    I wonder, where did the word blunder come from in chess? It is the sort of word that was used in England in the 19th century (1800s really - some dummy decided to name all the centuries a year out of date).

    William Ferrence vs John Blunder

    1.e4...(Blunder then knocked king over by accident...game over)

    The first "blunder"

    I'm serious....it's a fact.
