Chess rating: International Grand Mister

Voted Funniest Kibitzer 8 years in a row. Lost to the great <WannaBe>.

Inventor of the successful Secret Formula to win the pick 3 lottery. Will now work on the pick 4.

Favorite word on a forum:


The great Maria Callas in the sextet from Lucia de Lammermoor. (Well, Maria Callas and 5 other great singers):

Brahms Violin Concerto w/Hillary Hahn:

The greatest musical talent of the 20th century was female. Probably the name is unknown to many. Her name:

Nadia Boulanger

Carlos Gardel:

"If I forget thee, O Jerusalem,
let my right hand forget her cunning
If I do not remember thee,
let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth;
if I prefer not (an undivided) Jerusalem above my chief joy..."

Technical draw is a fictional character living in the collective vision of chess who has little relationship to the real technical draw; a neurotic and insecure figure obsessively clinging to the promise of power and wealth as if it were the only meaning in his life. He is also a made man in the Gambino family. He is also the man who shot Liberty Valence.

"When You have a brilliant mind you have a special obligation" (from A Beautiful Mind)

"I must believe that something extraordinary is possible" (from A Beautiful Mind)

How the CIA operates (long read):

"You have to be bad at something before you can be good at it."

Cuando siegues tu mies en tu campo, y olvides alguna gavilla en el campo, no volverás para recogerla; será para el extranjero, para el huérfano y para la viuda; para que te bendiga Jehová tu Dios en toda obra de tus manos.

When thou cuttest down thine harvest in thy field, and hast forgot a sheaf in the field, thou shalt not go again to fetch it: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow: that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all the work of thine hands.

(Deut. 24:19)

technical draw: <But if there is anything the October 7 massacre showed, it is that Israel's strategy of "managing the conflict" failed.> I think it shows that Hamas are savages and you cannot "manage a conflict" with savages.

technical draw: <Fusilli> Tchaikovsky was not only a master of melody he was also a genius at pizzicato. Heres a sample from the 3rd movement of his 4th symphony:
   Sep-08-23 V Winz vs M Feigin, 1941
technical draw: Nice name for a chess player. Both Victor and Winz. That has to be a made up name.
   Sep-04-23 P Scheller vs Gruenfeld, 1918
technical draw: Where's the rest of the game?
   Aug-26-23 McShane vs A Picana, 2010

  technical draw: <diceman> <The thing I notice in 2023, is how much they sound like the band Chicago.>

True. It's the heavy brass sound that they both have.

  technical draw: Things that keep me awake at night #29:

How did the inventor of Jeans know that in the future they were going to invent an I-Phone so he decided to place a back pocket of a perfect size? The guy was a genius.

  playground player: <TD> What did drinkers call the Shirley Temple before Shirley Temple was famous? (No, I don't know.)
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <pp> There was no Shirley Temple (drink) before Shirley Temple (actress).
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Hold on a second, a Shirley Temple may have been called a fruit punch since it does not contain alcohol.

  technical draw: It has been said that the worst movie ever made is "Plan 9 From Outer Space". I've been watching it for about 20 minutes and so far I can say that it has the worse acting, worse direction, and worse special effects that I have ever seen. Bela Lugosi died while making this movie and another actor continued his part by covering his face Dracula style. I'm going to watch it all the way through just so I can say I did. It's actually the poor man's Independence Day. Here you can watch it too:

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Ok, I just finished "Plan 9 from Outer Space" and it is bad, real bad. What really made me laugh was the cops waving around their guns willy nilly. And all the fake electronics. I worked communications in the army I can tell you that one of the "alien" instruments is just a plain old variable oscillator.

As bad as Plan 9 is it is not the worse movie that I have ever seen. No, that dubious honor goes to "Birdemic". Talk about awful!

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Just to compare bad movies here's "Birdemic". Tell me it's the worse move ever!

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <Tell me it's the worse move ever!>

I meant the worse movie ever. The worse move ever I made in a chess game in 2003.

  technical draw: What do Brazilians call Brazil Nuts? "Nuts from here"? "Our Nuts"? Or just plain "Nuts"? And did you know that all the restaurants in China are Chinese restaurants? A McDonalds in China is a Chinese restaurant. Spooky, right?

  technical draw: We always hear Tchaikovsky's symphonies 4, 5, and 6. How about 1, 2, and 3? Not so much. So here's Tchaikovsky symphony #1:

  technical draw: After seeing those two great films of all time "Plan 9 From Outer Space" and "Birdemic" I am now watching that great Japanese film noir classic "Mothra". The internet is great!

  technical draw: Next Saturday will be November 18, 2023. So what? Well on that day I will be 20 years on 20 years of trying to educate you guy and all for naught. No one has purchased my secret formula to win the pick 3 lottery, and some have not even laughed at my great jokes. And as Greta would say, How dare you!

I can't believe I have wasted 20 years of my life on this site. My chess has not improved but my typing has.

All joking aside it's been a pleasure to be on this site with all the good friends I have made over the years. I won't make a list lest I miss someone but cheers and a lot of respect to all!

(I am posting this today instead of Saturday because I would probably forget by Saturday)

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <TD> You mean tomorrow, or THIS Saturday, not Next Saturday, which would be 25th Nov.


Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Good ole <WannaBe> Thanks for replying but if you read correctly I give the date of the particular Saturday, November 18. Which gives you only two days to pay me my $20 humor fee which my records indicate that you have never paid. Ok, all debts will be forgiven on my 20th.

  technical draw: Well, today is my 20th year anniversary. I have been on for 20 years. It all started as a scientific experiment. The question was: Can a person last 20 years on a site by saying dumb things everyday? And the answer is a resounding YES!

Sociologists in the future will study my tenure here on CGs and marvel at the results. They will wonder why I wasn't kicked out in the first few weeks. But most of all they will wonder why nobody bought my secret formula to win the pick three lottery.

Seriously, its been a pleasure being on this site for so long and having so many unseen friends. So here's to the next 20, cheers!

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Happy 20th anniversary, for wedding it would be a gift of China, but instead of plates or bowls, you got me.

  juan31: < TD> Felicidades por tus 20 años, en mi caso cuando tus comentarios están dirigidos a pasar un momento alegre, lo logran. Saludos
