    Is oriental really an outdated term?

    Don't Count Out Gillibrand

    But yeah, I knew Gillibrand would declare. Don't think she will win though. Looking at her voting record it is clear that she has no idealogue of her own besides, "im against everything Trump is for"

    Don't Count Out Gillibrand

    Called it. Now we just need Booker and I will still have taste buds. This is gonna be an exciting race for the Dems. They certainly got some good candidates (besides Warren), I haven't been following too closely, but aren't the current candidates Warren, Gillibrand, Castro, and Gabbard now right?

    I love beards. I can grow one, but it just takes me a long time to grow an un-degenerate looking one since it grows so unevenly. (My chin, upper lip, and sideburns grow faster than my cheeks)

    Interesting Data for 2019/2020

    Unlikely Hypothetical 36-candidate Democratic Primary

    Now that I think about it it's pretty funny that Beto pretended to be Hispanic for the longest time and Ted Cruz pretends to be white lmao

    Chess question

    I've analyzed the Bird's opening, but never played it or against it. The analysis board actually calls it a poor opening for white though (the only five supposedly good moves are e4, d4, c4, nf3, and g3), but there is this one GM I played against who only plays the Grob opening (at least online), and has great success with it, and it's apparently the worst first move white can make (g4) As a fellow aggressive and attacking player myself, I'm curious how maybe a best of three match between us would go if you were interested in playing some games later.

    Chess question

    What were your favorite openings when you played? I like to play a variety of openings but I play e4 as white 80% of the time (d4 about 15% of the time, usually when it's a game that I NEED to win, and very few I'll throw in an English opening around 5% of the time), my results are pretty similar with all three openings, and I'm familiar with the lines and variations for all of them about equally, but for some reason I just like playing e4 most of the time until I get bored of it. As black I'll play both e5 and some Sicilian variations (Najdorf, Dragon, and my favorite, the Accelerated Dragon) against e4, and basically the King's Indian Defense against d4, c4, and everything else, but sometimes I'll throw in some crazy openings every now and then like the Scandinavian, and very rarely in speed chess games the Budapest Gambit, since it's full of traps that require thorough calculation to see.

    Chess question

    Thanks boi. After having that Chess tournament here I started playing regularly and got to 1600 after playing since August. Just started reading chess books a week ago. I need to play you sometime soon too.

    Chess question

    Awesome, on Lichess I am rated ~1600, and you seem to be around ~950. I'd be glad to teach you some things maybe, added you.
  23. ThePotatoWalrus

    Chess question

    I use to go there, but I use Lichess.org now. Way better, runs off of donations and has no ads, and all features are free (plus the analysis is better, and it gives you insights on your games). Drop your account name below, I'd love to get some games in. Here's a few screenshots of insights it will tell you about your games. The first one is how I do against certain openings (I just made a new account, so they vary a lot because I don't have many games played, as you can see I hate the French), and the second one shows game results based on color. The third one shows how my games end when I trade off the queens. I do have a chess.com account that I haven't used in a long time that I can play you on.

    Caleb's Personal 2020 Prediction

    Democrats tend to be more soft-spoken than their conservative counterparts (obviously there are exceptions on both sides), but I think Beto could give Trump a run for his money if he becomes the nominee, which could happen, though I think Booker will probably get it. If Biden does run though I will change parties to Democrat to vote for him.

    Caleb's Personal 2020 Prediction

    I used to think Beto would never run, but he might be the only dude the Dems have who could beat Trump. He's young (for politics), has energy that compares to Trump, he's not afraid to speak his mind on the issues (he even dropped the F bomb in a speech). I definitely agree with your other candidates too, with the exception of Biden. He won't run but he'll flirt with it.
