    Believe it. Too much strength isn't always a blessing. Unless the King is in check, you
    have to give your opponent a place to make a legal move. Otherwise, it's a stalemate.

    Like going to a shopping mall and forgetting where you parked your car?

    I don't have a car but I can imagine how it would feel - that would be worse than stalemate, I suppose...

    Stalemate isn't so bad. It's better than chicken pox or tennis elbow.

    Well maybe you're right. I have lost a game like that and I hope it will never happen again. I still remember the feeling but I have forgotten how I felt when I had chicken pox, so you see...

    Wouldn't it be great if they developed a vaccine for stalemate?

    🙂 I'm happy as long as you don't stalemate me. By the look of things, I don't think I have to worry about that.

    I wouldn't stalemate you if my life depended on it.
