Nah. Don't like chess anymore.

Year 0 is from the astronomical year numbering system. There is no 0 CE. 1 CE is preceded by 1 BCE, just as AD 1 is preceded by 1 BC.

They are not the same thing.

I'm very happy with my education and the career it afforded me to have - and I had one of the worst possible majors supposedly you can have!: theatre!
That's probably why you didn't flunk out.

Or, we could do what the French did after their revolution, and start over at An One.

Sorry, I meant to comment on this before. We've already tried the logical outcome of this policy initiative in the 1920s CE, as I recall. See War against the weak : eugenics and America's campaign to create a master race / Edwin Black, c2003, Four Walls Eight Windows, 363.97 Blac. (There was also a documentary movie produced, by the same name, in 2009 or so.)

Subjects
• Eugenics -- United States -- History.
• Sterilization (Birth control) -- United States.
• Human reproduction -- Government policy -- United States.
• United States -- Social policy.
• United States -- Moral conditions.

Length
• xxviii, 550 pages, [14] pages of plates :

It's a terrifying story, & not for the faint of heart. The eugenics movement in the US jumped the gun - & began carrying out forced sterilizations on men & women who were determined to be defective, mentally incompetent, lazy, uppity, criminally inclined, who showed signs of congenital indolence, indifference to law, Black, Native American, Mexican, gypsy, Irish, Chinese, Japanese (& really, anybody who simply didn't seem to belong, as determined by the so-called elite), & etc. All this without bothering to wait for enabling legislation @ the state or federal level. The Nazis picked up on these nascent US efforts, & systematized their efforts with the blessings of their state.

The resulting fiasco ended all discussion of such matters by God-fearing people until quite recently. But it's worth reading about the first fumbling efforts in the US, & how they nearly succeeded in breeding a race of the human equivalent of poodles.

Something to ponder, &/or have nightmares about.
Thanks from Sabcat

Thanks, so there is no 0 CE and no 0 BCE. Interesting number system that excludes 0 at the center.

The last time I played a game of chess was when I got locked up in a Georgia jailhouse circa 1990. I was the only white and their chessmaster kept begging me to play him chess to beat another white guy. We had no money but cigarettes were legal and they were betting games. I ended up with all of the cigarettes in the jail house. When they had no cigarettes to bet I said this tournament is concluded and I then gave all of their cigarettes back to keep the peace. Their Chessmaster then asked me for advice and I told and showed him how to look in advance.

That is because zero (0) did not exist when the Julian calendar was created. The people had a word for "nothing", but no numeral to represent a void in numbers. When Pope Gregory XIII introduced the Gregorian Calendar, it did not address the issue the issue of zero, only the drift of the calendar that caused the solstice to drift away from it's intended time for SEASONAL celebration. The fix was the leap years to address the constant time drift and no fix for zero. A side effect of the Gregorian fix also created a new problem in that now ancient and neolithic history has two different time alignments in BC and BCE. In scholarly writings, it became important to indicate if the accredited timeline is based on Julian or Gregorian.

Our modern Astronomical and Holocene calendars fixed nothing with the zero and only added more confusion. Astronomical gave a year zero but it only shoved BC/BCE backwards one year. Holocene adds 10,000 to all years so again it shoves BC/BCE backwards simply because of math. Needless to say, historians think astronomers and geologists are idiots.

SO I take it the "Chessmaster" was just the guys nickname and he wasn't a REAL Chess Master Don't know how into chess you are, but for years the highest rated player in the USA was a guy named Claude Bloodgood, who was in prison for murder. The USCF investigated and found lots of "rating inflation" going on and bumped him from the rankings.

What's your rating? I'm a B/C player (~1550). I'm "pretty good" to "nearly unbeatable" by normal standards, but by chess competition standards I'm an average adult player. I'm prone to bonehead blunders from time to time.

I used to play chess quite a bit, but I've never been rated. I'd like to think of myself as "pretty good," but I'm likely closer to just average. I do own a three level chessboard, and that takes quite a bit more thinking ahead than when you play on just one level.
