and if you're not doing what an athlete does, how are you playing a sport.


Isn't pool classified as a sport?

Not much different from competing in a real time strategy game or first person shooter.

Does anybody still go bowling? Growing up, my hometown (very blue collar) had three places. They were always jam packed. League night was insane. Now all three have been bulldozed over. I don't think I have bowled in 25 years.

The overall popularity of bowling really has plummeted. I mostly attribute it to the fact that younger generations prefer to socialize via smartphone than to go out and do a group activity like bowling. In my area I only know of ONE remaining bowling alley and I live in a heavily populated and urbanized area.

The ball is to big and heavy for them.

There is 5 in Ottawa and 1 across the river. 5 pin not 10 pin


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

Bowling is still a thing, although I’ve never cared for it. Weekend nights they do black lights, glowing stuff etc. instead of the usual.

Once I had them laughing about the anagram for bowling...we usually didn't stay long.


"I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know no way of judging of the future but by the past."
Patrick Henry 1775

I personally believe in the tooth fairy, Santa Claus and that deficit spending is sustainable forever. We really do need more Admirals in the Navy than ships and that millions of more poor immigrants will jump start the economy.
