When it comes to chess, I'm not particularly big on sharing. For instance, the more children who learn about the delights of our game, the more who will beat me in a few seasons time. Ideally, I'd like chess to become increasingly unpopular to the point of vanishing: for therein lies my only real chance of gaining the World Championship.
I don't feel that way about Dinosaur Comics, however. I figure the more popular the comics get, the less chance their author will get dejected and stop writing them. So today I'm particularly happy to share with you a recent installment, since it fittingly enough features chess:
Here's an idea. Perhaps dinosaurs will now become increasingly popular at the expense of chess, and thus in time I will rise to become World Number One! (Number one chess player, that is, not dinosaur.) Yet - regrettably - it is of course possible to like both chess and dinosaurs. Indeed, I used to play online as 'Jurchessic Park' myself. And probably therein lies the secret of my failure.
