What if it's discovered the Standard Model is wrong, and the Higgs boson doesn't exist?
Now he drinks all the time.
Technically, I think it's a mental disease.
anything it takes to get lordnazgul to call me an idiot, or woodshover to call me an asshole.
So a sport then, as well?
Flags, I don't think you have to exert yourself to see these happen
Who would be stupid enough to call this a sport? The only exercise you get is delts/triceps/biceps from lifting and extending your arm to move pieces.
noun: An activity involving physical exertion...
Play a 30 minute game like you were playing Lightning.
1)You'll move your arm so fast it's like a workout.
2)When you lose an important game because of the advice of some guy on the internet, you'll work even more muscles banging your head on tables.
at the rate of lightning, it couldn't hit 30 minutes. One would hit the 50 move rule, or not be able to advance any pawns. Either way, chess isn't a sport as a Corvette isn't a family car.
But, is arguing about whether chess is a sport or a game a sport or a game? Ya'll are going off topic.
It's a spart.
"No it isn't!"
But wait: what if that is...?
