    Hey girl and fellas...did you know that they have TV coverage of poker on SBS? It's Late night poker or something rather. Gripping stuff lemme tell youse. Now if they can have poker on TV, then surely they can have chess like rapid - at least.

    i've seen one stat that says 50 million people in the US play poker recreationally
    i don't know if that is exaggerated but it does seem very popular in the US!
    i guess similary in UK as well, hence the channel 4 program.

    the nearest thing in chess i've seen would have been the PCA chess videos back
    in the days when Intel were sponsoring chess.
    they were very exciting videos of the rapid play circuit in paris, moscow, etc.

    Quanta is also the plural of quantum as in quantum mechanics and the word quantum was chosen because at the sub-atomic level everything seems to happen in discrete amounts, not on a continuum. The concept of a continuum at the macro level seems to be a function of the statistical behavior of quanta at the sub atomic level.

    So I was making a rather poor pun on the word "discrete".

    "They" is not a preposition.
