Except that's not the rule. The rule is CB remaining fraction of original speed + CB/OB overlap fraction (not OB speed) = 1.

As described above, CB outgoing speed + OB outgoing speed = more than...

Dr. Dave's calculations (https://billiards.colostate.edu/technical_proofs/TP_3-2.pdf) confirm what you say about a stunned CB: its after-collision speed is 1 minus the overlap fraction times its...

Nah. The kid obviously knows the hit is coming and rolls with it, and then falls into a space in the floor. The bookshelf and tv are presumably cardboard.

Fast and hard are the same thing. How fast/hard you hit the shot is about how far you want the CB to go. There's usually no reason to want the OB to go fast.

Yup, with lots of practice. It would be more accurate to say "see where your stroke is pointed".
