    runnels vs. yee shot question

    As usual, I'm going against the grain. I think he absolutely knew that the kiss would be unavoidable with the english he chose. He didn't barely kiss... he hit it dead center.

    My ruminations about Covid 19

    This is just some stuff I'm observing and thinking about. I'll probably want to add to it later. Make of it what you will; I don't know myself how much of it is relevant to the way we should be guided. USA 50 million +/- tests Worldometer Corona virus USA says: 3,926,000 alleged positives...

    Baby Huey and The Pilot are facing off this week!

    Yeah, you never know. I said "a friend" but he actually claims he's my uncle. He's from Nigeria, but he showed me a family tree and my name was definitely on it...

    Baby Huey and The Pilot are facing off this week!

    You looked really rusty, but in the first two games there were a lot of very difficult situations that required extra thought. Once a slow pace is set, it may be hard to speed up once you settle in. And the pilot was having trouble maintaining air speed too. :D I have a friend who raises...

    One Pocket Videos and TV Pool Balls

    Agreed. I don't like the 6-7-14-15. I do actually like replacing the 4-12 with pink instead of purple...easier to see as a spectator several feet from the table or watching on a screen.

    Alternate rules for TD's to manage tournament match times

    I think that people suggesting the use of chess clocks were probably assuming that they would be used in pool as they are in chess... IOW, if one player runs out of time, the other guy wins. That's the answer to your question about how the guy who was behind could win by stalling. Also...

    Alternate rules for TD's to manage tournament match times

    Agree on eliminating 7.2 7.3 -- following "tournament director" add: "or either player" (this solves the "darmoose problem" :D by adding a level of protection for weaker players in handicapped matches) 7.3 -- replace "elongating" with "lengthening." 7.4 -- Change first sentence to avoid...

    Here it is only March, and I'm ready to nominate an entry for Funniest Post of the Year. (I can't remember... was it Kipling's Jungle Book where the elephant called the giraffe a lard ass?)
