And it's still being done at Buffalo's Billiards in Jefferson, LA, even during pro tournaments.

We had a rule, even in the grown up part, if the ball didn’t go six inches...you could take the shot over...
....and you made sure it didn’t go six inches.

If pool players had to have knowledge of geometry and physics before talking about geometry and physics, all of the aiming threads would disappear.

If it didnt go further than a dollar bill you got to re-shoot. Sometimes move it back or just hurry up and shoot where it lays. HAHAHAHA

When I grew up, scratch on the 8 was loss of game. Make the 8 in on the break was a win unless you also scratched, then it was a loss. When you broke in 8-ball, if you made something that was your group unless you made an even number of each, then you could choose.

Ahh, the Louisiana Crawl.

There's a picture of JoeyA doing that somewhere on this forum.

This is basically the APA rule except for the last bit. In the APA you can't choose directly, but it's open until you legally make a ball.
