    I could say something really suggestive about snooker requiring bigger balls and longer cues, but I won't.

    It's been a while but if I recall Snooker has bumpers in the table and one of the objectives is to prevent the other guy from sinking his balls.

    hence the term - being snookered.

    On what? I gots no turntable. I have thought about buying one but really no need.

    Sure, it has a great view, but does it have free Wi-Fi?

    Okko's Inn the new anime movie from Mad House. Is like a pixar movie, it made my sister and I ball out in tears. What the heck Mad House, what the heck?

    Had to make a joke about Advenger's Retirment, to make us feel a lot better.


    I have not told my family about my secret relationship, should I open it up for them? Think my sister is on to me, but hey what they know anyways?


    I am an evil arsehole. :)

    :) Snooker is played on a 12' by 6' table, with 23 balls on the table (including cue ball). The objective is to score more points than your opponent. Points are scored by potting (sinking) balls in sequence. Consecutive balls potted constitutes a 'break'. The maximum break achievable is 147 points - that is 15 reds (with black balls), followed by all colour balls in sequence.
    The definitive term 'snookered' refers to the situation where a player can't directly hit a target ball because the cue ball is positioned behind another ball, necessitating an indirect hit by bouncing the cue ball off a side cushion.
    Snooker is a game of immense skill and pure judgement.

    I’m going to guess that Earl is sharing from his heart...probably based on experience! :D

    I must have traveled at the speed of light recently because all my energy seems to have been converted to mass ... squared.

    Who'd have thought that a facility to send photos to another device, could be abused?! :eek:
    It's spawned a whole new crimewave: cyber-flashing. Nice one Apple!

    That is Apple's business paradigm ... a solution in search of a problem. :(
