I multitask, too ... make a move ... wait ... go to a forum ... post some nonsense ... make another move ... go to another forum .... post --- sounds like an afternoon well spent! Right?

Yes, playing chess and trolling in chess foruns are very addictive things and waste of time at some point.
Excellent! The first member of my new CC Anonomous Group!
Chess is a matter of vanity.
Whichever way you look at it, chess is as addictive as hell.
Chess will forever be one of mankind's most hedonistic creations.
Can you imagine the relief it gives a mother when her child amuses herself quietly for hours on end?
Chess is not relaxing ; it's stressful even if you win.
Chess is not for the faint-hearted; it absorbs a person entirely. To get to the bottom of this game, he has to give himself up into slavery. Chess is difficult, it demands work, serious reflection and zealous research.
For those who do, please leave this site. It is not for you.
Yes. I can, absolutely -- but maybe even more joy than relief, that her gifted daughter had found something engrossing, challenging, satisfying, and benign to do in her "free time."
Still, I'd also encourage her to join the family frequently, in other, less intense, more playful, group activities.
(Not Monopoly, though. Even in the healthiest families, that always ends with somebody knocking over the board and stomping out of the room, loudly excoriating someone else for their sheer "spite!" in refusing to sell Pennsylvania Avenue even though it wasn't doing Them any good at All! ...... ... or maybe that was just my family ... never mind.)
I haven't always been sure coz as we all know Chess is one game that takes too much time and emotion out of us!!
Chess is an alternate universe to live in for a while...
Nice -- it does seem to engage a whole different, more elegant part of the brain -- at least most of the time.
But then, one notices those ordinary, familiar thoughts and feelings intruding ... "oh, No, what a foolish thing I did"...... "Aha! How clever I am!" "Revenge! Revenge at last!" ... "Another loss? I really should study the game sometime .....nah, too much trouble..."
(Hard to stay in that pure alternate universe for very long, isn't it?)
"I failed to make the chess team because of my height. If only God would give me a clear sign to stop playing chess. . . like making a huge deposit in my name at a Swiss bank."
lol -- and great solution, kaynight! -- so, can I make the chess team if I lie about my age? Wait -- are those age and height requirements actually lies, themselves? Liar's poker -- so why not liar's chess? Why does my head hurt now?
