Microsoft founder, Bill Gates, who scored 1590 out of 1600 on his college SAT test, was checkmated by 23 yr. old Magnus Carlsen (who supposedly also plays poker) in 9 moves, taking only 1 minute and 20 seconds. During the match Gates was allowed 2 minutes to make his moves and Carlson was allowed only 30 seconds.

Idiotic.
I'd lend a hand, but it's stuck in the fist and gun position.

Gates is obviously an experienced player because he made a castling move which a novice would probably not do.

So is your overall point that Gates needed to get his comeuppance? That he isn't a good guy?

That castling line is super dumb too.

All that full on rapist behavior that Bill Gates shows. Wait, philanthropist behaviour. Donating billions to charity. Fcking guy needed a comeuppance

I think I just doubled down on Shake's comment, but I felt the need to make the full on rapist joke

Mexico makes a nice callback to Sunny and then Shake makes a nice callback to 2005.

Bill Gates nets an estimated $390,000 per hour for his skill set.

I'm sure he'd trade that in for the Chess skill set, no doubt, and take his place among the other 5000 Aspergers dicks all pining for Judit Polgar.

This is such a ridiculous story. Gates is a smart businessman, not an Ayn Rand character. If you told me that Albert Einstein had beaten the best American female, 12y/o and under, during his prime, I would be skeptical or attribute it to variance.
12. When menstruating, use a product that right for your menstrual flow. A tampon too big can irritate and develop fungus. A product left in too long can cause bacteria or fungus build up. Products can be changed at least every 4 hours. Except when sleeping, they can be left in for the night
