    Wouldn't it be rude of me to answer that question truthfully?

    ἁμαρτία--in English "hamartia"--is Aristotle's word for the fatal flaw that leads to a hero's downfall. It entails enormous narcissism and grandiosity, along with a determination to defeat and disgrace all enemies (and perceived enemies) and be recognized as the greatest person in the world. Sound like anyone you know?

    Since DJ doesn't have a belt (see avatar), how would he know anything about hitting below one?

    Bible Belt? Is that the drink with Maker’s Mark, Triple Sec, lemon and lime juices?

    Are you sure it isn't the drink with Jack Daniel's, Kahlua, Amaretto, Guinness Stout and Coca-Cola?

    Is this turning into a genealogy thread?

    Doesn't that only matter to those of us who come from the deep end of the gene pool?

    What if a player (me, for instance) is able to tilt the table ever so slightly in order to sink his ball in the proper pocket?
