johnlspouge: Thanks, <Tommy>! My musical ear must be improving. I was a little bothered that the chicken's pecks did not correspond to the notes... :)

  johnlspouge: @<Tomlinsky>: Hi, Tommy! Top o' the morn! It's always a pleasure to hear from you.

I have always found Rick Beato's YouTube musical videos instructive, although they make me feel like a chimpanzee listening to Shakespeare. Thanks for pointing me to his channel. I have a yearly cycle for music, and it is almost time to work on the fundamentals again.

I appreciate your thinking of me. I hope you are well. All the best...

Oct-29-18  Tomlinsky: Eyup lad. Pleased to hear that you are as confused on this matter as am I.

Another muse feeder to twist that noodle...

  johnlspouge: I stuck to home base and watched David Bruce's video on musical composition and the Fibonacci numbers.

It's worse. I don't even know enough about musical composition to feel like a chimpanzee!

Thanks, <Tommy>. It's always pleasant to hear from you.

I hope all is well.

Nov-14-18  Tomlinsky: Ticking over. Just. Could do without this Brexit bollocks but hey-ho. US politics is an entertaining distraction in small doses these days. It's all just a fart within a whirlwind anyway!

On a brighter note (C# perhaps?) I love these resources, dizzying as they can be, some of it sticks. I think.

Premium Chessgames Member
  johnlspouge: Internet resources for training musical ear have definitely taught me more than I could have learned in the pre-internet era.

Brexit is retro, but there are certainly those around who prefer retro. Reality takes some time to impinge.

Good to hear you are still "ticking over", though :)

Jan-12-19  Tomlinsky: I hope we can still get Toblerone after we leave the EU. Happy New Year to you, good sir.
Premium Chessgames Member
  johnlspouge: Thanks, Tommy!

We can still get Toblerone here, probably at a special price, just for the US ;>)

Let me know if you need an overseas package :)

Best of the New Year to you, too, sir!

Premium Chessgames Member
  johnlspouge: BTW, about one month ago, I started speculating that Brexit won't happen. It might be wishful thinking, because without it, my kids can find employment in Europe.

Am I crazy? (Maybe, I should phrase the question more usefully, but...)

  Diademas: <johnlspouge: BTW, about one month ago, I started speculating that Brexit won't happen.>

Wish you were right, but I'm afraid our offsprings will have to live with what a scared hate mongering bunch of octogenarians decided in the early part of the 21st century.

  thegoodanarchist: <jls> I am going to leave this link right here for you:

<Next month, we will announce the results of our newest assessment at the launch of a new book entitled: “World Population and Global Human Capital in the 21st Century” (Lutz, Butz and KC, Oxford University Press 2014). Contrary to the UN projections, the IIASA medium (most likely) scenario indicates that world population will increase to 9.2 billion by 2050, peak at 9.4 billion around 2070 and start a slow decline to 9.0 billion by the end of the century.>

The IIASA folks look like they may be well ahead of the UN folks, in accuracy. I could be wrong, but that doesn't happen often.

Premium Chessgames Member
  johnlspouge: @<thegoodanarchist>: I was not aware of the IIASA organization. Thanks.

Of course.

Please forgive my rhetorical device of labeling your data "propaganda".

After all, the UN data isn't so far off, percentage-wise.

Mar-26-19  Nisjesram: <nok: I'm being told a man with a turban's looking for me>

<johnlspouge> and I are looking for you in the <johnlspouge> forum because we both liked your conversation on omv and

I posted this message of <jls> for you :




Where are you <nok> ?

Did someone see <nok> ?

<nok>, did you read this comment of <jls> ?

<johnlspouge: @<Nisjesram>: I also wanted to open a direct dialog with <nok> [about omv argument], so by all means, use my forum.>


2)looking forward to seeing you in <jls> forum.

P.s. neither <jls> nor I wear turban.

Cheers :)


Sep-20-19  Nisjesram: Jambavan Jagori : : why do you think you may take 10 more years for enlightenment

Me : 1)because I am an idiot .....
.....compared to ramana/Nisargadatta

Enlightenment is intelligence and love/compassion in action. Love and intelligence , dispassion of Jesus

Hell , I am an idiot compared to even <keypusher> and <johnlspouge>

Look at the intelligence , clarity/depth of thinking of these two. And dispassion too.

And they are compassionate too. Always willing to help. And they have strength/capability to help too

2)I said it may take 10 years or more or less....

...talking to you kills my brain cells. So , I took break from you and morning session was very productive - intelligence , clarity/depth of thinking increased a lot. Dispassion too.

If I have such produactive sessions very frequently if not incessantly , then I may reach mountain top of meditation very fast.

3) within a week , I will send you those 20 posts . If you don't hear from me by 27 Sep 2019 , feel free to get in touch , but stay away from me till then , I need to focus a lot for a week at least , I need to be alone and quiet for a week at least .

Thank you . Regards.


Oct-21-19  Nisjesram: <wtpy> , my temporary emailid:

Thank you.


2)I will appreciate if you confirm in the forum of <johnlspouge> that you have received this emailid.

Thank you. Regards.

Premium Chessgames Member
  johnlspouge: I am happy to be helpful in any way, <Nisjesram> and <wtpy>, including deletion in my forum upon request.
Oct-22-19  wtpy: JLS, Thanks. I have been reading some of posts here and wish I was smart enough to understand more of them. Nisjesram, If same niece you taught math to in 2017 am gathering she is 16-17-18 now. Will send you my email address tommorow.
Oct-22-19  Nisjesram: Thanks <wtpy>.

No , that niece who is seventeen now , is daughter of my younger sister.

This niece is daughter of elder sister and is 25 now.

Thank you


Oct-22-19  Nisjesram: <wtpy> , a quick question , if you please :

If a person is given Paliperidone and she stops taking it once psychosis is gone , is it risky to stop ?

Thank you


Oct-25-19  wtpy: Nisjesram, It is the real me.
Oct-25-19  Nisjesram: <wtpy: Nisjesram, It is the real me.>

Thank you , <wtpy> . Regards


Jan-15-20  Nisjesram: Reposted from rogoffland

<Bobsterman3000: <Carrots and Pizza - To count errors or hyperbole as lies is dishonest. If someone things Clinton was never charged with a crime and they are shown that he was, it doesn't make his statement a lie. Not all false statements are lies.> <wtpy: Keypusher, Absolutely right. Even mistaking a fact doesn't make you a liar, it just makes you mistaken.>

Sure, you people are right.

But for someone to (still) keep claiming that "collusion is now proven" is not being mistaken at this point. It's just willfully lying.>

Good that you want to settle it.

I too want to settle/resolve it for once and all, however, presently I am a little too busy with work .

I will come back to this conversation and take it to its logical conclusion and show why I think you are completely wrong ,<bobsterman> ,in calling <saffuna> a liar.

I am posting this post in the forum of <keypusher> and in the forum of <johnlspouge> (for the future reference of <wtpy> and others). I hope <keypusher> and <johnlspouge> would be ok with it.

Thank you guys. Let us try to elevate our conversations as much as we can.


Jan-15-20  Tomlinsky: A little pianistic inspiration for 2020... :)
