    And why is cottage cheese so expensive?  I mean, who even likes it?

    I'm not trying to say titled players have wasted their time.  But for those that weren't whipped into masters before adulthood, you've had to spend a lot of time to get to where you are.  Basically I wonder if you ever regret it

    As for me, sometimes I do (until I come across threads like this one).

    I'm afraid you missed an important question that on a certain level affects us all: why does a kangaroo have three vagina's and two wombs? Maybe I should ask coach Heisman.

    I don't think the really intellectually rigorous stuff starts until you are ~2100- 2200 or so. then all of sudden improvement starts to come much slower than before, takes much longer, requires more consistent focus, study etc. you begin to have to "hone" calculation and visualization processes in a variety of semi-disturbing ways. and, finally, you have to start learning a little something about openings/theory.

    You're obviously not speaking from personal experience, so what are your sources for these beliefs?

    1) When you choose an opening do you choose it because of its

    a) variations

    b)tempo

    c)aggressive style?

    2) When you play is it your preference to use quiet development with deeper strategy or more forcing moves involving immediate tactics, and why?
