    In fact even math is based on assumptions. (you can call the axoims that or you can call them rules of the game).

    Are you saying 2+2= 4 or 5?

    I say 2+2=4, but is just a convention it could be 11 if we used base 3

    It's always four regardless of base though.
    The convention is how we represent it.

    Well if we are going to look at that way, we could call apples oranges and vise versa!!! 😉

    What's in a name?
    That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.

    Well if a rose had originally been called a fart and a fart a rose we would be looking at it entirely different wouldn't we? 😉

    I know ratings don't really mean a whole lot on here....I'd like to use Mctayto as an example playing in the 1000's a good amount of the time, when he is actually between a 1400-1500 player!!!! Now, that is not using ones potential or SANDBAGGING!!! 😉

    He's 1500 at least, if not more, maybe even 1600.

    On my best day, I'm 1400-ish, and he beats the snot outta me.

    I agree....I have played him 8 times but they were in tournament not clan games I won 5, draw 1, loss 2, now I don't know how many he may have just let me win, to lower his rating and jack mine up....It makes so much sense to have the Clan rating seperated from the other ratings. Kind of make it harder to (sandbag) I would say.

    Perhaps it is not universal but to "trump" in UK is to fart.
    e.g. "Has someone just trumped around here?"
    Can also be used as a noun.
