    "How do you keep track of which Bishop is which?"

    I guess that was a good question considering the person was a newbie.

  • #6363

    You n'wah!

    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 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.)
