    In this thread on silly things I should perhaps mention the name of a new thread that I have just seen ( entitled " Chess Is a Waste Of Time " ). That thread was possibly started by a long lost relative of the late great Albert Einstein ? LOL !

    Speaking of silly threads someone has started a thread entitled " Can Justin Bieber become a GM ? ". That brings up another important question " Can a turkey become a Swan ??? ".

    This is a thread about silly stuff, the latest addition is ? How about a thread that is entitled: " Ban Castling " ( Nah, that's too silly  lol ).

    " How Chess Ruined My Life ! " is a title that seems to fit right into this thread on silly things. Yes there is a thread on the go here with that title and while a person's life could be ruined by a number of things I'm not sure that Chess is one of them.

    --- Thanks for the post Javan64, I got quite a chuckle out of that one. Mind you if I could be a young Canadian singer I would prefer to be Paul Brandt ( I hear that he is a nice guy as well as being a good singer ).

    At last there is a new FIDE rule that is not silly, cell-phones are being banned from venues hosting Chess game ( Question: what took so long ? ).

    In keeping with our theme re sillyness someone has asked the question ( as the title of a thread no less ) of the " Difference between a 1800 Player and a 1300 Player ". Well I looked  into this area very deeply and from many angles over quite some time. The numbers 1800 and 1300 are of course based on the elo rating system developed by Professor AE Elo. I do not presume to speak for the Professor but I believe that he might have said that one difference between these two types of players is somewhere around 500 points ( more or less ? ).

    I happened to see this thread that had me a bit worried ( Players disconnecting midgame will be flogged ). However as it turned out the last word in the title was " Flagged " not flogged, I may need new glasses I guess  lol.

    I see that the FIDE is busy now creating some silly new rules ( no Cell-phones etc ). This upsets me because as the unofficial " keeper " of the silly rules thread I have not been asked for my input. I plan to lodge a very serious complaint with whoever wins the FIDE election ( I just hope that it's not that UFO fan again ).

    I just spotted two threads on the go here ( " Lonely people play Chess " & " Do GMs have groupies ?? " ) and some questions came to mind. Are the groupies that the GMs have very lonely as the GMs have to travel around to play Chess ? Also how many groupies does a GM have, on average ?

    Someone has a thread on the go that asks: " Isn't resignation a form of disrespect ? ". That is a very interesting question ( I know that I've lost the game but I don't like you so I will NOT allow you to checkmate my King. Adios ! ).

    Cabby, following that cockamamie logic would also mean that beating someone is the ultimate disrespect! (Haha, I win. You are such a loser!)

    Thanks for the post Javan64. Good point and going further if we look back at the days of the Wild West if someone was slow on the draw with their revolver then they were a real loser  lol.

    I read a " Silly " thing the other day: Ilyumzhinov has been voted back in as FIDE president. So how do people feel about having the aliens in charge of Chess on this planet ? I mean the Pres has previously stated the he has been on a UFO so I imagine that he got a chip implanted in his brain at that time ( but I wonder why the aliens want to control Chess  lol ).

    There is a " silly " thread on the go here entitled: Comment Deleted. Well I could go on and on at length about how goofy that is, indeed I could use a lot stronger language but ... then ... ( THE REST OF THIS COMMENT IS DELETED ) lol.
