    That's why I come to these threads... I can be idle and pretend to be doing something at the same time. Reveal Hidden Content
    Multitasking for Idiots is a helpful guide

    ... or would be a helpful guide, but a procrastinator was put in charge of writing it

    CP's history of Irish people.
    A few Limeys decided to move elsewhere and not be so snobbish.

    Little known fact: It was an Irish cowboy who was responsible for the en passant move.

    A wealthy French businessman was traveling through the old west, and he visited a tavern at one of his stops. He noticed two cowboys engaged in a game of chess so he went over to observe. One of them pushed his pawn two squares to avoid his opponents pawn, and this made the opponent (the Irish cowboy) very angry. He was heard to say "I'm taking you on, piss ant!", and he took the first fellows pawn and placed his own pawn on the square the first fellows pawn would have been if the first fellow (not an Irish cowboy) had only moved one square.

    The Frenchman was so amused by this he told all his friends about it, and within a few years you could hear chess players all throughout France saying "I'm taking you en passant!" The original meaning was lost in translation, but it doesn't really matter... it all worked out for the betterment of the game.

    Come on you slackers! Get some fire in your belly and be idle!
    Do something useless for a change, and fritter your time away here. Otherwise this thread will die for lack of proactive disinterest.

    Say what? I'm a third party bumper?

    I'm assuming CP is the first party, but if I'm only a third party bumper then who qualifies as a second party bumper? And let's not forget the bumperettes... just because they are women there is no reason to exclude them.
