I have made the song Stop the War for Opium, and I was in kind of @#$% list by the finnish police already. And then I did also some street art about a weed smoking social worker, after which the security threats against my person reached such levels that I decided to declare being 718 mentioned in the manuscript Liber AL. I wanted to know a little bit about quantum physics in my youth, and I did, and then I was like of, whatever, I don't feel like knowing more. Now I am trying to dig into the concept of scientific truth because there is something deeply wrong with modern medicine, and economics too.

I have also developed my own chess variation which I call Ichess or Ishakki. It has two rule alternations, basically.

1. Player can take his own pieces or pawns. That is a square occupied by players own pieces (not the King, naturally) can be occupied in players turn by another of his pieces when it would have the right to move there and the piece previously in that square is removed from the board.

2. Provided a player has less than 16 pieces and less than 8 pawns and the rank in question has a vacant square, he can use his move to create a new pawn to either first or eight rank depending on color. The first move of the new pawn is one step forward (when a player uses another move for that) and from second and seventh rank the normal exceptions apply.

   Jun-16-22 Sofia Polgar vs Westerinen, 1988 (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: Or, is it about not enough early resignation? Well, that is a tough issue. A chess players should concentrate on how to use up the time best to gain result. And therefore if a move is definitely not the worst choice he should take it and not waste time considering if ...
   Mar-31-22 FIDE Grand Prix Leg 3 (2022) (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: What is going on? Is So's 23. ...Nh4 for real or fake chess? I think instead of mocking Karjakin people should consider if Andreikin was treated unfairly, or if this now even is a fair championship cycle. The current world champion already expressed some reluctance in ...

Ilkka Salonen: Has David Howell been changed? Probably not and I just tripping or something. I kind of thought he looked different some time ago. But maybe I am just confusing with somebody else. Anyway, a horrible thing about the modern world that you cannot know for sure always if someone ...

Ilkka Salonen: Alas! He encounters the World Champion again in the FIDE World Cup, Who is even the favourite? All Russian semifinals are still possible but perhaps no Russians in semifinals is more likely.
   Jul-06-21 Ian Nepomniachtchi (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: I think that in these troubled times there is real uncertainty about a player's form. For that reason I think odds in the world champion ship match don't favour the world champion as much as they normally would.
   Jul-05-21 World Championship Candidates (2020/21) (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: Will there be classical time control finish at the World Championship match or another rapid and blitz event? Let´s hope both player´s make it to the match in good condition, because these are troubled times. It is a bit funny that Nepomniatchi can´t play under ...

Ilkka Salonen: Way go go Vietnam. I have heard about your grievances.

Ilkka Salonen: Stockholm has the worst hangovers. This is not as bad as Assange got.
   Aug-08-20 FIDE Online Olympiad (2020) (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: Finland fails to even field a team! What is going on? I think in many cases playing conditions could be subpar due to factors such as connection problems, malware and harrasment of various kinds or just annoyances of urban environment such as rennovation noises, poor air ...
   Apr-29-20 A Nokso-Koivisto vs M Lanzani, 1989 (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: Analogue to president Koivisto comes to mind, who perhaps showed restraint in his relations with KGB and wasn't subject to forced wife sharing as other KGB informants often were. A phenomenon which then possibly triggered the finnish Security Intelligence Police to use threat ...
