Job Description

Working as a recruitment consultant, I see some amusingly poor CVs and some odd job descriptions. The job description i was sent yesterday was the best i have received so far...

"Dear Sir/Madam,

As you are a recruitment firm in London, we will be glad if you can help us. In the below you can find some terms about employing of a manager.

My hunt for a middle aged, English, middle to high class manager familiar with the internal bazaar of England has been fruitless so far...

I am not sure if blogs on are supposed to be about chess but just in case they are how about this? I also played a couple of moves in some games of chess I am playing on facebook yesterday and i believe some people in Iran play chess too. Some of them, like  Ehsan Ghaem Maghami, are very good at it too.
