Pool Table

Have you ever been curious about something? Curious for years, never really having the motivation or drive to do anything about it? But then, one day, the opportunity to solve the mystery lands in your lap?

And no, I'm not talking about Inog's fascination with homoerotic bestiality...

No, I'm talking about pool tables. For years, they have been a source of curiosity for me. How they are designed, how they are assembled, how they are tuned and leveled... You know, curiosity.

Well, with the professionally negotiated purchase of a pool table by my pal at work, I finally had the chance.

Watching the well-practiced workmen construct the structure from the ground up was a pleasure. The new, dark alder table is smooth, level and pleasing. The process was deceptively simple, I knew, as I have stretched felt over flat surfaces before.

I lost fewer games than I expected. I figure I'm being hustled. the cash games will certainly start soon.

  5. not true!

    you just pretend to not know what to do and the guy would come up behind you and show you - cosy....

    Then we'd play a game and I'd beat them

    It was fun
