Nice but what does it have to do with Pythagoras?

I'm not certain but I think it had something to do with the light square bishop on that long diagonal like a high pot en yoos .

iusegambits is perfectly correct about the intended reference to Pythagoras's theorem though he makes a mistake about the name of the diagonal : hypotenuse . I googled and discovered this interesting fact: the book The Pythagorean Proposition contains 370 different proofs of the theorem . A former US president James A. Garfield ( 1831-1881) provided one, making himself the only American president to prove a math theorem.
