    All Steven Seagal films have one of the following plot lines..

    1. Seagal is after some son of a b**** who has kidnapped his daughter.

    2. Seagal is after some son of a b**** who put him in jail for a crime he didn't commit.

    3. Seagal side-steps or trips over the guards who are protecting the son of a b**** who committed plot line 1 or 2.

    4. Seagal always wakes up in the middle of the night after a bad dream, only for it to become reality.

    5. In some point in any Seagal film, he walks over to someone with a gun, and somehow twists the gun around, where he then shoots the crook.

    6. Always wears the the same leather black long Trench coat, which is resistant to all weather, gun shots, knife blades and even the grease off his pony tail. It also makes him look 20 lbs lighter and allows him to kick swiftly and hide magical bullets in the pockets.

    7. MUST MUST MUST have an Asian/Oriental element.

    8. A female half the age of Seagal must be fascinated by him or at least have a make out session with him.

    He is probably an Azeri.

    HE'S AN ARMENIAN FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh and my least favorite? Though I greatly admire Alekhine's playing style, I'm Jewish, so I am strongly offended by his sympathization with the Nazis.

    Though I can certainly understand and sympathize with Jews who feel persecuted and/or who have hatred for their former opressors and their allies... However, wasn't even Lot and his family righteous in a despicable group of people? Simply hating all for what some or most do isn't right. Aside from that, it is generally frowned upon to make such strong political and anti-ethnic/nationality ascertions. Aside from that, one of my favorite chess players is Tigran Petrosian. He was Armenian born, but I know nothing of his beliefs. I'll admit it would be a huge blow to me if I found out he despised what I believe in, but I couldn't stop respecting his play. In fact, as long as he never was outwardly wicked to anyone, I would have to simply respect his right to believe what he wants. The truth to many is a lie to others and they have never been taught any better. It isn't fair to hate them for their ignorance. I reserve contempt for those that I know , know better. The Aramenians held an ancient grudge against Israel....most of the people involved in the 1940's didn't even know the history for the grudge. Just like most people today barely remember what happened in WW2 . People who practice racism should be pitied far more than hated. They are too ignorant to hate...

    Yes, of course - but I read pfren as suggesting that Bubble1997, not Aronian, is an Azeri (or has Azeri sympathies). However, as nameno1had said, simply hating all for what some or most do isn't right.

    Like Azeri star Teimour Radjabov said, when asked about Aronian: "The enemy is the enemy!"

    I don't know the context of his remark, sorry - what exactly did he mean?

    @ Fburton

    Radjabov is Azeri (which is largely Islamic), Aronian is Armenian, (which is largely Christian)

    So naturally, these two tiny countries have been at war with each other for the last 4000 years. Or so.

    Not sure how it all started. But I am certain the origins of this conflict involved goats. Somehow.

    I dont like Salo Flohr because he plays just like me but was more successful at it.

    And somehow Fischer's name never occurred to you?  Looks like you've got some reading to do.

    I don't like Fischer either, but for other reasons as well: He was a sore loser - when he lost to the King's Gambit, he published a bunch of stuff on how it was terrible.

    Impossible Islam nor Christianity any where near that old.

    Sure they are. They both claim to have begun with Abraham.

    Besides, I am sure the Azeri and Armenians were both fighting back then, too. Just with different names, different churches, is all.

    Islam started with Muhammad not Abraham and that is 1400 years old and Christ is only 2000 years old.

    Kramnik because his style is very boring.  The strange antics in the match vs. Topalov doesn't help.  (I don't really like Topalov either.)

    My favorites:

    Capablanca

    Karpov (on the Black pieces)

    Anand
