    As much as I am pleased for Andy Murray and other successful sport stars, I am completely against these people being Knighted. These people don't have 9-5 jobs that are paid an average wage, they instead, train for a sport they enjoy participating in and tend to get paid very well whatever their success in that sport. So why knight somebody for doing what they train to do and get paid to do?????

    Maybe I'm missing the point here, but didn't the original Knights train for combat and got paid for doing so and were knighted for doing what they trained for? 😛

    training to go into combat or training to play an upper class game such as lawn tennis is a bit different methinks. Stop winding me up!

    Chawarae Teg! If it's winding up time then - a 52yr old standing at 5'6" - is that really a 'long' 'woody'?

    Johnny gets a woody at a 50 by 50 pixel, if it's even vaguely female.

    So please lay down good criteria for knighthoods. (Being Born to a Knight is not one of thm in my opinion)

    this was exactly the question running around inside the cavity where my brain is supposed to reside...
    now,
    i am a citizen in good standing...
    i possess a dual citizenship, natural born in the usa, and a native from the sovereign nation of texas...
    i have no outstanding warrants...

    if i were to desire such a thing as knighthood, and did not have the means to purchase one, how would i go about obtaining such a wonderful item???

    i am not above stealing one, if it is in good shape and not in present use...

    i could write a silly lil four line rhyme, quite easily, if that would meet the requirements...

    i can bring barbequed turkey legs to the party, along with some of my homemade rookiebread...

    how about it???
    am i in???

    I laughed even though technically, it's 2500 pixels. 😛

    According to Google Images, that photo could be of Aliya Jasmine Sovani who is not known for her chess.

    I'm getting the impression that you are attracted to young slender women with long dark hair (that they keep long) who style themselves to attract, based on your post here and your reaction ("She's hot!" ) concerning a pic of a girl in a superhero costume, that I posted.

    Fortunately, my daughter is a blonde. 🙂

    My sources say it's Emmanuelle Chriqui.

    Edit: here's another one for Johnny (and pretty much any straight guy out there, really).
