Re: Mornington Crescent

According to the calculations based on the writings of Thaddeus Q. Wormbustle, the escape velocity has been exceeded two moves ago. Plenty of residual velocity here. One will have to proceed with caution to avoid interfering with a similar game taking place in Szechuan. Here we go - hold your breath......

Paddington

Got it!

Re: Mornington Crescent

Without wishing to be a spoilport or anything, I would suggest that a move to MC following a Great Portland Street induced DH loop and with a Paddington exit falls foul of the 1956 'New' Rules (as amended by the 1962 Malaga Convention and the 1984 Council of Avon).

Coulstone's Third Ruling would seem particularly relevant.

Re: Mornington Crescent

I fully agree reuters77, once again I call for a stewards' enquiry.It would seem that certain players are becoming alittle,shall we say,blase,towards the more subtle conventions of this great sport.This needs to be addressed.

Re: Mornington Crescent

Someone called?

I would have to agree with both reuters77 and ex_matelot. Lord Grumpy, your move is hereby declared invalid and false for the reasons of:

Coulston's Third Ruiling
Paddington following DH Loop (Amendment, 1984; Adjunct, 2001)
Malaga Convention, 1962 (Relevant Parts)
Council of Avon, 1984 (Relevant Parts)
Edinburgh Conference on the International Gameplay Rules, 2003

As such, I call for a restart, noting the FIA Restarting of a cancellation of play, 1989, 1994 & 2005 statues and call:

Dollis Hill, 17th Attempt of Passing

Re: Mornington Crescent

Smart play, happyhamster. You neatly sidestepped the obvious trap that Volinovsky notoriously walked straight into at the 1971 Eastern Europe finals.

Re: Mornington Crescent

Jordan, it would appear that you are not aware of the Ouagadougou ruling of 2005 which declared difinitively, inter-alia, de fact, and des resthat Grumpy's move was indeed legal. However, as the game has restarted, I won't make an issue of it, but I do wish people would keep up to date with the rules.

Re: Mornington Crescent

Gouby - I note your concerns, but point towards the Rule book last issued to me as the keeper of the rules of this game, by the International Committee. I also wish you to note that the Ouagadougou Ruiling has been struck down by the International Committee.

Old Street?

Re: Mornington Crescent

Well, Jordan, you're busted, me old mate. The first, unabridged, and now rather dusty copy of the rules of MC, dated 1st April 1878 state that no person under the age of 35 may be held in office with responsibility for possession of the rule book (even if they do share a name with a Middle Eastern country). This book is still held in the Library at Windsor Castle, having survived teh great fire after Prince Phillip, hair smouldering, ran into the library wearing nought but his silk undergarments (gents or ladies' I couldn't hazard a guess) and carried it out in his purse.

The abridged version doesn't mention this rule but does refer the reader always to return to the unabridged version. Page 3, para.2 line 3 lays out this rule. So the question, Mr. D, is who are you? Really, we mean? You're not the strange Scandinavian lady with the purple pants who streaked at the 1998 championship, are you?

Nonetheless, I will make a play Swiss Cottage, until this matter is clarified.

Re: Mornington Crescent

panda - you fail to mention to crucial item. MC's original rule book, was amended as agreed by the World Council & World Congress in 1941, stating that the office with responsibility can be held by anyone on condition that the decision of who holds that position has been ratified by the same, and those who play in the game where that person is the keeper!

Your challenge is thus disregarded. And I'm not Scandinavian ...although I wouldn't mind one!

Re: Mornington Crescent

You are her, aren't you! Are you in purple again? If you were for real you'd know it can't be ammended! It is expressly forbidden and as we all know, anything is permitted except that which is expressly forbidden! And you should also know that the World Council has to be consulted before any challenge can be rejected.

Tsk tsk. An interlocutor is amongst us, friends. And she wears purple pants!

Re: Mornington Crescent

I've often wondered about Stoke Poges. Is it two nouns, or is it a noun followed by a verb?

Jordan, I note that you denied the Scandyhooligan reference, but you said naught about purple pants. However, as this month, underwear is worn inside the trousers, the colour of your pants is of no one's concern but your own (and possibly your mother's if she is worried that you will get knocked over by a car).

Re: Mornington Crescent

Lordy, Lordy Mr Matlow!

What have you done?

Are you not aware that playing Shepherd's Bush after a Stovold's can weaken the very fabric of the Universe unless precautions are taken?

One trusts one has been wearing one's stout sailcloth knickers and tinfoil helmet or terrible things will befall one....

Just to be safe...

Chalfont St Giles






...Or is that stout sailcloth helmet and tinfoil knickers? No matter, we're all doomed in any case....

One has been known to tap one's foot when overcome with joie de vivre, but sing?

No....
