damn lol, guess that figures...I keep getting e-mails and letters from USCF about these huge-ass tournaments, and I'm not even an active USCF member anymore lol, it's like, "over $200,000 in
guaranteed prize fund!" and yet, the entry cost and hotel rates just make me wanna smack someone lol
--um...idk why but that's a toughie XD
In Sixth Grade when I had to pick one, I picked 4 I think. or maybe I'm confusing it with someone else's number lmao, but it's as good a guess as any
Right now I'm just doing binary math in my projects like every damn day, so my instinct tells me that my answer should be 0 XD (an efficiency trick with branch checks and pseudo-functions).
About when did you learn how to play chess and by what means?
mine was always 7, and 3 (and 37); lately i've taken a favoring to 1
i learned to play chess with my grandpa, tho my strategy at that time was to pile all the pieces into the right-hand corner, and according to us the queen could also move like a knight.
hmm, favorite movies?
Interesting...you know as a smaller kid I think I always had a lucky-charm liking to the number 7 as well. 3, 7, and 37 are all prime numbers too (but of course not the number 1, which,
spontaneously, for reasons we'll never know, isn't "officially" either prime or composite :/)...in many ways though, 1 is even more important than 0...which somewhat seems to say a lot about nature in
And that thar :D, about when you learned to play, is also interesting...I always envisioned the queen + knight thing for a while too in the geometric 5x5 grid of conquering the board...was your
grandpa a well-known chess player (if not just socially I guess)?
oops, guess that was my question lol
Um...I'm a comedy kind of guy I think, so I liked seeing moves in theaters in such like Rat Race (prolly my first) and Scary Movie 3, um, Anger Management XD. But the very first *book* to totally
inspire me into reading was Hairy Pothead and the Chamber of Chamberpots, really exhilarated by that book, so I was thrilled by the movies or other action-genre movies as well. Matrix stuff, those
Spiderman hits, can't remember what else. I haven't watched TV in years, literally, lol.
If you suddenly were contracted with a million dollars under the guideline that you had to use it all within a week's time, how would you choose to distribute it (assuming you would)?
lol!! and another question that just occurred to me is if we just killed off the activity from everyone else in this thread, lmao...even the bots are afraid to post here, how flattering :D
I'd fly to the moon. I love the thought of being there.
If you could punch one person in the world in the face and get away with it, whom would it be?
no, my grandpa is the one who taught me that a queen can move like a horse. he knew the moves (well, almost) and that was about it. he was the city champion in squash once tho :)
hmm, a million dollars. depends on the circumstances, i should say; assuming otherwise normalcy, i would pay off the debts of my siblings (college, cars, house) and my wife's college loans, give them
each like 100k, probably buy myself another car, and invest the rest (longshot natural gas call options, and longshot apple put options (which is what i'm doing now, just with less $)). eventually
i'd like to buy a jet plane and learn to fly, tho that would take more than $1mil.
cats or dogs?
damn, that's what i get for getting up and making a salad in between writing and posting
would $1 million get you to the moon?
as for whom i would punch in the face, no idea. it's not really my style
doesn't look like it :( ... maybe if I fly north korean.
and cats, definitely. i'm not a dogs person.
Haven't played Squash...rarely like eating the shit either =D
And man, my mom's always investing the money and such, staying on top of finances, certainly didn't pay for any of my shit in college, but that sounds like a great way to distribute a million bucks
man. Easy way to solve a lot of problems...
^ Um, lol, I don't suppose Dragonball Z/Kai counts as a cartoon does it XD
Certainly nothing on Nick, except maybe Spongebob (fucking hated that channel), idk, South Park, Teen Titans, used to watch that kind of shit.
If a head shot is when you get shot in the head, what's a pimp shot?
"an alcoholic drink for true PIMPS, it contains 3 parts Couvosier, 1 part Orange Grand Marnier, and 1 part Vanilla Grand Marnier, chilled, served in a shot glass, with a splash of Grenadine"
- Urban dictionary
And dragonball is awesome. Spongebob too. You should check out the fairly oddparents, they rock.
