    Funny pic/gif thread...

    Back in '78 or '79 while at Marine Barracks, New London, CT., a lady bet a SSGT $100 that she could piss farther. We all went outside and she pinched herself in some kinda way and sure as he!! pissed twice as far. Wonder if this was her Mother?

    Jumping up on shots, reconsidered.

    When my Dad was teaching me to break, he would literally hold me down. Saying, "Keep your body still". Think it has hindered my break speed, but I can be precise with where I hit the rack and english on the cue ball.

    McDermott D19 Cue
