    a delicate disposition blended with a killer alterego on those checkered 64 squares; gracious and caring, lethal and predatory, one is wise to approach with caution and be braced for a hug

    i don't like posting anything original and substantial, yet it is all that i do; a rationale for such reasonable behavior eludes me

    i dread the notion that i might yet learn enough about myself to comprehend such idiosyncratic behavior

    Originality is an illusion... because even if it's new to you someone else has surely seen or done it before. I don't know this for a fact, but I suspect variations on a theme is probably the closest anyone can actually come to being 'original'.

    now, see, i was thinking just that very thought, but i didn't write it, because i knew that it was derivative.

    there you have it.

    I don't bother limiting myself to making 'non-derivative' statements, because I do not believe statements embodying original ideas actually exist. Originality is an illusion just as the idea of 'randomness' is an illusion. Nothing is random and everything is derivatve, whether we know it (or like it) or not.

    Seriously, there is a beer called Moose Drool? Is it Canadian?
