Bobby Fischer was a raging douche, so I guess Boris Yeltsin

Re: The question of the day thread

There's a story out there about a mom who is suing to operators/maintenance crews etc. of Central Park for $200 million. A tree fell on her and her kids.
QotD: Does she deserve the dough, or is she just a money hungry toolbag that can't out run a tree?ⁿ

Re: The question of the day thread

spassky obv, Fischer was out of his mind and paranoid. I wouldn't want to have an IQ that high and be paranoid.

Also, spassky's family was almost like royalty in OG Russia so he prob did whatever he wanted

Re: The question of the day thread

It's Fischer and it's not close either.

Best case as Spassky is, well, living as Boris Spassky did. Chess ambassador with the Botviniks and Petrosians, maybe a media darling like Tal; with a certainty of being lunch meat for Karpov. You get the keys to the Soviet Union and a hot Russian wife.

Best case as Fischer is transforming into captain America. You bite a personal bullet and apologize to most adversaries; Nixon affirms himself when he hears you're ready to pull up your bootstraps and play for the home team. You quit the cult; it's 1972 and you're at peak virility. You walk into a New York City investment bank wearing a baker's costume, knowing if they pass you up for it you'll go across the street and get hired in more normal fashion, never letting the opposing firm live down their awful decision to pass. You become as rich as you'd like, own as much of the world as you'd like, while effortlessly retaining the chess world championship until 1985.

Re: The question of the day thread

Except that wouldn’t happen. Only five people attended Fischer’s burial in Reykjavik. His face redacted from American history — not dissimilar to an English war hero by the name Alan Turing, who similarly, was cast off and murdered by his government after being deemed not of use.

Quote:
With the death of Bobby Fischer chess has lost one of its greatest figures. Fischer’s status as world champion and celebrity came from a charismatic and combative personality matched with unstoppable play. I recall thrilling over the games of his 1972 Reykjavik world championship match against Boris Spassky when I was nine years old. The American had his share of supporters in the USSR even then, and not only for his chess prowess. His outspokenness and individuality also earned him the quiet respect of many of my compatriots.

Fischer’s beautiful chess and his immortal games will stand forever as a central pillar in the history of our game. And the story of the Brooklynite iconoclast’s rise from prodigy to world champion has few peers for drama. Apart from a brief and peculiar reappearance in 1992, Bobby Fischer’s chess career ended in 1972. After conquering the chess Olympus he was unable to find a new target for his power and passion.

Fischer’s relentless energy exhausted everything it touched – the resources of the game itself, his opponents on and off the board, and, sadly, his own mind and body. While we can never entirely separate the deeds from the man, I would prefer to speak of his global achievements instead of his inner tragedies. It is with justice that he spent his final days in Iceland, the site of his greatest triumph. There he has always been loved and seen in the best possible way: as a chessplayer.

Re: The question of the day thread

Dick Schapp may have proved it correct.

(In today’s times, Fischer’s comments would’ve landed him a spot on Celebrity Rehab. Youtube commentary is more vile than his expression was.)

QOTD

What is the last topic you found yourself doing an internet deep dive into without knowing how you got there?

I was watching my 3rd youtube rabies video tonight with a half dozen other related open tabs on the subject with absolutely no memory of whatever path got me to that point.

Brag: I know way more about rabies now.
Beat: I might have rabies?

Re: The question of the day thread

I got stoned in a garage without my phone and could not piece together the hour of the day. Quantum uncertainty might suggest that I could have lived one thousand years in the garage so long as I never knew the time.

Oh yeah, the username Tuma is code for Time. It was an out of body experience. Really a shame I forgot snacks

Re: The question of the day thread

I don't think so. A question could be deceptive, as in "did you stop beating your dog?". But a lie is affirming something false as a truth.
