Sure Why Not of the Day: The city of St. Louis dedicated the world’s largest chess piece, a king standing 14.5 feet tall and weighing 2,280 lbs., on Monday. The sculpture is located outside the city’s World Chess Hall of Fame.
“This piece serves as a monument to the chess culture we are creating in St. Louis,” said Mike Wilmering, spokesman for the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of St. Louis.
Your move, St. Louis Arch.
We have a Chess Hall of Fame? Very nice, St. Louis. It’s great that we’re in the news for something other than being a dangerous city.Source: thedailywhat
