Such a man spends all his life playing every day for small stakes. Give him every morning the money that he may gain during the day, on condition that he does not play-you will make him unhappy. It will perhaps be said what he seeks is the amusement of play, not gain. Let him play then for nothing, he will lose interest and be wearied. ***Blaise Pascal***

Here's the fix for it if the admin here wants to install a nifty addon for vbulletin. I use it on all my forums. Keeps threads with inline images (IMG tags) from collapsing cells and/or creating widespread side scrolling chaos from lazy persons that won't resize their images because they think it's facebarf....

Site admin, this nifty little addon is fully customizable as to what size the images will display as. It doesn't alter the actual attachment, it just scales it down for display. PM me if you have any questions. It plays very nice with VB 3.8.xx. I strongly recommend it!

I don't post on the political forum but it's hard to see a pool room like hard times close and not discuss the reasons.

In St Louis I've seen politicians fail a community to the point where a pool hall closed because it wasn't safe to go there and I've seen politicians try to block a pool hall from opening because the pool hall meant "trouble".

John Waihee used to stop in Hawaiian Brian's quite a bit when he was the Governor of Hawaii back in the 90s. He would play cheap 9-ball with the lady who worked in the pro shop and he bought an old Balabushka cue out of the shop for $8000.

He brought politics to the pool room.

One thing that I thought was humorous was that he had signed the bill for no smoking in bars and restaurants in the state of Hawaii and then would stand right beside the "No Smoking Sign" by the pool table and light up his cigarettes and smoke while he played pool.

I liked that guy.

He must have gave up pool or have a home table because I haven't seen him in Brian's for years and years.

Saw him in Vegas a few years ago. Ran into him in a Casino elevator and he look at me and I looked at him, then we both said, "I know you".

Sorry. I was a little on edge when I read that. No insult taken.

I like this idea, and you are right in that could easily be implemented pretty quickly.

I run VB 3.8.11, same family as this site....that'd be my suggestion if its really an issue.

I use Tapatalk to access the forum. It has a Home screen that uses its own algorithm to decide what to present to you. It also shows the oldest (or newest?) picture from the thread with the topic. I can say I was extremely disgusted seeing some post from the NPR section presenting an image of a passed out naked homeless man shitting himself on the sidewalk. As far as Iím concerned, nothing good happens in NPR.

The vote/question is flawed. Its asking people who participate in that sub forum if they want a separate space. Of course they are going to say no.

The better vote would be in the main forum to see whether or not people would enjoy an NPR forum free from politics.

That way its not the few deciding for the many.

But in the end, its Mikes house, so whatever he says goes.
