Karposian: Javelin-catching is the world's most difficult sport. The chances of successfully catching a javelin in flight is minimal. Here is a guy who was able to catch one, though: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WK0...

Karposian: Thanks for another great contest, <lostemperor>. Looking forward already to Norway Chess in June! <WannaBe :(I blame my poor performance on Kramnik)> LOL, I myself blame Giri. I had him at 2nd and he ends up at 7th! I'm considering writing him a protest letter. In ...

Karposian: <ljfyffe: <The Darkling Thrush>> Thanks for the reminder of this beautiful poem, <ljfyffe>. Always a good idea to bring Hardy into the discussion :) The poem challenges the very idea that scientific and social progress improves the human condition. He observes ...

Karposian: <A.T: By the way, what is your favourite high score performance in top-flight chess? Mine is probably Karpov's 1994 triumph at Linares.> If I can pitch in, my personal favorite goes way back. I'd pick Capablanca's triumph in New York 1927. The quality of play was very high ...

Karposian: <Marmot PFL> It was like that in other countries as well back in the old days. Remember Admiral Nelson's famous words? <"England expects that every man will do his duty".> Ahh, those were the days..
