Chinese Health Balls and Chess

I have discovered something that I know most people will not believe. The vast majority of people on planet earth are small minded and empty headed. Chess players are supposedly different and so I will tell it to you. My discovery is Chinese Health Balls. These are steel balls you hold in your hand and twirl around. They stimulate the acupuncture points in your hand which is connected to the heart and brain and other vital and not so vital organs, thus stimulating them. Whether or not one believes in Chinese medicine I have found these balls are very relaxing and perhaps that is how they work, by relaxing you. Regardless--notice I didn't say, "irregardless"--in addition to improving my overall health, I have found using these balls has improved my chess game. Believe it or don't.
