in reply to use slop;

Said BBQ:
The way I'm used to playing pool back home is a bit different than the pool played in the US.
That reminds me of the time I traveled to the UK to visit my brother (he's British and I'm a citizen of the USA). He took me to a pool hall and asked if we could play "American style" pool. Needless to say, the British idea of how Americans play it is rather amusing and I kept chuckling about their assumptions.

Later on, my brother had a particularly difficult shot. I suggested he put a little "left English" on it. That earned me an interesting look from everyone.

Hoist on my somewhat less than multi-cultural petard :)

    I'm still trying to figure out which one is that "qeue ball" you Americans refer to so often. And how come you never use a bucket of soy sauce when playing pool?
