TheFocus: <Colonel Mort> would never condemn any action by Palestinians. It is as if they can do no wrong. I wonder what color the sky is on his world?

TheFocus: <MissScarlett> <Are you going to change <Baked a Lasker> (Alekhine vs Lasker, 1934) because it suggests that Alekhine may have desired cremating Lasker in an oven?> Only you would think that. It is funny and doesn't have a Nazi connotation.

TheFocus: <Had he been speaking in general, he could also have meant Sanuel Reshevsky, Larry Evans, or Robert Fischer.> Not Fischer. He only lost two games by running out of time. And Fischer wasn't playing in U.S. Opens by 1969.

TheFocus: <Many today would cite that as irrefutable evidence that Fischer was cheating.> I have made a phone call to <AJ> to begin an investigation. If Fischer is proven to have cheated, <AJ> Will be able to prove it. Look how he shamed Nakamura, who will forever be known ...

  TheFocus: Man, I lost every bet In Sync today.

Who would have thunk the Grandmasters would come out to fight?

  moronovich: Among cannibals they talk about a weddingceremony called "Swallow your bride".

I never dared to ask them for further explanation.

  TheFocus: In Hawaii, we say Aloha!

It can mean Hello. Good-bye. Love.

Say it to a girl, it would mean, "I love you."

If the girl is really hot, you say, "I lava you." - <TheFocus>.

  WannaBe: <TheFocus> What are you going to use the kalbi and fried rice for? Feed the pigeons?

  TheFocus: Fatten them up for pigeon adobo.

  TheFocus: <parisattack> We will eat kimchee and kalbi when you visit.

I will be out of state from Oct. 8-14. A little visit back to the home-grounds.

We'll start the evening at Green Castle on Ward, move on to Misty II and AkasSaka on Kapiolani, right next to where I used to work, then to Broadway and Butterfly on Kaheka. As, as the sun rises, we'll sneak up the Old Pali Road with Angie the Lotion Lady and Harmony.

That sounds fun. Alabama? I forgot the home-grounds...

Apparently "A meal for two with a terrible view" is not the accepted way to announce the number 69.
