gooooooood afternoon founderless! Been doing a lot of tinkering with the forum and Discord and had elections in TWO different regions including this one. Haven't been as attentive to the RMB lately and I feel kinda bad. How is everyone here??
yoooooooo what??? That's so exciting! Really glad to hear you're doing well NCE.
"Following new legislation in The Sedge, the nation is proudly the least fertile in Founderless."
I, er... okay. Well that's something to be proud of.
Same. Need to try and get religiousness up and weaponization up on this nation. Seems like it could be remotely fitting for this nation xD
Hello! Good to see you! It's been a minute.
Good afternoon all. How is everyone's Sunday going?
Sleepy. One more weekend of judging mock trial after this one. I'm sort of done with it for a while.
But very excited for this week! Lot of cool stuff planned for Founderless, TSP, and I'm giving a talk at the NS Cards symposium!
that might be truer than any of us realize :P
Anyone else watching the Pogchamps Chess tournament on twitch?
no, but I did enjoy watching it previously. The rise of chess has been really cool and it even got me back into the game briefly, before I remembered how trash I was compared to everyone who actually studies the game lol
Yeah I'm much the same, it's completely renewed my interest in the game.
They've got Rainn Wilson and Daniel Negreanu playing this year and it's been really interesting seeing them play. Daniel was more of a newbie before the tournament, he was just narrowly knocked out by arguably the tournament favourite last night. Then Rainn is apparently affiliated with chess.com and is a bit of a dab hand at Chess. He's one of the better players and I'm all aboard the Dwight victory train.
Not surprised that Daniel Negreanu was a quick study. The dude is absolutely insane at poker, and his ability to read people and figure out what their strategy is... not really sure they teach that in chess. I fell down a youtube rabbit hole of watching him predict people's hands perfectly. And Rainn Wilson??? Really? I had no idea at all. That is really cool.
