Another attempt to downplay the importance of preserving American Pocket Billiard History World Records - maniac is definitely a rep for the sicko's over at the cancel culture dept. another bad actor - maybe he could help j.s. out at his next theater show as a an intermission act in between his chopped video presentation. that would be a good gig 4 him I think.
The preservation of John Schmidt's historic record of 626 balls run is accomplished. You need not accept it as your acceptance is not required.

This is understandable, as with their speed enhanced/chopped video - it is possible to engineer/create generalizations - without presenting unedited video (they claim to have) as sufficient evidence. I disagree with Sagan, it IS POSSIBLE to provide sufficient evidence - it's would seem - bca and j.s. - do not have that evidence - they CLAIM to have. Going to have to look up ad nauseum, thanks for posting - your opinion is honest and unbiased. I know the shortest distance between two points. ;-).

Too funny:
-straightline finds 626 likely legit, given the information on hand.
-Danny finds straightline honest and unbiased.
-Danny figures out straightline does not refute 626.
-Danny places straightline and ignore and edits post.

Danny, how long ago was that?

Is there anyone who considers you an upper-level 14.1 player now? You don't compete and you don't set records.

You're jealousy of John Schmidt's accomplish is well known.
Makes you wonder, doesn't it?

He hasn't won Jack shit against anyone who can fire back in a LOOOOOOOONG time.

I know he will say bca/ Charlie Williams/ Behrman/ CIA/ media/ aliens/ athlete's foot conspire against him, but shit....can't 'one of the greats' shoot the balls in the hole and overcome the long list of those who conspire against him?

Danny! Another reply to a post from three months ago, that was asked and answered.

Still running on empty, trying to create a conspiracy!

Here's another good old post.
Danny Harriman, posted on Mar 14 2007
Someone on this forum is allway's referring to that perfect 14.1 run (Steve Lipsky) well I realize that it is nothing like John Shmidt's 246, I have ran over 200 many times but never before did it look as easy as this particular run. I have watched John's recording of his run and he makes it look easy, what a great champion he is. ...
Your's truly, Danny Harriman (Bob Jewett's 14.1 challenge Champ)

Lol. You are talking about you.

Was John's record run rejected by the Smithsonian? That is what your delusionary self is acting like. Put up or shut up.

There's more stuff the Smithsonian DOESNT have, than stuff it DOES have and there's a BIG difference between UNPRESENTED and REJECTED...
Danny does not understand the difference between preservation of historical material and arbitration of achievement. Danny, preservation of the documenting of a feat is not confirmation of a feat. It is merely the attestation that a feat was claimed to have happened. The governing bodies for each sport are the ones who decide which records are going to be officially listed. Literally no one at the Smithsonian is going to go on record and say that they have certified Usain Bolt's world records. What they will say is that they have material in their archives that has recorded the world records attained by Usain Bolt. And they don't have that material UNTIL someone gives it to them. As for what they accept and what they don't. They accept just about anything that has historical and cultural significance. And the more significant the more that they will invest into authenticating the material. For the world record straight pool run it would be more a curiosity than something they would really care about spending any extra resources to authenticate beyond finding the governing body and asking. And if the authentication is supplied they might find that acceptable and simply enter the information into their catalog. The smithsonian probably has a huge backlog of such submissions, historical accomplishments of little general cultural significance. So even if John's team has submitted the relevant materials it is possible that it doesn't show up in their catalog for years to come. But whether or not it has been submitted or even accepted has no bearing on the fact that the Smithsonian doesn't CERTIFY that the feat itself happened or didn't. They rely on experts in the field to provide that.

Shaved slate was of course entirely made up but not completely crazy, chopoed video isn't even accurate unless we can't differentiate between cutting off a chickens head and watching it run across the road quickly...but this Smithsonian kick he's on now is just plain desperate.

Looking forward to a reply by xproxyx in September.

37 signatures on the certification for Mosconi's 526 :)

[repeating post #3348]
oh, ok, that makes all the difference then......if it were 17 then of course it would be questionable but with 37 people there is no doubt and Danny doesn't need the run on video to believe it happened...... :)

was that how long it lasted? he shot pool for four hours and didn’t miss? what!
Yeah....that sounds pretty fast for 626 balls if you figure in the shots that required some thinking and the racking.

I'm not going to do the math, somebody else can, but off the top of my head that sounds like about 2 1/2 balls per minute. Probably closer to 3 balls per minute when you figure in the racking.

I havent seen the 626, but in the few 400s that are available for viewing he breezes through the first 200 balls practically one stroking everything. Then he slows down a bit after that, but still moves at a brisk pace. His 434 ball run on YouTube only took him two hours to complete.
