is there are simple list of principles ...I'll wait?
No, that would just be more strategy.
That is outrageous.
There are moves, principles, tactics, & strategies.
They are all different. A principle is to keep your rook on clear lines.
I asked TWO questions.
I make it clear by using different words for different meanings.
Your side kick is as bad as you are rolling on the floor laughing.
A man who thinks he's George Washington has been seeing a psychiatrist. He finishes up one session by telling him, "Tomorrow, we'll cross the Delaware and surprise them when they least expect it." As soon as he's gone, the psychiatrist picks up the phone and says, "King George, this is Benedict Arnold. I have the plans."
Well, you think you made it clear anyway...
I liked the joke though.
Different words have different meanings.
They have different listings.
Without words you cant even do mathematics.
Your depth is way too deep for me.
Do some more jokes!
there you go again.
I think you shoulod be clear about what you mean by 'joke'; and please define belief and god to save time from where this argument will go.
What is strategy anyway, and what is it good for? I have yet to win a single game because of my superior strategy
Chess is 99% avoidance of strategy. Who said that?
What I'm more interested in are vice principles.
Actually I would like to see a serious answer on the first question
You cant play 99% chess. the garndmasters i know all used strategy.
But before i condemn you what do YOU mean by strategy.?
As to Young AndyClifton this is a video short of himj in his arguments:
So would I.
And PLEASE NOTE I am NOT seeking strategy but TACTICS which is a lower level.
No... jokes are more like cheap tactics. Please give some strategic philosophical reflections.
As a sidenote Count Rugen, I must say that in a short span of time you have developed yourself to the level of a most excellent forum troller, my congratulations, keep up the good work
A stranger was seated next to a little girl on the airplane when the stranger turned to her and said, ‘Let’s talk. I've heard that flights go quicker if youstrike up a conversation with your fellow passenger.'The little girl, who had just opened her book, closed it slowly and said to the stranger, 'What would you like to talk about?''Oh, I don't know,' said the stranger. 'How about nuclear power?' and he smiles.OK, ' she said. 'That could be an interesting topic. But let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff - grass - . Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, and a horse produces clumps of dried grass. Why do you suppose that is?'The stranger, visibly surprised by the little girl's intelligence, thinks about it and says, 'Hmmm, I have no idea.'To which the little girl replies, 'Do you really feel qualified to discuss nuclear power when you don't know crap?
Whoever said russians have a lousy sense of humour...."don't know shit!"
