Hi! I am a 36 year old chess player from Michigan, USA. I am an average player (USCF 1600-1700). I like chess, guitar, reading, and many other things.

micartouse: Objective morality sounds crappy. Morality is morality - the old model of common sense and basic empathy still works just fine and will remain the default choice for most people.

micartouse: <Maatalkko: I do think it's an unusually humble comment by Caruana. It flies in the face of the usual logic that chess players are constantly getting stronger, if the current #2 says he is "not even close" to the #2 of 20 years ago. I wish someone could question him about it ...

micartouse: If musicians get very political, there is usually a musical backlash as happened in the 70's. People want to hear the full spectrum of their emotions in song, and social issues aren't a big enough component of most people's daily thought process. If all music were socially ...

micartouse: As is often the case before a big chess event, I will be without internet for a couple months starting today. Hurts to watch RedShield's countdown, but I know all of the contributions I'd be making to the kibitzing such as superstitious speculation, giving advice to legendary ...

micartouse: <visayanbraindoctor: Perhaps it's mainly to rest himself so as not to get a flare up of his arthritis right in the middle of the Candidates; maybe to prep the Kasparov way; or both.> Or a third possibility to follow through with one of the earlier thoughts in your post, he ...

micartouse: <RedShield> You don't think Shirov had a good excuse for emotions running high and talking a little trash? I think he more than paid for it.

micartouse: <keypusher: The reason we have to look at matches that were played a decade or so ago, of course, is that top human GMs won't play matches against engines any more. At least not in public.> Exactly. And not necessarily because they're embarrassed - there just isn't a point ...

micartouse: OK I think for the next year question, it's 2133. We can't make a month less than 12, and it has too many days.
