TheFocus: Once Flohr got the open f-file, the win was just a matter of time; the also open g-file proving that in a good position, good moves and opportunities come a'calling. His minor pieces were better than Richter's were, and he did not capture them, preferring to minimize their use ...

  parisattack: 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars in the universe, 75% of which with 1-3 planets.

How many stars in the known universe?

Approximately 10,375 PUs.

  TheFocus: Happy February 15th!!

Last night, I gave my girlfriend left over Halloween candy with her Valentine's card.

She asked me why and I replied, " Because you're my boo!"

So this is what it feels like sleeping in the doghouse.
