Yo, Pedro!

An actual woman discusses chess. Claims there are five myths. I'll need you to either confirm them or rip them to shreds.


https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/ ... story.html

1] Chess is dull and unsexy.
2] It takes genius to win at chess.
3] Strong chess players see dozens of moves ahead.
4] Deep Blue's win in 1997 meant the end of chess.
5] The king is the most important piece in chess.

This is what I settled on. But then I went to my mommas and got me some food.

Still, for a bout $2-3... I think eggs are the clear winner. I mean a whole dozen. You could live at least 3 days on those.

Stocks, along with bonds, commodities and derivatives of all three, are what underlie all your money. Your pension, if you are not one of the rich, is not in cash, which would depreciate and leave you with nothing, it is in stocks. Stocks are what allow money made today to remain valuable tomorrow. Money doesn't exist, it is a place-setter for commerce, for valuable business activity.

It is not what the rich are doing, it is what everybody is doing. Everybody that works and adds value to a business.

All bank value, except for some nominal minimum amount of cash, is in stocks. That is how they are able to keep up with inflation and even provide you with returns on your savings. If you don't like this, you will have to take the money out of the bank and store it. But you won't because you are aware that it would just depreciate.

The game that ended Fischer's 20-game win streak (2nd closest streak is Fischer himself with 11 and then Caruana with 7). Petrosian is one of the few ultra grandmasters with whom I can usually actually intuit his next move, at least in pivotal positions.

So is a serious candidate for championship challenger some day. Needless to say, so are many others on that list, Nakamura among them. Be cool if Nakamura trained for the next Candidates.

Look, no one is more successful at making a fool out of you than you yourself. So, of course I'm going to encourage you.

My goal is to humiliate the Kids to the point that they choose to leave ILP.

That will never happen of course -- you and your ilk now own the place -- but the thing about waiting for godot is that none of that actually matters.

It's all essentially interchangeable with everything else. And one day when you are no longer "young and beautiful" yourself, you'll think, "so that's what he meant by it"?

You know, if you don't cross the street and get hit by a bus today. 8)
