"How do you keep track of which Bishop is which?"
I guess that was a good question considering the person was a newbie.
True story. I was explaining to a non-chess playing friend of mine how some super players can play blindfolded games. His response was a classic of the oh, so stupid variety. Utterly amazed that anyone could play blindfolded, he asked, "Really? And are their hands tied behind their backs, too?" He was dead serious. I could only shake my head and mutter, "Only the ones who were about to be executed."
Another one we hear all the time is, "Waddya mean you can't jump?"
I lol-ed xD
[Everyone is playing chess] "Is this chess club?"
Zwindibum! Zwangdiuuum! ZHAKATAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAM!
Errr... Harry Potter spell? Another language? I've run out of guesses.
De do do do, de da da daIs all I want to say to you
I noticed at the club I used to go to for 10 years, that the non-player always had a mysterious friend who was a doctor, lawyer, engineer or scientist that could beat you easy, but never showed up.
lol, haha, yep I know exactly what you're talking about. (Also I like how you used "the non-player" as a variable in that sentence.)
(But who was "you"? Cause I have no idea...)
Well, I'm Newba.
Keep posting. We need to make this the longest thread ever.
