Favorite word on a forum:


The great Maria Callas in the sextet from Lucia de Lammermoor. (Well, Maria Callas and 5 other great singers):

Brahms Violin Concerto w/Hillary Hahn:

The greatest musical talent of the 20th century was female. Probably the name is unknown to many. Her name:

Nadia Boulanger

Carlos Gardel:

"If I forget thee, O Jerusalem,
let my right hand forget her cunning
If I do not remember thee,
let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth;
if I prefer not (an undivided) Jerusalem above my chief joy..."

Technical draw is a fictional character living in the collective vision of chess who has little relationship to the real technical draw; a neurotic and insecure figure obsessively clinging to the promise of power and wealth as if it were the only meaning in his life.

"When You have a brilliant mind you have a special obligation"

"I must believe that something extraordinary is possible" -Jennifer Connelly from A Beautiful Mind.

technical draw: <BP> You said this back on Sept 5th: <Clearly, segregation does not automatically imply racism.> I agree and when I catch up reading the rest of the posts I might add my own opinion. I lived through the Jim Crow era so I have personal experience that I can use.

technical draw: A very interesting and fun tournament so far. Aronian looks like he might win it, So is still in the running, Rapport might surprise, a Chinese GM might be the next world champion, and old Chucky cannot be discarded just yet (but almost). It's been a worthwhile experience. ...

  technical draw: A little biblical Mandela effect. There is no such story in the bible called "the good Samaritan". Of course people will argue that there is and they have read it and that it's a very famous story.

Well read it again (what ever you thought was "the Good Samaritan") and you'll see you are a victim of the Mandela effect.

Nov-19-17  Mr. President: Think again, "<positionalgenius>".

I've "wrestled" with this for quite some time.

If you only partially believe it,
it's a "Half Nelson."

  technical draw: Well the original "Most Interesting man in the World" is retiring and they already picked a substitute. I was passed over again. The guy they picked doesn't look interesting at all. Fact is he looks like a geek with pimples from high school.

And I grew the best goatee in the world but Maria came and blew it away and they said a beardless man is uninteresting. Blleeech, what do they know?

"Stay thirsty my friends"

(and I can say it with a real Spanish accent).

I will reserve judgment until I find out the name of the horse he rode in on.

  technical draw: TD's stuff I should have known #281:

<The Haiphong Incident occurred on November 23, 1946 when the French cruiser Suffren bombarded the Vietnamese coastal city of Haiphong overnight, killing 6,000 Vietnamese people.>

6,000 civilians dead in one incident. I should have known that.

  technical draw: 2017 has been a terrible year. My daughter died. I now have rabbinic authority to say a Hebrew prayer for her: For Luani Bat Torah:

אֵל מָלֵא רַחֲמִים שׁוֹכֵן בַּמְּרוֹמִים, הַמְצֵא מְנוּחָה נְכוֹנָה עַל כַּנְפֵי הַשְּׁכִינָה בְּמַעֲלוֹת קְדוֹשִׁים וטְהוֹרִים כְּזוֹהַר הָרָקִיעַ מַזְהִירִים (אֶת נִשְׁמַת (פלוני בן פלוני ,שֶׁהָלַכָה לְעוֹלָמה בַּעֲבוּר שֶׁנָדְבוּ צְדָקָה בְּעַד הַזְכָּרַת נִשְׁמָתה .בְּגַן עֵדֶן תְּהֵא מְנוּחָתה לָכֵן בַּעַל הָרַחֲמִים ,יַסְתִּירֵהוּ בְּסֵתֶר כְּנָפָיו לְעוֹלָמִים ,וְיִצְרֹר בִּצְרוֹר הַחַיִּים אֶת נִשְׁמָתה ה' הוּא נַחֲלָתוֹ, וְיָנוּחַ ,בְּשָׁלוֹם עַל מִשְׁכָּבוֹ וְנֹאמַר אָמֵן

  technical draw: Doing the research for my daughter I discovered that my wife is Jewish without going through a conversion process.

This may sound like silly things to some but you have to be able to see the big picture to understand why this is important.

  technical draw: Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. No need for Trump to say anything. Jerusalem has been the capital of Israel for 4,000 years. No amount of speeches or bombs will change that.

Balanced budgets exist.
Doesn't mean we're going to see one anytime soon.

Congratulation on avoiding the death penalty. I've heard that can really smart.

  technical draw: <Boomie> I think they've retired old Sparkie.
Dec-11-17  Boomie: <technical draw: old Sparkie.>

When Ted Bundy was introduced to Old Sparky, cheers broke out at the chess club. He had caused dreadful suffering in Seattle. A friend quipped that a restaurant had offered Beef Bundy au Jus, which came with a 9 volt battery.
