Quote from: touchingcloth on January 14, 2022, 09:14:19 AMCharlotte's Web is a children's book about a spider who befriends a pig, and not about the horrors of the Nazi death camps. For some reason I'd got it into my head that web is to Charlotte as list is to Schindler.
Quote from: gabrielconroy on January 14, 2022, 10:10:50 AMI had the same misconception for quite a long time, too. I think it's something to do with a sort of Sophie's Choice/Jacob's Ladder mash-up.

Quote from: touchingcloth on January 16, 2022, 12:28:33 PMA break of 147 in snooker means getting 147 points in any single turn, rather than starting with the very first shot of the frame.
Quote from: olliebean on January 16, 2022, 04:11:22 PMIt's only possible at the start of the frame, surely?
Quote from: Endicott on January 17, 2022, 12:56:15 PMFirst shot of frame --> the break offUnbroken sequence of scoring shots by one player --> a breakThey do sound similar. My guess is it is called 'a break' because it is finished when you break the sequence and allow the other player go.

Quote from: touchingcloth on January 17, 2022, 01:41:04 PMIn my experience in pub games, people talk about who the person taking the "break" will be, and meaning to disrupt the triangle of balls. It's probably related to playing more pub pool than competition snooker.

Quote from: Endicott on January 17, 2022, 04:23:45 PMVery true. In pool the thing synonymous with a sequence of shots taken by one player is called a 'visit'.
