As Everyone Here Knows, I Only Play Patzers

...According to Funkyfantom ('profile not available') I beat patzers, of course, taking the easy way all the time! Is a ratio of only 33.1% wins the mark of someone who only plays weak players??

The other night, I lost EIGHTEEN games in a row to a 1900 elo, then beat him the last game. See lattest comments, here, at Blue Devil Knights nice post (original post has nice chart, see link for html:).

I'd like to know why he ran out of strength, and what bothers him?

His post is closed, yet he can snipe at the side. Sound familiar? The chessDog of yesteryear (not now, who has made himself available for direct, and interactive communication. Thank you again, chessDog).

Who is this guy?

I believe people should be entitled to thier own opinions. I hope you aren't taking FF's comments too personally.

Its refreshing to have counterpoints as it promotes critical thinking...otherwise we are all just sheeple.

I now blitz... used to avoid it...I see both sides... I will continue to blitz for now as I WANT to improve my speed in calculations.

I think blunderprone is right. As long as someone is being respectful, not being a trolling dick, they are making a positive contribution to the blogosphere. FF sometimes gets pretty close to that line.

FF is sort of like Quandoman used to be (quando's blog went 404 a loong time ago, as I'm sad to say Chess for Blood did this week). Quandoman was somewhat opinionated and abrasive (from the Bay area, in fact), but had some very useful insights about chess. FF seems to have all of the same personality traits, except is more of a gadfly than a sage, but remember Socrates!

My God, Transformation, where do you find all these photos?! You have a keen eye for selecting just the right picture to intensify the humor of the moment--the mark of a first-rate wit. (Hey, it takes one to know one! ;-) Not that I understand what you're saying all the time, but I can usually tell when *something funny* is going on, even if I don't know what it is.)

Who is the funkfantom guy? I seem to recall someone posting some very anti-MDLM material on a wall here--could it be the same guy? ("Heretic! Ye shall burn at the stake!!")

btw--I've got a new post. If you read it, Satan will surely grin favorably upon you >:-)

briefly, i went home from work 90 min early with incipient flu or almost flu, so try to get around it on the prudent side of rest:

how do i do it or where do i find them?

i actually sit, once a month, for an hour or two with no other purpose than to find good photos then find a way to use them.

but, when i write, i ALREADY have a library of hundreds, so store ahead. i dare say, i have photos from a year ago ive saved for some unknown future purpose.

lastly, dont forget, just as you are trained in math, so ive been drawing since i was six months old. i went to an architecture school perhaps harder to get into than yale, harvard, or mit. i have had caligraphy, life (nude drawing), photography, five years of architecture history, ive even hand copied Leonardo da Vinchi antitomical drawings, so good photos are shape, color, gesture, tone or value (dark/light), symbol or expression, saturation hue or cromatic value.

so i say, 'ah, that is a photo'.

i actually mine key words like crazed, upset, chaos, pattern, woven, spirol, collosal, ancient, martial arts, attack, save, sacred, devotion, mourn, sad, marriage, child.

you cannot believe how hard it is to find good photos of children and old people, believe me, ive spent hours. and old couples are very rare. the discards of society.

as for the women, like any horny unders_xed 49 year old single man who's had his fare share of very lovely if not beautiful women, (some i will never foreget), i always look for the rare leading photos in the adult area when they have nice figures and faces or embody and erotic sense. of course, there are many erotic photos clothed, semiclothed or nude, but the sense or state shown is what is erotic.

the chest, or lips, or legs or hair is secondary to the message.

this blond, i dont even know if she is my type, aside from a fine featured small boned face and figure, and id bet augmentation given such a fine face or tiny bones, but she has that look of... the sultry, hot look of i am gonna make you explode.

Um, I think she's *everyone's* type. Which reminds me: I don't appreciate your putting up those random photos of beautiful women. It distracts us (me?) from work and productive intellectual thought. As Mr. LaVey also writes, asexuality is a valid sexual preference, in which a man's sex drive is sublimated and channeled into incredible creative energy.

(Ah, who am I kidding?! I'm no asexual, and I doubt the rest of you lot are either. Keep posting those women, dammit!!!)

10% of the women ive 'known' have had breast augmentation, and while in a way exciting, i see a twinge of sadness on her face. can you possibly see it?

if it is 10%, then the issue is only to guess if this is 20 or 10 or 30? whatever it is, i only want one good woman, not more of what i have had.

friends ive not loved. lovers ive not trusted. women ive been totally in love with who didnt love me. women i trusted but could never love. women to talk with but not embrace. women to embrace but god forbid no more arguments with...

at age 49, im done. let it be correct or not at all.

i have a cat, with a Sanskrit name.
i have chess.
i have memories.

but i still have longing, but for what? life evolves to new ground...

Ach, the deception of breast augmentation. No me gusta. I suppose I can look at this trend as a test.

Life evolves to new ground indeed. I hear 50 is the new 30.
