LOL! I'm not sure if that last sequence is funny or disturbing, I guess a little of both.
Is that Barney Google, with the Goo-goo-googly eyes?

Are they related?
Obviously a chess player:
Now flay away, little startling!
Fly! Fly! Fly!
If my opponent wants to stare at me, he/she can enjoy looking at me with these on:
Is double taping one of those nudie cards to your forehead considered wrong?
Yes! Tape is completely offensive!!!
(But using rubber glue is acceptable.)
Maybe a nail gun
And thumb tacks.
wire an actual nude woman to your cranium..there..you wanna have a staredown now, punk??? hey..im lookin atchu!!!
Or get Clint Eastwood to stand next to you, your opponent would come unglued!
Wahaahahhaaha... That pic was really horrible.. I dont know about others but that women and man will really win a game against me.. Lolzz
Not Chuck Norris?
My opponent would only come unglued, wondering why Clint was talking to that empty chair.......
I rarely stare at my opponent, because I don't have time or care to know what he looks like. Or she. Think about it this way. If you stare at your opponent, it's like a weakness. You're trying to intimidate them, which does almost nothing against higher rated players and is useless against lower rated players because odds are, the lower rated player is already intimidated. I rather just stare at the board or anywhere other than my opponent. I'd rather them think I am soulless or don't respect them enough to give them the humanity of a stare.
I've actually had an IM come up to me after a game (I wasn't playing him) and tell me that I'd be frightening to play against because I show no emotion during the game. Which is quite ironic, because I tend to show a lot of emotion when not in a chess game. He said I never looked at the opponent and kept my eyes on the board when I was at the board (I have a tendency to get up a lot and check out other games). I used to wear a ballcap when playing chess games so my opponent couldn't see my eyes or where at the board they were staring. Nowadays I clasp both hands together and put that on my forehead to act as a makeshift ballcap to cover my eyes.
Oh good idea.. I will try the cap..
