Imagine Dragons - Thunder




Lyrics
Just a young gun with a quick fuse
I was uptight, wanna let loose
I was dreaming of bigger things
And wanna leave my own life behind
Not a yes sir, not a follower
Fit the box, fit the mold
Have a seat in the foyer, take a number
I was lightning before the thunder
Thunder, thunder
Thunder, thun', thunder
Thun-thun-thunder, thunder, thunder
Thunder, thun', thunder
Thun-thun-thunder, thunder
Thunder, feel the thunder
Lightning and the thunder
Thunder, feel the thunder
Lightning and the thunder
Thunder, thunder
Thunder
Kids were laughing in my classes
While I was scheming for the masses
Who do you think you are?
Dreaming 'bout being a big star
You say you're basic, you say you're easy
You're always riding in the back seat
Now I'm smiling from the stage while
You were clapping in the nose bleeds
Thunder
Thunder, thun', thunder
Thun-thun-thunder, thunder, thunder
Thunder, thun', thunder
Thun-thun-thunder, thunder
Thunder, feel the thunder
Lightning and the thunder
Thunder, feel the thunder
Lightning and the thunder
Thunder
Thunder, feel the thunder
Lightning and the thunder, thunder
Thunder, feel the thunder
Lightning and the thunder, thunder
Thunder, feel the thunder
Lightning and the thunder, thunder
Thunder, feel the thunder
Lightning and the thunder, thunder
Thunder, feel the thunder
Lightning and the thunder, thunder
Thunder, thunder, thunder
Thun-thun-thunder, thunder
Thunder, thunder, thunder
Thun-thun-thunder, thunder
Thunder, thunder, thunder
Thun-thun-thunder, thunder
Thunder, thunder, thunder
Thun-thun-thunder, thunder

First things first
I'ma say all the words inside my head
I'm fired up and tired of the way that things have been, oh ooh
The way that things have been, oh ooh
 Second thing 
Second, don't you tell me what you think that I can be
I'm the one at the sail, I'm the master of my sea, oh ooh
The master of my sea, oh ooh

I was broken from a young age
 Taking my sulking to the masses  Write down my poems for the few
That looked at me took to me, shook to me, feeling me
 Singing from heart ache from the pain
Take up my message from the veins  Speaking my lesson from the brain  Seeing the beauty through the

(Pain)
You made me a, you made me a believer, believer 
(Pain, pain)
You break me down, you build me up, believer, believer 
(Pain)
I let the bullets fly, oh let them rain
My life, my love, my drive, it came from
(Pain)
You made me a, you made me a believer, believer 

 Third things third 
Send a prayer to the ones up above 
All the hate that you've heard has turned your spirit to a dove, oh ooh
Your spirit up above, oh ooh

I was choking in the crowd  Living my brain up in the cloud  Falling like ashes to the ground  Hoping my feelings, they would drown
But they never did, ever lived, ebbing and flowing 
Inhibited, limited 
'Til it broke up and it rained down
It rained down, like

You made me a, you made me a believer, believer

(Pain)
You made me a, you made me a believer, believer 

Last things last
By the grace of the fire and the flames 
You're the face of the future, the blood in my veins, oh ooh
The blood in my veins, oh ooh
But they never did, ever lived, ebbing and flowing 
Inhibited, limited 
'Til it broke up and it rained down
It rained down, like

Stockfish Wins Chess.com Computer Championship

The powerful, open-source chess engine Stockfish narrowly beat out two strong commercial engines to win the first Chess.com Computer Chess Championship this week.
null
Stockfish placed clear first in the 10-engine round robin to reach the superfinal, and then edged the second-place Houdini in the rapid, blitz, and bullet finals to win the championship, which was shown on Chess.com's live server Nov. 13 through 16.
null
The Chess.com Computer Chess Championship was announced in September and featured the 10 strongest chess engines in the world. Three days of round-robin rapid play determined the top two engines, who faced off in a thrilling superfinal for the title.
null
All four days of the championship were covered live on Twitch.tv/chess and Chess.com/TV, with master commentary by IM Daniel Rensch and GM Robert Hess, making it the first computer tournament to be broadcast in real time with professional production and live announcers. Full video replays of all four days of coverage can be watched in the Twitch archives. 
The aim of the tournament was to showcase the strength and beauty of computer chess in a viewer-friendly, rapid and blitz tournament so that the audience could follow along in real time.

That said, there was some serious computer science behind the event, as each engine played from a powerful Amazon Web Services computer. For more technical details on the engine and hardware configuration, see the announcement article.
null
One major facet of the tournament format was that there were no opening books, forcing each engine to independently make every one of its moves. The engines were strong enough to derive some serious opening theory on the fly, with most games following solid and established opening lines.
According to Norm Schmidt, Chess.com's technical advisor for the tournament, here is the breakdown of openings "chosen" by the engines and the results of the games.
  • French Defense = 44 games, 7 white wins, 28 draws, 9 black wins
  • Queens Pawn/Gambit = 30 games, 14 white wins, 11 draws, 5 black wins
  • Queen's Indian Defense = 11 games, 3 white wins, 6 draws, 2 black wins
  • Ruy Lopez = 6 games, 2 white wins, 4 draws, 0 black wins
  • Caro–Kann Defense = 5 games, 0 white wins, 4 draws, 1 black win
  • Sicilian = 4 games, 0 white wins, 3 draws, 1 black win
Although the world's top 10 engines were slotted into the tournament, most of the attention was on the "big three" engines of Stockfish, Komodo, and Houdini, universally considered the three strongest engines of all time.
The three engines battled fiercely in the round robin, with Houdini needing a brilliant win in the last round to clinch its spot in the superfinal.

The dominant performances by Stockfish and Houdini in the rapid round robin led to a superb matchup in the superfinal, with its unique format of five time controls, counting down from rapid to blitz and finally to bullet chess.
The superfinal itself came down to the very last set of games, as Stockfish took a one-point lead into the set of four bullet games. Two of those four games were decisive, with Houdini and Stockfish each notching exciting wins, allowing Stockfish to take the title.
