Right, User: prime rib is not the kind of talkative member. ;) But I found his opening collections thematically interesting. So it was mainly meant as placeholder mark/memory aid for me.

Well, the joy is when we sense the pleasure ...

Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Yes, you could tell he was doing that to help, you know, actually play chess. Not all that common around here. Anyway, it was a pretty impressive setup.

  whiteshark: Mr. Ziegler, in your new book you write: <"The Third World War against the Peoples of the Third World has long since begun."> What do you mean by that?

Jean Ziegler : "The 23 specialized agencies of the United Nations must submit their annual reports to the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations every June. And in these reports it is clear what I am talking about. The reports show who are the victims of <contaminated water, hunger, wars, climate damage and epidemics, etc.> They are all people who live in the Third World countries. From these reports it becomes clear that we are talking about <a victim of 53 million people in a year!> In the Second World War a total of 57 million people died, both civilians and soldiers.

These two figures alone show that we are dealing with a world war against the Third World countries."

  tpstar: Wide screen!

<whiteshark> A brief major piece endgame but with a historical twist at the end = Capablanca vs G A Thomas, 1919

Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: Thanks <tpstar> - how could I have overlooked this game?

<Wide screen! > Indeed, when my pc crashed the other day my son simply ordered a wide screen at the same time.

What a different universe... to view things oblong, not square!
