    You are kidding, right? I mean, you'd pass up a chance to be world champion ?

    Yes. The question would be: How could I become a world champion?

    * training - I am probably far too old for that (anand is being called an old man)

    * sudden inspiration - I would not really like to play a game I couldn't understand myself.

    * vote by the chess playing population? I will tell you a story(no copyright infringement intended, it is not mine):
    The inhabitants of a wood had different opinions on who was the best singer, so they took a vote. The owl has been elected to suprewise the voting and count the votes. When she presented the results she said:
    "We have a clear winner and it is shameful. Only three creatures got votes: The donkey, the human and the nightingale.
    The human voted for himself, and this is a shame, but wasn't to be expected differently.
    The donkey knows he isn't a good singer and voted for the nightingale. This is honourable.
    Everybody else thought they maybe stood a chance, but only if they didn't give their wote to a probably opponent, but to the one creature which never stood a chance. And that is a real shame!"

    None of these appeal to me. I would go for:

    1. Eternal contenement
    2. Be born again as a man.
    3.To stop world suffering.

    You would *really* want to be reborn as a man?

    Really? ewwwwwwww...

    I'd have to kill myself if that happened.

    1. You try to trick people into releasing their names
    and addresses to a convicted felon.

    2. You ask people if they want to be a millionaire.

    Let me guess, # 3 is a thread where you reveal that
    you're the daughter of the deposed King of Nigeria,
    and would like help transferring lots of cash out of
    the country. All you ask is some small sum in order
    to arrange the banking issues involved. Right?
