Things I say to people who don't play chess:
"Switch your king and your queen."
"That's also illegal."
"That's illegal too."
"It's not a 'horse'."
"No, you cannot take the king."
and "No the king can't check the opponent's king. That doesn't even make sense." Funny enough I had to explain that today
This actually happened in my country. Some guy in the government tried to ban chess in schools because "it promotes obesity by sitting long hours thinking the next move."
IF YOU GONNA TAKE MY QUEEN IM GONNA STAB YA FOOL
Uh, really? The grandmasters I've seen are not even fat. Sounds like some kind of random complaint obviously not based on facts?!?!
I saw an interview with Vishy in which he talked at length about how important physical fitness and prowess was in chess, so that one has the stamina and fortitude to make it through a lengthy match.
They oughta have some quiet food to eat during games.
Yep, I believe it. ESPECIALLY at that level of chess. Phew.... can't even imagine....
Like yogurt? (If you can eat that without slurping it. Haha, slurping. Funny word.)
I play chess over lunch quite often.
In fact, I was playing at lunch one day last week. 1.e4...c5. And then a spectator said, "Wow, you guys got the queens off early."
My response, "They're for promotion. Queens are still on."
AKA FETT AKA FETT OI OI OI
It's actually quite easy
Vishy is an idiot. I can do five push-ups and my rating is ~1400. So to be the best in the world, one has only to be able to do about ten or eleven pushups.
