    interesting Q

    Name the only chess piece that cannot be triangulated?

    What is the one thing that all pieces can do except the queen?

    The word THE should be deleted. Other things all the rest of the pieces can do, that the Queens can't, include:

    - Sit adjacent to another piece without threatening capture
    - Look silly in a bra
    - Not be the tallest piece from the starting position
    - Not have the right to restrict access to CL

    I thought that Queens gained automatic entry to the CL

    Indeed. I was suggesting that only Queens could witthold. Much like sex - its a 'tool'.

    The king, of course, can threaten capturing all adjacent pieces, but not if defended, whereas the Q can execute the threat regardless - much the same as myself!

    whao! thanks for the punny ideas guys here's some more..

    1.Queen cant rap but only rock
    2.A promoted Queen is a transvertite
    3.Queen always likes to mate the opponent king but waits till its king enters the castle.
    4.Queen is equivalent to two rooks one on top of the other or a perverted I mean inverted rook.
