Really? My heart races when German Shepherds are chewing on me. I'm pretty sure that's not good for me.
Just remember what Nietzsche said: "What doesn't kill you makes you go to the emergency room." (Those German philosophers really knew stuff, didn't they?)
It's like they just read How to Win Friends and Influence People!
Pain is weakness leaving the body.
Pain is weak chess moves leaving your noggin and manifesting on the chess board in front of you, for all the world to see.
all this talk about good vs bad has got me remembering that I dont really care about whats good or bad...the only thing that matters truely is to enjoy the ride before my train leaves (for good)
"If It Feels Good, Do It!" "Make Love, Not War!" "Flower Power!"
(Chess must be bad for the brain -- all I can remember now is slogans from the '60's ... sad, just sad ...)
If it feels bad, do it!
I will ask my brain to see what it thinks and the answer is there is no way known to reverse entropy that's the last time I consult it on anything
Does this happen often, bp? I think I could help you with some strategies to avoid these events in the future.
The decade of the sixties travelled past
Like the afternoon flight of a white dove
Leaving ideas. Some did some didn't last.
End war, civil rights, the summer of love.
lol -- a generous offer! I'd take him up on it.
I dont know, maybe you coulda asked Fischer how he somehow avoided mental asylums before he died...Steinitz couldnt avoid the mental asylum in New york where he died... Rubinstein died while suffering from schizophrenia & anthropophobia in his last days...Alekhine was put in a mental hospital 1943 just 3 years before he died.
3 out of 4 of these guys are on the all time Top 10 chess players! The fourth one Rubinstein was top 40 all time. What does all this tell you about chess being really good for the brain?
The brain is not the mind.
The mind is what the brain does.
Once was enough. I think the best strategy would be to quit my job.
Dude, I know those PED's are expensive, but what job is that?
Oh, bp, I could have told you "German Shepherd Jaw Pressure Tester" usually does turn out to be a more stressful job than people might imagine. Do you have any other skills?
It's a tough job, but somebody's gotta' do it.
lol @ bigpoison!
If you enjoy chess then it must be good because it produces a good feeling and when you lose it makes you feel bad
