Voted Funniest Kibitzer 8 years in a row. Lost to the great <WannaBe>.

Favorite word on a forum:


The great Maria Callas in the sextet from Lucia de Lammermoor. (Well, Maria Callas and 5 other great singers):

Brahms Violin Concerto w/Hillary Hahn:

The greatest musical talent of the 20th century was female. Probably the name is unknown to many. Her name:

Nadia Boulanger

Carlos Gardel:

"If I forget thee, O Jerusalem,
let my right hand forget her cunning
If I do not remember thee,
let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth;
if I prefer not (an undivided) Jerusalem above my chief joy..."

Technical draw is a fictional character living in the collective vision of chess who has little relationship to the real technical draw; a neurotic and insecure figure obsessively clinging to the promise of power and wealth as if it were the only meaning in his life.

"When You have a brilliant mind you have a special obligation" (from A Beautiful Mind)

"I must believe that something extraordinary is possible" (from A Beautiful Mind)

How the CIA operates (long read):

If you're giving away money e-mail me at goodchessactor(at)

Cuando siegues tu mies en tu campo, y olvides alguna gavilla en el campo, no volverás para recogerla; será para el extranjero, para el huérfano y para la viuda; para que te bendiga Jehová tu Dios en toda obra de tus manos.

When thou cuttest down thine harvest in thy field, and hast forgot a sheaf in the field, thou shalt not go again to fetch it: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow: that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all the work of thine hands.

(Deut. 24:19)

technical draw: OK, guys want to hear something funny? For the last 4 nights I have been sleeping with adult diapers. I ain't ashamed. But the thing is after I bought the diapers the bedwetting (nocturnal enuresis) stopped and the diapers were dry. You must remember that I'm 73 years old and

technical draw: In the Opening Explorer when you make a move the board switches side. Is there a way to defeat this so it will stay on the same side after you make a move?

technical draw: A lot of talk about Trump here. However I remember that some named Bi something is president. And something like inflation and recession is in the news. Plus Pelosi is sticking her chardonnay where is doesn't belong, and someone's lap top is being inspected plus there's some ...

technical draw: <OCF> Robots are nasty creatures and sore losers. I beat a robot once and the darn thing flipped the board over. A very human reaction. (of course that never happened but it's a good story.)

technical draw: This proves that Bernie Sanders was a member of the KKK. That would be the headline if he were not a liberal.

   Jul-13-22 Natacha Benmesbah
technical draw: Although I posted on the equally beautiful Natacha Benmesbah's page my reference for the most beautiful and well dressed was for Ksenya Rybenko Of course both are out of my range although I am still handsome at age 73. One can dream, right?

  technical draw: Is there anyone else in the world that see teeth instead of a bat signal? Once you see it you can't unsee it.

  technical draw: "WNBA star Brittney Griner was convicted Thursday in Russia of cannabis possession and sentenced to nine years in prison — despite her insistence that she “made an honest mistake” and her tearful pleas for mercy."

I don't think justice has been served in this case. Unless Russia is waiting to trade her for some incarcerated spy in the US. That's probably what's going to happen. Griner for Growkovsky, deal?

  technical draw: I mentioned earlier that my first classical music was Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker suite. I failed to mention that it was a gift my late brother sent to me while he was in the Air Force. He actually didn't know the title and called it the Sweet Daddy Siki. Now whenever I hear the the Nutcracker I think of wrestling. I believe that was in 1964. RIP José. When you feel sad put on the record of Sweet Daddy Siki and you'll feel better.

  technical draw: This during the Clinton administration:

<Sen. Fred Thomson and Rep. Christopher Cox launched massive investigations into the Clinton sell-off of sensitive US technology to Communist China that led to the creation of the US-China Security Commission, which continues to investigate Chinese misdeeds.>

China has been a thorn in America's side since Clinton/Obama.

  technical draw: Saturday morning gem, the finale of the famous Tchaikovsky piano concerto #1, with Anna Fedorova as soloist. Enjoy!:

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Anna Fedorova does a good job with the Tchaikovsky but Martha Argerich owns that concerto. Age has limited her playing but the recordings are out there so find them and thank me later.

  technical draw: One thing that has changed since I started listening to classical music in the 60's, the virtuoso violinists were Jewish men, today they are Asian females. Same thing with classical piano players, mostly asian females.

So classical music didn't die it just moved east.

  chancho: <TD> Llegue ayer a la isla. Salimos de Frankfurt a D.C. y despues de dos horas esperando, pa San Juan. En resumen, fuimos a California por dos semanas, (vimos Alcatraz Island y varios museos, pier 39) y despues un mes en Alemania. Fuimos a Strasbourg (un pueblo en Francia) que ha sido disputado como territorio por Alemania y Francia (atreve de los siglos), y ahora en control de los Franceses. Vimos el edificio donde se reune the European Parliament y pasiamos el pueblo. Hay una iglesia ahi que se llama Notre Dame, (como la de Paris) y tenian un laser light show... bien bonito. Despues fuimos a Munich... Ibamos a viajar a Amsterdam, despues, pero el Covid nos jodio en Gunzberg, y cuarentena jodio lo demas. Pero nada, la pasamos bien, overall. Lares es mayormente campo, TD, yo me fui de vacaciones para escapar <el campo>. Deambular en Lares? Creo que lo encontrarias muy aburrido por aqui.


Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <chancho> Me alegro que lo hayas pasado bien en Europa. No te perdiste mucho por no ir a Amsterdam la cuidad es un tourist trap. Viajando en tiempo de covid daña el disfrute de las vacaciones. Gracias por la informacion sobre Lares, me salvaste de dar un grito en Lares.

  chancho: Yo queria ir a la casa de Anne Frank y darle un vistaso al museo de Van Gogh, pero asi son las cosas.


Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <chancho> Sí, te perdiste dos buenas oportunidades. Pero quien sabe si en la próxima. El museo de Van Gogh debe ser algo muy especial.

  technical draw: Who the heck is Teresa Giudice and why is her every move a New York Post story?
Premium Chessgames Member
  diceman: <technical draw: Who the heck is Teresa Giudice and why is her every move a New York Post story?>

She is one of the real housewives of (insert location here)

I think:

1) They discovered a crime while doing the show.

2) She and her husband went to jail.

3) They divorced.

4) She got married again.

So maybe unreal housewives would be a better title.

<Tchaikovsky piano concerto #1>

Tonight we love!

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <diceman> "Tonight we love" is a perfect song for a classical piece. In fact most of Tchaikovsky's music can be sung since they are so melodic.

Say no more about Teresa Guidice. She already has her 15 minutes.

  technical draw: The following are some strange statistics from D-day:

<The First U.S. Army, accounting for the first twenty-four hours in Normandy, tabulated 1,465 killed, 1,928 missing, and 6,603 wounded. The after-action report of U.S. VII Corps (ending 1 July) showed 22,119 casualties including 2,811 killed, 5,665 missing, 79 prisoners, and 13,564 wounded, including paratroopers.>

My question is how. How can 5,665 men go "missing"? Were they drowned and if so how come the bodies were not recovered? It's the English channel not the pacific ocean. Maybe they took a day trip to Paris or never got off the landing crafts. In any case those brave men deserve our respect.

  diceman: Battery History.

I've noticed, decades and decades ago. When I used batteries, they were typically <D> and <C>.

Today, <AA> and <AAA>.

The benefits of lower current draw, and things like liquid crystal displays. (which draw very little current)

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <diceman> <I've noticed, decades and decades ago. When I used batteries, they were typically <D> and <C>.>

And you had to use 4 to 8 of each.

Premium Chessgames Member


Interestingly, sciencers later added the infamous "A" battery so that Aussie metal band ACDC could enjoy a longer name. As <TD> points out, this meant that you now had to use eleventy to twenty of each.

Another step forward for sciencing!

*actual fact*

Premium Chessgames Member

<diceman> More on Battery history (great topic brah):

Interestingly, the first Genesis sans Peter Gabriel record included "Robbery Assault and Battery" which easily became their worst track ever. In fact, it took only 3 days for it to be (correctly) pronounced the worst song ever written. Ever. By anyone.

Sciencingly proof:

  Benzol: TD are you part of the conspiracy that's slowing down my build ? How ya going matey ?
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: I touched both poles of a fully charged car 12 volt battery. The battery can deliver 48 amps of current without resistance. My body across both hands has about 4,000 ohms of resistance. According to Ohms law I (current) equals V/R. 12/4000=.003 amps or 3 milliamps. That doesn't sound like much but it could bring the dead back to life or leave you shaking for a while.

(please can a real mathematician check my numbers?)

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <Hi, <Benzol>. I am a part of many conspiracies so sorry if one of them is affecting you. Thanks for dropping by I am suffering from a mighty toothache but cannot have it removed until the inflammation goes away. I actually tried to remove the tooth on my own but I found out that that is impossible.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: I can see why you were grabbing the battery terminals. Actually do you think you could jumpstart the plumbers ? They're moving with all the alacrity of a speeding snail. Even the builders are getting frustrated with them. 😆
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: OK, guys want to hear something funny? For the last 4 nights I have been sleeping with adult diapers. I ain't ashamed. But the thing is after I bought the diapers the bedwetting (nocturnal enuresis) stopped and the diapers were dry. You must remember that I'm 73 years old and am starting to have old peoples problems. But I bet I can beat anyone here in a game of chess! Tonight will be the last night I use them and if there is no action then I go back to my regular skivvies (military term for underwear).
