    [–] Bullets are quite weird... njwatson32 2 points ago in Jokes

    Anchors are also weird. You drop them when you use them, and pick them up when you don't.

    [–] Ronnie O'Sullivan hits 1000th century njwatson32 1 points ago in billiards

    Right. The best player (by raw skill) in any sport is almost always an active player.

    [–] Ronnie O'Sullivan hits 1000th century njwatson32 1 points ago in billiards

    There wasn't as much skill in the tour back then. Outside the top 16 it dropped off much more quickly.

    No, it's an Omanyte.

    [–] My friend played this safe on me a few years ago. I can’t remember if I was stripes or on the 8, but these were the only balls left. What would you do if you were stripes? If you were on the 8? njwatson32 4 points ago in billiards

    Stripes: Thin off the 15 to tie it up with the 8. Make your opponent split them.

    8: First accept the fact that you've probably lost. Then I'd kick at the 8 lightly and try to hit it half ball on the 15 side (i.e. just barely miss the 15). Hopefully that would leave a thin enough cut on the 15 that shape on the 8 wouldn't be guaranteed.

    [–] How Americans can end the shutdown in one day: Call for a strike njwatson32 1 points ago in politics

    If TSA and ATC go on strike, they will get paid. Congressmen will very quickly pass the 2019 Air Servicepeople's Salary Help Out Legislative Enactment which will do nothing else but pay them.

    I got Judd's autograph on my ticket, but I was one of the lucky ~10.

    Reminder that Ronnie came back from 4-0 against Joe Perry two years ago in the Masters final. Granted, Judd is a better player than Joe, but still.

    Trump is warming up (currently practicing splitting the pack). No way Ronnie will.

    [–] Billiards possibly in 2024 Paris Olympics Games njwatson32 1 points ago in billiards

    It's not any less of a sport than shooting, archery, or golf.

    [–] Billiards possibly in 2024 Paris Olympics Games njwatson32 1 points ago in billiards

    Lots of them are one-offs too, like Neil Robertson from Australia or Luca Brecel from Belgium. I think only China and the UK could consistently provide top-tier players.

    That said, if snooker appears in the Olympics, maybe that would encourage more players in different countries.

    I've been relatively impressed with Trump's temperament this week (with the exception of the end of Frame 3 last night). That said, I'm still backing Ronnie today. It's my first time watching live snooker and a Rocket win would be amazing to see.

    [–] Every Republican in Congress rn njwatson32 0 points ago in AdviceAnimals

    Yeah a luxury tax is progressive. It would also bankrupt the government.

    [–] Every Republican in Congress rn njwatson32 4 points ago in AdviceAnimals

    Poor people need to spend nearly 100% of the income to survive. Rich people spend a tiny fraction of their income. A flat percent consumption tax is therefore regressive.

    Unsurprisingly, neither player took their 10 minutes.

    [–] What do you genuinely just not understand? njwatson32 7 points ago in AskReddit

    We invented the language and symbols for describing mathematics, but mathematics itself is an abstract concept that governs the universe, which we discovered.
