A $30 an hour salary is a little over 60k a year, most college educated people make at least that. What jobs require no college for 75 bucks an hour? I'm in!
This is similar to one of joeydvivre's lines.
Gavinator it is an underwater welder. Civilian side. you still have to get training. and you can only do it for 5 years. but actually most college educated people can't get a job at 60K a year because they major in something useless like English or Psycology... get a major in something using math and you will easily make that.
Who's fault is it for majoring in a low-paying major? If you want to be paid more, get a high paying major. It's your own fault if you choose to not make money lol...
Heres a refute.
1. e4 e5 2. Qh5 Nc6 3. Bc4 g6 4. Qf3 Nf6 5. Ne2 Bg7 (5... d5 6. exd5 Nb4 7. Qb3 Nbxd5 8. Bxd5 Qxd5 9. Qxd5 Nxd5 10. O-O Bf5
What do you think of my two lines, Gavinator???
After 6...Nb4, Bb5+ and I believe white is up at least a pawn. 5.d3 is bad, 5. Ne2.
I have only recently started reading this thread and needless to say I did not work through the entire thing as there is too much. What I am about to say might have been mentioned before ,apologies if it has.
my personal response to the Parham would be 3...Nh6 and 4...g6 .
Don't think Nf6 is such a great move.
g6 would lose to Qxe5+, and Nh6 just looks bad.
Unless your goal is to lose.... :)
Actually Qxe5+ would hang the queen, nice one.
Since this thread has over 1300 comments, and the best defence found was joey's, which still isn't very good, I decided to establish official Parham theory in this thread:
