  OhioChessFan: Thanks for your thoughts <whiteshark> and here are some more of mine:


Go Maurice!

Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: I, an imaginary giant?

Not really.

<Tab> must imagine himself on Rogoff, what with his gratuitous term of endearment and all--that would be a right good fit Over There.

Sep-23-16  zanzibar: Here's some advise <Tab> imparts as he departs...

He's the guy with the hat, in case you're wondering.

(Americans never get the Norwegian accent right - so it sounds like Shane...)

Tab: <That was Zan, he was fast on the draw...


A man has to be what he is... can't break the mold.


Right or wrong it's a brand, and a brand sticks.

[... and the last words of advice to CG...]

You go home to your mother and father and grow up to be strong and straight.

You go home and take care of all of them, and all the little footnotes...


Bye little <CG>.



It's bloody, you're hurt! [...]

Pa gots things for you to do, and JFQ wants ya, I know she does. ...

Tab! ...

Tab! Come back!

Fade out to black.

  Retireborn: <z> Of course, what Shane should have done was shoot that annoying kid at the very first opportunity, regardless of its age or sex.
Sep-26-16  zanzibar: <Retireborn> Ha! You've a little W.C. Fields in you I suspect.

Of course, I assume you've watched the entire movie - otherwise the kid really would look like a twerp.

My least favorite kid character in a movie is probably John Connor (Edward Furlong) in T2. Ugh.

Plus, we all know Arnold is only capable of being a bad robot. The less said the better!

Anyways, I think we should have another Shane installation soon...

Sep-26-16  TheFocus: A little Shane trivia.

There was a one season Western called Shane. It starred David Carradine, Jill Ireland, and Bert Freed. The kid was the boy who voiced Linus in A Charlie Brown Christmas.

Carradine was outstanding in this series.

Sep-26-16  TheFocus: <Tabanus> <The same handful of buttheads polluting thousands of player pages, on a regular basis, with CG's blessing.>

Shame on you. We are just having fun.

It's not like we sabotaged player bio's or something deplorable like that.

That would be a low thing to do. Don't you agree?

Premium Chessgames Member
  Retireborn: <z> More a dash of PG Wodehouse, although I do know the Fields quote you're referring to. Ha!

Agree about T2 and its kid.

Sep-27-16  zanzibar: New flash - <RB> caught on film demonstrating his fondness for children:

Of course, there's always some antecedent:

<RB>, he does love the little nippers!

Premium Chessgames Member
  Retireborn: LOL plus some other remarks about annoying kids.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <TheFocus....It's not like we sabotaged player bio's or something deplorable like that.

Ah nevah heered o anyone doin a thang lahke thet!

Sep-27-16  TheFocus: <perfidious> <Tabanus> did.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: Just joking--we are all only too aware of what went, courtesy of that pharisaical sort who now rains broadsides from On High.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Retireborn: <perfidious> I enjoy your demotic, although I can't place it. Is it New England dialect, or from elsewhere in the States?
Sep-27-16  TheFocus: More like Foghorn Leghorn.
Sep-27-16  zanzibar: <RB> apparently has a very good vocabulary.

Demotic is so much easier to spell than colloquial. I might have to remember that one.

Let's check out its etymology:

Ah, Greek, and related to democratic. From the article I learned a little about its relationship to Egyptian hieroglyphics and other things heiratical.

There's also an obscure chess connection via tides of time and sea, if one allows zeit (or not).

Premium Chessgames Member
  Retireborn: <z> A new word a day keeps the doctor away! Although I do wonder if "dialect" wouldn't be the more correct word if (as I assume) it's referring a regional pattern of speech.

<The Focus> If you mean nobody speaks like that in real life, I'm disappointed :)

Sep-28-16  TheFocus: <Retireorn> <<The Focus> If you mean nobody speaks like that in real life, I'm disappointed :)>

Well, to tell the truth, I speak just like that. Very heavy Southern drawl.

Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <Retireborn> Many in the American South do.

I was raised on American and British English and the latter shows, though nowadays mostly in speech patterns and spelling rather than otherwise.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Retireborn: <The Focus> Thanks for that. As a fan of the Big Bang Theory, I recall that Jim Parsons, who plays Sheldon, had a slight drawl which was actually pleasant to listen to. I'm not sure if he hasn't lost most of it recently.

My own experience is that peoples accents become hybridized (if that's the right word!) when they live in different areas.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Retireborn: <perfidious> Thanks. Yes, it's always surprising/amusing when you suddenly change your idiom! I wish I could do that.
Sep-28-16  zanzibar: <<perf> I was raised on American and <British English> and the latter shows, though nowadays mostly in speech patterns and spelling rather than otherwise.<<>>>

Yes, sometimes I've seen spellings in posts that made me wonder if Perf ever really spent time in Bostoun or even Soumerville.
