    This could be a trick question. "Ruling" must mean "still alive" so perhaps it's the current Women's WCC  Alexandra Kosteniuk? (i was going to say Caissa from the Greek legend which has a very interesting story behind it).

    The answer is "Caissa". Hate to spoil it, there were so many good guesses.

    Well you're a titled player, and I sure don't picture you as much of a goddess. Laughing

    So the answer to your question is no.

    Well, from a "muppet's-eye" perpective, that could well be so..Tongue out

    Interesting legend, so thanks for posting it paul211. All i need to know now is how to "invoke" the Goddess's blessing on my games... perhaps i have to go naked as well...

    Seems to me if some otherworldly being is going to pay the huge price to export that much mass to escape velocity, it's probably not going to be for a 1973 Datsun.

    Now, a 1975 Lamborghini Countach is another story . . .

    That was a pic from a 2008 auction preview.  The estimate for the car was $425,000 to $525,000.  I reduced the size of the pic a tad for the forum-- if you want the original web pic here's the link to the original page, and it's the 9th or 10th car down the page.
