I like the Kiribati flag, it's so cheerful! It belongs to a sunny country with lots of islands. Did yous know that there are 15 countries without soldiers? K is one of them :)

Why do we smile? We show that our weapons (teeth) are harmless. People have been called all sorts through the ages - how about the friendly animal or homo comis?

I know it doesn't look like it when you listen to the media - but when you look around you, your neighbours, friends & family - what do you see?

we can't stop people from exploiting the weak. But we can show our contempt for rich people: When they can't show off with their ill gotten gains, they'll want to share them.

Philanthropist: someone who shares his/her ill gotten gains with others.

let's fight ageism: chess is like art, philosophy, story telling. The only difference is that in chess you're told you're too old, in the other subjects you get better with age. It will be the same in chess, when the news gets around!

what would happen if all the people had money all the time? Before you give me your answer here is what others suggested:

people would be happy; free; become ill; be lazy; stop working; nothing is done for you; money is not needed; it'd be a catastrophe, chaos & the worst: nothing left to buy, lol. We'd run out of frivolous things to buy & people would grow their own food. Since the farmers wouldn't need all that precious land, it'd be there for everyone.

Anything we left out?

Octavia: The problem with women's chess is that we think men are better and as long as that happens we can't win. Good luck tomorrow, Elisabeth
