Here was my question to Damdai: “btw did any of you guys that came to Japan for SBO (or any other time) ever play ARG? Did anyone actually win against him? Ganelon claims so in the forum.” and here was his reply: “I only remember him at one Nakano Royal event we went to. I think Yuu Vega peaced him out of the tournament.”
When adjusted for per capita, the US doesn’t even make the top 10 laureates: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_Nobel_laureates_per_capita Also, you can win a Nobel Prize and still have a list of people you are trying to kill. An American managed to do that already so what does that tell you about Nobel Prizes.
I will put serious money behind this belief that I’d win in a mm against you: 100 yen. I don’t think you’d beat any of the mama bears. If you want me to pass along any particular mm challenges to Japanese players, just let me know and I’ll put the word out.
