Nov-19-12  Cemoblanca: Uusi 9mm! :D

Terminator: The 12-gauge auto-loader.
Clerk: That's Italian. You can go pump or auto.
Terminator: The .45 long slide, with laser sighting.
Clerk: These are brand new - we just got them in. That's a good gun. Just touch the trigger, the beam comes on and you put the red dot where you want the bullet to go. You can't miss. Anything else? Terminator: Phased plasma rifle in the 40-watt range. Clerk: Hey, just what you see pal.

Terminator: The Uzi nine millimeter. (That's exactly what I meant!) :D

Clerk: You know your weapons, buddy. Any one of these is ideal for home defense. So uh, which will it be? Terminator: All.
Clerk: I may close early today. There's a 15 day wait on the hand guns but the rifles you can take right now, and you have to fill these out too. [Terminator is loading slugs into the shotgun]
Clerk: You can't do that.
Terminator: Wrong. [Shoots Clerk]

  keypusher: <whiteshark> I doubt Petrosian needed Nimzowitsch to tell him doubled rooks on the 7th rank are powerful. But for his 33rd move, maybe he was inspired by Lasker.

Lasker vs Znosko-Borovsky, 1909

Apr-03-16  RookFile: I thought black played a pretty good game. He was kind of clever in the way he got the minor pieces exchanged off the board. When Petrosian played 29. Rd1, he saw deeper into the position than his opponent. Lo and behold, in a few moves, white is exploiting the 7th rank. I think that if black had toughened up his defense somewhere around move 28, he holds this.
