I have mixed feelings about him. Sure, it's cool. But I'm waaay to impatient for chess personally, and, being a student, chess far too often turns into drinking chess, which is a game where everyone looses.

As for the bacon discussion, I find it somewhat ironic that i'm a vegetarian, and I'm currently translating an article about (feel free to giggle now) sausage making.


When I was finishing school we had a game called chess. One player sat on a chair on opposite sides of the table from the other, and they were the only people who moved the pieces. Everyone else would stand about and shout, barrack, and advise moves. The latter led to disputes arising in the crowd who then took to fist fighting. All quite exciting. The crowd behaviour was just like at soccer in those days.

And in some places it still is. It's hard to tell the difference between a bunch of physicists watching chess and watching the winter olympics.

One of the people in that room did become a Rhodes scholar physicist and he taught me quite a bit of useful stuff about photography when I was just getting going.

Don't forget about the six hydrocoptic marzlevanes, so fitted to the ambifacient lunar waneshaft.
Until I saw that informative video I never new just how much Wayne impacted the development of the Turbo Encabulator.

Of course there is also the power being produced by the modial interaction of magneto reluctance and capacitive deractance. And the replacement of the original machine's prefabulated amulite surmounted by a malleable logarithmic casing as definitely and improvement over the original.

That's some very serious and complex scientific stuff going on there, to be sure.

I have nothing against chicken ovaries. That, my friend, is a question for my digestive system.

Do you realise that there are 79 entries referring to 'The man who would be Shirley'? Isn't that a dramatic stat? Or at least an interesting stat? Only two others have more; our fearless Mod and the dreaded hociR.

Actually, very few people, I suspect, eat chicken ovaries. The ova are quite tasty and commonly eaten though.

You beat me to it. What came first though - The chicken or the egg?
