Random Online Player vs Me

1. e4 f5
2. exf5 Nf6
3. d4 d5
4. Bd3 e5
5. fxe6 Bxe6
6. Bg5 Nc6
7. c3 Bd6
8. Nf3 O-O
9. O-O h6
10. Bh4 Bg4
11. h3 Bxf3
12. Qxf3 b5
13. Qf5 b4?
figure 1. after 13 Qf5 ... black faces a threat by the white queen
a confusing move by black, the diagonal is open for the queen to come in, black understood what stands in the way and deems it too hard to defend, and hence plotted an escape route for its king. the ploy is to create diversion deep in white territory. I later realized that 13. Qf5 Ne4 is also an excellent move to unpin the knight on f6, while defusing the whole queen threat. A shift in momentum at this point will definitely help black's progress.

14. Qh7+ Kf7
15. Bg6+ Ke6
16. Qxg7 bxc3
17. Re1+ Ne5
18. dxe5 Bxe5
19. f4 cxb2!!
figure2. after 19. f4 ... white threatens an attack on the bishop on e5

at this point, the black passed pawn put on a lot of pressure on white to perform, with a blatant disregard for its king's safety. I also understand that I am actually playing against someone with not a lot of experience in trapping the king, otherwise my king is dead, many times over.

20. Rxe5+ Kd6
21. Re6+ Kxe6
22. f5+ Ke5
23. Bg3+ Kd4
24. Bf2+ Kd3
25. Qxh6 bxa1=Q
26. Qe3+ Kc4
27. Qc5+ Kd3
28. Qe3+ 0-1

at this point white resigned.

many blunders were made by both sides, but in any account this is one of the more beautiful games I have played in a while.

essentially, with a lot of sacrifices to queen the passed pawn paid off, and the white queen could not manage to trap the black king led me to win this game, albeit a near miss by white.

How to make a terminator in 7 easy steps

Materials needed: 1 metal endoskeleton, 1 microchip with conscience, regenerative skin and synthetic blood, mobile fusion power plant (battery).

1)Plug in nuclear reactor into slot on metal endoskeleton, make sure to fasten the terminals so it doesn't come off, but even if it is loose the terminator will be able to fix it himself anyway.

2) Cover surface of the metal endoskeleton with skin and blood.

3) Cut away holes for nostrils and eyesockets, (optional, since the terminator can do it itself after it is turned on)

4) Locate the chip socket on the skull. It is approximately seven inches to the left, 4 inches down from the top of the skull.

5) unscrew the socket by turning it counter clockwise.

6) insert chip into socket, and fasten it by screwing it back counter clockwise

7) Quickly run off to safety, the typical reboot time for a terminator model is 15 seconds. (it could vary according to the complexity and model type of the terminator).

Now that you have made a terminator, time to kick back and relax and see the world burn in an apocalyptic hell. But make sure you hide in an underground bunker first!

About this blog

A lot of stuff about what I think, and not what I am about. Which is good, because I would be able to make fun of Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Penn State, and discuss on our futility against Ohio State. (But Woo Shoelace!)

I still think the word "god" should not be capitalized, because like oxygen or air or universe, it's an entity, and is not specific or special in its meaning.
