  1. My dogs starting barking for a hot minute.

  2. My quick math wasn't exact on the proportion of men and women (15% of the men's number) chess players since I only looked at the bottom tier of the chart, but, I was close and it is a fact that male players vastly outnumber female players at all levels. From internet:" In 2019 only 14.6% of players in chess tournaments in the United States were female and similar numbers were found in European tournaments".
