  fredthebear: Even Black can see (it's a blindfold simultaneous exhibition game) that White intends f5 next. The White rook can move from danger, but the White knight is pinned to the g-file and will be taken by the pawn thrust.

  fredthebear: Fredthebear is red-green color blind, but he can tell the difference between white and black. FTB meant to say BLACK rook (Re6) and BLACK knight (Ng6) in the final position. Due to the pin, the Black knight is a gonner.

We all make mistakes now and then. Here's one in the news a couple days ago...

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said at the close of her press briefing on Thursday (Dec. 6, 2018) that the United States has three coasts, "North, South and West.'"

"We can move forward with this," Pelosi said. "We have a responsibility, all of us, to secure our borders, North, South, and coming in by plane on our coasts, three coasts--North, South and West--and that's the responsibility we honor. But we do so by honoring our values as well."

For those who are confused, the USA has a West Coast, East Coast, and Gulf Coast to the South. The USA shares it's Northern border with Canada and it's Southern border with Mexico. Let's hope the government knows enough to secure them all.
