This is a blog to discuss philosophy, chess, politics,
C. S. Lewis, or whatever it is that I'm in the mood to discuss.
I hope that Chuy's is a Chinese restaurant and not Russian, because Chuy is an extremely vulgar word in Russian.I remember reading last year about a man in Japan being murdered because of something his virtual character did in one of those fantasy world internet games that people play.So games can be dangerous!
It serves American and Mexican food.
Where I live on Long Island, NY, things seem to be really unravelling morally:1. Police search for driver who ran down Lake Grove man.http://www.news12.com/articleDetail.jsp?regionId=1®ion_name=LI&articleId=289472&position=1&news_type=news2. Police: Long Island Taxi Driver Stabbed Over Farehttp://newyork.cbslocal.com/2011/08/13/police-long-island-taxi-driver-stabbed-over-fare/3. Riverhead bank robbery suspect arrestedhttp://www.riverheadlocal.com/local-news-content/2949-riverhead-bank-robbery-suspect-arrested-in-southampton-yesterday- No real surprise I guess, we've banned references to objective morality from education and government institutions.
I have wanted to stab myself during chess games for making silly mistakes. E.g., I was about to win a tournament, was in clear first had won all my games. I was playing really well in the final game before I hung a rook about an hour in. It was a move I had looked at multiple times on previous moves and not made because it hung a rook. Suck. So I can definitely understand the stabbing urge, just not usually my opponent.
Makes you wonder whether those chess playing computers have ever felt the urge to just go to the Blue Screen of Death!
I would laugh if this weren't so sad.
I hope no one is actually laughing at the stabbing (and I doubt anyone is), but it is objectively funny how seriously some people take the most trivial things.I belong to an amateur astronomy club here in Maryland, and at a recent observing event, I watched in amazement as two members practically came to blows over what color a star was that they were looking at. (Well, not really, but the argument grew very heated indeed.)So "Good Luck" if you think the Christians and Atheists on this website are ever going to come to terms. At least we're not stabbing each other!
Must have been an angry atheist . . .
Trying to get a mate can be fraught with danger.
B. Prokop, I'm afraid that if it were possible to send punches through the internet, both Victor and Loftus would get black eyes at the end of the day.
I don't play chess on moral grounds :P
I thought it was going to be the waiter who did the stabbing because they were dominating a table long enough to play a game of chess. Less tables to wait on = fewer tips.
Oh God! I fear for BDK he is a chess enthusiast? He better wear body armor.Just saying.
