I have been playing chess for most of my life.Due to lack of competition and other factors,I never progressed beyond the novice level. I am however a big fan of the game and its history.

My favorite players are:Morphy,Lasker,Tal,Fischer,Kasparov,and Alekhine.

My favorite Chess movies are:Searching For Bobby Fischer AND Knight Moves. I also liked the Columbo episode that dealt with chess.(It was called:"The Most Dangerous Game"

My Favorite Movies are :GODFATHER ,The Fly,DEEP IMPACT,FIGHT CLUB, FINAL DESTINATION 3,and Friday the 13th Part VIII-Jason Takes Manhattan My favorite TV shows are CSI (all version),The SOPRANOS,FRASIER,SEINFELD,FAMILY GUY,and FRIENDS (ON DVD)

In Loving Memory of Seth Coy-9/7/1989 to 7/29/2009-he came early,left far too soon.

  technical draw: <kevin86: Nobody has posted here all year. How sad! I guess I'll have to.> Reasons why:
1. It's not corn season
2. You don't lend an ear to what is said.
3. I don't want you to think I'm stalking you.
4. Only those ranked colonel and above can post here. 5. Iowa backwards is awol...

  kevin86: Three punny quotes related to ears (and hearing)

1"Friends,Romans,countrymen- lend me your ears" : Julius Caesar

2 "I'm all ears":H Ross Perot,1992 presidential campaign.

3 "Do you hear me now?" :Verizon commercial.


If you merge Hawkeyes and Buckeyes together you get a bunch of crossed eyes from OHIOWA.

  YouRang: I hope that a year and 2 days isn't too long of a lapse to reply to someone's post :-)

<meloncio: <YouRang>< I heard that "Osco", when pronounced, is essentially as Spanish word that means "I vomit".> Yes, but not exactly. When pronoucing 'Osco', maybe it sounds like the Spanish word "asco", whose meaning is "loathing, disgust, revulsion". I like a lot this kind of funny stories. :-)>

Interesting that you *sort of* confirm the "Osco" name thing, although snopes dismissed it:

Perhaps the name "Osco" resembles "asco", which means revulsion, but this still wasn't the (stated) reason for the failure of Osco drug stores. Either way, changing the name to Osco was a dumb idea.

  YouRang: Oh yes, we were discussing marketing blunders...

-- The company Electrolux, a Scandinavian company that manufactures and sells vacuum cleaners, first attempted to market in the United States in the 1970s. Their chosen slogan was, "Nothing sucks like an Electrolux."

-- A German consumer goods company that tried to market and sell toilet paper and other paper goods in the United States named their goods, "Krapp."

-- When Pepsi tried to use its slogan, "Come Alive with Pepsi" in Japan, the translation came to mean, "Bring back your dead ancestors with Pepsi."

-- Frank Perdue's chicken slogan, "It takes a strong man to make a tender chicken" was translated into Spanish as "It takes an aroused man to make a chicken affectionate."

Sep-26-07  willyfly: I am not FREE - I am affordable, reasonably priced Willy and I am guessing that the Fly you are referring to is the movie where the guy becomes part Fly while experimenting with a transporter device. FREE might be a third cousin twice removed or a second cousin thrice removed. Actually the name comes from a song - "Will he go round in circles? Will he fly high like a bird up in the sky?" (I needed to think of a name for an email account a long time ago.) As for the necktie? It just tells what kind of a guy I am. I am a croupier - that is - a dealer in a casino. So - as you can imagine I get teased a lot for the Willy name. It's all for fun. Thanks for stopping by my profile.
Oct-17-07  FICSwoodpusher: I guess <kevin86> plays the cornstalk defence (1. e4 a5).
Oct-23-07  ketchuplover: I like your favorite players :)

  kevin86: My 4500th post goes to me:Happy Birthday-glad to share the day with Arnold Palmer,who is 79 today.

I could have a birthday cake,but it would be a fire hazard.

A chess position that makes many a player quit,due to its complexity.
