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.

Ilkka Salonen: Stockholm has the worst hangovers. This is not as bad as Assange got.

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 ...

Ilkka Salonen: Yeah. Mamedyarov plays against Anna Muzychuk, wins but is out of the tournament. Maybe one could get some kind of increase in blood pressure from playing AM :) I wonder how ill he is or was, though.
   Dec-31-19 M Kobalia vs K Holm, 2018 (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: I didn't see at first howcome taking the rook from the corner on 16th move wouldn't work. But after 16. ...Qxa1, there is a neat way to trap the queen. 17. Bb2 Qa2 18. Nc3 Qb3 19. Bxf5 and cxb4 (nothing else would work) 20. Bc2 Qxb2 21. Bxh7+ Kxh7 22. Qxb2.
   Dec-13-19 Schlechter vs J Thirring, 1893 (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: Nice double check. I'm more of a poet, but I have lots of ideas for daily puns. I'm thinking of going through finnish player's worst defeats and suggesting "Nice guys finnish last". I have discovered though, that one can only suggest same pun once.
   Dec-04-19 London Chess Classic GCT Finals (2019) (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: No decisive games! This might not do good to the credibility or market value of the tour. The fact is that a chess player can only play so many games per year. This should be taken into account when creating a scheme for tournaments yearly. Market economy however lacks ...
   Dec-03-19 Spassky - Fischer World Championship Match (1972) (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: Did the first official FIDE Fischer Championship do homage to herritage of the 11. world champion? These were just some rapid and blitz games, after all. Nowadays, I feel, that the lack of computer games without opening moves counting, as in they are drawn untill 8th move, ...
   Nov-30-19 B Andonov vs Lputian, 1987 (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: I feel that the pun also commemorates the people known as hippies Who were these people? It is hard to define exactly, but I can tell you that cointelpro and mkultra and things like that were giving people a really rough time. And, now I feel a bit bad about inciting the CIA ...
   Nov-23-19 IBM Amsterdam (1972) (replies)
Ilkka Salonen: No doubt IBM rendered support to chess also. Nowadays, I feel that TCEC policy of drawn openings reflects indifference to truth which has many connotations. It is as if they are artificially trying to cling to treir edge towards human players too.
