    92. You think suicide chess is where the loser must commit suicide...and you loose

    93. You get your rook, queen, and king forked by your opponent's knight, and when moving out of check, your opponent takes your rook and forks your king and queen

    94. You try to play the Sicilian dragon variation because it has the word "dragon" in it's name.

    95. You think the only way to beat the Sicilian is through the Yugoslav attack

    96. You refer to the English opening as "the white Sicilian"

    97. You fall for the trap in Petrov's defense

    98. You regularly confuse Kasparov with Karpov

    99. You think Bobby Fischer was a fisherman

    100. You try to castle when you're in check

    101. White has a king and pawn, black has a king only. You move the pawn and decide to promote your pawn into a knight, because by doing that you can check black's king. "CHECK!!!" You shout, proud of yourself for checking the king. You look back at the board and say "you're gonna resign yet, bro?"

    I think 93. is not possible for one opponent's knight alone because if queen is unmoved, she cannot be attacked by the  same knight again succesively (since knight move changes its color of attaking square)

    105. When you have a chance to fork a bishop, knight, and rook as well as check, but choose to take a pawn. (my teacher is not the best chess player)

    106. You show clear signs of being completed uneducated in simpler, more basic areas like speaking your own language!

    For example, the following by a British user.  Note the "spectacular" spelling (NOT! - Uhm, British English doesn't look like what is below - I know most differences between British and American, like colour vs color), grammar (NOT!), proper capitalization (more accurate would be "lack thereof"), use of apostrophes in contractions (again, lack thereof), etc:

    "

    Pls i just thought bout this. basicly when i play my games nd im calculatin i think ok if i do this he move there nd if i do this he cant go there etc... but i dont think if i go g7 he goes a1 or he cant go b2 because im blocking it wit my night on c9 or sumat... 

     

    but i notice all gud gms can go liek dat they talk bout the squares nd their doin it so fast that im still tryin to figure out wich square it is...

     

    so i guess my questin is it it beter if i think in terms of squaare cordinates when im calculatin... cos i recently wached video of sumone doin blindfold traini nd he solved the questin before i cud work out wich square a piece was etc..."
