Bony fingers squeeze your windpipe,
Eyes glow red in the Reaper's skull,
Graveside still , he's the silent type,
His ways are effective but dull.
Tattered robe and a musty smell,
He said he had but one request,
Before he took his souls to Hell,
Tell me why women don't play chess!
I think you should call your poem Board to Death, ep
I went to a big toy store looking for a magnetic chess set. I asked a staff member about it and she said it would be in the boys' toys section.
Stunning! Toys and games are often grouped together in stores. And there are usually separate sections for "dolls" and "action figures." But Board Games?! Time warp again ... and, by the way, that story gives a pretty big hint about the answer to this forum's question. Check out "the problem that has no name" in Friedan's The Feminine Mystique.
never thought of writing poems about chess before, i think i might try it
Give it a try!
MIL: The USCF store has magnetic chess sets in several sizes. They are still on sale I think.
Because guys are more social. They like to do things with friends like go to clubs together and play games with people they know.
Girls take chess more seriously. They'd rather sit at home memorizing variations of the Sicilian defense.
Yeah, Waffle's probably right about that.
Scheviningen.. d3. Ok dragon is a fianchetto, I know that much...
Its hard after a couple of glasses of wine..... Schloznokov... d4.. ?
Yes, magnets are of no use to girls.
they are in themselves magnetic.
We "girls" have many powers. Some are not visible to the casual observer. But we have them. And we all know we have them. Oh, yes. And that almost makes up for our having so much less economic and political power. Almost. :-)
guys enjoy the company of guys more than girls do.
That illustrates the problem with generalizations. They're all false. ;-)
from most the girls i've talked to, they all seem more like "one of the guys" than (not then for you gramatical people) "one of the girls" and they're all in chess club.
