    please stop. Just please, this puzzle has been posted some 10 times. I have a feeling it may even be on another thread on this very page. The answer is Rc6. Most people will be able to tell you the answer as soon as you write the thread title. Let it die.

    ok, confused at first...
    i was thinking, any king move...
    duh!
    then I realized that no mates mean we can't stalemate either...
    and I agree...
    this is the dumbest puzzle on earth...

    I took the liberty to combine your dumbest puzzle on earth with the original thread title. I think that makes it the new dumbest puzzle on earth

    White to play and NOT mate.

    Heh. 1.g3! leads to stalemate. A fitting companion to the original version.
