I'm loving that Xamarin for 2017 and Xamarin for 2015 don't share the folder they download an extra eleventy jillion GB of Android dependencies too so I have to have them bloating my HDD up twice.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

HUMAN VS MACHINE
First of all - all credits goes to Sir Roger Penrose...
He's looking for humans that can see the solution for this chess puzzle to learn more about their brains and about brains at all...
The point is that machines will give up this game, while humans can see a draw for white...
Do you able to force a draw?
HINT: Notice that even black has a huge advantage in pieces the only ones can move are those 3 bishops at the middle-left. So this is a game of white king against 3 black bishops on a smaller board (there are places king can't go)
Skipper: We'll fix it. Alex: Fix it? How you gonna fix this? Skipper: Grit, spit and a whole lotta duct tape.
I know the king can make infinite diagonal moves and never be in check.
Should all three bishops leave the current diagonal, then the pawn at B6 could potentially move to take a promotion and threaten black king with mate.
