Jul-30-07  hellopolgar: it must feel weird to get owned by someone who is almost 80 years old.
Aug-02-07  Nasruddin Hodja: So what? I've gotten owned in blitz on a few occasions by munchkins who couldn't have been more than 8 years old. One grins and bears it gracefully, or else chess becomes too emotionally difficult to bear ;-)
Aug-02-07  Notagm: Americans totally misuse the word 'own'. In English, the word 'own' refers to owning property. Americans seem to use it to mean 'dominate'.
Aug-02-07  madlydeeply: American English is constantly evolving. I noticed that when I was in Italy...I tried to play with their language like we do in the USA...use a verb in a wrong situation or the USA we would understand that its a joke..but in Italy they were always looking at me baffled...."what the hell is he talking about???!!"....HA
Aug-09-07  MadBishop: Simple chess! Korchnoi shows that he is not averse to using aggressive tactics! In fact, he excels at it! Very pretty!
Aug-19-07  BlackNightmare: 80 y old thats Viktor the terrible you ar e talking about former unnoficial world champion he's probably three times your age and the rating u could ever peak to...nuff said!
Aug-19-07  BlackNightmare: <Notagm> it gets worse now they replace o with p something like pwn....incredible in 10 years time gibberish will be their oficial language ...
Aug-19-07  OneArmedScissor: <Notagm>
It's called the semantic change of language.

Back in the 1970s, saying some was "awesome" meant it was absolutely incredible. If an alien came down to earth and dropped 50 tons of gold in my living room, that would be truly awesome. But now, people use awesome to describe a hamburger, etc.

Change is inherent to language. It will continue to change and will never stop.

Dec-05-09  HAPERSAUD: If you play 1.e4 e5 2.nf3 nf6 3.nxe5 d6 4.nxe4 nf6 5.d4 d5 6.bd3 bd6 7.0-0 0-0 8.c4 nf6 9.bg5 dxc4 10.Bxc4 h6 11.Bh4 nc6 12.nc3 bg4 13.h3 bxf3 14.qxf3 nxd4 15.qxb7 nf5 16.Bxf6 qxf6 17.rae1 is a direct transposition to this game! A queens gambit accepted reached from a petrov sideline! I came across it as I was booking up in my training :) can't wait to use it.
