Chess, potpourri and nonsense!

LOST IN TRANSLATION ?!

TRANSLATION

The Candidates Tournament begins on Friday in Moscow and the organizers have tried hard to publicize the event by creating a storm amongst chess fans with a number of irritating ‘innovations‘ such as not allowing for LIVE broadcast by other websites. Who knows, maybe the chess community will simply boycott the official site!  In any case, Urcan is quite right when he points out that the above declaration by the organizers of the Candidates really is appalling nonsense.  Truth be said, it does not need to be translated into proper english…instead it needs to be re-written. Or better still:

Ah, it appears that killing your opponent during a game and eating his body parts is not as perfect a crime as it once was…I have been following this story for several years now on this blog (see HERE , as just one example) and when Bellante was found guilty by reason on insanity, I thought that that was the end to this maccabre affair.  But no!  Someone does not want a chessplayer to get off with an ‘insanity’ verdict and wants the case re-opened!  Read more HERE.

VINTAGE SKIRTS

I don’t get it!  Why buy a ‘mini-skirt‘ if you then need to shorten it?  UNLESS, ofcourse, the idea is to draw attention to yourself:

When she retired from active field work, apparently, Eve  took up a nice office job in the White House during the Clinton years…

The only way to get American’s to read a book is to somehow find a way to include in the title ‘Sex’, ‘Free’ or ‘Diet’ in the title.

Here’s an idea: what would happen if the Lady from L.U.S.T. met met up with the Man from O.R.G.Y.!?   Remember: you heard it here first!

Great cover!  Doesn’t have anything to do with the story line…

Whenever they write ‘For Adults Only’ it is really targetting the teen geek market.

I think Lou Reed must have read this book…

With a book cover like this, reading the story can only be a disappointment.
