Captain Hindsight
Member since Dec-10-10 · Last seen Sep-06-23
To see the future after it happened!

Have no fear, <Captain Hindsight> is here!

<Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it … and we’ve known that for a long time. <>>

" The economy was collapsing, and try as they might, the policy makers only exaserbated the problem. Yet people continued to believe in the government they had not elected due to fraud and bribes from corporations. Only a few dozen homeless people in each city made any noise, and those movements never gained any traction. We would like to note here there was a blog called "Zero Hedge" that did well to predict the coming @#$%pacalypse, but it appeared to be only mainstream as far as trading ideas went. It's culture never fully caught on to the status quo...."

-Future Famous Historian, 2020
From the book, <"Hindsight">

<<Captain> Obvious saves the Day! <<>>>

I'm only here coz my flux capacitor is broken.

As an Austrian economist, you just have to laugh! Reality is that every dollar the the government borrows to spend on government consumption is a dollar that would have been borrowed by businesses to purchase plants and equipment which is the real source of growth.

<So the threshold is not 90% its 0%. <Empiricism is totally useless in a world where variables are interrelated, parameters and interrelationships change, and key variables are un-measurable expectations.>>

OhioChessFan: <A search for the Holy Grail has a better chance of success than an accurate measuring of crowding out. <Even if the economists could figure it out, the politicians would mess it up.>> Yep!

In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame; two is a law firm and three or more is a government.

<The trouble with being a cynic these days is it is so much work to keep up. <>>

<I hate being late, but I'm so good at it.>

Hindsight strikes again:

= = = = =

<Christmas is <the biggest scam in the history of the world.>>

200 Billion dollars on crap that will end up in the landfills 3 months from now. I would have said "end up off the shores of New Jersey but they're all filled up and polluted so now it all gets hauled down and buried in Kentucky.

Humans are so freaking stupid and gullible. Yeah, and how about that <Santa Claus> that you push on your kids? Invented by Coke in the 30's he was. Thats why he's dressed in red and white.

Christ's B-day? Sure! That will get you out and spending what you dont have on things you dont need, for sure. After all, the baby Jesus sure could use all that gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

   Sep-06-23 Nakamura vs D Kollars, 2020
Captain Hindsight: Black's only fatal mistake was the move < 25. ... Kg7 ?? > 25. ... Rxa2, 25. ... Nxc4 or 25. ... Rg8 would have held the advantage.
   Sep-04-23 E B Cook vs D Starbuck, 1883
Captain Hindsight: Better would have been < 16. Nxe7 Nxe7 17. Bg5 Qe6 18. Rxe6 dxe6 18. Qf7+ Kd7 19. Bxe7 > [DIAGRAM] and because of the underdevelopment / uncoordination Black will lose further material if he is mated beforehand.
   Sep-03-23 Keres vs Estrin, 1941
Captain Hindsight: Already < 13. Qd2! Nf6 14. Bc5 Rxf4+ 15. Nf3 Ne4+ 16. Kg1 > [DIAGRAM] would have resulted in a superior white position.
   Aug-12-23 H Wang vs R Svane, 2023
Captain Hindsight: White was satisfied with the perpetual check after being under pressure throughout the game. Nevertheless, he missed a winning move here: [DIAGRAM] < 41. >?
   Aug-05-23 M Narva vs S Wafa, 2023 (replies)
Captain Hindsight: Black missed the saving move twice: < 56/58 ... Qe8! >
   Aug-05-23 J Dunning vs J Curdo, 1979
Captain Hindsight: < 11.Qg4 !! > would have sealed it immediately. [DIAGRAM] Best line < 11 ... Qg8 12. fxe5+ Ke8 13. Nf6+ Bxf6 14. Bxg6+ > [DIAGRAM] and white ends at least with three pawns up
   Jul-31-23 Polugaevsky vs G Goldberg, 1954

   Jul-07-23 A Kazarian vs E Roebers, 2023
Captain Hindsight: < 37. ... b4 ?? > was a very bad move which White answered with the losing move < 38. Ne6 ?? >. Instead, < 38. Bc7!! > would have had the potential to still win the game for White. [DIAGRAM] Here you can see the best variation after that: < 38. ... ...
   Jul-07-23 E Roebers vs A van Weersel, 2023
Captain Hindsight: Black would have done better to follow the classic Spielmann vs Tarrasch, 1923 with < 7. ... Bf5 > [DIAGRAM]
