There are two kinds of people in this world. Those who can extrapolate from an incomplete set of data.

if you like jokes here's a joke annotating a chess game but it's all wrong

Chess Resume (I guess)

- I've never won anything because I don't ever play good enough to win anything. I only play just good enough to gain rating every tournament.
