    After watching the horrific events of Very Rustys very suspicious game we know have the opportunity to see how a Zen Master of the chessboard makes moves. It is said that a Shaolin priest cannot be seen, cannot be heard and can walk through walls, let this game stand as a testimony to the art of lemondrop! Zen Master!

    My dear old, there are levels of understanding. Lemondrop has the understanding of a Zen Master, look how with his light touch with the chess pieces he left not a trace as he effortlessly overcame his opponent by a strategy of gentle disengagement.

    Sir,
    All he did was put his pieces back where they all were at the beginning of the game,gaining a bishop for his efforts. White should have no problem to win that game as they have a space and positional advantage now, even down a Bishop.

    You claim he is a Zen Master, what does that have to do with chess? He has a high rating of 1300! At least that is what his graft shows.

    Zen master is a somewhat vague English term that arose in the first half of the 20th century, sometimes used to refer to an individual who teaches Zen Buddhist meditation and practices, usually implying longtime study and subsequent authorization to teach and transmit the tradition themselves.

    Karma is still nipping at your butt,
    Have a great day,
    Sincerely,

    The Zen Master gave you a room full of mirrors.

    It's been apparent for some time that there's more to Lemondrop than meets the eye.

    I actually thing there's less to Lemondrop than meets the eye.

    Or so his ex-boyfriend claims.

    On what conceivable planet is "Come to the temple door tomorrow morning" a rational, intelligent or even sane response to the suggestion that there is more to someone than meets the eye? Or even less, as radioactive suggests?

    As to mirrors, it's hard to avoid the feeling that you draft your posts while looking into one, Robbie.
