Morphy. Americans are undefeated in World Wars. What the hell has Norway ever done?
Norway has being humane, avoiding any big wars, Norway hasnt bombed other countries nor throwed at them orange agent.
Settle down Mexico or we'll have to burn Santa Anna's wooden leg.
Settle down USA or we will have to stop selling you drugs. (Sorry CIA)
No! You win.
It would be a good match together
Make an account named Paul Morphy and Magnus Carlsen
I haven't met too many people who know about Santa Anna's difficutlies, including his prosthesis. Nice to meet you. +1
Remember the Alamo!
Israel is genocidal mob and army for fun, play the heck of others into bones.
Killing other races for fun
If Magnus lived in Morphy's day, Morphy would soundly beat him. If Morphy lived today, he would probably be an astrophysicist and rarely play chess.
He might even be a historian.
They are exactly equal
Google "Norway Heavy Water" and you might learn WHY the Americans ended up on the winning side.
They are both great. Morphy would easily be top 5 today imho.
It is very creative to think who is better, but, it is stupid simple to choose one of them.
Imagine this picture: Leonardo da Vici in his forties, today with laptop and internet for one or six months. What would he able to make?
Next: who is better singer Enrico Caruso, Mario Lanza or Pavarotti? All dead, but with some covered time.
At the end: who is better leader: Julius Caesar or Adolf Hitler?
As you see, we have to think a little bit wider?
Most people would not hesitate in choosing Caesar. He has a much better reputation. Singers are also not necessarily a great example, the arts and chess are quite different in some ways.
