  WannaBe: Here's an interesting article on Mail-in ballots and how each state differs:

Nov-04-20  optimal play: Thank you for posting the link to that article on mail-in ballots.

I notice the article is by CNN. Can we trust it to be fair and balanced?

I recall a short video on mail-in ballots I saw a couple of weeks ago:

I wonder if Biden encouraged Democrats to vote by mail for COVID protection/exposure of being in line with others or perhaps for more sinister reasons?

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <optimal play> Yes, I trust that article, it is the laws of the state/county/city. Everyone can look it up and (dis)prove it.

Pretty much, U.S. is 50 "sovereign" states, that have their own laws, some state ends poll at 6PM, some ends at 9PM.

It's kinda of a mess, but hey... That's what makes it interesting.

Polling place, that's even more "fun", twice my old watering hole was a polling place (This was back in the late '90s)

I've seen churches, college gym, bars, all used as polling places. Even my old high school's auditorium was used once.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: We've been on a holding pattern here...

Yahoo have it 264-214 Biden

CNN have it 253-213 Biden

Fox News have it 264-214 Biden

Nothing much have changed for the last 2 hours.

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: It will switch to 233 to 233. Just wait.

  WannaBe: I think the <TD> high-jinx is in! (But no reputable establishments have changed their numbers yet)

In other gnus. I just saw a wonderful video on Youtube on Panko. That white Japanese bread crumb that goes on your Chicken or Pork Katsu...

They electrocute the dough... It's not baked!! Imagine that.

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <(But no reputable establishments have changed their numbers yet)>

Hey! I'm a reputable establishment and I have changed the numbers.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Assoc. Press have called it. Biden wins with 284 electoral college votes!!
Premium Chessgames Member
  chancho: Huffpo has it at 290:

  WannaBe: In other lesser Gnus...

Dem are losing House seats, and Senate is still up in the air, with run-offs in some states.

California had some "relative" progressive propositions statewide, and they did not pass, amongst those are:

1. Re-instate Affirmative Active

2. Rent Control on buildings older than a certain age, (or built before a certain year...)

3. Lyft/Uber and others employee are classified as contractors, not employee. (This over turned Assembly Bill that was passed)

4. Money-less bail, it failed...

I guess there is still hope for California, people are leaving in troves since this COVID and work from home (WFH) started...

Have read so many articles on people leaving and finding new home in TX and ID where people are accepting to different ideas and not be view as "You Are Not One of Us."

  WannaBe: LA Times Op-Ed, written by someone named Kareem Abdul-Jabbar...

I think that name is fake, his real name is Lew. And I totally agree with him. You go big guy. Luv ya man!


Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <his real name is Lew.>

You're right. He's hispanic. His full name is Lew Alcíndez de Los Rios.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <TD> Actually, if I remember right, his legal first name is Lewis... Now I have to go and look it up.

Okay, I was kinda right, and kinda wrong...

His full name is Ferdinand Lewis Alcidor Jr.

If you don't believe me, go and change the Wiki page, and I'll believe whatever name you give him.

Hey, you can name him Betty Beth Boopy Boppily Boob.

Nov-08-20  optimal play: <WannaBe: Assoc. Press have called it. Biden wins with 284 electoral college votes!!>

Thank you.

Does that number of 284 include the tens of thousands of fraudulent mail-in ballots delivered at 4:00am in the swing states and counted without Republican scrutineers and which were virtually 100% for Joe Biden?

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <His full name is Ferdinand Lewis Alcidor Jr.>

You're wrong. Ferdinand Lewis Alcidor Jr. is the Mexican middleweight boxing champion. He beat Panamanian Roberto "mano de piedra" Duran.

  WannaBe: (4th paragraph) Yeah, those Yarmulkes sure can obscure a person's photo... What idiots (NYPD).

What if I want to wear that big furry hat? (What is it called again? Have to scroll back and find my own reminder... Ugh)

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <(4th paragraph) Yeah, those Yarmulkes sure can obscure a person's photo... What idiots (NYPD).>

That's just the NYPD trying to be politically correct. If you forbid something Islamic then you MUST forbid something Jewish. Everything must balance out or one group will riot. (guess which one).

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <I posted this on my forum but I'll post it here just for you:>

Let's say you have a net worth of $3 billion. That's billion with a B. What would be your ranking in the world's richest list? Well don't guess because TD has the answer right here: You will be number 712. That's right with $3 billion you're not even in the top 500. I guess a billion dollars ain't what it used to be.

So <Wannabe> get to work if you want to be on the next list.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: I already have $50 Billions, (but that is in Zimbabwe dollars...)
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Discovered a new Channel on YouTube to spend on my time on. Absolute History. Apparently a UK TV show?

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <WannaBe> 50 billion Zimbabwe dollars is exactly $138,159.71 American. You're just a hundred thousandaire in sunny North Dakota. Uncle Slim in Mexico told me that he will remember me in his will. So when Uncle Slim croaks I'll be a fat cat.
