Women are definitely stronger. We are [Fe]males, after all...

Some of what makes me me is real, some of what makes me me is imaginary...I guess I'm just complex. ;P

Hmm...I'm having trouble seeing the picture, but I think you and I probably have something similar. Good job finding it first :). I'm not sure what method you used, but since I like speaking math...well...

A Witch in a chess game’s a powerful thing;
It can move like a bishop or move like a king.
So how many Witches, one way or another,
Can fit on this board without threatening each other?
I thought fabpig and Y- san were correct with 13, but no reply is forthcoming.
So for another tack.
