It appears that this is what is going on as Xerox is now trying to buy HP. That came as a huge surprise to me as I thought Xerox was on its way down. Carl Icahn owns lots of shares of both.

Chalk is made of ground-up sand. If the tip is softer than the cue ball, nearly all of the penetration will be into the tip. If the tip is as hard as the cue ball, half of the penetration of the...

I think for most pool players -- think around APA 3 -- this is the most likely way for them to make both balls. I also think most pros would do the same except they might play with left stun to keep...

The most effective jump cues seem to be the ones with the hardest tips. Many of them have phenolic tips. Phenolic tips damage the cue ball. That's something to keep in mind if you are playing on your...

In general, if the subject is brought up and no progress is made in three shots each, you have a stalemate. Call a third party over if you can't figure it out on your own.

If you weren't fuzzy, you wouldn't be real. Or maybe nothing is real. Or maybe everything is real.

I'm confused because I thought that Brunswick Corporation had sold all of its bowling at the time that it moved billiards into the "Life Fitness" group. Evidently they still make bowling balls.
