The Bible is to Western literature what Go is to chess.

Similarly, Go is to Western chess what philosophy is to double-entry accounting.

But what benefit is playing Go if you're under the assumption that you're still playing chess?

Your analogies leave something to be desired.

Not the strongest grasp of Western idioms either, perhaps.

It's a straightforward point. Bicker to avoid it.

Its a **** point. Go was not hugely instrumental and influential in the development of chess, like the Bible was for western literature.

It is an horrible analogy.

Delivered badly, and is devoid of any merit.

At no point in your rambling, incoherent post were you close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having read it. I award you no points, and may Odin have mercy on your soul.

Oh. So you missed the point.

Hopefully someone catches on. It's a sad thing to have to spell out.

Shampoo is better. It goes on first and cleans the hair.
