Party of the first part/party of the second part?

The article claims that go is hard because it has 10^170 "possible moves." Even taking this to mean "possible positions," it is still nonsense. It is easy to devise games with as many possibilities as you like and a trivial winning strategy. What makes go hard is its long time horizon. Unlike chess, where for the most part each move has an immediate impact, the consequences of moves in go may not become apparent until much later in the game. The larger branching factor also comes into it, but mostly it is the difficulty of evaluating the position.
Quoting from www.drivinglaws.org,
In Arizona it is not illegal to deliberately drive through a yellow light. A yellow light means only that traffic facing the light is “warned” that a red light will soon follow. As long as your vehicle entered the intersection or passed the crosswalk or limit line before the light turned red, you haven’t broken the law.
Thanks for the link. In Arizona (and AFAIK everywhere in the US), it is perfectly OK to enter an intersection while the light is yellow. What you must not do is enter the intersection after the light has turned red. If you followed the practice cited in your link, a great deal of confusion and possibly havoc might ensue. No need for the snark, by the way.
"Everyone knows that when you see a yellow light, you are supposed to slow down and stop."
Nonsense. What you are supposed to do is use your head. The yellow light is just a warning to expect a red light soon. The law is clear on this. If you can safely proceed through the intersection, you should do so. Slowing down and stopping unexpectedly is both annoying and dangerous.
