I will have a look when time permits it. I'm not familiar with the Chinese game of Go. If there's a bit of a learning curve involved, it would be a bit arbitrary to use that as an assessment tool. The rules of chess, for example, are fairly easy to learn. Strategies, specific moves, anticipating and countering the opponent's play take a while to master. That being said, I'm not a great chess player but I excel at Scrabble. Anyway, I'll try to further my knowledge of Go...

Wouldn't there be ideological clashes between members of different faiths? Muslims and Christians are inclusive groups. Wouldn't this sort of elitism turn them off? Also, how would you gauge prospective members intelligence? What about mensa? Are you a member and if so, wouldn't it be easier culling from that particular group? I like the idea but am wary of the ethical implications of eugenicism. But, like you, I enjoy being surrounded by intelligent people with critical thinking skills and find little fulfilment talking about the weather and sports with average joes. I'm a bastard Christian with GAD and a 136 IQ. Can I join?

I quit cigarettes 5 years ago thanks to vaping. I'm still a nicotine addict but I breathe much better(no coughing up brown mucus in the morning), the apartment and my clothes smell much better and by mixing my own liquids with ingredients bought from an online store, I'm saving money as well. They want to ban flavours in Canada because of teens taking up vaping which makes no sense. They're better off vaping than smoking and it's not like kids couldn't get cigarettes if no other alternatives were available. Maybe our political wackos are being bought off by big tobacco...who knows?

I use Pop! OS too but Gnome has turned to shit and using it aggravates me. I decided to install KDE Plasma a while back and it's a better experience overall. XFCE is worth a look too if you want a more simplistic and less bloated DE. Although Thunar, the file manager, had its issues.

I like quoting Mark Twain as well. Please don't tell me he's done some shady things too... Trust me. If I had been aware of Sartre's misdeeds I wouldn't have quoted him. Provided the child abuse allegations are true. As for his political leanings, I don't really care. But siding with a tyrant and being oblivious to the mass starvation of millions of Ukrainians is unforgivable. Those are things I was unaware of. TIL

You're just giving more credence to the quote. Lighten up. Someone else could've come up with it but alas, it had to be a commie-loving pedo. He's a sick person if the allegations are true but it's in the past. Do you boycott Volkswagen because of its origins? You're also conflating communism with totalitarianism/authoritarianism. An economic system and a political system that are obviously not mutually exclusive but still two different systems with different goals and outcomes. Genocides are not exclusive to communist states either.

His views on colonialism and neocolonialism, existentialism. He has an interesting perspective on those topics. I should've worded it differently; they're views and are not necessarily factually correct. And yes...the Holomodor. Political views warp perceptions. I'm not defending the guy. I just like the quote that's all.
