Will laughing ever play himself enough to surpass Hielco?

 

No, the mods and staff would not allow it :)

Good evening, Proprietor Theo.

 

May I have a Highland Park 18 year without ice, and a side of mineral water, please?

 

1. When (and if) will Hielco break 1500 ELO?

He's already broken it a dozen times, but because he moves so fast, no one can record the multitudinous advancements.

 

2. Will Desert Oasis ever return?

Will there be beach front property for sale in Arizona anytime soon? Who knows?

 

3. Will Laughing ever reach the top 50 again?

It appears that "Laughing" has become a more arrogant euphemism.

 

4. Is Laughing the Same Person as WayBetterThanU?

I cannot say, but Wogomite is beyond dispute, so...YES!

 

5. What is your ELO goal to reach by the end of the year?

I'd be happy to crawl out of a –257, but I would also like a bank account filled with 10,000,000 €uros!

 

You forgot to introduce a 6th question...so here is one ad lib...

 

6. Who would you like most to see beat Hielco in a tournament match?

For me that's easy...I want to see Napoleon 1er beat Hielco...otherwise, he's goin' to rip my neck open and something, something down my neck.

 

Thanks for the excellent Scotch, Theo!!!  <hiccup>

Is there a rule that the owner must post 6 questions? lol jk

 

As for #5, it's been changed, will he ever play himself enough to surpass Hielco?

Yes, Fairway...an individual with as esteemed a distinction as Hielco, certainly deserves to have their name spelled correctly. Are you going to private school or public school for your education?  ;)

Greetings, Hielco! This proves my thesis...he goes to public school in the United States, not private.  :D  

 

JK!!!, Fairway! (Fairway...between you and me, I think that Hielco would like to see you spell his name out correctly so as to make the road smooth once more...how do you feel about that idea?).  :)

Now, you see, Fairway, you have demonstrated the high quality of sportsman that you are and the fine character that you possess!  :)   No doubt that Hielco feels pleased.

 

Bravo and well done!  :D

 

Sincerely,

Piece of the board I look like ofcoure is the Colonel. Great piece. As there are two of them. And they came into Theo's bar. Said the one to the other:

"What's the difference between God and Donald Trump?"

"The POTUS. Right. Great man. Trust me. He's great. He uses Twitter, you know. Got all the best words. All the best lines. It's true. He says so himself. He really does. He's the best POTUS ever. No, I should say THE best POTUS -PERIOD. He really is. Believe me, he is. I know. Important people, no, VERY important people told me this. His daugther. His son in law. All the generals in his cabinet. It's true. Even the marshals. They really did. Everybody says so. Even got a link to proove that: https://www.youtube....h?v=dImfHWFuoug. He's got all the best deeds, all the best accomplishments EVER. From all the Presidents. Going back to Washington. And Jefferson. And them all, you know. It really does. It's huge. It's just absolutely fantastic. Kelly Anne told me. She really did. It's even going beyond that. From before Lincoln you know. From before the time there even were colonels. You only need to read his tweets. He's fabulous. Even bots like him now. Always have too. Trust me, they have. They've got whole sites for him erecting in Russia. AND Eastern Europe. True story. Ummmm. What was the question again, the difference between God and Donald Trump?"

"God doesn't think he's Donald Trump."

1. Where the phrase 'on the house' originates from?

1889 in the far west ... a cow boy wanted a fresh beer and his colleague told him "Let's get it On the House" and they went into the saloon

2. When will Fairway next post in this thread?

no later than a few minutes after he will have read this question

3. Which Stratego piece do you genuinely most look like?

look at my picture on the left of this post .... looks like a general, right?

4. Explain why the Sargent is the best piece on the board

because he is just in the middle of the 33 moving pieces. He is stronger than all scouts, spy and miners but weaker than all lieuts and above. So he has capacity to "eat" half of the pieces or provide information on the other half for little cost.So when attacking movong pieces in 50% of the cases he would capture a piece and in the other 50% he will provide useful information which will help for future moves.

5. Provide a one sentence anagram using arch each piece on a Stratego board.

Noon! ...  barman Jon rings bell, in parallel cute racing mums play stratego at Theo's cafe.

Mel.

1. No idea

 

2. Precisely at 12:22 GMT December 17 2017 

 

3.My favorite piece is the colonel: very versatile!

 

4. He is very good for scouting and calling bluffs

 

5. This is probably very bad, but the best I could do:

 

My giant cab, manned carelessly, landed skidding minus soap, scaring Bob fairly.
