What if a person were to accidently nibble the bark off a willow tree?

Have you been doing that again?

Not since the holidays.

I discovered two things yesterday.

1. Visiting a forest can induce a significant increase in both the number and activity of natural killer cells, one of the ways our body fights off cancer. And the effects can last up to thirty days.

2. Using paracetamol or other medication to reduce the fever of flu can increase your chances of dying from it by up to 5%.

Yes, it was an excellent series, Diane, and had me searching the web for several days, seriously looking for a nice chess table and set for my bachelor pad. I played a little in my youth, to a very low level, but was more thinking of the aesthetics of the set up, rather than any great desire to seriously take up the game again. Besides, I’m not sure I could afford the recreational drugs.

The Bots have personalities and play chess differently, my 4th Bot  Devon (1600) was clearing the board each time with ruthless moves, we had hardly any pieces left to play with, so I had to learn to play against that style - finally won one game against it. They rated me at (800)

What does the year's membership give you? I'm sure you can play against real people without the membership.

game analysis and playing bots other than Jimmy (600)
