    I'm no expert, just an interested spectator, but I'll try.

    The order of play is to sink a red ball, then, and only then, you have to sink a color to set up your next shot at a red. If you don't have a good shot, the best idea is to hide the cue ball behind a color to prevent your opponent from making a shot.

    This video really aptly illustrates a clusterfuck.

    The fact that they got out of the corner without the referee calling for a re-rack is just amazing, but those two are gods of the 12x6' green world.

    Not snooker.

    Thou shalt not suicide. Someone will miss you. Walk through the pain, remember the laughter and tears, and rejoice!

    There are so many things I missed.

    Woodstock by a year. Too young, and nobody knew about Wavy Gravy before it went down.

    Vietnam by 43 days, plus six weeks of basic. They called off the draft that close to my number being up.

    I never saw Hot Tuna live, either, but here's a gem if y'all like this sort of thing:

    Here's a thing that bugs me, sort of..

    In the Jayhawks song, "Everybody Knows", I hear one of the voices saying something different in the chorus.

    Here's a repost of the video link:



    Here are the lyrics according to genius.com:

    What I hear is debatable, because I have one damaged ear and a nearly twenty year old set of speakers, but I'd like some help here. Not in every chorus, and there are variations...

    I hear one voice in the chorus singing the words, "Steppin' out, everyone can see my face", and another in the harmony singing, "Steppin' out, so no one can see my face", and I feel like it should be sung that way, with the contradictions in life, as everybody knows.

    I'm probably nuts, reading too much into it, but so what?

    This may be interesting for those facing the very real prospect of having less time ahead than they have time before them (regardless whether they are atheist, theist, abrahamic or abrahamic hater or anything in between)

    (For the record, I don't know this guy and neither have I read his blog).

    Thanks for that, but please get off your horse about "Abrahamic" this and that, man.

    A short time might mean a shorter temper in the face of BS that has been heard repeatedly for the last sixty years.

    I wish you well, and time is too short to crab and bitch over inconsequential stuff.

    Apologies.
    I was just trying to deconstruct the identity politics around here that make discussion a lot harder than what it needs to be.

    A noble goal. I recommend more Mozart.

    Why are you qualified to judge all Americans? Now you can piss off.

    Oh, thank you, fuckwit. Did you mean to say, "you're dumb as a rock", or am I unaware of some of the subtleties of English grammar?
