    There is strong evidence that Kirsan taught space aliens to play chess while he was going to other Galaxies. FIDE 's Kirsan, of course..

    Quote from article:
    “My theory is that chess comes from space. Because it’s the same rules — 64 squares, black and white, and the same rules in Japan, in China, in Qatar, in Mongolia, in Africa — the rules are the same. Why? I think maybe it is from space.”


    The man is a total nutcase...... OR IS HE!?!?!??

    Edit: So actually Kirsan did not teach the aliens, rather, they taught us all!
