A narrow ruling

The court held that the officer didn't knowingly violate the child's Constitutional rights so he gets immunity. What about ignorance of the law being no excuse?

Also, I am sure that he violated...

my experiences with the zone

I first recognized the zone as an altered state in my teens. It was roughly twenty years later that I read a book by a world champion pistol shooter named J Michael Plaxco that delved deeply into the...

too much in the first post

You have a tendency to write long detailed posts, a flaw of my own. I used to write and edit things that had to include every detail because the instructions had to be followed...

entitlement

He/she isn't entitled to a thing not specified in the tournament rules. It is more a question of what the A player feels is right. Last week I saw a guy sitting there with a sign as I went in a...

class

It isn't poor sportsmanship, more a lack of class. Does an A player really need a C player to make a mental error to win? They will make enough pool mistakes that an A player should be able to find a...

why not?

I would have given you nine-six for that session, assuming we are even before that five game in a row loss. Why not, I am playing on your money. Next time we played I would start at eight-six again...

old Joe

There was a place that was perfect to pump up a little, small action on the table twenty-four seven. It was an absolute dump off in the piney woods of Satsuma LA, didn't even have a name. It had a...

The Marvin Manalo shot

I think a very similar shot had a lot to do with Marvin Manalo quitting pool. A young gun from the Philippines, he was setting the world on fire. He tried to thin a ball very thin near the rail then...

Shift collars and columns!

I destroyed a lot of shift collars and a few columns. I also got very good at popping a hood and unhanging th arms at the bottom of the column in half a second. Those threes on the trees didn't...

"shut down the thread!"

Putting the word hitler in a thread used to be code for shut down the thread in the old days. Any mention of hitler ended a thread.

I figure anybody that can find a topic that can run a hundred...

shows why the zone is tough to talk about!

pj,

I reread that entire old thread. Most of it had nothing at all to do with the zone I am interested in. While hints make me think a couple people might have knowledge of the zone none really...

bigger stronger faster, so what?

Let's grant that today's generation is bigger stronger faster, plain better athletes. Smarts are a combination of raw brain power and learning. I'm none too sure today's generation is smarter other...

angles and distance

Playing angles is obvious, study the angles when planning the runout. Once angles start working the game becomes much much easier. The thing it took me a long time to learn was distance. In my early...

Yuck!

I read three pages and jumped to the end so this may all have already been said, probably has been in other posts.

terrible mechanics and stroke!

I watched a few minutes of Ralph Greenleaf shooting pool over and over. Horrible preshot and a stroke few today would envy. No question at all his warm up strokes looked like a pump handle! His tip...

I used to try that!

When I was young and bent better I sometimes pretty much laid on the cue and sighted down the cue for paper thin cut shots a table length away. It often worked but I gave it up. I don't really...

Dwell time doesn't matter

One of the "truths of AZB pool physics" holds that a dwell time with a variance of up to forty percent total doesn't matter.(Plus or minus fifteen to twenty percent.) Somehow I have always suspected...
