    Gosh, such a trivial question - nothing like AC's crazy questions . I came to Australia when I was 15 so my profession over there was: HS student.
    As for my current profession: https://www.facebook.com/groups/154816377943690/ - running Baron Consulting + University lecturer. http://lectureroftheyear.com.au/nominate/hzW

    P.S. That's right - I am not a professional chess bum - I just pretend to be one when I am at MCC on saturdays to play Allegro

    Why do you keep coming here if you consider nobody at chesschat worthy of your friendship ?

    We are not living in the world where we are to communicate with friends only. Some chatters are already my friends in real life already by the way - but I do not see chesschat as a ''lets make friends'' website

    Yes, but all friends were once complete strangers.
    Why dont you give the good people of chesschat a chance to win you over ?

    I know I have shown loyalty and great sacrifice promoting Allegro@MCC.
    Now Isn't that something a friend would do ?

    Michael, together we can both be trailblazers to make this a truly "lets make friends" website.

    I challenge you to join me in this quest !!!!

    On a more strategic note, if you were to procure more friends at chesschat you would probably get more votes for "lecturer of the year".

    Now wouldn't that be beneficial ?

    Michael from MCC interviews

    I am very grateful to all of those who follow my life and chess. The more friends one can make the better! http://www.melbournechessclub.org/co...yer-interviews

    But they can be a nuisance when busy trying to achieve things or if they waste one's time discussing mundane topics
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    Michael, do you think cheating Australian IMs have a bit of convict in them?

    Michael, have you more recently stated that you came to Australia at the age of 12?

    And if technology is so advanced how come CNN on the link here can't sync their audio and video?

    1) I came at 15.
    2) This is a question for CNN not for MB
    3) What is the connection between Q1 and Q2?
