I think they deflect more this year.

You should see cue ball deflection the years that Haley's comet passes by. Its like every time you hit the cue ball you might as well be doing a masse shot.

I read that is only caused by the mass of the first 2 months of the year...... could be true.

All this is true but what really makes a cue ball go crazy are the days with a neap tide.

Lets not even talk about neap tides... Look at my avatar. Nuff said about cue balls and neap tides.

It does deflect more on leap years. Another scientifically proven fact is "pull of gravity is amplified by 0.001 hc/p" Thus, explains less bad rolls this year. According to:

I dunno about that but it seems to leap off the table more often:D

the cueball is only affected by the moon's gravitational pull, which varies like the tides. those bad nights when youre missing everything it is pulling directly left or right.

I dunno about all of this. I am sure there must be something to it. I mean, when there's a reference to it on the internet...it MUST be true.

All I really know is this. When cue ball deflection causes me to miss, I definitely Leap! :D

Wow! The stories of all the various misconceptions about pool is actually true. Can't believe all the rumors that people believe.

Looks like we might need another Jacksonville project to prove/disprove the aforementioned theories...

;)

Please. No flame wars on this topic.

I think there will be less deflection this year because Castro retired. :rolleyes:

According to the way they talked in the old movies I suppose Cubans of Chinese or Japanese descent would deflect to the US!

Don't forget the Coriolis Effect.

For our friends in the south, where the cue ball deflects in the opposite direction :-)

Think we need bob jewett to do some further testing on this subject. Just to be sure.

suppose to have a 'Sadie Hawkins' day in leap year. I was waiting on a girl that wanted to reshape my tip for me.

Since time is your basis...

Would that then mean that more deflection occurs in the fall, at the end of daylight savings?

And of course less deflection would have occured last Sunday at the begining of daylight savings?

I believe cueball deflect less after midnite b/c humidity goes up.
More in winter time b/c it's dry here.
