Does a ball resting on the table having an edge or is it just floating there??? Cheese an rice give it a break. You do realize your on a billiard forum dont you??

Everyone has photographic memory; some just don't have the film.

Because they have three dimensions, they have depth and take up space in our universe. Solid figures are identified according to the features that are unique to each type of solid. Specifically, you can observe the numbers of faces, edges, and vertices, as well as the shape of the base. The flat surfaces of a solid figure are its faces, or sides as they are commonly called. The base is the face on which the figure rests. The edge of a solid figure is the line segment where two faces meet. A vertex (plural: vertices) is the corner that is formed where the ends of the line segments of two or more faces meet. A sphere is a solid figure that has no faces, edges, or vertices. This is because it is completely round; it has no flat sides or corners. [Please pay particular attention to the last paragraph]

I thought you were going to leave the instruction to Stan. You can search AZ and find a number of places where Stan and/or his supporters say that CTE will straighten out your stroke... or has that changed?

Maybe by the time the book comes out CTE will have morphed into HAMB.

The far side's terrain is rugged with a multitude of impact craters and relatively few flat lunar maria compared to the near side. It has one of the largest craters in the Solar System, the South Pole–Aitken basin. Maybe they should call it the Far Edge of The Moon. There seems to be growing evidence that round objects don't have edges. It might logically follow that there is no such thing as CTE.

While we're on the subject, how exactly do you see the "center" of the ball? The center is a point 1.125 inches beneath the surface. I don't have x-ray vision, do you?

In actuality, the place where the tip strikes the ball would most accurately be called "the nearest point on the near side," not the center. This is becoming rather depressing. I am getting images of rabid idiots arguing for the last 25 years about a non-existent topic. Say, how do you write a book about a non-existent topic?

Yea i don't have any original material either,lol. Just like the other regulars on here, just keep posting the same old shit that we've posted 500 times. It's why I've pretty much stopped posting. You, me, Johnny and whoever aren't changing anyone's minds,lol.
Although that was a good diagram you posted on fractional aim lines the other day. Very well done. Just a shame the very first response to it had to mention CTE, and it was from a guy who actually wrote a book on fractional aiming. You'd think he could have just posted about fractional aiming without bringing up CTE. But then again, that's not the aiming forum way of doing things.

When it comes to pocketing pool balls, you can stick with almost any method and eventually get it working consistently. It could take weeks, months, or sometimes years, but with enough practice you'll eventually get it working.
Or watch the Truth Series on youtube that will be released at around the same time as the book. Guess what that will cost you? Here's a hint, it will be less then a 10 dollar book on amazon.

Dan i think you have competition for your "book obsession syndrome" problem.
