    Chess cheat?

    I love Chess. The recent dumpy spit was most un chess like Grand masters can be touchy of course.

    The online cheating seems rather a lot different to the on camera games Mr Hans Niemann is accused of cheating in. The rumors of a vibrating egg some where the sun doesn't shine seem a bit dark for me

    The letter is a tad funny. He was beaten a few weeks ago so not sure he can claim to be the "World Chess Champion" ?

    So much trivia I do love seeing Magnus Carlsen play so not meaning to be mean

    Lake dart mouth overflowing for the first time in 26 years-

    My disco is almost full after a $2.06 a ltr drink- Ouch I thought yet today its Kaos as everyone rushes to fill up.

    "Apco Mildura fuel attendant Ellie Laird said it was disappointing to have to turn motorists away.
    "We do cop it a little bit [from customers] but they're pretty understanding that we just have to wait for a truck from Melbourne or Adelaide," she said.
    "It's been chaotic and after the truck comes tonight it will be even more chaotic."

    Diesel pumps run dry at Mildura while north Qld drivers face long queues ahead of fuel excise increase - ABC News

    It was when all Telstra users (aka everyone) were offered a choice. Opt in or opt out.

    Maybe some MBA's had set up a company that had the abbreviated answer, and it was the only alternative at the time.

    Droning on?

    Queensland's Browns Plains without electricity after drone food delivery crashes into powerlines

    Thousands of people were left without power after a food delivery drone crashed into powerlines yesterday in what has been described as a "first" by Energex.



    I wonder how much this costs and who gets to pay???
