At first glance it might not be very obvious why Follying a Bishop, rather than a Knight, may be useful.

After all, two Bishops of the same coloured square can be a dicey combination. Then again, on the other hand it might be just what you need.

In any case, dual-coloured Bishops are not a foregone result, since there are more Follying options for a Bishop than there are for a Knight, such as when Castling, and herewith the ease to replenish the balance.

This article is not intended as an in-depth Opening study, yet I would like to demonstrate how firstly, Follying is extremely useful as a method to free a Queen or even a King from a Knight shackled against it.

Secondly, this article demonstrates how Follying a Bishop can prove very cunning, particularly whence your opponent is caught offguard, and highlights how dual-coloured Bishops can deliver a very strong blow.

Bishop Follying: French Defense

The purpose of Bishop Follying is sometimes misunderstood since it harbours concepts such as dual-coloured Bishops and hidden ulterior strategies. To the untrained eye, it may be difficult to perceive how Follying a Bishop may be more useful than Follying a Knight.

Yet as I am about to show you, this post studies a well known Opening which is actually tailored by design to embrace the Bishop Folly with open arms.

I trust this article will explain and clarify to you, why the practise of Follying is indeed the next evolution of Chess.

The French Defense is often considered to be a successful opening, but due to its infamous light square Bishop being unable to enter the game for some time, it receives a similar amount of criticism.

Yet in this post I am going to comprehensively demonstrate how Bishop Follying revolutionizes the French Defense unto a newfound superiority.

Martian Snowball

Martian Snowball by Simon JeppsHere is another good recipe of mine. This is the really good stuff, a splendid medication for your stressful pains.

I will say in advance, Martian Snowball is very addictive and will go down very comfortably with a large bag of dry roasted peanuts.

  • One good shot of Advocaat.
  • Fill glass with Ginger Beer.

The correct size glass is a standard tall tumbler, but any will do, to your preference.

Stir them up with a teaspoon for a few seconds to get them well acquainted.

It will froth like heaven, so be sure to keep a towel handy in case it over fills.

Live long and prosper!

The Flag Of Cornissia

YllwChlk is proud to present the design for a Cornissian flag, following the recent decision to pursue the promotion of South West independence.

Flag design is always a fascinating subject and I myself have often spent many hours browsing through all the nation flags of the world, amazed and inspired by their seemingly abstract self portraits of cultural identity.

Which is what a flag is, I suppose.

Here then the Flag Of Cornissia attempts to convey the same announcement of cultural identity.

The Country Of Cornissia

The Country Of Cornissia
Cornissia
The proposed name by YllwChlk for the independent country, declared formerly the South West counties of England.
South West independence is not a pipe dream. Far from it.

In fact, whilst not mentioned or discussed in the media to any great detail, it is nevertheless talked about in the towns, the parks and indeed on the streets of this great region.

The region here highlighted on the map, is the entire South West and if you do some research, you will discover that this region like many other devolved regions, such as Scotland and Wales, has its own language, its own culture, is historically Celtic by nature, identifies entirely as a separate people from London and is completely unique in its own sovereignty.

YllwChlk has called it Cornissia because historically, the region of Cornwall was itself a truly sovereign state with its own autonomous infrastructure and so politically, it would be sensible to allow Cornwall administrative domain of the entire South West.

Pronounced “cor-nis-sha”, thus differentiating the Cornish as specifically the people of Cornwall and Cornissians as the greater population of Cornissia, its name sings a beauty like the sun upon the seas, a silhouette of a sail and the crushing waves upon a scone coloured coast, as the enchanting lights of Truro begin to dance upon the dusk brushed sky.

In fact once upon a time, Cornwall was its own country and has itself suffered the many pains of foreign rule. Just like Scotland. Just like Wales. Just like Ireland. Just like…. India… China… erm… well, you get the idea.

Today, the undying Celtic heart of the South West and indeed also of the rest of Britain, is beginning to raise its voice.
