Well, you've only been here almost 20 years. You can't expect to notice everything all at once.

There's a chance I'd remember if someone has the same birthday as me. But I sure wouldn't bet on it.

Thank you so much for the birthday wishes, Avatar, StevieG, Fist and Faith, and Menolly! The big six-oh weekend for me was a satisfying experience, dining out at an Irish-themed pub with friends, playing billiards, then going on a camping trip in the soothingly cool mountain forest of eastern Arizona, drinking wine and enjoying the gentle steady rains. Cheers! :cheers:

What kind of "billiards"? (People often have vastly different games behind their use of the term...) :D

I'm referring to a three-way pool hall game known as "cutthroat". One player has pool balls1-5, the second player has pool balls 7-10, and the third player has pool balls 11-15. The objective is to shoot all the balls of your opponents into pockets before all your pool balls are shot into pockets. If a player "scratches" (accidentally sinks the white cue ball into a pocket), then each opponent gets to put one of his/her pool balls back upon the billiard 🎱 table.

Ah, not familiar with that one. :D But I would still call it "pool" rather than "billiards."

To me, billiards is 2 white cue balls, (1 of them "spotted") and 1 red ball, with points for cannon shots and pocketing balls. :D

(When it comes to pool I mainly only play 8-ball.)

Ah, I see. Where I live, "pool" and "billiards" are used interchangeably, but "pool" is more commonly used.

Interesting!

In the day when I had friends who played pool and billiards, they were differentiated the way Av does it. I know South Florida is quite a ways from where CH is, but I would have thought the customs within the US would have remained more similar.
