Death by Chess

shadowcat53

I had once heard of two chess players playing and a soft pop was heard ...one of the chess players had dropped dead  by a brain aneurysm ...also what is the association with death and chess , is it because it's such an ancient game ,imagine   the different players throughout  the ages ....maybe chess and karma travel with you..

WHY ... is it the mention of Death...we all die...or is it the making love  comment...which is why we are all here in the first place and will experience death eventually . I like the Mexican way of celebrating Death and not being afraid.

I'll  give 20 bucks and 1 cent for that cat

Does your cat resemble this guy? If so, I'll go as high as $30!

AlCzervik

Well, then, I take back my offer.

AlCzervik

$20 and one cent might sound pretty good now, eh?

Do I get a vote?

I think that death is one of two things: either it will be akin to an eternal slumber, or it will be a place like they tell in the stories in Hades, where just men go to the Elysium fields and I can question people in my usual fashion like Odysseus or Ajax. Whichever it is, it is good, and though I go to die, I do not know if I will go to the better place, or if you, the men of Athens will be better off here.

not that I'm afraid to die I just don't want to be there when it happens...
