If I do not remember thee,

Technical draw is a fictional character living in the collective vision of chess who has little relationship to the real technical draw; a neurotic and insecure figure obsessively clinging to the promise of power and wealth as if it were the only meaning in his life. -(apologies to Daniel Greenfield (Sultan Knish).

Well we can forget about those guys, all we need is <technical draw>

I'll keep renewing my membership if for no other reason than to keep informed from <TD> as to the apocalyptic timetable!

<Shams>: <Daniel 9:27: "And he shall make a firm covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease; and upon the wing of abominations shall come one that maketh desolate; and even unto the full end, and that determined, shall wrath be poured out upon the desolate."

  mistermac: That, TD, my excellent friend, is known, not surprisingly, as the Abomination of Desolation.

I have not been privy to the exchanges which seem to have been happening on this site, as i normally only concern myself with Chess.

No doubt that the conversation was brought about by the recent Synod in Rome. That gigantic bunfight has resulted in what seems to me a Mexican Standoff, and the synod will apparently reconvene next year.

had the Synod changed the practice immemorial about the question of Commumnion for those who remarried, the furor would have been massive, in fact would have probably been one of the great crises in the Catholic Church.

Seeing that you seem to be interested in Prophecy, and perhaps you have been influenced by Nostradamus, I would also tell you about an eveny of the 19th Century referred to as La Salette, The seer said that she was told that, in what seem to be out times, "Rome would lose the Faith and become the seat of Anti-Christ".

We are living in tumultuous times, and I would not be surprised if the Synod next year did not eventuate, as the whole of the world will be in a crisis, possibly of War, Revolution, and that the Middle East will be right in it, and so will Europe, especially France and Italy, where Rome is, of course, and widespread famine and natural disaster.

Russia and the USA, and possibly China will have their turmoil. Who knows, but in my opinion, the USA will soon, as is already become evident, become far less important in the scheme of things in much the same way as happened to Britain.

So much of what I say is surmise, I would admit, but make no mistake, the fate of the Catholic Church will be crucial in the way things turn out.

Its Founder is the Master of History, and the very way we number our Calendar is testimony of that.

  technical draw: Thanks for that excellent information <mistermac>. It makes no difference what we mortals here on this planet think, surmise or otherwise guess. What is prophesied will most assuredly occur. With that I leave the the league of prophets and do what I do best which is mainly nothing. Thanks for your interest.

  technical draw: This morning I go to the bank. Take out $300 for my wife. $300 for my mother. I'm left with $30. If it wasn't for the $285,000 I get from <WannaBe> for my perpetual motion machine I'd be dead broke.
Oct-22-14  Mr. President: Dear <technical draw>:

I have been requested by the Nigerian National Petroleum Company to contact you for assistance in resolving a matter. The Nigerian National Petroleum Company has recently concluded a large number of contracts for oil exploration in the sub-Sahara region. The contracts have immediately produced moneys equaling <US$40,000,000.> The Nigerian National Petroleum Company is desirous of oil exploration in other parts of the world, however, because of certain regulations of the Nigerian Government, it is unable to move these funds to another region.

You assistance is requested as a non-Nigerian citizen to assist the Nigerian National Petroleum Company, and also the Central Bank of Nigeria, in moving these funds out of Nigeria. If the funds can be transferred to your name, in your United States account, then you can forward the funds as directed by the Nigerian National Petroleum Company. In exchange for your accommodating services, the Nigerian National Petroleum Company would agree to allow you to retain 10%, or <US$4 million> of this amount.

However, to be a legitimate transferee of these moneys according to Nigerian law, you must presently be a depositor of at least <US$285,000> in a Nigerian bank which is regulated by the Central Bank of Nigeria.

If it will be possible for you to assist us, we would be most grateful. We suggest that you meet with us in person in Lagos, and that during your visit I introduce you to the representatives of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company, as well as with certain officials of the Central Bank of Nigeria.

Please call me at your earliest convenience at 18-467-4975. Time is of the essence in this matter; very quickly the Nigerian Government will realize that the Central Bank is maintaining this amount on deposit, and attempt to levy certain depository taxes on it.

Yours truly,

Prince Oladapo Oluto Adu aka <Mr. President>

  technical draw: Dear Mr. President: I would love to help you! You need not beg nor or self mutilate. All I ask of you in return is that you send about a million count of your finest mosquitos to the current resident of the White House. He loves to play with them at night and is also thrilled if he catches a slight fever.

We need not meet in person as I will personally send you a check for $285,000 as soon as I have confirmation from Walter Reed Hospital.

A bowl of fruit will be sent to you as a kind gesture.

Yours truly,
technical draw.

  mistermac: The best mosquitos are to be found in Australia. Perhaps I could help you out here, and perhaps you might also consider perchasing some fruit from Australia/s last remaining orchard, as the others have been uprooted in the interests of creating a level playing field (used the land thus made available) for the Global Economy.

I also invite you to observe the soon to happen G20 meeting, where our beloved Prime Minister will go all the way with LBJ, or the present incumbent.

  technical draw: The earliest evidence for these statistics learning abilities comes from a study by Jenny Saffran, in which 8-month-old infants were presented with nonsense streams of monotonous speech. Each stream was composed of four three-syllable “pseudowords” that were repeated randomly. After exposure to the speech streams for two minutes, infants reacted differently to hearing “pseudowords” as opposed to “nonwords” from the speech stream, where nonwords were composed of the same syllables that the infants had been exposed to, but in a different order. This suggests that infants are able to learn statistical relationships between syllables even with very limited exposure to a language. That is, infants learn which syllables are always paired together and which ones only occur together relatively rarely, suggesting that they are parts of two different units. This method of learning is thought to be one way that children learn which groups of syllables form individual words. Since the initial discovery of the role of statistical learning in lexical acquisition, the same mechanism has been proposed for elements of phonological acquisition, and syntactical acquisition, as well as in non-linguistic domains. Further research has also indicated that statistical learning is likely a domain-general and even species-general learning mechanism, occurring for visual as well as auditory information,

  technical draw: <The issue of age was first addressed with the critical period hypothesis of second language learning. The strict version of this hypothesis states that there is a cut-off age at about 12, after which learners lose the ability to fully learn a language>

I disagree. The cut off starts at puberty not age.

Una familia decente haciendo las cosas bien, y que esos dos sucios aparezen a cometer ese crimen.

El cuñado menciono que la gente de alli quieren agarrar a esos desgraciados y lincharlos.

Yo los dejaria.

Suena feo lo se, pero contra, a lo que hemos llegado.
