with Messiah that it would be time to update the photo. It seems like other players count in their heads that Carlsen winning benefits them economically and nobody has been too keen to beat him in a classical time control game lately.

Ilkka Salonen: Yeah. One could imagine James Bond playing sharp and tactical games, but that the writers would prefer the names of more positional or slow openings, because they sounded more fancy.Bond has lead many young minds astray, effectively rendering them incapable of realizing, WHAT ...

Ilkka Salonen: A very relevant pun in these times, when I feel the CIA might be exploiting the fact that US foreign policy is partly a geriatric case.
