  offramp: Good to see you on the Statistics Page as one of the most frequent kibitzers. Did you know you were on it?
Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: Thanks <offramp>!

There are many links at <CG> that I am unaware of. Perhaps I should maximize my premium membership and try to visit some of these links

Sorry I don't comment on all your witty remarks, I read most if not all and find them highly enjoyable!

This year I will nominate you for funniest poster


Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: Thank you! I always look forward to <your> posts. They are really funny!

  morfishine: Hey <Dr Winston OBoogie> did you see Rooney's 59 yard goal to secure the hat trick? Incredible:

Jan-03-18  Dr Winston OBoogie: Morf.. I've only just checked the forums now mate (It's been a crazy month!) so I didn't see your post. I saw Rooney getting abused by Utd fans yesterday which just shows you how fickle football is. I'm not Rooney's biggest fan but he did more for that club bar any player than Ryan Giggs over the last 20+ years so I was very disappointed with Man Utd fans. Astonishing placement from Rooney though, pity he couldn't do it for England after.... <2004!>

Anyways.. You voted for Trump (I'm not having a go at you) so what do you think of his first year in charge and what do you reckon to his tweets that people are <pleading> with the GOP to go 25th amendment over?

Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: Happy New Year to you, too, <morf>!

I hope you understand that my "outrage" regarding the GOTD pun was tongue-in-cheek, about as real as fake news.

I am glad the pun got used.

I am not so optimistic that "The Smeller's the Feller" will be used.

Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: <thegoodanarchist> Absolutely

GL with "Smellers"

Premium Chessgames Member
  Jimfromprovidence: <Morf> Thanks for the kind words. I lost my wife to cancer last May.

Thankfully, my son and his family live close by so we are able lean on each other to get through things.

Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: <morf> you probably already know this, but the Japanese came out with an awesome fighter toward the end of the war, which could stand up to the US Hellcat an Corsair.

I read about it in wikipedia here:

Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: My favorite fighter of WW2 is the Me-262 Schwalbe (Swallow), a twin-engine jet.

What a beautiful plane! And about 100 mph faster than our P-51 Mustang, which is my favorite prop-driven fighter of the war, and probably the all-around best prop-driven fighter of the war as well. Yeager beat at least one Me-262 in his P-51.

There is an authentic Me-262 on display in the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, which is my favorite Smithsonian. What beautiful lines it has...

Good thing Hitler wanted to make it a ground attack plane. That saved our bacon. The FW-190 was bad enough to deal with during the unescorted strategic bombing runs of 1943. Imagine if our bomber crews had to face jets!

Have you ever been to the Smithsonian? If you ever get a chance, check out that plane! They even have an old film from the war showing one of them taking off, IIRC. I watched it about 8 times :)

Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: <morf> thanks for th link. I will check it out later when I have some time.

Mine was Joe Louis.

  morfishine: <diceman> lol


Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: <morf>: I just saw your note about your Superbowl trip - sounds great! I'm sure you and your old friend will have a blast.

Let us know about any humorous anecdotes that occur.

Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: Well, I guess the next discussion revolves around the Antietam campaign and how it relates to the Gettysburg campaign


Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: < morfishine: Hey <Nisjesram> you moronic cheap-skate: Why don't you fork over 30 dollars to purchase a premium membership. That way, you can crap all over your own forum. Imbecile UR just another brain dead zombie relegated off to ignore-land bye bye

lol >

Hey <morf>!

I traveled to Japan, and forgot to close my forum before the flight. Been working and entertaining the customer 16 hours a day since I got here, and just now had time to check my forum.

I took out the trash and swept it clean.

Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: < morfishine: <thegoodanarchist> How was your trip to Japan? I love Japan! I spent almost 4 years in Japan while in the Navy from 1992 - 96 & met my wife there. I've only been back once. I love the people, culture, food and landscape. Just a great place! >

I had a great time! Thanks for asking.

Got back to US at 8 AM today, and took a 4 hour nap.

The visit was better than expected because I stayed in a much better hotel this time.

Unfortunately, we had to have 2 meals of international (non-Japanese) meals. It was disappointing to have to miss out for half the dinners, because the Japanese cuisine is amazingly good.

Does your wife return to see her family from time to time?

As for <Nisj> spamming my forum, well, I know about the ignore function but this was never a problem until recently.

Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <morf>, most of your guesses were bang on.

In order, the players were as follows:

Yusupov, Ribli, Andrei Sokolov, Timman, Tal, Spassky, Belyavsky, Smyslov, Vaganian, Seirawan, Portisch, Short, Korchnoi, Chernin, Nogueiras and Spraggett.

Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: Thanks <perfidious>! The picture is remarkable and to think it was 33 years ago! Spassky's picture surprised me, but yes, its him

And to think, from the side, Spraggett looks like Lennon (at least to me) lol

  thegoodanarchist: < morfishine: <thegoodanarchist> I've had that idiot <Travis Bickle> on ignore forever it seems. What a numb skull>

Not a bad idea!
