    Funny pic/gif thread...

    You do realize the cartoon was about trick-or-treaters, right?

    Jesse Bowman v Dennis Orcollo 1 game of 8 ball 5k

    The video is and has been working fine for me and I presume everyone else since nobody else has said anything. You might try clearing your cache and rebooting your computer/phone, that will sometimes solve problems like you are having. Another thing you can try is going to the video from this...

    Big changes in FargoRatings

    Aaaah, no wonder I haven't been showing up the in the top 100 world list. Explains everything. And here I had been, always thinking I must not be...

    object ball throw

    I had considered this argument, but when sticking to the vertical axis it's not just the speed of the shot and the dirtiness of the balls that you have to take into consideration as you mentioned, but you also have to judge for the amount of cut induced throw and adjust your aim accurately and...

    object ball throw

    Good question, one I was discussing recently with someone. By staying on the vertical axis, you don't have to worry about squirt and swerve, but now you do have to worry about cut induced throw. By using true gearing english, you don't have to worry about cut induced throw, but now you do have...

    Pressed triangle tips

    If someone wants to keep it cheap and wouldn't otherwise have any other use for a vice (everybody should have a vice though), I would think any C-clamp of the type below would work well as long as the jaw diameters are bigger than the tip and you keep the tip centered on both jaws...

    Pocket size?

    For roughly 550 and below Fargo players who are not likely to improve much over time for whatever reason, 4.75 or 5 inch corner pockets might be the way to go. Too much tighter and you may find that it takes the fun out of it. For 550-650 players, 4.5 inch pockets strike a pretty good balance...

    Nope, kind of like you continuing to say it isn't when you know it is and after it was proven to you beyond all doubt. Both terms are fully appropriate.

    This is clearly a massive clueless moment for you. How is saying that it does the same job at picking winners as races to 8 even remotely similar to saying I like this format style? Look, we all brain fart from time to time, and when we realize it it is best to just acknowledge it and shrug it...

    Just because it can also be called a shoot out does not mean that it isn't also a set. It is clearly a set as well. Things can be categorized multiple ways at the same time, but you already knew that too.

    All I've defended is that it isn't horrible about picking winners, and that I find it hard to fault somebody for trying something new when the old has substantial history of not working well. Anybody that can read into that that I think this format is the greatest thing since sliced bread is...

    If you think it does a really poor job of picking the winners in comparison to a race to 8, you are clueless. If you think I have said that I like this format, you are clueless.

    A set as we have been using it is just more than one of something that is intended to go together. More than one spot shot, when there are intended to be four or more together as is the case here, is a set. More than one game of 9 ball, when they are intended to go together, is a set of 9...

    No involvement, and haven't posted anything that would give anybody the idea that I care about this tour any more than any other tournament, or even that I like it for that matter, so you probably shouldn't assume. My only purpose was to address the false notion that this format doesn't do a...

    Can you count? There is four of them, or more. More than one becomes a set, it just isn't a set of what you would preferred it to be a set of. What's you point, because it sure had nothing to do with my point? My point was that I think people have more reason to cry about breaks deciding...
