”Winning isn’t everything. It is the ONLY thing.”
3-MEDALS AND A FUNERAL:
Notice Alexander Grischuk’s facial expression. This is how you feel when you tie for first place and then lose out on the gold by a hair….this explains also why Russia is such a great team: winning the gold is not a question of LIFE and DEATH, it is SOOOO…much more important than that!
Lev Aronian’s expression says it all! This is how you feel when you not just win the gold medal by a hair, BUT you beat out the RUSSIANS doing it!!
GO IRELAND GO!
The Irish Womens Team had a great Olympiad!
Monica Gedvilaite (on the left in the picture) gained the title of Women FIDE Master for her fantastic score of 7/9 (winning her last 7 games in a row). Karina Kruk (on the right) gained the title of Women Candidate Master for her score of 5/9.
BUT I AM A BIT CONFUSED…

Isn’t 87th (out of 150) a slightly better result than 80th (out of 127?)
BELIEVE IT OR NOT!
Serial -toilet-Arsonist terrorizes San Francisco!Yes, it is TRUE! For the past several months portable toilettes in the San Francisco area have been set ablaze by a serial arsonist! Here and here are just two published news stories about this!
Fortunately no one has been injured yet, but it is just a question of time before the arsonist hits the jackpot. Police have absolutely no idea of who is behind this criminal act, nor why he/she is doing this.
Writes the San Francisco Snitch:
”While the nauseating stench that lingers inside the mobile johns have certainly made us want to set fire to them, police warn that these small blazes can easily spread to nearby properties. In addition, it’s money being flushed down the toilet; companies renting out these toilets have told SF Weekly in the past that each blaze costs them roughly $750.”
I will keep my readers in the
poop loop as this story develops! If you are planning to take a vacation in San Francisco in the near future, be prepared!
”Flaming assholes, Batman! We have to save S.Francisco potties!”
