Just keep looking at those pretty windmills

My apologies in advance to Margriet, for it is not my intention to make fun of her English which is obviously not her primary language. Just imagine us loud, fat, obnoxious Americans trying to write our blogs in Dutch.
Brave New World
Nevertheless, in a comment on J'adoube, her inadvertent Brave New World reference - "soma chess ambitions" - got me thinking. Unlike modafinil, Huxley's soma is a drug which wouldn't improve your play at all, but instead would make you so happy that you wouldn't care. Legalization and widespread distribution would certainly mark the end of improvement blogs.
