42 ( +1 | -1 ) Too tired too playThat will teach me to play when tired. Ive been doing pretty well since I started, but have been logging on more often to check moves. Got woken up last night and decided to check if I had to make any moves. I made my moves which seemed great at the time, now ive checked them and they are about the worst moves I could have possibly made :(
14 ( +1 | -1 ) Thanks for the adviceI tend to use Coca Cola for my caffine kick. Ive managed to recover from in 3 of the games and get back the material dissadvantage, but I think 1 is lost.
104 ( +1 | -1 ) The perfect cup of coffeeThis is the old method of brewing (as far as I know it does not work in new auto brewers).
1) add an extra spoonful of coffee beans and boil.
2) when the coffee boils, add half as much water as normal. add more coffee, raturn to element to boil again.
3) allow to boil (depends on stove, can be a minute to several) until coffee is back to original level
If done correctly this should yeild an argueable drinkable liquid (again argueable) with the consistency of tar. If this is not achieved, repeats steps 2 and 3. Depending on personal appliances there may have to be some individualization of the recipie, but when perfection is achieved all other caffinated beverages seem weak.
You will have to excuse me if this is not the exact reicipie, I stumbled across this during a 4 week sleepless period of cramming/catchup due to slacking off of schoolwork during the football season... I cant remember much of it other than building a small castle out of used Tim Horton's coffee cups (before I found this gem).
57 ( +1 | -1 ) WaterI have recently introduced a new line into British Supermarkets, it is selling very well. It is called "Peckham De-Caffeinated Spa Water" and it is made by a unique process.
Step One - We draw the water from the Peckham Spa
Step Two - We artificially Caffeinate the water
Step Three - With our unique @Patent Pending technique we remove all traces of caffeine from the water
Step Four - We bottle it and sell it to Supermarkets and health shops.
Sales are going great and I hope soon to be able to retire and devote all my time to Chess.
30 ( +1 | -1 ) frodanSteps Two and Three are absolutely vital to the process, we do them for all of our bottles...honest we do. I do have a very serious gripe though, it's my bl***y water rates. The old woman in the flat above only pays £45 for her water rates, my last bill was £17,347, I mean, I ask you, how on earth can my tap water bill be so high ?? It's a disgrace.
20 ( +1 | -1 ) Cal.......maybe your landlady discovered you were selling caffeinated water and was: (a)not amused or, (b)decided to cash in on your bundle...or maybe: -you've not paid your bill for the last several years...
13 ( +1 | -1 ) frodan.......or maybe I'm just bottling plain old tap water and giving it the fancy name of "Peckham De-Caffeinated Spa Water" to get a premium price for it !!
9 ( +1 | -1 ) I don'timagine an honest person like you would do such a thing, so it cant be that.
6 ( +1 | -1 ) ...adrianallen.....you would be surprised at the things people do for the almighty buck....
38 ( +1 | -1 ) In praise of PeckhamThe english sense of humour doesn't travel well. I should explain that Peckham is one of the grubbiest, dirtiest suburbs of London. The very idea that such a blot on the landscape could produce sparkling clear Spa water is somewhat preposterous to anyone living in the UK.
I don't think I will get rich selling Peckham De-Caffeinated Spa Water......more's the shame !!
