  • Damn Sean Payton (Saints' coach)! I love it. It's the stark contrast between being the reckless risk-taker who blew the Superbowl or the bold genius taking calculated risks to propel the team to victory. Just awesome. Did anyone think they were kicking an onside kick to start the second half?

  • “The number of legal chess positions is 1,040, the number of different possible games, 10,120. A player looking eight moves ahead is already presented with as many possible games as there are stars in the galaxy. There are more possible chess games than the number of atoms in the universe. These comparisons impress upon the casual observer why brute-force computer calculation can’t solve this ancient board game. They are also handy, and I am not above doing this myself, for impressing people with how complicated chess is.” ~Former chess champion Garry Kasparov in The New York Review of Books (The Week)

  • Tokyo down 1% overnight. London up, then down, now trading flat. Futures around flatline in the US as traders continue assessing Friday's move and what it means. Is the correction over or was this just an oversold bounce?

  • Plenty of Toyota cartoons out there. It's just too easy, isn't it?
