WannaBe: Did not know these: 1. It's illegal to catch a ball with any thing other than your hand and/or glove. Otherwise it's a 3-base penalty. 3-base!! 7.05b 2. In case of catcher's interference (E2), the opposing manager can accept the error, or take the play on the field, (if there was ...

WannaBe: Chinese names (and at times, Vietnamese) are easy to distinguish first/family names. Japanese name can be a whole different animal. (But luckily, I work with/for a company that is Japanese, but I am Chinese). Ichiro Suzuki is a perfect example, if you are familiar with motorcycles, ...

  WannaBe: Zenefits announced mass layoff!! (45%)

Premium Chessgames Member
  diceman: <mass layoff!!>

They're closing down churches?

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: After being down by 19 pts in the first half, Ucla comes back and escape at home with a win over Oregon by 3.


Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: A bit more on Zenefits:

The story isn't as "juicy" as Theranos, (no ex-secretary of state Schultz vs grandson) but still fascinating.

  WannaBe: Anyhow, the local Safeway had Jonah crab on sale (never had them), and found out they are from East Coast U.S.

Comparing them to Dungeness crab of the West Coast, Dungeness are far better, meatier and less hassle to eat. Much softer shell and longer legs, too.

  WannaBe: IoT, computers, smart vending machines, internet connected devices, what can go wrong!?

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Once again, we're doomed, <DOOOOOOOOOOM>'d

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: First, people's Nanny Cam got hacked, the baby monitors (walkie talkie) got hacked, now a doll have been declared illegal (in Germany).

IoT, Bluetooth, internet, technology, what can go wrong!?

  WannaBe: Need a little (bit of) help...

Who is the woman next to Janis Joplin at the 0:41 mark of this video?

Thanks in advance.

  tpstar: A: Grace Slick

Premium Chessgames Member
  saffuna: When the truth is found to be lies, all the joy within you dies.

Grace Slick at Altamont, as the crowd calls for Jefferson Airplane to start playing again: "We'll play as soon you give us our lead singer back."

That was Marty Balin, who had jumped into the crowd to help a guy being hammered by Hell's Angels. He was knocked out and hadn't returned to the stage.

  WannaBe: Thank you!!

  WannaBe: Best Simpsons, (EVER), it had M. Carlsen, and chess, and opening name (Budapest Gambit), and it even had the board's white square in the lower right corner!!

And it had M. Carlsen, and old fashioned chess clock, and Homer doing a simul at Moe's.

And it had M. Carlsen!!

Did I mention that M. Carlsen's in this episode??

Premium Chessgames Member

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Wow, LA Kings acquire goalie Bishop (free agent after this season) from Tampa Bay, I can't say I agree with this move, as Budaj (traded to TB) filled in admirably in place of injured J. Quick (since returned).
