  1. Murph defeats Johnnycakes 5-4. Fun game. https://backgammongalaxy.com/match/6798300
  2. Can you elaborate on this? Where are young people without established credit getting better terms on unsecured loans? Loans that, if used properly, can greatly increase ones lifetime earning potential.
  3. Yeah, considered both. Having gone through the experience, this is correct.

  5. Tried to put it in a spoiler box to keep post size down. But I'm dumb. 1. d4 d5 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 f5 4. Nf3 Nf6 5. Bf4 c6 6. e3 Bd6 7. Bxd6 Qxd6 8. c5 Qc7 9. Be2 Nbd7 10. O-O O-O 11.

  6. Let the record show Tim is the undisputed champ. Good game. I immediately regretted 11. Ng5. I'll be curious what the engine says. I don't know that it was an outright blunder, but from that point it felt like you were always one step ahead.
  7. Murph defeats CletiusMaximus 5-2. The dice were very kind to me.
  8. Playing now if anyone wants to watch: https://backgammongalaxy.com/match/6625470
  9. Murph defeats Juxtatarot (1-0) Thanks to Tim for organizing and thanks to all the players. This was really fun.
  10. I think it's possible that a handful of Mega Corporations can control enough of the economy so as to be essentially above the law. And to exert as much control over the lives of everyday people as the government. And at that point we would be a democracy in name only. I also fear we are dangerously close to that point if not there already.
  11. Doesn't it though? It cut off Vine's ability to access information about a users Facebook friends in violation of its own policy to only do so with apps that did not share back to Facebook (which Vine did). Leaked documents later showed that Zuck personally approved this. It also frequently buys competitors for the express purpose of stifling competition (which Zuck was dumb enough to explicitly state in multiple emails). If we had a government that cared even a little about enforcing antitrust I think Facebook would have a hell of a time avoiding being a broken up.
  12. Maurile can you elaborate on this a bit? In your opinion, can a private company ever be large enough to abuse power? Did Standard Oil or the railroad trusts abuse power?
  13. Student debt cancellation is the Democrats version of the Trump tax cuts. Neither is based on sound economic policy. Both are giveaways to important voting blocs.
  14. Not a serious player by any measure but definitely up for a game or a tournament.
  15. A modest proposal: let's eliminate all team names so we can stop having the same awful discussions over and over again. Yes, this is letting the terrorists win. But it's just so tiresome.
  16. If this is the new rule I'm going to have to start posting more frequently.
  17. Do whatever you feel like doing IMO. Nothing wrong with the first school of thought, but I'm probably not going to force my opponent to demonstrate their ability to execute a K+Q vs. K mate. On the other hand, endgames are hard and even good players can let their opponent back into the game from a winning position. In general I don't think resigning (or not) is reflective of sportsmanship (or lack thereof). But my one pet peeve is that if your opponent has a nice mating combination I think it's kind of lame to resign instead of letting them play it out.
  18. Help! is my favorite Beatles album and I kinda like Mr. Moonlight. I feel personally attacked right now
  19. Invite sent. No rush. Happy Birthday AAABatteries Grandma!
  20. Count me as another super-fan of this song. My wife and I used it in our wedding.
