WannaBe: <Saniyat24> Usually 3 minor pieces, or 2 rooks for Queen is considered even. So, I'd say no. And point (system) wise, Q is 9 pts, minor piece is 3, and rook is 5...

  WannaBe: Oh, freakin' Capital A, just saw the trailer for Deadpool 2, and I almost died laughing.

If you have not seen the first Deadpool (No, not the Eastwood movie), and don't appreciate/like the humour. Well, I'm sorry.

The trailer for Deadpool 2 is absolutely LMFFFAO.

No, serious(ly), you get to see his ass in the trailer... Maybe its the stunt double, in which case, it was me.

  WannaBe: Another movie that I am looking forward to, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, will be funny as heck and the soundtrack's great.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Psssst, don't tell <Switch>, or <MostlyAverageJoe>, <7krzem7>, <Sastre>, or <shalgo> about this...

Or maybe that teacher is <MostlyAverageJoe>... They'll probably crack it faster than anyone!

  WannaBe: Holy Guacamole, Rupert Murdoch have reported(ly) sold his $125M, that's MILLION stake in Theranos back to the company for $1.


Guess he is competing with Bill Ackman on who can lose more money, but as of right now, Bill's got him beat.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: In an interesting twist, Theranos promise to double your share of stocks if you promise to not sue.

Huh?? Who came up with that idea?

Premium Chessgames Member


Interesting name. Do you think his parents named him after their favorite TV show, <The Sopranos>, but had to shorten it after he was born because of a copyright complaint?

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Theranos is the company name, owner/CEO, founder is Elizabeth Holmes.
