Working late

Most of the bugs seem to be gone.  The floor of the porch is covered with bug corpses.  Yeesh, what a mess!


It's after midnight here.  I stepped outside just now and the farmer who owns the next field over is still out there with his tractor, harvesting his corn.  I suspect a lot of the farmers around here don't actually own their own equipment (at least, not the BIG stuff like combines) but either rent or have some kind of co-op sharing system.  They get to use the equipment for only so many days, so if they're running behind they must have to work late into the night.

Sounds fishy to me

Did you know that the word ghoti is pronounced fish?

World's largest chess game

Taikyoku Shogi is a variant of Shogi, or Japanese Chess.  The board is 36 rows wide and 36 ranks long and each player starts with 402 pieces of 209 different types, each of which can have 1-3 different moves.

And here I was having a hard enough time keeping straight the 14 different pieces used in regular Shogi
