WannaBe: 40 years ago, (Feb. 25, 1977) a movie was released, and the world was never the same again. "Everybody is just on their feet screaming 'Kill Kill Kill'! This is hockey!" Guess I'll have to find time this weekend and watch it again.
   Feb-24-17 Odd Lie
WannaBe: I don't understand this, at the local watering hole, when customers are ready to leave, they always ask for La Quinta. Why are they going to a hotel? Don't they have a home to go to?

WannaBe: <> as other members have pointed out, that is his voice, as the credits rolled, Magnus is listed as guest voice.

WannaBe: Witches around the world will try to put a 'binding' spell on Trump. No, I'm not making this up. Instead of a feather, can I use a bucket of fried chicken? (If you don't get the reference, watch Major League...)

WannaBe: J. Peavy dealing with personal issues:
   Feb-23-17 FIDE Grand Prix Sharjah (2017) (replies)
WannaBe: To editors, would adding this link to each of the Grand Prix tournament page header be helpful?
   Feb-22-17 Biographer Bistro (replies)
WannaBe: <... Where is the White King?> King ran off with the Queen to the local pub to have a pint or two and party like it's 1599, if you get my *wink* drift.

You decide. =))

Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: You get what you pay for. I noticed you agree pretty much with the pros.

  WannaBe: After being on hold for two separate occasions, each over an hour long. I finally gave up in trying to contact SonicWALL support portal.

Not going to buy one of their products, ever again.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Technology, what can go wrong. Seriously...

Premium Chessgames Member

Anyway, we're playing two, one of each colour!! =))

  WannaBe: Zenefits announced mass layoff!! (45%)

Premium Chessgames Member
  diceman: <mass layoff!!>

They're closing down churches?

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: After being down by 19 pts in the first half, Ucla comes back and escape at home with a win over Oregon by 3.


Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: A bit more on Zenefits:

The story isn't as "juicy" as Theranos, (no ex-secretary of state Schultz vs grandson) but still fascinating.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Anyhow, the local Safeway had Jonah crab on sale (never had them), and found out they are from East Coast U.S.

Comparing them to Dungeness crab of the West Coast, Dungeness are far better, meatier and less hassle to eat. Much softer shell and longer legs, too.

  WannaBe: IoT, computers, smart vending machines, internet connected devices, what can go wrong!?

Premium Chessgames Member

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: First, people's Nanny Cam got hacked, the baby monitors (walkie talkie) got hacked, now a doll have been declared illegal (in Germany).

IoT, Bluetooth, internet, technology, what can go wrong!?

Premium Chessgames Member

Who is the woman next to Janis Joplin at the 0:41 mark of this video?

Thanks in advance.

  tpstar: A: Grace Slick

Premium Chessgames Member
  saffuna: When the truth is found to be lies, all the joy within you dies.

Grace Slick at Altamont, as the crowd calls for Jefferson Airplane to start playing again: "We'll play as soon you give us our lead singer back."

That was Marty Balin, who had jumped into the crowd to help a guy being hammered by Hell's Angels. He was knocked out and hadn't returned to the stage.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Thank you!!
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Best Simpsons, (EVER), it had M. Carlsen, and chess, and opening name (Budapest Gambit), and it even had the board's white square in the lower right corner!!

And it had M. Carlsen, and old fashioned chess clock, and Homer doing a simul at Moe's.

And it had M. Carlsen!!

Did I mention that M. Carlsen's in this episode??
